The ultra-stylish Fez is a great spot for casual lunch and dinner, late-night drinks, and chill music. But if you can only make it out once a week, be sure to stop by on Fridays, when the Downtown bar hosts Fez Fridays with menu including more than 20 specialty cocktails. 

Fez Fridays is all about the $3 Vodka Pomegranate Press

​The Place: 3815 N. Central Ave., Phoenix, AZ, 85012

The Time: Every Friday, All Day. 

The Cover: None.

The Parking: Lot. 

The Bar: The feature drink of Fez Fridays is the $3 Vodka Pomegranate Press, a strong but not too tasty mix of vodka, pomegranate juice, club soda and Sprite. The seriously swanky bar offers 22 different $8.95 specialty martinis. 

The fixture of the Fez menu is the fresh and fruity g-spot, which includes three versions of grapefruit flavors. The g-spot is only $3 during Fez's weekly Thirsty Thursday promotion. 

The Music: The music in the food, drinks and music slogan is strictly canned dance club beats.

The Style: A highly stylish crowd that fit right in with the modern and urban surroundings. Make sure to don your coolest and most current couture before fezzing it up. 

The People: The crowd included a diverse mix of ages and styles. The comfortable co-mingling of so many of aspects of Phoenix city life was one of the highlights of the evening. 

What we loved: Shortly after 10 p.m. the rather tiny bar area started filling up with a warm and welcoming group of regulars. The well-designed decor in combination with the inviting atmosphere gave Fez the feeling of a much larger space. 

What we didn't love: Fez fancies itself a live music space, yet there is really no space for live music at the bar. This is definitely more of a place to grab a snack and a couple of drinks with some friends rather than a place for musical appreciation. 

Are we going back? Yes, but maybe next time we'll check out Thirsty Thursday.
