  • 20 Highland Tavern

    20 Highland Tavern

    4701 N. 20th Street Phoenix, AZ 85016
    602-761-4750 When you're thinking about going out to watch the game, you probably aren't thinking about going to Whole Foods. However, if you're a craft beer lover, you might want to change your tune. Brews from Mikkeller, Dragoon, Mother Road, Dogfish Head, and more make the ever changing tap list, so you'll likely love exploring the menu. However, if you can't take the shame of Ubering to a grocery store, you can opt for a four beer flight to test out some different styles all at once without over-imbibing. Plus, if you have vegetarian or vegan friends, you can all find something to eat on the full menu, which features pizza, sushi, and sandwiches. Read more about 20 Highland Tavern >>

  • Arcadia Tavern

    Arcadia Tavern

    4801 E. Indian School Road Phoenix, AZ 85018
    602-840-3950 We go here for good company, sure, but it's the bruschetta that we long for. The spinach and artichoke brucshetta is our favorite, and we like to order it during the week when we can get a whole board of the stuff along with a bottle of wine for only $20. Yummy sides include sweet potato tater tots, which have to be tasted to be believed. Good bar food includes Asian chicken salad, the piled-high monster nachos, and the Cobb 7, a salad so full of bacon and avocado, you'll pass out from joy. Read more about Arcadia Tavern >>

  • Bar 1

    Bar 1

    3702 N. 16th St. Phoenix, AZ 85016
    602-266-9001 Far from the leather bars, rainbow-flagged saunas, and diva-filled discotheques elsewhere, Bar 1 is casual gay nightlife that still knows how to have fun. Its easygoing, candlelit, and ridiculously immaculate atmosphere allows patrons to talk in their (gasp!) indoor voices whether relaxing by the fireplace, playing pinball, or unwinding on the outdoor patio. Fun-loving freaks can check their pants with one of the friendly barkeeps on Wednesday night for $1-off drinks and $6 pitchers of Long Island iced tea, or lose their shirts on Sunday for $1.25 drafts. Specials for the clad also are available. Read more about Bar 1 >>

  • Bar Crudo

    Bar Crudo

    3603 N. Indian School Rd Phoenix, AZ 85018
    602-358-8666 If you're looking for a one-of-a-kind, ever-changing cocktail menu, go to Bar Crudo. If you're looking for a classic cocktail served up the old fashioned way, go to Bar Crudo. Pretty much if you want a cocktail of any kind, for any reason, under any budget, Bar Crudo is the place to be in town. Mixologist Micah Olson is legendary in the Phoenix bar scene for a reason-- he does everything the right way. Plus, those crispy pig ears served at the bar are to die for.

  • Chopper John

    Chopper John's

    2547 E. Indian School Road Phoenix, AZ 85016
    602-955-0881 This place sure has a long legacy behind it: After opening in 1952 as the Red Diamond, this former residence has been known as Cholla Bay, Louie's, VJ's, and McGuires throughout the years. Things settled down when it became the blues joint Warsaw Wally's for a couple of decades, but switched into the 26th Street Blues Bar, and finally Chopper John's. Besides offering live music on Friday and Saturday nights, this nightspot has the usual pool tables, dart machines, and touch-screen video games. Just don't bust your head open on one of the low-hanging rafters. Read more about Chopper John's >>

  • Cj

    Cj's Talley's

    6022 N. 16 St. Phoenix, AZ 85016
    602-248-7756 The folks at Cj's Talley's Pub tend to be a close-knit bunch. The banter between the patrons and the barkeeps is priceless, with everyone cracking jokes about the latest happenings in the social circle, ordering up rounds of Bud Light and Fat Tire, and sharing belly laughs. The hostess is happy to switch channels between sporting matches, and she doesn"t even need to ask most of the crew what they want to drink. The bar comes stocked with normal bar accouterments, like a pool table and bartop games, but the real allure is the friendly vibe; spend a few minutes in Talley's and you'll be amazed how quickly the bartender picks up your name.

