The Dressing Room

About This Project

Located in the heart of Roosevelt Row, a walkable creative district in the urban core of downtown Phoenix, the Dressing Room restaurant and patio, designed by AIA award winning firm Mark Ryan Studio, is an intimate urban hangout and Phoenix’s first alley-turned-patio space. The interior has a raw, industrial feel with exposed brick and wood beams, steel wall panels and window framing and original concrete flooring.

The 500-sf restaurant incorporates a full-kitchen, bar and dining area that connects with the adjacent MonOrchid structure — a result of intensive coordination between the design and construction trades to ensure the layout and detailing of building systems were meticulously executed to maximize space and functionality. The patio utilizes warm vertical grain red cedar accents and blackened steel details while featuring a 25+ foot Arizona native mesquite tree transported from the desert to its new home in Phoenix’s coolest alley destination. The building exterior is energized by a retouched JB Snyder mural, continuing the trend of murals in the Downtown.
