Vintage Bar and Grill
Vintage Bar and Grill Vintage Lounge opens Dec. 20, catering to Arizona State University students and area regulars. The second-story storefront at Fourth Street and Mill Avenue once housed the Coconut Club, which closed earlier this year due to liquor-licensing troubles. Vintage Lounge owner Mark Brown is optimistic about the area's appetite for a more upscale club, one that's slightly less casual, less college-focused. “What really sets us apart from some of the other clubs here on Mill is the quality of our presentation, both in the club itself and with our food,” said Brown, who is partners with Ryan Harris and Jay Johari. The trio also recently opened the rock-and-roll-themed Waters Edge bar in Chandler. “We're doing something very different with our menu,” Brown said. “We have a five-star chef from Scottsdale …, and he's really been turning out some amazing things.” The lounge serves dinner and will begin serving lunch in mid-January. Brown hopes to draw those looking for artfully presented food, served at student-friendly prices.
