Central Wine and Model Citizen Open Doors

Central Wine Bar

Two new retail outlets, Central Wine Bar, a brand new wine bar and retail outlet and Model Citizen, a full-service Hair and Make-up Salon and latest member of the Leidan Mitchell Salon family officially opened for business on Tuesday, February 11th.  The two business share a multi-use space located between George & Dragon and Clever Koi, in a space that formerly housed John McCain’s election office at 4236 N. Central Avenue, Phoenix, AZ  85012.

Jenna Rousseau, the owner of Central Wine, spent many years in Italy learning about wine, and resided in the San Francisco area working at numerous wineries before moving back to the Valley.  Because of her connections in California, she will be offering wines that otherwise have no distribution in the Arizona market.  She will also be offering bottles of wine with a minimal corkage fee of $5.00 and even a delivery service.  So if you find a bottle of wine you like, you can order it by the case and have it delivered free of charge.  They will also have 6 wines and 4 beers on tap as well as cheese, sausage and fruit plates round out of offerings.  Central Wine will feature Happy Hour specials and be open Tues-Thurs 12-9 Fri-Sat 12-11.

Model Citizen

Jacki Tatman and Erin Essert, Co-Owners of Model Citizen, say that the salon is the latest in the Leidan Mitchell family of Salons, and will continue to house the most highly trained hair stylists and makeup artists, along with an eyelash extension specialist.  Model Citizen will have 12 hair stations, a make-up area and numerous stylists available to meet any hair care need.  They have highly trained Goldwell color specialists, and are proud to offer the full line of Bumble and Bumble retail products. Model Citizen will be open Monday through Saturday with evening appointments available.  Please call ahead for your appointment at 602-296-0909.
