Local Lifestyle

Life in Dr. Phillips is good. On the weekends, a round of golf or an upbeat fitness class are both popular ways to start the day. “Restaurant Row” is a favorite place for locals to reward themselves afterward, or just celebrate the end of a long work week. A few nationally recognized steakhouses and seafood restaurants are popular options, along with unique, locally run eateries offering a wide selection of tasty dishes. Shopping sprees, spa days, and manicures are also favorite ways for locals to pass the time and enjoy life as it should be.

Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping

Sandy Lake Road is the main communal thoroughfare of Dr. Phillips. Lined with both widely known and locally loved eateries and shops, it is a central meeting point to gather, celebrate and toast to the good life. 
Many delicious, well known establishments can be found along Dr. Phillips’ “Restaurant Row,” such as Ruth’s Chris, Eddie V’s, and The Melting Pot, but one community specific favorite can be found at The Whiskey. This all American hangout features a full bar including 100 whiskey options, 150 scotches, and nearly 200 different bourbons. Their expansive drink selection pairs well with revamped favorites like fried mushrooms, bangin’ shrimp, and gourmet burgers.
One of Dr. Phillips’ best spots to pamper yourself and truly enjoy a carefree day is Allora Day Spa. This elegant day spa specializes in luxurious treatments for the face and body such as scrubs, peels, and massages. Allora is open seven days a week to offer its visitors peace, tranquility, and some time away from the stressors of the outside world. 
The Marketplace at Phillips and Bellagio Town Center is heavily concentrated with trendy and popular boutiques. Like the nearby restaurants, patrons will recognize many nationally known brands and appreciate smaller, locally owned businesses, bakeries, florists, pet shops, and cigar clubs.
