Downtown Phoenix never fails to surprise and delight. DPJ’s Live PHX series captures the moments that illustrate why we love life in our city.

When you live in a city, you’re inevitably surrounded by concrete, metal and glass. Sometimes you just crave a little green, and while there are numerous spots downtown where you can fill your need for green, there’s just something special about stumbling across a garden patio when you least expect it. Tucked away just west of Central Avenue on Vernon, the lush garden landscape and at Oven + Vine is truly an oasis in the desert.
