Third Rising

July 11, 2016
Phoenix LA

This Phoenix is rising from the ashes of its bulldozed former quarters. After being closed at the hands of the city council, then re-opened and eventually demolished to make way for an expanding Metro line, the hip Beverly Hills bolthole has finally found a beautiful new home on West Third Street. With a chicer look and an exciting new addition of a patio for screenings and games out the back, in the end it’s the top selection of whiskies, craft draughts and signature steak-frites that steals the show.

The new digs are inside a former carpet and tile business that, like all Beverly babes of a certain age, has been nip-tucked head to toe by Phoenix owner Adolfo Suaya and his archi accomplice Christoph Kapeller. A marble slab bar is the centrepiece, with dark wood communal benches, golden fixings, dim lighting and a mosaic tiled floor completing the swanky fit out.

Those who lamented the statement-making single item menu at the former Phoenix will be pleased to learn that they have expanded their offerings to include other brasserie fare, like chicken paillard and a house salad, as well as that famed steak n’ fries.

For gargling, you can raise a glass to Ryan Sweeney and the Goat Group for curating a top notch roll call of malts and other spirits, craft beer, wine and ‘tails. Head there on a weeknight between 5pm and 7pm for the happiest of hours. Cheers, dears!
