Fab AZ had the opportunity to check out this new hot spot, which functions as the center of campus gathering spot for Montelucia’s sophisticated and high-energy crowd.

The feel of CENTRO is very different from the rest of the resort. Montelucia is known for it’s Moroccan-themed style, but CENTRO has a bit more casual and hip vibe. When you first walk in you can’t help but notice the nine-panel media wall, making this a great spot to catch a game.

CENTRO Lounge’s innovative menu, created by Executive Chef Michael Cairns, offers a selection of shareable plates, sides and flatbreads with a Southwestern influence. Everything looked amazing, but we sampled some a handful of items that included:

Chips and Salsa Tasting with Guacamole

Everything tasted amazing, and every dish had a little spicy kick – nothing a tasty beverage can’t fix. CENTRO Lounge’s cocktail menu offers specialty drinks, wine by the glass and microbrews. CENTRO is planning to expand their beers on tap to include a variety of local brews.

CENTRO Lounge is open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and available after-hours for private parties. For more information, visit montelucia.com or call 480.627.3200.

  1. Last week, my husband and I stayed at the Montelucia and I loved the guacamole at the CENTRO Lounge. Do you share your recipe? I ate there twice, getting the guac both times. I also loved the guac/spinach/? wrap. Just not sure what the sauce was. Do you share that recipe as well? I live in Oklahoma, but we will be back….especially for the guacamole.
