Giving a Second Life to a Great Phoenician Gathering Place
By Katie Peige
Amid the rubble of the once legendary Beef Eaters restaurant lies a vision and a story that transcends the very symbol of its city’s namesake. Here, in uptown Phoenix, where Camelback meets Third Avenue, stands the skeleton of what was once one of the great gathering places in Phoenix. This place is where business deals were whispered in the sheltered secrecy of large, iconic black booths, and where events worthy of banquet halls were held. Here, memories of weddings, bar mitzvahs, birthday parties, and political meetings could fill the massive space to its rafters. It is a space begging to be the center of it all again, and with the vision of Venue Projects and Changing Hands Bookstore, it will be.
