Bitter & Twisted Pop-Up Cocktail Garden
Starts Wednesday, January 28

With downtown Phoenix hosting Super Bowl Central, it's going to be hard to find a place to sit back, relax, and enjoy a drink. The good news is that Bitter & Twisted Cocktail Parlour is hosting an outdoor pop-up cocktail garden where you'll be able to eat, drink, and hang out right across from all the action. From noon to 2 a.m. this Wednesday through Sunday, the pop-up cocktail garden will feature live DJ music, daily cocktail specials, and discounted beers, as well as oversized benches and community party tables. The only downside is that convenience doesn't come cheap. It will cost $20 for all-day access to the garden, which does include re-entry. The pop-up cocktail garden will be open to those 21 and over only.
