Of course, you can always get food with downtown's best craft beers and cocktails as well. For beer, you can't go wrong at Greenwood Brewing, Arizona Wilderness Brewing Co., Angel's Trumpet Ale House, or Pedal Haus Downtown. If you're looking for a craft cocktail, try From the Rooftop, Palma, Rough Rider, or Sake Haus.
If you just need a night out with friends, Roosevelt's top nightlife spots include The Vig Fillmore, Luckys Indoor/Outdoor, Cham Pang Lanes, Ghost Donkey, The Pemberton, Barcoa Agaveria and The Churchill.
You'll find an array of local foods, snacks, gifts and more at the Downtown Phoenix Farmer's Market as well.

Street ArtBack to Top of List
It's nearly impossible to turn a corner on Roosevelt Row without seeing a mural. Local artists such as La Morena, Ashley Macias, Thomas "Breeze" Marcus, and Lalo Cota have helped to make downtown Phoenix a beautiful, expressive place to be. 1½ Street Mural Project next to The Churchill is the best place to see an array of street art, but we've got some other suggestions as well. Check out our favorite murals around town, as well as our favorite murals at hotels too.
