Phoenix LoungeThe Loop | Website
The Wit Hotel has turned their lobby mezzanine into a lounge all its own, named for the funky phoenix mural by artist Lisa Alisa. Music acts ranging singer-songwriters to DJs set the scene for sipping and socializing on Thursday through Saturday nights. Take a seat on luxe pillow-strewn armchairs or cocktail tables overlooking the lobby and order classic cocktails such as the gin fizz, sazerac or aviation; the bar here is stocked only with super-premium liquors. The lounge shares Cibo Matto's kitchen but has its own menu of small plates, ranging from veal meatballs to fried rock shrimp to ahi tuna tartar.
