Looking for a great evening out with your significant other, or just a couple of good friends looking for a great night of dining, fun and laughter- then we have a couple of spots you need to check out.
Central Phoenix is a fun spot to catch a lot of delicious spots to eat and enjoy a night out on the town. Recently, one of my best girlfriends and I got the opportunity to check out a couple of wonderful spots for dinner, dessert, drinks and laughs.
First off, our evening began with a night at Hula’s Modern Tiki along 7thStreet. We both tried one of the signature cocktails to start the evening off and certainly were not disappointed in our choice. There is a long menu of alcoholic beverage options as well as non-alcoholic drinks for those who would prefer to refrain from drinking. My choice that evening was Hula’s Hurricane and it was very tasty. There was quite a bit of alcohol in the drink, so all I had was the one beverage but definitely worth trying again!
For dinner, we enjoyed two different dishes. Between the two of us, we enjoyed the Ahi Tacos and Steak Sandwich. Both very different tastes and flavors and both very delicious options. There are a ton of choices for everyone and every pallet – you would be hard pressed to find something you didn’t like! We also tried the Key Lime Pie for dessert and oh my goodness, was that delicious.
After our dinner at Hula’s, it was time for some more fun just down the street. We made a stop at Stock & Stable to test out some of their small plates. We got a small sampling of Meatballs, Roasted Beets and by far our favorite, Kung Pow Cauliflower. The flavors of all these dishes was worth the stop alone, but that Kung Pow Cauliflower, every bite so crispy and flavorful!
After all the delectable dishes, we headed upstairs to the restaurants speakeasy, Honor Amongst Thieves. An evening hghlight for sure with a secret staircase through the kitchen for diners of Stock & Stable, that brought you almost into another world. The environment was quite, dark and the bartenders were definitely entertaining to watch.
Each of us enjoyed a specialty drink, making the most of our visit. From start to finish, these cocktails were more of a work of art than anything else. Specialty ice cubes, flavor combinations you’d never considered before, special garnishes and more. Each drink delicately made for each customer.
If you are looking for some very cool hot spots to check out in the valley, spots you’d never really tried before, definitely put both of these on your list.