  • Dick

    Dick's Hideaway

    6008 N. 16th St. Phoenix, AZ 85016
    602-241-1881 With no indication of its existence save two bougainvillea bushes guarding the door, Dick's Hideaway is a secluded reserve for those in the know. This bar and restaurant was once the spillover lounge for Richardson's, the popular restaurant that went up in smoke in July 2009, but now it's the sole attraction for people seeking Richardson's New Mexican fare. The main restaurant's kitchen was spared (lucky for us) and Dick's continues to serve food and daily drink specials to suits looking for a respite from the rat race. Despite its compact size -- a bar, three tables, and an adjoining party/dining room -- the warm wood, candles, and low light mean patrons will get familiar with each other fast as they crane their heads to see the blackboard specials or watch the tasty grub being cooked on the grill. Folks come from miles around for a giant lunchtime portion of Chile Adovada. (Served with one of the specialty tequilas, this makes a perfect early dinner too) For Breakfast, check out some of the southwest's best huevos rancheros or tuck into the Eggs Benedict, spiced up with hot jalapenos.

  • Dilly Dally Lounge

    Dilly Dally Lounge

    3639 E. Indian School Phoenix, AZ 85018

    There's a lot to be said for taking it slow. The Dilly Dally is a laidback dive that's perfect for those looking to unwind and imbibe. A simple neon sign welcomes locals and newcomers through a dark foyer into a cozy, carpeted room where the juke's never too loud, the games are never too numerous, and the book exchange is never without a James Patterson novel. Hot nuts can be had for 50 cents a bag and the cutout collage of nudie pics is always entertaining. Dirt-cheap drinks explain the lack of flashy promotions, a homemade calendar showcasing the pub's patrons awaits the next regular's birthday, and the ambassadors of the bar's "Fish Tank Specials" swim lazily in a unkempt aquarium while the friendlier, faster-moving barkeeps serve up the next round of relaxation.

  • Half Moon Sports Grill

    Half Moon Sports Grill

    2121 E. Highland Ave. Phoenix, AZ 85016
    602-977-2700 At first blush, Half Moon might seem to be strictly a "guys night out" kind of bar. After all, pictures of half-exposed hineys are scattered throughout the establishment, the wait staff consists almost entirely of young and attractive women in form-fitting tank tops, and there's nothing but sports on all the TVs. If you look past the obvious nods to man-cave culture, however, you'll find that this is also one of the more appealing sports bars for the fairer sex as well. Perhaps it's due to its proximity to the Biltmore (or even a menu that balances pub grub with such selections as the pear gorgonzola salad), but the establishment just feels classier than your run-of-the-mill sports bar. Patrons run the gamut from college kids and urban professionals to families with children and a slew of Alabama expats (the bar hosts a significant Crimson Tide contingent every Saturday during football season). With excellent happy hour specials and private party rooms, Half Moon is a great destination for groups large and small. Read more about Half Moon Sports Grill >>

  • Hazelwood

    Hazelwood's First Place Sports Grill

    3626 E. Indian School Road Phoenix, AZ 85018
    602-957-2462 When sports nuts shuffle off the mortal coil and head for the great ballpark in the sky, we're certain that their afterlife looks a great deal like Hazelwood's. This Arcadia establishment is the very definition of what a sports bar should be. HDTVs cover every conceivable surface, including flat-screens at each of its 24 booths, all of which air a wide variety of sporting contests. The owners wear their Phoenix Suns fandom on their sleeves, outfitting the place with various and sundry team memorabilia. A gleaming row of 16 beer taps provides brews both foreign and domestic. And there's shuffleboard and pool in the back, and weekly poker, karaoke, and trivia nights, as well. Read more about Hazelwood's First Place Sports Grill >>

  • Ice House Tavern

    Ice House Tavern

    3855 E. Thomas Road Phoenix, AZ 85018
    602-244-1179 Described by co-owner Daryl Chester as the "only bar in Arizona connected to an ice rink," this vintage East Phoenix dive (which dates back to the early '60s) boasts a couple of other distinctions as well: Not only is it the only still-standing portion of the bygone Tower Plaza Mall, it's become a regular stop for the hipster crowd, who come for weekend shows by Valley bands or to rub elbows with weekend hockey league players. Entertainment isn't limited to just local musicians strutting their stuff, as you can watch would-be skaters at the adjacent Arcadia Ice Arena through a large window or partake in the steel tip dart tournament every Friday.

  • J.T.

    J.T.'s Bar & Grill

    4829 E. Indian School Road Phoenix, AZ 85018
    602-952-7046 Wedged between a hair salon and a vintage auto repair shop, this neighborhood hideaway on the edge of Arcadia has been serving up grub and suds for more than a decade now. Known especially for its hearty wings, daily dinner specials like two-for-one burgers, and other offerings within the realm of American pub-style eats, the grill at J.T.’s (shorthand for owner John Taylor) is located behind the bar, providing much-needed space in the tiny, dimly lit room filled entirely from floor to ceiling with treasures symbolizing the owner’s three loves: sports, Marilyn Monroe, and the Rolling Stones. This divey drinking den’s typically home to a lively bunch and a raucous, convivial vibe on most nights, with Arcadians providing patronage to longtime barkeeps, gulping down any of the nine beers on tap with a new-found friend, or inquiring about J.T., the “grumpy old man” whose reputation’s as fiery as his famous wings.

