Best Bartender Phoenix 2010 - Philthy Phil - CLOSED
Don't let his name fool you. Philthy Phil may have a sleazy moniker, but the owner and bartender of this neighborhood good-times dive bar is straight-up good people. An orphan from Detroit, Phil grew up the hard way. And while there's a scrappiness about him (he 86s anyone making trouble, especially in defense of the ladies who are drinking at his bar), his gracious way of making his lively mix of patrons feel welcome is infectious, carrying over to his friendly staff. With a hard pour, a soft spot for the downtrodden, and a reputation for joining in on the fun, Philthy Phil is your new best friend behind the bar.
