The venue is from the owners of Stand Up Live and Copper Blues, taking up more than 11,000 square feet of space.

Desert Ridge Marketplace will soon be home to a new entertainment venue.

CB Live is set to open in late fall, bringing a diverse selection of live shows to the northeast Phoenix outdoor shopping center at Loop 101 and Tatum Boulevard.

The project is from the ownership group of Stand Up Live and Copper Blues in downtown Phoenix, and will open in an 11,000-square-foot space across from Barnes & Noble in an area known as The District. It is a venue, restaurant and bar all in one, serving lunch, dinner, brunch, happy hour and late-night eats.



18 restaurants opened from steak to sushi to desserts while 3 closed, including a Midwestern favorite.

The venue and restaurant, which stands for Copper Blues Live, includes 450 seats and a patio. The room can accommodate one big show or multiple smaller shows. The lineup will include stand-up comedy, nationally touring musicians, cabaret shows, celebrity appearances and other types of entertainment.
