    910 Live

    910 N. McClintock Drive Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-966-0707

    http://www.910liveaz.com/ Way "back in the day" (specifically, from 1991 until 2002) this eclectic Tempe club functioned as a home base for the Valley's music scene. Back then it was called Boston's. Fast-forward to today and you'll discover that the place is still rocking, although the ramshackle decor has been ditched in favor of tasteful nudes and choreographed lighting. It's once again an epicenter of live music, however. Much like in its heyday, the joint is still a haven for live music. While the front portion functions as exotic club Elite Cabaret, the open-air portion in the back boasts a large outdoor stage that regularly hosts al fresco performances from band and musicians of the local and nationally touring variety and is ringed by posh cabanas for VIP types to catch the shows.

  • Baer

    Baer's Den

    925 E. Apache Blvd. Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-517-9544

    http://www.baersden.com While it might be tough trying to find some elbow room at this tiny Tempe tavern -- which is usually packed to the rafters with hard-drinking scenesters -- one thing you won't have any trouble locating is the sports memorabilia that takes up practically every available inch of wall space. The place is a favorite hangout for fans of Boston sports teams, various umpires who visit the Valley during spring training, and local college kids cashing in on dirt-cheap drink specials. Just try to keep from knocking their drinks over as you navigate your way to the restroom. Read more about Baer's Den >>

  • Baseline Pub

    Baseline Pub

    1825 E. Baseline Road Tempe, AZ 85283
    480-838-5883

    https://www.facebook.com/pages/Baseline-Pub/ If it happens to be your first-ever time ever inside the Baseline Pub and co-owner Tom Panopoulos is about, don't be surprised if a free shot somehow winds up in front of you. It's earned the Tempe neighborhood joint a loyal patronage who dig its lovably well-worn atmosphere, the seemingly never-ending buckets of free peanuts, hanging out in the den-like game room (complete with ping-pong table) in the back, or the fact they can stash their purses or pool cues in a curtain-covered closet next to the bar without worry. Plus, those who visit often enough tend to be hip to when the next time the free "I'm a Pubber" T-shirts will be given out. Read more about Baseline Pub >>

  • Baseline Sports Bar

    Baseline Sports Bar

    201 E. Baseline Road Tempe, AZ 85283
    480-730-9800

    http://www.baselinesportsbar.com Owner AJ Hunter is something of a wild child with a taste for Harleys, a spicy personality, and a sexy flair. Ditto for her south Tempe establishment in the Mill Towne Center, where hawg heads and their steel steeds are always welcome to motor on in, especially during the well attended bike night on Wednesdays or the Sons of Anarchy dinners every Tuesday evening. Baseline Sports Bar also sells booty shorts and t-shirts emblazoned with its slogan “Represent Motherfucker” to its ribald and rabidly loyal army of patrons, whose crassness and depravity humorously clashes with the straight-laced aura of tony stained-wood, brass fixtures, and red brick. The bikers and bawdiness help add a bit of badass to an already eclectic mix of jockish preps hovering over platters of the bar’s notoriously fiery buffalo wings, hipster couples expertly flinging pucks on the shuffleboard game, or silver-haired retires from the surrounding neighborhood huddled in booths. We kinda doubt they’ll be picking up a t-shirt on their way out. Read more about Baseline Sports Bar >>

  • The Big Bang

    The Big Bang

    501 S. Mill Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-557-5595

    http://www.thebigbangbar.com The Big Bang touts itself as "an underground dueling piano bar." Patrons provide as much entertainment as the pianists, getting onstage to dance and sing along. A high level of audience participation, combined with the pianists' campy humor, creates the aura of a cheesy lounge high on nitrous oxide, seven nights a week. Read more about The Big Bang >>

  • Bogey

    Bogey's Grill

    6463 S. Rural Road Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-897-2127

    http://www.bogeysgrillaz.com The name Bogey's says it all - and not because there are any Casablanca-themed decorations at this Tempe sports grill and hangout. The golf theme is explored all over the walls at this place, where kickballers and dodgeballers also congregate in herds. On NFL Sundays, the bar is a home away from home for displaced Vikings, Bears, and Bills fans, as well as a sizable contingent of Arizona Cardinals followers. The signature drink is Three Olives vodka, which runs only $3.50 all day long. Weekly events include Texas Hold'em on Thursday evenings and live music on Friday nights. You can also shoot a game of pool, hone your aim on Big Buck Hunter or play a round of cornhole. Read more about Bogey's Grill >>