  • Kat


    2309 E. Indian School Road Phoenix, AZ 85016

    Once known as the notorious Liguori Lounge - a spillover joint for the defunct rock 'n' roll landmark The Mason Jar - this CenPho dive has maintained its neighborhood hidey-hole status by welcoming a diverse, and sometimes tough, crowd. Down the narrow hallway running the length of the bar (which is peppered with license plates, airbrushed pics of hotties, and feline photography) Kat's opens up into a rec room of sorts with pool, free Texas Hold'em tournaments, and a claw game filled with porn DVDs. The longtime locals are happy to chat it up while downing daily drink specials or happy hour brews, and they won't hesitate to dance whenever a Bette Midler song booms from the jukebox. Read more about Kat's >>

  • Kitty

    Kitty's Cocktails

    2836 N. 36th St. Phoenix, AZ 85008

    The brick walls of Kitty's are as solid as its patrons: Good friendly folk who look up to say hello, introduce you to their boozing buddies, razz the bartenders, yell out the answers to questions on the game shows that appear on the bar's TVs, and scold you if you put a napkin over your beer before you go out for a smoke break ("No one's gonna take it"). Once Mugsy's and then Gus Murphy's, this dive has stayed true to its neighborhood niche for the past 20 years, serving up $2.25 happy hour pints and $1.25 PBRs from noon 'til close on Tuesdays and Thursdays. And with plenty of pool, Texas Hold'em, and Friday-night dancing in Kitty's open, walk-and-talk interior, socializing isn't just encouraged, it's damn near mandatory.

  • The Little Woody

    The Little Woody

    4228 E. Indian School Road Phoenix, AZ 85018
    602-955-0339 The Little Woody is as quaint as each of the tiny, ornamental owls perched along the ceiling, and twice as charming. Many a proud tree gave its life to create the Arcadia bar’s aesthetically eclectic and wood-heavy upscale design that’s the result of cross-pollinating a speakeasy and ski lodge, with a bit of the location’s former identity as dive bar The Great Escape thrown in for good measure. A woodpile-like design of stacked juniper logs covers most of walls in the main room, a slab or arboreal matter serves as a table, and a funky scarlet glow illuminates the bar top and those huddled nearby. While a hullabaloo of social rites takes, it isn’t as the frenetic as the activity in the neighboring game room, where a vintage shuffleboard game, two skee-ball machines, and foosball. Each is constantly in use, either by meet-cute couples or packs of friends staging a showdown. There's little chance of ever being bored at The Little Woody. Read more about The Little Woody >>

  • Merc Bar

    Merc Bar

    2525 E. Camelback Road Phoenix, AZ 85016
    602-508-9449 To find the clandestine Merc Bar, hunt around the center of the Esplanade while trying to spy the tiny golden plaque beside its front door. Once that's done, head inside to soak up its high style setting -- brass tables, designer sofas, dark wood accents -- and virtual bat-cave lighting. Clientele is of the well-heeled sort, with plenty of businessmen and pretty young things sipping French martinis while nibbling on gourmet appetizers. Get there early, the place fills up quickly.

  • Mi Ranchito Dancing Bar

    Mi Ranchito Dancing Bar

    2401 N. 32nd St. Phoenix, AZ 85008

    Looking to hoof it Latino-style? Enter the Mi Ranchito Dancing Bar. This Central Phoenix boogie-down lounge boasts a cheery blue exterior with brightly lit red signs welcoming hombres y mujeres jóvenes into a sinfully dark open room, complete with stage, sound system, and sizable dance floor (with pole) surrounded by tables and chairs, aluminum sheeting on the walls, and wagon wheels and beer signs on décor duty. Bailarines can move their feet to nightly DJ action, live bands on Fridays and Saturdays, and a jukebox full of popular Mexican music, while cantantes can belt it out during karaoke on Thursday and Sunday evenings. For those not into the shimmy or the shake, there's also a few TVs and pool tables for entertainment. Read more about Mi Ranchito Dancing Bar >>
