Its exterior mixes the architecture of a strip mall with the design details of a warehouse loft space. Two distinct nightclubs connected by a translucent sky-bridge, Axis-Radius is one of the most fanatically popular nightclubs in the Phoenix metropolitan area. The side-by-side dance spaces offer a labyrinth of lounges and bar areas decorated in minimalist furnishings and space age design that at times feels a bit 1998. A long elegant staircase located within Axis leads to a main dance floor area flanked by two go-go podiums and elevated DJ area that offers celebrity glimpses of guests like Dave Navarro and DJ AM. On weekends the space is packed to capacity for weekly theme events and celebrity promoters usually with a hip-hop theme. A separate smoking and cigar lounge as well as the Amber VIP area are additional rendezvous spots for those willing to secure premium bottle service ($250 and up) or preferential entry.
If there’s a line out front it may be difficult to predict the doorman. Men in groups of two are more are better to secure a bottle of Patron ($350) and stakeout the VIP area for faster entry.
Two beloved nightclubs are linked by glass walkway leading to powerhouse DJ events and promoted dance nights.
