The all-new cocktail lounge, Honor Amongst Thieves (5538 N. 7th St.) officially opened to the public on Thursday, June 19, 2016, in the heart of Central Phoenix’s red-hot 7th Street dining and drinking district. Housed inside a stylish second-floor space directly above the new Stock & Stable gastropub is Honor Amongst Thieves. Open daily from 6 pm to close, the striking, wood-accented Honor Amongst Thieves tempts with an extensive list of handcrafted drinks stolen from the honored classics. Not to mention, a compact yet mouth-watering menu of bar bites and cheese & cured meat boards whipped up by chef Joe Absolor of Stock & Stable.
Teslar created a cocktail program that dovetails perfectly with his food menu. He’s created a nose-to-tail American-style gastropub menu filled with great comfort foods, so the cocktail menu will include many similar ingredients and flavor profiles to create natural pairings, such as deeply flavored infusions and plenty of earthy, compact notes. Most important, these drinks are all about the flavor and creating a consistently great-tasting drink, not about spending 20 minutes on each one to convince people that it’s quality. Just like the food, each drink combines top-quality ingredients and preparations, just without any of the pretention.
Accessed via a staircase located around the back of Stock & Stable (as well as a second entrance hidden next to Stock & Stable’s kitchen), Honor Amongst Thieves patrons will discover a cozy 80-person space. Sidle up to the wooden bartop or settle into a comfy couch and soak in the intimate lighting and the complete lack of windows (like a true cocktail lounge should be). Then get ready to sip and savor your way through an artful menu of Cocktails, Martinis and Tonics, as well as unique offerings such as Cheekies and Citywides. The menu reflects the space – dark, cozy, and whiskey forward. For more information visit Honor Amongst Thieves’ website, www.honoraz.com.
