Renovated Jade Bar at Sanctuary Reopens

Boasting a new design, a major expansion, and an only-in-Arizona craft cocktail concept, jade bar will reopen at Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain on Friday, October 11.


Known for spectacular views, jade bar at Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain closed for major renovations, with both the interior and exterior spaces being significantly enlarged. A new removable glass wall created a seamless connection between indoors and out, perfect for the fall and spring in Scottsdale. Another floor-to-ceiling glass wall allows for a spectacular unobstructed view of Paradise Valley below.

Outdoors, the 850-square-foot, semi-enclosed patio features a dramatic gas-fired fireplace, built-in banquettes, and brand-new furnishings in Sanctuary’s signature green accented with dark charcoal. A retractable fabric shade, misting system, and seasonal heaters create a comfortable climate year-round.

Indoors, the color scheme draws inspiration from the soft green and multitude of other hues found naturally in jade stone. Notable features of the bar is a drink rail made of authentic jade onyx and a multi-leveled ceiling, with aged bronze metal beams and tiers of recessed lighting centered over the drink rail, bar and lounge.

All interior furnishings have been custom-designed for jade bar, including cocktail and dining tables of forest green granite and wenge wood in an oval shape that complements the curved lines of the room. The custom seating ranges from comfortable chairs in metallic vinyls to plush, dark charcoal-flecked chenille sofas. Grasscloth in jade green lines the walls.

Master mixologist Ryan Magarian also transformed jade bar’s cocktail culture, beginning with a menu of smart, fun and delicious mixed drinks that emphasize execution and drinkability over extreme innovation. Complementing jade bar’s signature cocktails is a “secret” menu of classic drinks that serves as a resource for bartenders and a fun read for patrons. Nonalcoholic options include a tempting selection of healthy lifestyle elixirs.

Creme Brulee Donuts

Patrons of jade bar also enjoy a small plates menu, exclusive to the bar, created by Sanctuary’s celebrated executive chef, Beau MacMillan. These include shishito peppers, chicken liver mousse, citrus cured salmon, fire roasted bone marrow and crème brûlée donuts.