  • Boston

    Boston's Bar & Grille

    1730 E. Elliot Road Tempe, AZ 85284
    480-831-0822

    http://www.bostons.com/ As its name portends, this Tempe joint is all about Beantown. Not only can you catch the latest Pats game with all sorts of Massachusetts expats, the bar also provides the chance to wolf down a Green Monster chili dog while sipping a few pints of Sam Adams, and perusing the latest edition of the Boston Herald. And if you've forgotten about the enormity of the Red Sox's World Series win back in 2004, get a gander at all the memorabilia dedicated to both the team and its historic win that's displayed on the walls alongside pennants for other Bostonian sports squads. Off-track betting is also available, as well as an array of draft and bottled beers. Karaoke sessions, open mic nights, and poker tournaments nights are also offered throughout the week.

  • Boulders on Broadway

    Boulders on Broadway

    530 W. Broadway Road Tempe, AZ 85282
    480-921-9431

    http://www.bouldersonbroadway.com With its ski lodge vibe and walls covered with outdoor equipment (including antique bicycles and climbing gear), Boulders on Broadway's two-story Tempe establishment is the kind of place you can relax after scaling Camelback or taking your 12-speed for a spin. Naturally, it's a big place for the neighborhood cycling crowd (with plenty of places both inside and outside to lock up your two-wheeler) as well as ASU students. There are more than 25 brews on tap -- as well as 75 more available in bottled form -- and an ample menu of scrumptious Chicago-style pizzas, calzones, and other comfort food selections in case you'd like to carb load before your next hike. Daily food and drink specials are also available. Read more about Boulders on Broadway >>

    C.A.S.A. Sunbá

    15 E. 6th St. Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-557-8226

    http://www.casa-sunba.com/ C.A.S.A. SunBá takes the idea of a stylish Tempe drinkery and turns it inside out, literally. There aren’t any pool tables, dart boards, or even walls to speak of at this completely outdoor establishment that’s perched on the Sixth Street sidewalk and comprised of an open air bar, two levels of patio seating, and little else. Flocks of umbrellas, scores of overhead fans, a heavy-duty misting system, and ice-cold cocktails in plastic mini-buckets keep everyone chill in warmer climes with space heaters and hot toddies for the colder months. The wealth of better-than-average brews and primo spirits are always good year-round, as are any of the O.G. Burritos that meals unto themselves with such entrée-like names and fillings as “Thanksgiving Dinner,” “Chinese Take Out,” and “The Steak House.” There’s room enough for a small stage and set of turntables, which means occasional live entertainment to go along with the non-stop parade of freaks and geeks along nearby Mill Avenue.

  • Casey Moore

    Casey Moore's Oyster House

    850 S. Ash Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-968-9935

    http://www.caseymoores.com Where everyone knows your name, and the grub's never lame. Seafood's a safe bet here, with the fish and chips and oysters Rockefeller being our faves. Dine upstairs in quaint tranquility and coziness, downstairs in a more pubbish setting, or outside on Casey Moore's vast, wrap-around patio. ASU students, their parents, and longtime Tempeans all meet up here to bend their elbows, quaff pints and fill their bellies. A fun spot, and a veritable Tempe institution, chances are if you're in the area on a weekend night, you'll end up at Casey's. Read more about Casey Moore's Oyster House >>

  • The Cornish Pasty Co.

    The Cornish Pasty Co.

    960 W. University Drive Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-894-6261

    http://www.cornishpastyco.com Hip, railroad-car-size establishment specializing in Cornwall's answer to the potpie, the pasty (pronounced pass-tee). Traditionally, these jumbo turnovers are filled with steak, onion, rutabaga and potato, and are referred to as oggies. The place also has porkies, which are (you guessed it) stuffed with pork, sage, onion, potato and apple; and lamb and mint varieties. But owner Dean Thomas has pulled a Ben & Jerry's on the concept, adding everything from a pesto chicken to chicken tikka masala and a Philly cheese-steak version. Try 'em all, and you're sure to end up an oggie addict. Read more about The Cornish Pasty Co. >>

  • Devil

    Devil's Advocate

    955 E. University Drive Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-921-2585

    http://www.devilstempe.com/ This University Drive tavern has become one of the a favored drinking destinations of both the ASU set and refugees from the Scottsdale club scene. It's a bit more posh looking than its former identity as O'Malley's, with a dark wood design, plasma TVs, and plenty of leather seating. Tuesdays offer an acoustic open mic night, live music performances take place on Fridays, and different drink specials are available daily. Beats hanging out in your dorm room, that's for sure.

