Century Grand named Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards 2023 “Best U.S. Cocktail Bar”

In the world of mixology and hospitality, the Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards is the equivalent of the Oscars. This coveted event recognizes the best in the industry – from individual bartenders, cocktail menus to entire venues – for their exceptional contribution to the cocktail culture. It’s a platform that brings global recognition, honoring those who showcase outstanding commitment to the hospitality industry.


One standout establishment recently capturing the limelight is our very own Century Grand, an iconic bar in the heart of Phoenix, Arizona. This distinguished venue has been recognized for its groundbreaking achievements, carving out a unique space in the industry with its innovative approach and commitment to quality.



Century Grand isn’t just a bar; it’s an experience. The moment you step inside, you’re transported to a different era. Its unique architecture, reminiscent of an early 20th-century train station, sets the stage for an immersive journey. The diverse drink menu is just as impressive as the décor, with each cocktail telling a story. From the smoky allure of the ‘Gentlemen’s Heist’ to the stone fruit and silky notes in ‘Always Quiet in the Graveyard,’ there’s a drink for every palate.

But it’s not just the drinks or the ambiance that makes Century Grand a winner. It’s the people behind it. The bar staff are known for their dedication, creativity, and passion for mixology. As they say in their press release, “We’re not just serving drinks; we’re creating memories.”


Winning the Spirited Award isn’t just a feather in Century Grand’s cap; it’s a testament to Phoenix’s burgeoning bar scene. The award has put Phoenix on the global cocktail map, potentially driving tourism and contributing to the city’s cultural fabric.
