Next stop for the Poshmark City Guides? Phoenix, Arizona! The state may be known for the heat but there’s so much more to it than the blazing weather. Take note for when you plan on visiting this city!
If you plan on shopping for yourself or for your friends & family, check out these recommended spots:
Last Chance (1919 E Camelback Rd Phoenix, AZ 85016)
To quote Devil Wears Prada, “gird your loins” before stepping into Last Chance. Last Chance is Nordstrom’s final-clearance store for everything returned or overstocked. Hellloooo shopping spree!
Buffalo Exchange (3450 N 7th St Phoenix, AZ 85014)
Everyone who’s made their way into a Buffalo Exchange knows how addicting it can be to walk inside and not stop at every rack. Perfect place to find some of the best and trendy clothing right away!
Phoenix Premium Outlets (4976 Premium Outlet Way , Chandler, AZ 85226-5501)
Who doesn’t love a good outlet? From Nike to Calvin Klein to Saks Fifth Avenue, there’s a store for literally everyone’s taste! We wouldn’t blame you if you spent your whole day there!
Maybe skip the hot coffee and grab yourself a cold brew to kick start your day!
Provisions Coffee Bar (4501 N 32nd St Phoenix, AZ 85018)
Go for the aesthetics, stay for the coffee. Provisions Coffee Bar has an amazing interior setting that makes you wish your house looked like this. The open space patio makes this the perfect place to hang with an iced coffee.
Lux Central (4400 N Central Ave Phoenix, AZ 85012)
Need a place to work? This is it. With multiple community tables and big comfy couches surrounding the area, it’s hard to spend your whole day here.
Liberty Market (230 N Gilbert Rd Gilbert, AZ 85234)
Highly recommended if you’re meeting more than a few friends for a cup of joe. Not hungry? Skip the line and go straight to the coffee bar.
Honorable mentions: The Henry, Gold Bar, Bergies Coffee Roast House
Posh. Fizz. Clink. is the motto. Here are a few recommendations for when you’re out with a PFF!
OHSO Brewery (10810 N Tatum Blvd Ste 126 Phoenix, AZ 85028)
Grab your pup, family/friends, and make it a party underneath the hanging lanterns.
The Yard (5632 N 7th St Phoenix, AZ 85014)
According to one Posher, The Yard in Uptown Phoenix is “ALWAYS a place to go.” Bring one PFF or five and have a friendly cornhole competition!
The Vig (6015 N 16th St Phoenix, AZ 85014)
Mix things up with your PFF and enjoy some live music at The Vig while playing a game of bocce ball! Also, keep your eyes to the ceiling. You just may see some amazing chalkboard art.
Honorable mentions: Postino Highland and The Porch
There were so many restaurant recommendations, it was hard to choose. All we know is that Phoenix does not slack on the food scene!
Snooze (2045 E Camelback Rd Ste A17 Town and Country Phoenix, AZ 85016)
Who says breakfast can’t be served all day? According to another Posher, Snooze has “the best specialty pancakes around and it doesn’t hurt that they have lots of gluten free options!”
Postino (3939 E Campbell Ave Phoenix, AZ 85018)
In 1940, Postino started its story inside a vacant, 1940’s brick post office. (As you know, we love a post office moment!) Years later, this place is thriving with $5 Happy Hour wines and an amazing array of bruschetta boards!
SumoMaya (6560 N Scottsdale Rd Scottsdale, AZ 85253)
Somehow, someway, SumoMaya found a way to combine Mexican and Asian flavors to form delicious tapas to fulfill every taste bud.
Honorable mentions: Mora Italian, Joe’s Farm Grill, Pita Jungle, Windsor, Doughbirds, Picazzos Healthy Italian Kitchen, and Steak 44.
Adventure is out there in Phoenix, Arizona. Just ask these locals:
