A longtime favorite of the Phoenix gay scene, Apollo's is the kind of bar where you can have a few beers and hang with a diverse selection of drinkers.
Big Fish Pub

Big Fish Pub

The largish stage located off to the side of this landmark bar and music venue has been graced by plenty of big bands over the years.


Walk into Flicka's and you just might mistake the place for some beachside cantina in Cabo San Lucas instead of a roadside cantina in south Scottsdale.

  • Fat Tuesday

    Fat Tuesday

    680 S. Mill Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-967-3917 This New Orleans-themed drinkery located along Mill Avenue brings in college students by the dozens on Friday and Saturday nights. Some visit for the dope DJ lineup or to bump their humps on the dance floor, while most come for a taste of the bar's infamous wall of frozen daiquiris. From the "Pirates Pleasure" (Captain Morgan's and fruit punch) to old favorites like Sex on the Beach, these concoctions are distributed by model-quality bartenders from a row of silver, slushie-like machines lining the back of the bar.

  • Firehouse Tempe

    4 E. University Drive Tempe, AZ 85281

  • Four Peaks Brewing Company

    Four Peaks Brewing Company

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

  • The Four Peaks Taproom on Wilson

    2401 S. Wilson St. Tempe, AZ 85282

  • Gold Bar Espresso

    Gold Bar Espresso

    3141 S. McClintock Drive Tempe, AZ 85282
    480-839-3082 If you leave Gold Bar Espresso thirsty, then you've got some explaining to do. The family-owned and operated coffee shop has been quenching parched mouths in Tempe since the mid-nineties. Located in the Basha's shopping center on the northeast corner of Southern and McClintock, they offer a wide selection of beverages: the obvious coffee and espresso drinks, as well as Italian sodas, teas, smoothies and hot cocoas. Pop in on a weekend night and enjoy live jazz or grab a few friends for one of their popular game nights. If it's just coffee and Wi-Fi that you require, they've got you covered on that front, as well. Read more about this Phoenix bar or club >>

  • Gordon Biersch

    Gordon Biersch

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

  • Gringo Star Street Bar

    501 South Mill Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281

  • Half Moon Sports Grill

    Half Moon Sports Grill

    325 W. Elliot Road Tempe, AZ 85284-1373

  • Hookah Mania

    Hookah Mania

    1290 N. Scottsdale Rd Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-829-4959 Some people, like superstar chef Anthony Bourdain, for instance, will journey to the ends of the earth for unforgettable Middle Eastern cuisine and culture. All you have to do, on the other hand, is head to the edge of Tempe and the plaza housing Hookah Mania. As its name implies -- and the ample supply of gleaming water pipes in stock illustrate -- the raison d'être of the establishment is the utter joy of firing up shisha. But in addition to perusing an entire side room with three-dozen imported flavored tobaccos, visitors can peruse four pages of Mediterranean and Mid-East standards, albeit done magnificently (try the buttery makanek Lebanese sausages). Melt into an over stuffed chair or cop a squat in a padded floor booth to either sup or smoke up the place with sweet fragrances. If it’s a weekend night, both belly dancing or DJs will entertain while plates of gigunda baklava are brought out, thus helping you feel even more like some decadent shriek.

  • Hoookah Mania

    Hoookah Mania

    1290 N. Scottsdale Road Tempe, AZ 85281

  • Hooters


    501 S. Mill Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-967-2222 Their corporate slogan, “delightfully tacky yet unrefined,” proudly tells you all you need to know about this chain of 430 casual, beach-themed restaurants founded in Clearwater, Florida in 1983. The chain is as proud of its scantily-clad waitresses, the iconic Hooters Girls, as they are their several varieties of chicken wings, seafood and sandwiches. Its sports bar ambience (check out the banks of flat screen TVs, blasting big games on every wall) and cold tap beer are the perfect accompaniment to burgers with names like Nacho Ordinary and More Than a Mouthful. Before pinching the Hooters Girl who’s waiting on them, patrons would do well to wipe their greasy fingers on the roll of paper towels posted at every table.

  • Hubbly Bubbly

    Hubbly Bubbly

    1400 S. McClintock Drive Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-968-2625 Music videos from an array of international artists play on seven different HDTVs as dozens of college kids and 20-somethings make like the caterpillar in Alice in Wonderland, perching on comfy couches and smoking up a storm. The pungent smell of aromatic shishas and flavored tobaccos hangs in the air as patrons puff on multi-colored water pipes and enjoy a variety of alcoholic beverages. Meanwhile, belly dancers gyrate their sensual hips during weekend shows and DJs spin ambient techno and underground hip-hop every Sunday night. Read more about this Phoenix bar or club >>

