Although you might be intimidated by its Biltmore address, the prospect of sipping spirits inside the Art Deco opulence of chewing-gum magnate William Wrigley's 1930s-era mansion is too temping to resist. Wind your way up the spiral driveway and head inside this Spanish Colonial-style manor for a snifter or two at the tony lounge named for the late meatpacking heir Geordie Hormel (who purchased and restored the property with his wife Jamie in the early '90s). Drinks run the gamut from classic selections (vodka gimlets, Manhattans, and the Moscow Mule are a specialty) to handcrafted martinis, and cocktails. On any given weekend, you're bound to find a mix of curious tourists, swanky scenesters, and other members of a more well-heeled tax bracket, as well as anyone with an appreciation of vintage cocktails in an equally vintage setting. While a one-time $10 membership fee has more to do with sidestepping some zoning laws than actual exclusivity, the hallowed view of the Valley from Geordie's patio is well worth the price and makes you feel like the king of the hill.
The weekly affair features live music and half-price bottles of wine.

We've all had to attend stuffy banquets at country clubs, at the Heard Museum (where the Arizona Press Club has recently held its awards ceremony), or at some other hoity-toity spot in the PHX, only to wish we could get down to some real partying before the night is through. Well, the Wrigley Mansion is the perfect place for this. The Wrigley will be only too happy to reserve some space for you and yours to loosen your tie/let your hair down in its spacious digs, originally built by chewing... More »
