Phoenix's Platform 18 is one of North America's 50 best bars
A group that lists the continent's 50 best bars every year put out its latest rankings last week, and one Valley establishment made the grade.
- The bar is train-themed, with an interior that looks like an old Pullman car and digital screens for windows that make you feel like you're riding through scenic landscapes as you enjoy their craft cocktails.
- Century Grand's two other bars, Grey Hen and UnderTow, have similarly unique themes.
What they're saying: The review touts both Platform 18, calling it one of the most unique concepts on the list, and the Bourbon Street apothecary-themed Grey Hen.
- The design is impressive, but Platform 18 is more than just a theme, the reviewer writes — it's a world-class bar program as well.
- "Connoisseurs looking to suspend their imagination for a journey of sight and taste will be delighted by this ticket," the reviewer wrote.
