Drinks before Pasta Bar(PHX)?
We're going to try Pasta Bar with a couple friends on Saturday night. We don't go downtown much at night so am not terribly familiar with the area. We're planning to take the train out from East Valley and thought we'd get a drink or a glass of wine before dinner.
Suggestions? Needs to be walking distance from a light rail station but not necessarily the Roosevelt/Central station. Getting on at Apache/101.
PastaBAR has its liquor license now, so you could drink there. Before they had their license they were steering people to Sens.

I sincerely second the Roosevelt. Lots of style and local charm. Great, low-key atmosphere (* when it's not overflowing with people of course). Plus, it is within a very short walking distance to Pasta Bar.
It would be a great intro to your night.

There is also a pub/restaurant in the same center - Turf Restaurant and Pub owned by the same folks that own Seamus McCaffreys slated to open on Friday (although I read they already had a soft opening). I haven't heard anything about but it would be close by!
Thanks everyone. We got downtown later than anticipated last night so we just had some wine at the PastaBar before dinner. Turf looks like it might be a nice place for a beer first next time though...anyone been in there?
The Roosevelt exit is definitely the shorter walk. We got off at Van Buren going and it's not much longer though.
