There are endless things to love in Downtown Phoenix, but we thought we would highlight just a few here that we’ve been enjoying all summer! From coffee, to pinball, to movies in an iconic theater, here’s how we’ve been loving the last few months.
But first, coffee
Kähvi Coffee + Cafe at MonOrchid finally opened!
With Scandinavian and Tulum vibes, Kähvi leads a double life as a coffee house by day and wine bar by night. You pretty much could start AND end your day right here.
Head over to @drinkkahvi to learn more and don’t forget to give them a follow!
Pizza & Pinball
Ziggy’s Magic Pizza is a cool downtown pizza shop with a David Bowie theme and a secret….the back door leads to Stardust Pinbar.
Stardust serves delicious cocktails and has themed pin ball machines to end the night right. Our recommendations: The BBQ Chicken Pizza and the Hawaiian were soooo good. And the GF crust was great! You can check them out here to learn more.
Movies in an Iconic Theater
First, here’s a little bit of Downtown Phoenix history. The Orpheum Theater opened in 1929 and is still putting on shows to this day. With seating for up to 1,364 theater goers, it was originally used for vaudeville acts, but has also been screening movies lately. This summer they showed classics like The Goonies, The Sound of Music, and Jurassic Park, and have an upcoming showing of Casablanca.
If you’ve never been to The Orpheum, we highly recommend taking in a show or movie there. You can check out all the cool stuff happening at The Orpheum HERE.
These are just a few of the many things to love in Downtown Phoenix, and we hope our summer favorites have given you some ideas for new spots to check out!
We’re always on the lookout for new places to try and would love to hear from you. So, what are your favorite Downtown Phoenix bars, restaurants, and activities? Tag us on Instagram in all of your #DTPhx and we’ll make sure to check out those spots too! @urbanconnectionphx
