If your weekends are jam-packed with drinks and dining around the Scottsdale area, your not alone; but it may be time for a visit to downtown Phoenix. No longer a ghost town at dark, in the past few years the area has had an amazing increase in restaurant and nightlife business. One man responsible for this revival is Johnny Chu, who created Asian restaurant Fate and outdoor martini bar Next Door (which is, in fact, next door to Fate). Although downtown Phoenix remains primarily a business venue, since the opening of Fate, more restaurants and bars have been popping up in the area. Next up for Chu? Asian Tapas and Saki Bar Sens, which will open early September and will be located on First Street. www.sensake.com.
