According to a press release shared with What Now Phoenix, the owners of The Americano and Cala are teaming up on a new cocktail and live music lounge called Tell Your Friends, which will open in early spring 2024.
Accessed through a side door at The Americano, which is located in north Scottsdale at 17797 N Scottsdale Road, the lounge will host nightly performances featuring vocalists, musical acts, and entertainers.
The press release shared: “The cocktail-driven menu will feature a seasonal rotation of classic and craft cocktails, an exceptional wine list and small bites bearing the signature styles of culinary titans Conant and MacMillan. Leading the interior design is Basile Studio, a California firm known for its award-winning work at such notable restaurants as Born and Raised and Morning Glory, both in San Diego. Construction started today by LGE Design Build. Tell Your Friends is a collaboration between Creation Hospitality, a division of Phoenix-based Creation co-founded by David Sellers and Bob Agahi, known for developing, operating and partnering in some of the most successful hospitality concepts nationwide, and Clive Collective, founded by restaurant industry veterans Mikis Troyan and Justin Massei.”
It also disclosed details about the interior design customers can expect: “Guests of Tell Your Friends will enter a dimly lit vestibule enhanced by dramatic floral wallcoverings and a black-tile accented staircase that leads to the intimate lounge. Upon the descent, the space begins to come to life as the venue reveals itself with rich maroon velvet drapes, mirrored walls and fanciful lighting. As the curtains are drawn, the focal point emerges – a captivating bar adorned with floor-to-ceiling lights that seamlessly trace their way across the ceiling, creating a dazzling connection to the adjacent stage.”
Their menu will include a seasonal rotation of cocktails, a wine list, and small bites.
The owners did not immediately reply to What Now Phoenix for comment.
