Honor Amongst Thieves, an upscale, speakeasy-style bar located above the restaurant Stock & Stable, is set to open this evening in Phoenix.
True to the idea of a speakeasy, Honor Amongst Thieves is accessed via a back stairwell leading up to a door with a barred peephole. The bar can accommodate up to eighty people, with velvet couches, a wooden bar, black leather panels, walls decorated with antiques, and intimate lighting giving the impression of a private club. This atmospheric décor is a stark contrast to the downstairs Stock and Stable, a vibrant gastropub featuring modern American fare.
As part of their innovative drinks menu, cocktails will include the Long Hall, a blend of rooibos tea, blood orange and lemon juice, cardamom, hops, and Kikori Whiskey; the Rutte of the Problem, featuring honeydew matcha, wasabi, Yellow Chartreuse, lime, and Rutte Celery Gin; the Remington, a blend of Amaro del Capo, chamomile cordial, white chocolate, and shortbread scotch; and Misery Loves Company, a mix of Peychaud’s, cinnamon crème, Leopold’s Aperitivo, Crème de Noyaux, and Asbach Brandy.
Signature martinis are also offered, including Kaffir and Loathing, with rose essence, kaffir lime, Dolin Blanc, and Aylesbury Duck Vodka; the Dillinger, with dill bitters, onions, Maurin Blanc Vermouth, and Ford’s Gin; the Pitch and Roll, with Lucques olives, Carpano Bianco Vermouth, St. George Terroir Gin, and saltwater, as well as the Red Grant, with beet juice, Cocchi Americano, Sapphire, and Absolut.
Honor Amongst Thieves also offers a unique size of drink called a “Cheekie,” which is a smallish shot.
Gifted local mixologist Stephanie Teslar will be in charge the crafting of the bar’s unique offerings. She is a ten-year veteran of the field – having previously lent her skills to establishments such as the Palomar Hotel’s BlueHound Kitchen and FireSky Resort.
Honor Amongst Thieves in located at 5538 N. 7th Street, Phoenix, AZ 85014.
