We've recently partnered with Get Your PHX to cohost great social meet ups around Phoenix. The mission is simple: Show up, en masse, to support those who pioneer new local restaurants, stores, bars and event spaces. Last month we headed to Groove on Grand and had a blast! Over 70 locals came out to support and enjoy - many had never been there before! Special thanks to our host, Groove on Grand, our awesome raffle donors, and delicious catering provided by Bruce Brown Catering.
This month, Get Your PHX and Local First Arizona are heading to The Pressroom off Madison and 5th Ave. Built in the 1920’s, this historic red brick building has now transformed into a premier event venue with 1000+person indoor capacity, ample outdoor area and a recently added full bar.
Have you noticed recently how many great music venues are popping up downtown? We've come a long way, baby!
Also performing exclusively for Get Your PHX attendees is Scandalesque, an exciting burlesque style show created by Julianna Curtis (Lady Fontayne) and Christy Zandlo (Pyrrha), two professional dancers and choreographers. Scandalesque features live music, dance theater, comedy, and circus arts into their must-see shows. It says a lot about the arts and creative class in Phoenix that this group has not only survived, but thrived.
We are excited and curious to see how owners Jason Charles and Narender Raju have upgraded the 14,000 square foot space, which once housed the most modern printing press in Arizona.
Adaptive reuse has been gaining some serious popularity since the City of Phoenix began the push back in 2008. The economic benefits of projects like The Pressroom are huge! This space, specifically, is a reflection of how we can retain the remarkable originality of great historic architecture downtown.
