CI is in the tiny space next to Cowboy Ciao that has held the likes of SeeSaw, Digestif, and FnB.
With 20 seats at the bar, table seating for another 25-30 and maybe 25-30 on the patio, this place gets packed shortly after the 10pm opening, and for good reason. The cocktail program is run by Jason Asher and Micah Olson and they have some of the rising stars of the Phoenix bar scene behind the bar. Cocktails are spot on and inventive.

The theme of the space is constantly revolving as they opened with a "New Orleans Estate Sale" motif and now have shifted over to "Picasso's Secret Visit to Cuba". Next up this fall is "Shanghai Social Club".

The food is pretty wonderful too and themed accordingly. Chef Garrison Whiting is putting out some impressive small plates with some always awesome pastry treats from Country Velador (Super Chunk Sweets).

10 pm opening?!? Sigh. Unlikely I'll ever see the insides of that place, although it sounds intriguing!
