Jade Bar at Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort and Spa is nothing short of luxurious. The resort is set into Camelback Mountain, perfect for toasting to romantic Arizona sunsets, and is covered with colorful, native plants accompanied by a pool, tennis courts, spa rooms and more.
Since its expansion, Elements restaurant and Jade Bar overlook different areas of the property, depending on which area you choose to dine, from a private room, open restaurant, patio, or balcony. All areas are simply beautiful. With the philosophy that the bar is an extension of the kitchen, Jade Bar offers Element’s fresh cuisine with its wine list and cocktails.
All of the cocktails are fresh, unique, and great with the Asian-inspired cuisine. Be sure to try the Cantaloupe, the Pepper Smash, or the Anejo Manhattan, which range from sweet and fruity to spicy and citrusy to a stronger classic with a twist.
