Good music makes up for bleh service at The Lost Leaf

OK, OK, I have to admit, I was a little harsh to Switch in this post.

The central Phoenix restaurant didn’t really make a huge impression on me the first few times I went there, but I think every time I went since then, I started to like it a little more each time.

And now I’m a convert. I’m sorry Switch. You are not medicore. You have a great variety of items on your menu that makes me and my friends salivate. And your cocktails, especially the red sangria, are strong and tasty.


And even when you’re busy, I’ve never had bad service there, and that definitely makes you stand out, too.

My pals and I hit up Switch recently before going to check out two of my friends’ bands, The Breakup Society and The Unlucky 8’s play at The Lost Leaf in downtown Phoenix.


I like The Lost Leaf because of its Flagstaff-y feel (hipster crowd, cool art on the walls), but I have to say, I’ve heard from other people and experienced it myself, the staff isn’t super-friendly. I’m not asking the bartenders at the bar to indulge me in 2 hours of conversation, but a simple smile or “You’re welcome” after a “Thank you” would be wonderful.

The bands complemented each other well, since they both have a pop rock sound, and they must have had a lot of fans, considering how packed the stage area was.

The Unlucky 8’s play the Rogue Bar in Scottsdale Saturday, January 23 at 9 p.m. Tickets are $5. See you there!