  • Doc & Eddy

    Doc & Eddy's Sports Bar

    909 E. Minton Drive Tempe, AZ 85282
    480-831-0635

    http://www.docandeddystempe.com/ At the risk of sounding grandiose, Doc & Eddy's is one of the quintessential neighborhood sports bars in the entire Valley, possessing all the amenities that make a jock joint great. There aren't many seats in the house without excellent views of multiple TVs, allowing throngs of rabid fans who gather here (including both ASU supporters and members of the Steeler Nation) to witness the exploits of their favorite teams while simultaneously keeping tabs on several other games of interest. Food and drink specials are also plentiful, like the $2 domestic bottles and $5.25 pitchers available during the daily happy hour, which are guaranteed to keep you satisfied even if the bums are losing. But if you're not into all the athletic action, D&E's offers plenty of other diversions, ranging from a dozen regulation-size pool tables and air hockey to video games and a weekly team trivia night to challenge your pop culture intellect. Whether you're a die-hard fan or just along for the ride, this south Tempe sports haven definitely has all the bases covered. Read more about Doc & Eddy's Sports Bar >>

  • Dos Gringos

    Dos Gringos

    8000 S. Priest Road Tempe, AZ 85284
    480-753-4577

    http://www.dosgringosaz.com After Dos Gringos Trailer Park closed in 2009, college kids and Tempe day drinkers alike were left without one of their favorite spots to grab a bucket of Coronas and a giant burrito first thing in the morning. Thankfully, the drinking gods have blessed them with a brand new drinking hole that's just as much fun as its predecessor. Closer to Ahwatukee than ASU, the newer Tempe eating and drinking spot retains everything we love about Dos Gringos but with more of a mixed clientele (read: more than just ASU students). Grab a $2 Corona or a $3 Gringorita while enjoying the beautiful Arizona weather (well, five months out of the year at any rate). Indoor and outdoor seating is available, as are several food and drink specials during the weekday happy hour, every Monday through Friday. Weekends tend to get a little crazy, so leave the kids (or parents) at home. Read more about Dos Gringos >>

    El Hefe Super Macho Taqueria

    640 S. Mill Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-257-2797

    http://elhefetempe.com/ The Tempe spinoff of this “super macho taqueria” features everything that its sister location in Scottsdale is famous for – from the array of eight signature tacos, Sonoran-inspired “Hefe Hot Dogs,” and potent bebidas – only with double the floorspace. That means there’s twice as much room for the lunch and dinner crowds, as well as everyone who comes out at night for the frenetic and often packed fiestas that feature waitresses dancing on the bars, sombreros and confetti poppers everywhere, wall-to-wall electro music, and a nonstop streaming videos on HDTVs, and dudes dressed in Zebra costumes. It’s muy loco, to say the least. Read more about El Hefe Super Macho Taqueria >>

  • Elite Cabaret Gentleman

    Elite Cabaret Gentleman's Club at 910 Live

    910 N. McClintock Drive Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-966-0707

    You'd be hard-pressed to find a single strip club in the Valley that doesn't feature rock 'n' roll blaring as exotic dancers bump and grind away. Elite Cabaret at 910 Live is no exception, as its music mix is heavy on classic jams from the likes of Gary Glitter, Cheap Trick, and The Doors. Thing is, this Tempe strip club will do you one better: There's an open-air concert space in the back hosting live rock gigs. Earlier this year, the proprietors of 910 Live transformed the interior of the nightclub and venue, which once served as infamous rock bar Boston's, into a ritzy topless club drenched in pink and purple hues and boasting multiple stages and swank furnishings. The live music moved outdoors, where cabanas and seating ring a 40-square-foot stage. Since the changeover, it's featured appearances from rock icons like George Lynch of Dokken, who performed in April, and former Sex Pistol Glen Matlock and Blondie drummer Clem Burke's The International Swingers in May. Best of all, concert admission gets you into the cabaret, where you can have your own personal after-party. Read more about Elite Cabaret Gentleman's Club at 910 Live >>

  • Final Round

    Final Round

    5030 S. Mill Ave. Tempe, AZ 85282-6833
    480-456-3663

    http://finalroundaz.com/ In case the maroon and gold color scheme, Sparky memorabilia, and “Sun Devil Country” sign didn’t already clue you in, bub, Final Round is firmly in the camp of Arizona State University. It makes sense, considering the den-like Tempe hangout is located practically in ASU’s backyard, which translates to many members of the Sun Devil faithful visiting on game day. They’re not the only ones, as Final Round has a significant following among fans of other teams, as well as the neighborhood crowd, local rec league jocks, service industry workers, karaoke fanatics, card players eager to compete in the thrice-weekly free poker games, and anyone else looking to drink, dine, or shoot pool on the cheap in a relaxed setting. Pay attention when the bartenders ask, “Are you hungry?” since they’re about to pimp one of the fantastic daily comfort food specials, including pulled pork, grilled pastrami on rye, or huge plates of chicken fried steak and eggs on Sunday mornings.

