Kimpton Eden

Eden Rooftop Bar to Open in Downtown Phoenix

Come Jan. 18, Eden is set to take over the former LUSTRE Rooftop Bar space at Kimpton Hotel Palomar Phoenix. The new rooftop bar in Phoenix promises an energetic setting with creative food and beverage programming.

Designed by California-based Wilson Ishihara, Eden at Kimpton Hotel Palomar Phoenix will be a 5,000-sq.-ft., 153-seat oasis on the hotel’s third floor. The vibrant Arizona desert-inspired aesthetic will be a striking contrast from the Downtown Phoenix skyline backdrop. The bar will serve as the focal point of the new rooftop space, alongside plush cabanas, communal seating and fire pits for cool nights.

Mixologist and Lead Bartender Clint Spotelson heads up Eden’s beverage program. The diverse and creative collection of cocktails will focus on unique ingredients and house-made syrups. Signature sips will include the Garden of Eden, a blend of serrano-and-cilantro-infused tequila, lime juice, agave nectar and Italicus, and the Desert Sunset, prepared with locally sourced Arizona Distilling Company commerce gin, gran ponche, pistachio orgeat, lemon juice and egg white. The new Phoenix rooftop bar’s beverage menu will also feature a variety of large-format cocktails and low- and zero-ABV options.

On the food side of things, Mediterranean flavors fused with elements of coastal cuisine will take center stage at Eden on a menu from Executive Chef Alexander Robinson. The bar’s bill of far will feature shared plates and tapas that will rotate seasonally, showcasing mindfully sourced produce and meats.

“Through Eden, we’re creating a revitalized rooftop experience for locals and hotel guests alike that matches the spirit and vibrancy of Downtown Phoenix,” says Jeremy Wilhide, general manager at Kimpton Hotel Palomar Phoenix, in a press release. “Creativity and bold yet approachable flavors will be at the heart of our food and beverage program and combined with high-energy ambiance and experiential design, Eden will bring a refreshed energy to the neighborhood.”

The new Phoenix rooftop bar will be open daily. For more information on Eden, visit
