  • Philly

    Philly's Sports Bar & Grill

    1826 N. Scottsdale Road Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-946-6666

    http://www.phillyssportsgrill.com 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.

  • Pranksters Gar and Brill

    Pranksters Gar and Brill

    1024 E. Broadway Road Tempe, AZ 85282
    480-967-8875

    http://www.prankstersgarandbrill.com You would expect a certain degree of quirkiness from an establishment that bills itself as a "gar & brill." On that front, this Tempe establishment doesn't disappoint. The daily food and drink specials are listed in non-sequential order above the bar, and a neon Corona sign hangs upside-down near the electronic dartboard. The walls are adorned with framed photos of TV and movie stars, complete with faux autographs and goofy messages from the likes of the Fonz, Adam West, the Munsters, and Mr. Roarke and Tattoo. House rules dictate that anyone who shoots a ball off the bar's pool table must contribute $1 to a pot, which ultimately goes to anyone who sinks the 8-ball on the break. The spunky staff strikes a great balance of sports bar hospitality and dive bar attitude, serving up strong, reasonably priced drinks, but not hesitating to throw some good-natured ribbing your way if your favorite team is laying an egg. The name might be silly, but as old-school Tempe nightspots go, Pranksters is no joke. Read more about this Phoenix bar or club >>

    Q & Brew

    3400 S. Mill Ave. Tempe, AZ 85282
    480-968-3722

    Even if you don't like pool, Tempe's Q & Brew still offers plenty of ways to spend your quarters. Vintage pinball machines greet you at the door, including a primo Williams Deluxe Baseball unit from 1957, while a CD jukebox and bar-top touch-screen video games are also available. Pool remains the establishment's bread and butter, however, and the Q plays host to league nights and offers $3 all-you-can play deals starting at noon on its tables, which include plenty of regulation-size nine-footers. The hall opened way back in 1968 on Mill Avenue, before moving to its current location in the far corner of the same strip mall that houses the Yucca Tap Room. A smoking patio and a plush bar stocked with liquor and draft beer round out this dive bar favorite. Read more about this Phoenix bar or club >>

    http://www.clubredrocks.com There's twice the fun to be had at this double-sided nightlife complex, featuring two different venues under one roof, each with its own bar, live music stage, and attitude. While the smaller Red Owl has more of an intimate feel to its shows, the luxe libations doled out by the waitstaff offer a strong kick and a heavy pour. Next door, Club Red boasts more of a nightclub feel with plenty of cushy seating, a sizeable stage, and a multi-megawatt sound system. Huge weekend shows featuring more than a dozen local bands are the norm at both venue, as well as regular performances by classic rock acts and hip-hop hitmakers.

    Located five minutes from the ASU campus (right by the train tracks), this indoor/outdoor venue and bar always allows for people to spread out during live shows.

  • Rula Bula

    Rula Bula

    401 S. Mill Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-929-9500

    http://www.rulabula.com Situated inside the Victorian-era Andre building, Rula Bula is an authentic-looking pub that's steeped in history. It's housed in an old Mill Avenue saddle shop that dates back to the 1880s, while its walls are lined with vintage Irish relics that were imported from Ireland by owner Steven Goumas. The menu also offers a few historical tidbits, like the origin tales behind such traditional Irish fare as the boxy, as well as dishes named after the renowned Saint Patrick's Battalion that fought in the Mexican-American War. The name of the establishment itself is a reference to an old Gaelic phrase that roughly translates to "uproar and commotion," which is a fitting description for the raucous revelry that takes place inside Rula Bula on a nightly basis. Acoustic artists and Irish musicians offer live music throughout the week, while the staff behind the antique bar serves up pint after pint of imports like Guinness and Smithwick's and various European brews.

    Sail Inn

    26 S. Farmer Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-966-9565

    http://www.thesailinn.com The Sail Inn may be known for its devotion to jam bands and generally hippie-friendly vibe, but recent years have seen the selection of music there expand. Any given night you may find DJs rocking beats, indie rockers doing their thing, or any of the characteristically "love, peace, and chicken grease" type acts.

