Like most good dive barflies, we're not exactly stoked to share our favorite hideout with the masses. But what the heck — we love this place! It's dark, it's grimy (though the ladies room is so clean, it won a Best Of), and it has an atrium. It's the Swizzle Inn. Lurking behind the Starbucks on the southeast corner of 16th Street and Bethany Home Road sits a little piece of dive bar heaven, where the drinks are always strong and the Christmas light are on 365 days a year. Whether you're in flip-flops, heels, or even your pajamas, everyone's welcome at the Swizzle for cheap drinks and a game of pool. And don't worry if you're short in the, um, friends department — there are plenty of colorful locals to keep you entertained.

LOVE the Swizzle Inn! Great people, great drinks, great time!


Totally agree, best neighborhood/dive bar in central Phoenix. It's especially nice to have exceptionally clean bathrooms (with scented candles!) so your prim and proper friends won't complain too much. Go have a "mystery shot" for $2...its a bottle in a brown bag, and you won't know what it is until it hits your throat.

Congrats, Beth and Bob!
