What do you get when you mix the legendary Phoenix Hotel, chef Trevor Ogden (formerly of Mission Beach Café and Umami), the nightlife folks behind the Mighty and Wish, and decor guru Charles Doell (Monroe, Gitane)? Obviously, one hell of an after-hours hangout! The Phoenix Hotel’s brand-new lounge and restaurant, Chambers Eat + Drink, recently opened its doors in the space left vacant by Bambuddha, and boy is she a beauty. Lit up in fiery hues, the 3,000-square-foot spot is filled with lush furnishings including loveseats upholstered in lumberjack plaid; a record collection comprised of 7,000 vintage vinyl albums that line the walls, chic cabanas surrounding the pool, and a huge sign behind the indoor bar that spells "Be Amazing’" in old-fashioned light-bulbs. Just how should you dress for the new venue, which its owners describe as “vintage rocker meets Midcentury Modern”? Take a look at our simple four-ingredient guide.