  • Firehouse Tempe

    Firehouse Tempe

    4 E. University Drive Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-275-2116

    http://ilovefirehouse.com/ By day, the Firehouse on Mill Avenue is a drinking den and gastropub-meets-sports bar, with two-dozen HD screens, tiered bleacher seats for prime viewing experiences, gametime specials, an enviable list of top-shelf beers, and colorful dorm room décor. Once the game’s over, the party really starts during four-alarm fetes featuring DJs going hard inside a repurposed 1940s ladder truck, shot girls, bottle service, VIP booths above the bar, and the occasional unexpected thrill, like when Snoop Dogg came by to spin hip-hop and reggae for a packed house. And if Firehouse is cool enough for the Doggfather, it’s cool enough for us, fo’ shizzle. Read more about Firehouse Tempe >>

  • Four Peaks Brewing Company

    Four Peaks Brewing Company

    1340 E. 8th St. Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-303-9967

    http://www.fourpeaks.com The building that houses Four Peaks Brewery was once home to a dairy. That was a long time ago, though. This Tempe institution has been serving food and handcrafted suds in their unique 1892 Mission-style warehouse since 1996. Four Peaks' popularity has grown over the years, which is why you'll likely be halted at the door by business-like hostesses on any weekend night. Even with the expansion of the indoor dining room, it's still packed. Four Peaks is a well-regarded brewer with an extensive bottling operation, and you can try all eight of their year-round beers on tap at all times, along with whatever seasonal brew hasn't yet been chugged down by growler-wielding die-hards. The place is always bustling during happy hour, but half-off beers make it worth the wait. Bar food aplenty and scads of flat-screens let you watch the game inside, and the shady patio is perfect for outside day-drinking before the masses show up.

    http://www.fourpeaks.com/ At the Four Peaks Tasting Room, local beer enthusiasts can sip their favorite suds at the heart of the brewing facility, avoiding both the crowds at Four Peaks' original 8th Street Location and the long car ride that (depending on where you live) goes with its North Hayden Grill and Tap. Four Peaks' Wilson Street Tasting Room is tucked away in a maze of of commercial warehouses, making it both intimate and exclusive to insiders with beer know-how.

  • Gordon Biersch Brewery & Restaurant

    Gordon Biersch Brewery & Restaurant

    420 S. Mill Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-736-0033

    http://www.gordonbiersch.com Businesses tend to come and go in Downtown Tempe, but brewpub Gordon Biersch, which overlooks the corner of Mill Avenue and Fifth Street, has been a loyal mainstay for more than a decade. It's no surprise, given the bar's lofty view (which is particularly nice at sunset) and the establishment's longstanding dedication to handcrafted beer. Dressed in casual khakis, business folks sample such Biersch standards as Golden Export, Hefeweizen, Czech Pilsner, Märzen brew, and rotating seasonal beers (brewed in-house), with the gleaming stills visible from the dark oak bar. The menu is just as sophisticated as the lagers. Munch on appetizers like crab cakes with Cajun rémoulade and pot stickers, then move on to entrees like the sesame-seared ahi tuna, Cajun pasta and jambalaya.

    501 South Mill Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-306-8633

    http://www.gringostarstreetbar.com Given that two major pastimes for college kids are drinking and gaming, putting a hybrid bar and arcade like Gringo-Star Street Bar within fragging distance of Arizona State University is an idea worthy of the Mother Brain herself. The Mill Avenue spot levels up the hipness factor even further by mixing vintage video games (10 arcade classics like Galaga, and Street Fighter II, plus two Nintendo 64 consoles and skeeball machines) with vibrant street art murals from Lalo Cota, JB Snyder, and Sierra Joy, as well as such street eats as Sonoran hot dogs, green chili pork tacos, and Korean spiced beef. Games are free to play every Mondays and the bar offers several drink specials, while the big DJ nights on Friday and Saturday bring out both bottle-poppers and quarter-droppers.