  • School of Rock

    School of Rock

    411 S. Mill Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-966-3573

    http://www.schoolofrockmillave.com This Mill Ave. nightspot has quickly established itself as the place to shake it in Tempe, combining rock 'n' roll trappings with heavy electronic sounds. The walls are lined with glittering bottles of booze; stars hang from the ceiling and neon-lit stripper poles dot the upstairs lounge. The rock 'n' roll vibe extends to the drum set placed on a riser overlooking the busy street below, and to the wall art: menacing demons clutch electric axes and dance around graffiti-style art. Class is in session at School of Rock, and courses include rocking out, getting down, and partying hard. Read more about this Phoenix bar or club >>

    480-598-8611

    http://www.skipandjans.com It's hard to tell from the street, but Skip & Jan's is huge. It might not look it from the outside, but this Tempe sports bar is large enough to house a fully-stocked kitchen, dozens of TVs, dart boards, arcades, and a station for off-track betting. Not to mention a cavernous pool hall, with tables stretching as far as the eye can see. The staff is courteous and friendly, and regulars are nice, too. The bar features live music, karaoke every Tuesday night and plenty of drink specials to wet gamblers' whistles. This west-Tempe hub has plenty to offer the wandering sportsman.

  • Sleepy Dog Saloon and Brewery

    Sleepy Dog Saloon and Brewery

    1920 E. University Drive Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-967-5476

    http://www.sleepydogbrewing.com "Leg Humper," "Scootcher," and "Wet Snout" are a few of the unique, pooch-centric names you'll find on the tap handles at Tempe's newest brewpub. Tucked away in a quiet strip mall on University Drive, Sleepy Dog offers house-made brews (flip over the menu for a sketch detailing the brewing process) and a bevy of other craft beers available on draft and by the bottle. If you're feeling a little more upscale, the establishment also offers a selection of Arizona wines. The chillaxed atmosphere makes Sleepy Dog an easy spot in which to kick back with friends and play a board game or watch a flick on one of the brewpub's flat-screen TVs. Try your luck on the "Wheel of Deals," and you could even a 25-cent beer or a free bag of chips. Fresh popcorn is available as are more exotic bar snacks, like hummus, should you need something to go along with your pint. Read more about this Phoenix bar or club >>

  • Starters

    Starters

    1400 S. McClintock Drive Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-967-2622

    http://www.startersaz.com The bartenders at this homey, neighborhood spot are an entertaining and welcoming lot. Not only will they dazzle you with Cocktail-style flairtender tricks, they're also known to remember your name and favorite beverage.

The menu is stocked with bar food favorites, while the calendar is filled with a variety of daily specials on Jägermeister and other spirits. A sense of camaraderie permeates the place on a nightly basis, whether it's sports fans enraptured by the action on all the HDTVs or the effusive espirit de corps of the smokers satisfying their nic fits out on the large patio.

  • Tailgate Sports Bar & Grill

    Tailgate Sports Bar & Grill

    930 W. Broadway Road Tempe, AZ 85282
    480-894-2337

    A "no sniveling" sign hangs adjacent to the bar at the Tailgate, which pretty much sums up the attitude of this Tempe spot: no nonsense, no frills, and no bull. Order something domestic as you saddle up to the bar, joining mid-day regulars who tend to drink their lunch (although daily food specials are also available). Free pool is offered on Sundays, all manner of sporting events are broadcast on 10 televisions, and both dartboards and arcade games are handy (in case the exploits of the local teams become too depressing to watch). The Tailgate, which also features live music on its stage, is frequented by the kinds of salt-of-the-earth clientele who wander over from neighboring industrial centers for an after-work pick-me-up. Whining about workplace woes is kept at an absolute minimum, however, as the aforementioned signage dictates. Read more about this Phoenix bar or club >>

  • Taste of Tops

    Taste of Tops

    403 W. University Drive Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-967-5643

    http://www.topsliquors.com Sitting pretty next to its big sis operation Tops Liquors, the pint-sized Taste of Tops is a cushy, lounge-like addition to the famed alcohol emporium located at University Drive and Farmer Avenue. And much like at the original Tops, it's all about the alcohol. The small, inviting bar features a dozen different draft taps of specialty beers, wine by the glass (or by the bottle if purchased at the store, with a small additional corking fee), and a row of refrigerators stocked with row after row of delicious-looking microbrew and craft beers. Local artists switch out their work on the walls each month, which always keeps the look of the place fresh. Comfy couches, low booths and rich wooden chairs create a mellow vibe for hours of laidback drinking and unrushed hanging. When a no-fuss night out is in order, Taste of Tops is the answer.

