The Second Story Liquor Bar Offers Imaginative Cocktails and American Cuisine

    Located in Old Town Scottsdale, The Second Story Liquor Bar has a intimate and refined setting to enjoy their robust flavors and fresh menu and fine spirits and savory cocktails.

    “We spent the last three years really developing this concept and designing a sophisticated second story space to give our guest that intimate experience. Add to that - an all-star cast in the kitchen and bar, we think this will be a concept Old Town can be proud to call their new Liquor Bar,” said Owner Tommy Plato.

    Executive Chef Josh Bracher, formerly of Posh Restaurant and Capital Grille, and his culinary team have created a menu blending international ingredients with modern favorites.

    Chef Bracher hopes the inviting atmosphere allows guests to live in the moment, and enjoy the layers, depth, textures and flavor components that make up every dish. “We want entertain our guests and show them some unique pairings and inspiration that we have gathered from our travels around the world.” For those who love BBQ try the 24 Hr braised beef short ribs. Sample the Ahi Poke Asian Chopped Salad, Seared Caesar, or Inside Out Caprese Burrata. Other favorites are the Duck Confit and the Niman Ranch Bone-In Lamb Chops.

    John Christie, formerly of Old Town Whiskey, leads the team at the bar, and has designed 12 signature cocktails that recognize current mixology trends but pay homage to the classics.
    “We tell stories of the bourbon in a drink, or the winemaker behind a wine along with the inspiration behind a dish,” said Christie. “There’s a story behind everything, and really that’s the idea behind Second Story Liquor Bar.”