  • La Bocca Urban Pizzeria and Wine Bar

    La Bocca Urban Pizzeria and Wine Bar

    699 S. Mill Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-967-5244 It's rather fitting that the name of this cozy pizzeria and wine bar roughly translates to "the mouth" in Italian, as yours will certainly be put to good use when visiting. Its list of vino favors exotic reds from around the world, allowing one to be whisked away to the vineyards of Argentina for some Punto Final Malbec followed by a glass or two of Peter Lehmann-brand cabernet from Australia. The beer selection is also of an international bent, offering such Belgian imports as Wittekerke Wheat Ale and Lindy Framboise along with bottles of microbrews and local favorites. On the menu you'll find gourmet bruschetta, salads, sandwiches, as well as a number of La Bocca's signature pizzas. Read more about this Phoenix bar or club >>

  • Lucky Break

    Lucky Break

    1807 E. Baseline Road Tempe, AZ 85283
    480-345-1000 There are plenty of reasons to cruise into this swank South Tempe sports bar and billiards haven to grab a drink or catch the game. First off, you won’t find just any old ramshackle pool tables inside the place, as it’s stocked with six gleaming, high-end Spencer Marston tables made from solid hardwood. Sharks and pool pros can shoot plenty of stick using straight-as-an-arrow cues for $6 per hour before 6 p.m. and $7 per hour until closing time (half-price games are also available on Sundays). If 8-ball isn’t your bag, Lucky Break also boasts more than a dozen HDTVs and two jumbo projection screens on its wood-paneled walls broadcasting all the big games. Beer aficionados are sure to dig the fact that there are two dozen draft handles behind the bar dispensing plenty of premium concoctions made from hops and barley. There’s a big emphasis on locally made craft beers, whether were talking Valley favorites (such as Red Rover Irish Red from Sleepy Dog or Kiltlifter and seasonal brews from Four Peaks) or ales and stouts created by brewers throughout Arizona, including Oak Creek in Sedona or Flagstaff’s Lumberyard Brewing Company. If that ain’t enough swank suds to slake your thirst, have the bartenders pour you a pint of Pinstripe Red from Colorado’s Ska Brewing or maybe some Black Butte Porter made by Deschutes Brewery in Oregon. Heck, the staff even offers samples so you can try before buying and various drink deals (like $3 pints on Wednesdays and $3 specialty cocktails on Fridays).

  • Mad Hatter Brew Pub

    502 S. College Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281

  • Marquee Theatre

    Marquee Theatre

    730 N. Mill Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-829-0707 Located just north of Tempe Town Lake near the southwest corner of Mill Avenue and Washington Street, the Marquee Theatre is an institution in the Valley's live music scene. With a capacity of roughly 1,000, it's just big enough that it is required to separate the underagers from the drinkers, which is great for parents attending a show with their kids or groups of young adults who fall on either side of the legal drinking age. At the same time, the theater is intimate enough so that pretty much any location in the house offers a great view of the stage. A large bar in the concourse area is usually pretty busy, but a smaller bar on the concert floor adjacent to the stage ensures that you can have a drink without missing a note. The sound system is top-notch, which is a good thing considering the blockbuster acts that Marquee regularly hosts. Such prominent national acts as A Perfect Circle, Sonic Youth, Social Distortion, and the Black Keys have performed there, as well as a number of up-and-coming Valley bands who get a chance to shine on the big stage during frequent local showcases.

  • Mellow Mushroom

    Mellow Mushroom

    740 S. Mill Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-967-6355 When we want to get mellow, we head to this authentic Italian eatery, where the calzones are practically our religion. Crispy, fresh-baked dough wrapped around yummy ricotta cheese and any number of other fillings (you get to decide what), then topped with tangy marinara-we practically swoon! Also good is the Buffalo Chicken Pizza, a perfect pairing of tasty thin crust, zingy red sauce, and tender shredded chicken. Lunchtime specials include a generous half-sandwich (try the meatball sub-fresh bread; yummy sauce ladled over sliced meatballs-delicious!) and a side salad for $5.50. The friendly waitstaff loves to chat about the specials of the day, and appear to know the impressive beer and wine list by heart. Read more about this Phoenix bar or club >>

  • Mill Cue Club

    Mill Cue Club

    607 S. Mill Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-858-9017 Feel like shooting some stick? There's no shortage of boffo billiards bliss at this combination pool hall/nightspot located in the heart of downtown Tempe's clubbing zone. While the front half of the establishment is more of a swanky saloon and hangout spot (offering daily drink specials, DJs on the weekends, and plenty of hotties perched atop bartstools), the back is all about the art of the cue. A total of 10 different tables fill the room, all of which are typically occupied by a mix of ASU students and scenesters pretending like they're Paul Newman in The Color of Money. Things get crowded pretty quickly most nights, which usually results in players trying to make their shots while dodging drinkers and other wandering social butterflies.

