Lyft, whose mission is to improve people’s lives with the world’s best transportation, today announced its fifth annual Lyftie Awards, a program that recognizes the most popular destinations in cities across the country. This year, the Lyfties expanded to celebrate more than 50 markets, including Phoenix, and refreshed its categories to celebrate multimodal transportation and its driver communities.

The winners for the 2019 Lyftie Awards in Phoenix are:

• Most Celebrated Venue: Talking Stick Resort Arena

• Late Night Neighborhood: Melrose District

• Most Celebrated Restaurant/Bar: Clubhouse at MĀYĀ

“Lyft believes in improving the lives of our communities and this year, we’re proud to celebrate the businesses, drivers and different modes of transportation that makes each of our cities special,” said Drena Kusari, regional director of Lyft’s Southwest region. “We know that the backbone of our communities rely on people and ways they’re connected to thrive. We look forward to championing Phoenix’s winners for the fifth year in a row and providing reliable, affordable transportation.”

“We at SpellBound Entertainment are extremely proud and humbled to know that MĀYĀ is preferred destination in the Valley,” said Thomas Lawson, regional manager for SpellBound Entertainment Group, which owns MĀYĀ. “Our patrons’ safety is our highest concern and knowing Lyft is providing their safe passage to and from our venue has our minds at ease.”
