  • Bar Smith

    Bar Smith

    130 E. Washington St. Phoenix, AZ 85004
    602-229-1265

    http://www.barsmithphoenix.com Creativity abounds on both floors of this bi-level beatshack located in downtown Phoenix. Bottle-tossing mixologists like Chase Crain show off their furious flairtending skills and whip up handcrafted artisan cocktails at the downstairs bar. Meanwhile, talented turntablists work the wheels of steel from an elevated platform on the rooftop lounge as urbanites and heavenly-looking honeys mix and mingle with their drinks. Street artists like Lalo Cota are also known to create one-of-a-kind murals on a large chalkboard that occupies one wall, turning Bar Smith into an impromptu gallery of sorts. Be sure to grab a picture of their efforts before last call, as its proprietors tend to erase the creation at the end of the night.The place serves lunch and dinner as well, focusing on American comfort food that goes well with alcohol, from a roasted barbecue pork sandwich and spicy chicken wings to old fashioned pot pie. Stop by for a midday meal or a casual bite before the game. More >>

  • Charlie

    Charlie's

    727 W. Camelback Road Phoenix, AZ 85013
    602-265-0224

    http://www.charliesphoenix.com For years, this swishy CenPho saloon was known as the "lil bitty ol' pissant country place" that almost exclusively attracted only tight-Wranglered gay folk and Marlboro Mary's. But times have changed and so has Charlie's. A renovation last year has improved the décor and expanded its size considerably, offering a much larger dance floor on which a far more diverse crowd can either bust out with two-steppin' or shake their asses to high-energy dance, country music, and Latin-oriented jams all night. Some things haven't changed; there's still the always-muscular bartending staff and after-hours dancing until 4 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. More >>

  • El Capri

    El Capri

    2135 E. Van Buren St. Phoenix, AZ 85034
    602-244-0551

    For most of the week, this east-side discoteca remains cold and dark, hidden behind a chain-link fence and locked up tighter than Fort Knox. On Friday and Saturday nights, however, the place comes alive with colored lights, hundreds of dancers, and Latin beats. The interior is home to a rollicking sea of dancing humanity, including plenty of caballeros y damas. Though the bar offers good selection of tequilas and south-of-border beers, the focus of El Capri is more on dancing than drinking. A steady stream of bachata, banda, and cumbia is pumped out by the DJs, while norteño bands occasionally perform. Gentlemen typically sport sharp cowboy garb and ostrich-skin boots, while ladies tend toward tight dresses, low-cut blouses, and skintight jeans. Even if you don't get to bailar with a bonita babe by night's end, chances are you'll eventually run into her mingling about or at the Mexican food joint down the street. More >>

  • Element 14 (formerly EDM Phoenix)

  • Furia Musical

    Furia Musical

    1810 E. McDowell Road Phoenix, AZ 85006
    602-252-7900

    Like a mash-up of reception hall and dive bar, Furia Musical is a trippy dancing and drinking scene decked out in mirrors and a black-and-white checkerboard floor. Crazy-loud Latin music blasts its way out of a powerful sound system, pulsating past an illuminated crescent moon that hangs over the dance floor, chairs and tables draped in black cloth, and up to a small, bright corner bar where old-school amigos down a dizzying array of cheap beer and cocktails from friendly barkeeps. A big-screen TV sits in the corner of the dance area while a second room (separated by Roman columns and white sheer curtains) houses two pool tables, a jukebox, and a vending machine selling bottled waters wrapped with a pack of smokes for eight bucks. If select nights of live bands, DJs, and concursos de tubo (pole-dancing contests) don't get the heart pumping, try a trip to one of the Furia's restrooms. The men's is like a closet of urinals, and in the ladies', you've got five stalls, one curtain, and two seats. Sure it's a little freaky, but at Furia Musical, it's all in good fun. More >>

  • Gypsy Bar

    Gypsy Bar

    50 W. Jefferson St. Phoenix, AZ 85003
    602-732-5490

    http://www.gypsybarphoenix.com Like other flashy downtown Phoenix nightspots, Gypsy Bar comes alive with light, sound, movement and color after sundown, with life emanating from both its lustrous, LED-laden in-house dance club and the adjacent arcade teeming with more than 40 state-of-the-art video games. Inside this second-story adult playground next to CityScape’s Lucky Strike, the thrum of electronic beats wrought by DJs performing between a pair of HD video screens blends with the electronic bleeps from skeeball machines, redemption games, and two-player interactive arcade contraptions like Guitar Hero and 2 Fast 2 Furious. At the center of this audio-visual maelstrom is a three-sided bar and dining area, where you can score street tacos, short rib sliders, flatbread pizzas and other New American small plates, as well as any of 30 specialty cocktails, in-between getting your dance on or game on.

    http://www.karambanightclub.com The expansive dance floor at this gay Latin dance club is almost always packed with bodies, whether it's boys dancing with boys, gals getting down with other gals, and various other combinations. Although the crowd here is Latino-heavy, it gets downright ethnically diverse during frenzied weekend events, when folks of every race and sexual orientation dance until dawn. More >>

  • The Monarch Theatre

    The Monarch Theatre

    122 E. Washington St. Phoenix, AZ 85004
    602-456-1991

    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Monarch-Theatre/151721091624098 Patrons of The Monarch Theatre seem to frequently contract dance fever whenever beats begin blasting out of its in-house wall of sound. Each victim at this downtown Phoenix dance emporium has their own individual symptoms: some folks start to shimmy, others begin to bounce, while the rest wind up merely pumping fists or bobbing heads as fast as the BPM will allow. The diversity of boogaloos being busted withing the confines of its 7,000-square-foot dance floor tends to encompass a wide variety of electronic dance music during any particular week. If it’s a UK Thursday event, you can expect a skull-shaking auditory assault of dubstep, glitch, or drum ‘n’ bass. When the Solstice crew puts up a special event, expect hours of progressive or deep house. Touring DJs that visit also bring laptops and hard drive full of everything from electro-house and trance to psychedelic, nu-disco, and other atmospheric jams. If anyone’s beat their feet into submission, however, various booths and posh seating opposite of the bar is waiting. More >>

  • Zoan

    Zoan

    4301 N. 7th Ave. Phoenix, AZ 85013
    602-265-3233

    http://www.facebook.com/theZoan Previously known as zGirl Club -- as well as Misty’s, Desert Rose, and Talk of the Town before that -- this after-dark destination in the heart of the Melrose District gay epicenter as one of the longest-running lesbian bar establishments in the Valley. Under its current existence as Zoan, it always seems to be crammed to the gills with Sapphic sirens of every stripe. From “bois” with spiky hairdos to jockish gals in shorts and tee shirts, ladies from around the Valley gather here to flirt and frolic while shooting pool or relaxing in its gorgeous side lounge. Dancing fun is offered within the video bar vibe of the main room, where high-energy club tracks and eye-catching visuals are played on numerous HD screens and Zoan’s bartenders pour such adult beverages as the “Pop My Cherry.” Hit the place during its electronica night, and you’ll likely find girls grinding on each other to Lady GaGa pop or EDM tracks, as well as the occasional femme fatale in skin-tight black pleather.
