This creativity-fueled district links downtown to several residential neighborhoods. Former homes have been lovingly converted to cool hangouts of all sorts. Patios are plentiful among restaurants and bars, and shopping the funky little boutiques yields surprises. Independent films, craft beer, art openings and special events make RoRo hot.
See & Do
Whether you're appreciating the plentiful street art of touring some of Phoenix's best art galleries and museums, Roosevelt Row is an art lover's paradise. Of particular interest is the Heard Museum of Native Cultures and Art, where visitors can familiarize themselves with the folk art of the desert Southwest and purchase handmade items from the gift shop.
Roosevelt Row is home to a collection of hip and trendy Phoenix eateries catering to the neighborhood's artistic crowd. Options range from sweet and savory crepes at Jobot Coffee to elevated bar food at Bliss ReBAR.
There isn't really a bad night to visit Roosevelt Row, thanks to its collection of chic bars and live music venues, but nightlife here really shines on First Fridays, when the district's galleries and museums stay open late for one of the country's biggest self-guided art walks.
