Gilbert's ile.gal Modern Cocktail Kitchen plans to have a grand opening Dec. 29 as a rooftop bar at 313 N. Gilbert Road. The bar originally planned to open in April but postponed because of the pandemic, and additional health protocols will be in place. It has an artistic craft cocktail program, a full scratch kitchen that uses fresh flavors found throughout Arizona, and views of downtown Gilbert and the San Tan Mountains. The menu offers locally inspired artisanal dishes infused with desert flavors, fresh ingredients and small-batch products. The full craft cocktail bar focuses on an assortment of agave spirits, including mezcal, tequila, bacanora, raicilla and many more. http://ilegalaz.com