  • Monkey Pants Bar & Grill

    Monkey Pants Bar & Grill

    3223 S. Mill Ave. Tempe, AZ 85282
    480-377-8100 Miss the old frat house? You'll swear you've stepped into old Omega Alpha Etcetera when visiting this peculiar Tempe tavern. Perhaps it's the cardboard portrait of Princess Leia stapled to the wall or the thrift-store décor of mismatched furniture and odd tchotchkes that give Monkey Pants its frat-house vibe. The wait staff shouts "Hello!" as you enter, and will even give you an unusual nickname (like "Goosey Lucy" or "Gorgeous George") even if you don't want one. There's plenty of wacky fun to be had during the week, including goldfish races, crotch-kicking contests, and such theme nights as Sombrero Sundays and Mustache Mondays. This place is off-kilter and off the hook, to say the least. Read more about this Phoenix bar or club >>

  • Moonshine Whiskey Bar

    410 South Mill Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281

  • Mugg Shots Bar

    Mugg Shots Bar

    1212 E. Apache Blvd. Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-442-1642 Picking up in the same building where Lucky Devil left off, Muggshots Bar has hit the ground running. The cops and robbers theme is augmented here and there by pop-culture, sci-fi, and graffiti art, but overall coppers and mobsters dominate the scene, with Dirty Harry peering out from one tabletop, and Al Capone mugging from another. Both characters would be impressed by the bar's beer selection, with offerings from New Belgium and Deschutes Brewery. Check out the bathrooms for a kick- the men's room is decked out and flames and crimson, reading "Hell" on the wall, while the ladies room is far calmer, though still a bit shy of heaven. Bands, DJs and even roller derby events should attract hooligans and the fuzz alike. Read more about this Phoenix bar or club >>

  • My Big Fat Greek Restaurant

    My Big Fat Greek Restaurant

    525 S. Mill Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-966-5883 The only thing better than hanging out and people-watching from this cool diner's Mill Avenue patio is the food they serve us while we're there. These Big Fat people know their hummus, which has a tangy bite and is creamy and not too salty-just like we like it. Chicken and beef skewers are tasty, and served with an ample portion of cut carrots, broccoli and zucchini. We love the pastitsio, served with roasted red potatoes and rice pilaf. For lunch, we always go for the Gyro Pita with crispy, golden fries, or the Grilled Chicken Pita-both of them so full of tasty meat, you'll want to order an extra pita to go with it. Don't miss the Pizza Salad, one of the best-tasting indulgences in town, and the Vegetarian Moussaka, which tops our list of favorite good-for-you foods. Opa!

  • Oceans Seven

    Oceans Seven

    1420 N. Scottsdale Road Tempe, AZ 85281

    Oceans Seven is the latest identity of a Scottsdale spot that has been hosting hip-hop hootenannies and Latin nights for more than a decade. In the late '90s, it was known as CBNC, a major hot spot that earned a serious reputation as a place to spy such celebs as Busta Rhymes, Beyoncé, 50 Cent, and Britney Spears. And though the name has changed, its game remains the same. Its still a prime place for high-volume partying, offering three distinct rooms with separate bars and dance floors, as well as a variety of VIP areas. Oceans Seven boasts a thunderous sound system that pounds out plenty of beats, including mixes of glammy R&B, high-energy street rap, old school jams, and hot reggae riddims. The typical crowd here skews toward urban club types and stylishly refined folks opening their wallets for premium bottles and champagne. In addition to the bubbly, tequila shots and mixed drinks with generous amounts of vodka are some of the preferred fuels for those engaging in nighttime fun.

  • Palo Verde Lounge

    Palo Verde Lounge

    1015 W. Broadway Road Tempe, AZ 85282

    Want to know why locals refer to this landmark dive as the "Dirty Verde?" It could be because of all the band stickers and graffiti covering the walls of the men's room, which also features an old-school condom machine. The chain-link fence surrounding the smoking area is another nice touch. Or maybe it's the funky clientele from around the neighborhood who come to start their drinking during the daytime, mixing with a more bohemian evening crowd. The PBR and other cheap booze flow like water here, and a variety of local punk and noise rock bands perform in one corner on the weekend. That's right: There's no stage here.

  • Philly

    Philly's Sports Bar & Grill

    1826 N. Scottsdale Road Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-946-6666 Picture this: You're parked in front of a ginormous HDTV watching football, when, suddenly, as if from the ether, a hottie appears with a Philly cheesesteak and a frosty pint of Modelo Especial. Finished wiping the drool off your keyboard? You're probably thinking that no such magical Shangri-La actually exists but it does, and it's located on Scottsdale Road, just south of McKellips in Tempe. Philly's has a lot going for it. In addition to its namesake sammies, it offers great happy hour specials ($2.50 domestic drafts and bottles; $3 wells, wines and margaritas), daily drink deals ($2 Miller High Life bottles, $2.50 Modelo drafts) and a mammoth wrap-around patio with an outdoor bar, fire pit, and plenty of seating to accommodate groups of any size. Inside, there's a bar area lined with TVs and even a full-service dining room, making Philly's the sort of sports joint a reasonably-smooth man could feasibly bring a date to.
