“100 Days of Summer” Series Kicks Off at LUSTRE Rooftop Garden
Soak up the sunshine poolside all summer long with weekly events at Hotel Palomar Phoenix

Summer in the city has never been hotter and LUSTRE Rooftop Garden in Downtown Phoenix plans to keep things cool with events nearly every day of the week, all summer long with its “100 Days of Summer” event series.

Perched on the third-floor pool deck at Kimpton’s Hotel Palomar Phoenix, LUSTRE is an oasis in the heart of Downtown Phoenix with sweeping views of the city skyline, fresh cocktails and seasonal menu items perfect for enjoying poolside.

New this summer, LUSTRE is introducing an activity called Champong, a gentlemen’s and ladies’ game that is played like beer pong, but with champagne. Pinky fingers in the air when drinking is considered proper form and a variety of champagne brands are available for all tastes and budgets.

    Free to the public? That’s pretty awesome but they will have to watch occupancy or the county will clampdown on them… We have some odd laws here… No eating or drinking while in a pool, even if your legs are dangling in it. Also keep in mind a person in Phoenix sweats 1 to 2 quarts of sweat per hour while in a pool, so average 50 people for 12 hours and you’ve got 300 gallons of sweat a day being added to the pool. These are great deals and Palomar is a great property… I think this summer everyone will be at Palomar and Clarendon for sure, the rest of the hotels will be empty!
