The ownership group of Copper Blues and Stand Up Live in downtown Phoenix are proud to debut a brand new entertainment experience—“CB Live”—coming to Desert Ridge Marketplace Fall 2018. The ultimate entertainment destination will occupy more than 11,000 square feet of space across from Barnes & Noble in The District area.

This dynamic venue will boast a wide range of premium live entertainment, including stand-up comedy, national music tours, cabaret performances, celebrity appearances and much more.

“CB Live is the perfect addition to Desert Ridge Marketplace,” said Jenny Cushing, Vice President of Leasing for Vestar. “The combination of comedy, live music and great food offerings fills a void in the community and further reinforces our role to provide the finest in shopping, dining and entertainment.”

Bar Napkin, a global creative agency in downtown Phoenix, has been retained by CB Live to help bring the vision of this concept to life.
“CB Live will be the icon of entertainment venues, marking the evolution of the Copper Blues brand and leading the way in the future of restaurant and live entertainment,” said Joel Bachkoff, Co-Founder of CB Live. “We are excited to be a part of Desert Ridge Marketplace and provide a distinct entertainment option to the North Phoenix area.”

In February 2017, Desert Ridge Marketplace set out to bring new, elevated entertainment experiences to the North Valley—part of its mission to grow with the surrounding community.

Recent additions to Desert Ridge Marketplace, include celebrated culinary destinations such as Barrio Queen, MidiCi Neapolitan Pizza Company, Sizzle Korean Barbeque and the recently opened Flower Child.
