We simply set out to create a comfortable urban place to meet, hang out and grab some delicious food and great drinks at affordable prices. We envisioned a place that had several places within it - places to eat, drink, gather, connect. Our vision came to life in June 2010 and we never looked back. We are so proud to be a part of the community at large and become one of those favorite, unique urban spots in downtown Phoenix.


Bliss ReBAR is co-owned by Mark Howard, Jackson Kelly and Kevin Kelly. Mark also owns FEZ Restaurant & Bar and has always been actively involved in community organizations. Jackson brings a long-standing career in the music and hospitality industry and serves as our onsite guru for all things Bliss ReBAR. Kevin, a longtime Phoenix resident, has been in customer service industry for over three decades including several years at US Airways. As three AZ natives and longstanding Phoenix residents, we all believe in Phoenix, especially the downtown and central corridor, and wanted to be an active participant in its ongoing and critical revitalization.

They’re friendly. They’re funny. They’re unique. They’re sexy. Most importantly, they’re focused on making your visit to Bliss ReBAR the best it can be! Our staff makes our space. Many have been with us from the beginning while others have recently joined our team. Both front and back of the house worked tirelessly together to provide the best Bliss ReBAR has to offer.


It’s not unusual to see many of our staff volunteering for community events or assisting our regular guests with commitments outside of work.  While our team follows all guidelines, standards and policies for quality service you won’t find any corporate robots here.  Each of our team members brings their our personality and uniqueness as a way to be real, familiar and connected with our guests.  We work hard to keep a team assembled that reflects and celebrates the diversity of our community and insure that everyone is always welcome and safe at Bliss ReAR.

Why be in business if you aren’t actively involved in your community?  Sure it’s nice to have a local, independent small business to employ residents of the community. But it’s equally important to support the community through donations of service, product and revenue while also providing a space to hold various community and charitable organization events. 


Events that can help those organizations to raise awareness of what they do for the community. Events that raise money to support their efforts. Events that can bring community members together to make an even larger impact on improving our community. We are proud to be such an active participant in our community-at-large and all the smaller communities within representing a diverse, beautiful and brilliant assembly of individuals who can live, work and play as one.
