The Roaring '20s are back and we are here for it. One of the coolest bars in Phoenix has a train car you can board for a virtual ride around the Proprietor's Estate. And did we mention they hand you a complimentary glass of champagne when you sit down?
Century Grand is a modern food spot that emphasizes dining with a view, specialty boozy creations, and a unique atmosphere. Designed to feel like an upscale 1920s train car, this immersive cocktail and dining experience is something you won’t want to miss.
This train ride simulation on Platform 18 is accomplished through technology in the windows, making it look like you're winding your way through snow-covered mountains in Colorado. It may feel incredibly realistic and like you're really on a train.
The cocktail menu has over 40 specialty drink options, plus boozy desserts if you're in the mood for something sweeter.
If you’ve ever watched The Great Gatsby and wished desperately you could experience some of that magic for yourself, here’s your chance.
The restaurant is divided into three sections: Century Grand (food and cocktails), Platform 18 (immersive cocktail experience), and Grey Hen (cocktails and option to purchase single-barrel liquors).
Reservations are highly recommended as seating is limited.
There’s even a dress code to maintain the aura of 1920s high society: business casual at the minimum is allowed, dressing to impress is encouraged.
Century Grand offers most of the menu in a Dim Sum fashion. Waiters with carts glide around the dining space and offer diners their choice of small plates and appetizers. There are traditional menu items as well.
Passengers “book a ticket” (make a reservation) for their seat on Platform 18 and are taken on a 90-minute journey through mountainous terrain.
This experience serves only cocktails, food is not available during the train ride. It makes for a great way to start an evening or as a fun nightcap!
So far the Roaring '20s are looking pretty swell.