  • The Tavern on Mill

    The Tavern on Mill

    404 S. Mill Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-967-5886

    http://www.tavernonmill.com Described by its owners as a "high volume" hotspot, the Tavern more than lives up to that slogan. Talented turntablists loudly blast out Top 40 and rock three nights a week. Meanwhile, close to 40 high-def widescreen TVs (more than any other bar on Mill) broadcast music videos, sports, and all those extra satellite channels you can't quite bring yourself to splurge on. The interior bar area and the outdoor patios are both brimming with ASU coeds, meaning there's plenty of eye candy. Oh, and they have daily drink deals, too, like $2 Coronas and Pacificos on Tuesdays and 22-ounce "big-ass" beers for $3 on Wednesdays. Those deals offer value just as voluminous as everything else at the Tavern, one of Mill Avenue's signature establishments. Read more about this Phoenix bar or club >>

  • Tempe Tavern

    Tempe Tavern

    1810 E. Apache Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-794-1706

    http://www.tempetavern.com Tempe Tavern oozes Arizona history. The historic building, built in 1918, used to be known as the White Dairy Barn and preserves the many of its original features, including exposed-concrete columns, door framing, and cobblestone surfaces. The bar used to house Tempe favorite Murphy's Pub and the New Oxbow Tavern, and those aren't the only ties to clubs of the past: the (non-working, unfortunately) phone booth used to belong in Valley favorite Buzz Funbar. The bar doesn't solely lean on fond memories, though. The kitschy, bottle-cap-covered walls by the bathroom, vintage beer signs, and full stage all point to a bar that has an identity all its own, with an old-school, relaxed feel. Located just off the Apache/McClintock light-rail stop and across the street from the luxury housing of the Grigio Metro apartment complex, the bar points to a bright future for a section of Tempe that is rife with old memories and ripe for new ones.

    Scenesters love dropping by this strip mall drinking den on the south side of Mill Avenue, as do college kids, frat cats, local musicians, or anyone looking for an alcoholic escape. What's the appeal? Cheap booze ($2.50 bottled domestics and $6 pitchers) for one, as well as plenty of cheap thrills (including numerous arcade games and pool tables), and plenty of opportunities for people-watching. It's also spacious, with a slew of comfy booths and couches where you can perch with friends while soaking up the shabby-chic dive atmosphere and earning hipster cred.

  • Tilted Kilt

    Tilted Kilt

    660 W. Warner Road Tempe, AZ 85284
    480-592-0102

    http://www.tiltedkilt.com Complimenting a sports bar for its televisions is akin to complimenting a supermodel for her looks - it's redundant and unnecessary. To paraphrase the classic Chris Rock routine, "Sports bars are supposed to have big TVs!" That being said, the boob tubes at this popular chain's south Tempe location deserve special mention, simply because of their sheer size. We're talking an HDTV projector with a screen that literally stretches from floor to ceiling, giving a whole new meaning to the term "larger than life." Then again, that's pretty much the standard at Tilted Kilt, from the oversize pint glasses to the monstrous 10-ounce hamburger patties (yes, a double is available). And who needs pitchers when you can order a beer tube? The tubes come in 70- and 100-ounce sizes, basically providing a tap right at your table. Don't forget to bring some friends, though, because you'll need some help finishing one. In keeping with the bar's Celtic theme, the 17th of every month is deemed "St. Practice Day," with green beer and drink specials to keep you in shape for the real Saint Patty's throwdown in March.

    http://www.vinetavern.com Situated just south of ASU, the Vine is a popular pitstop for the college-aged crowd before, after, or -- on occasion -- even during their classes. The atmosphere can be described as busy -- long bar, pool tables, televisions, roomy booths for you and a clown-car full of friends, and a healthy, drunken vibe.
