Fridays at jade: Music. Food. Starlight.

T.G.I.F.! Celebrate the start of the weekend and relax on Sanctuary’s jade bar patio and enjoy the fabulous views of Paradise Valley with live music, great food and chilled cocktails!

Vocalist Stephanie King will delight your ears from 8 to 11 p.m. with no cover charge. This talented artist is inspired by many genres of music and interprets songs in her own soulful style alongside Acoustic Guitarist Mark Hiiva.
