We were only in Phoenix for one night. We needed to stay downtown. We chose Sheraton Phoenix Downtown. Sheraton is a good brand so we knew it would be fine.
We also needed to have dinner and we wanted something on the nicer side. After some research on my own and help from Visit Phoenix. I kept coming to District, which was conveniently located at the Sheraton.
The Sheraton is not only nice, it’s beautiful. The outside entrance and lobby are grand but not over-done. Modern without being pretentious. The staff who greeted and checked us in were friendly and warm.
The room was just as you might expect. Clean. Done nicely. Nothing too extreme.
It was Happy Hour so we headed to the bar at District. This is a happening scene. We waited a minute to get two seats at the bar. At first, it seemed the servers weren’t very helpful but the nicest bartender greeted us and got our drinks quickly. She then offered us a (free) appetizer…Singh Farm Honey Wings with Pickled Jalapeno and Cilantro Lime Salt. Delicious. Cilantro Lime Salt is awesome!
We also got the Schreiner’s Bacon Wrapped Dates and the Hummus appetizers. We didn’t love the dates but I must say the bartender described it perfectly. She was friendly, warm, quick, and knowledgable.
The repeat business there is amazing too. How do I know? Well, all the bartenders knew many of the patrons on a first name basis. I think that’s a testament to how cool of a place it is.
Unfortunately, we enjoyed it so much we stayed at the bar longer than anticipated and couldn’t stay long enough to have a full dinner. But, I would go back there in a heart beat, for the food, for the drink, and especially for the friendly service.
Here’s what I loved:
