LON’s at the Hermosa Inn.

Originally hand-crafted in the 1930s by cowboy artist Lon Megargee as his private residence and art studio, LON’s at the Hermosa is the Four Diamond culinary centerpiece of The Hermosa Inn and is celebrated for its globally inspired Arizona fare and award-winning wine list. Locally sourced ingredients power LON’s menus, featuring classic and seasonal dishes that reflect both the adventurous spirit and the sophisticated artistry of its namesake.

LON’s offers several idyllic settings for a romantic lunch, brunch, or dinner. The ruggedly handsome dining room and bar, LON’s Last Drop, feature several cozy fireplaces and exude the resort’s luxury desert feel using traditional Southwestern architecture, adobe bricks, wood beams, hand-painted Mexican tile, and many one-of-a-kind embellishments reflecting its artistic heritage.

The picturesque patio, renowned for its explosively colorful flowerbeds, desert flora, trickling fountain, twinkling lights and a massive wood-burning fireplace, boasts breathtaking views of nearby Camelback Mountain. Live entertainment on the weekends enhances the already dreamy vibe, encouraging guests to savor a handcrafted cocktail by one of the many fireplaces on the adjacent LON’s Last Drop patio.

For the ultimate in romance, LON’s underground wine cellar can be reserved for private candle-lit dinners for two to 12 guests, where diners can savor a luxurious five-course menu with wine pairings. Featuring 1890s Chicago brick, reclaimed beams and beautiful rustic tables, hundreds of spectacular bottles from LON’s award-winning wine list are displayed amidst the soft glow of countless votive candles, creating a magical and memorable setting.
