  • Arcosanti

    Arcosanti

    I-17 at Cordes Junction Phoenix, AZ 85029
    928-632-7135

    http://www.arcosanti.org You probably think of those clever little copper bells whenever you hear the name of this place, but Arcosanti is about much more than rusty musical souvenirs. This high-elevation experimental town began construction in 1970 in central Arizona (about 70 miles north of Phoenix) by architect Paolo Soleri, who used a concept he dubbed “arcology.” His plan—to prove that local urban conditions could be improved while minimizing the negative impact of city-dwelling on the earth—combines adaptive reuse and “green” ecology long before either was considered fashionable. The ongoing construction of this never-ending city is home to between 50 and 150 people, but visitors come from around the globe to visit the tilted concrete panels cast in a bed of desert silt on which this popular tourist attraction rests. They ogle the bronze-cast apse, built in the form of a semi-dome; the intricate and organic architecture; and the fun-and-educational five-story visitor’s center, café, and gift shop (where you can snag a bagful of those Arcosanti bells!). Also worth seeing: the community’s oddball home elevations, storefronts, and stunning outdoor amphitheater. Too tired to head back to town? A two-bedroom "Sky Suite" is available for overnight guests. More >>

  • Aunt Chilada

    Aunt Chilada's Restaurant & Hideaway

    7330 N. Dreamy Draw Drive Phoenix, AZ 85020
    602-944-1286

    http://www.auntchiladas.com This historic landmark nestled in the shadows of Squaw Peak Mountain offers signature dishes like spinach and chicken burros and picadillo fajitas (not to mention a chimichanga that puts all others to shame) as well as specialties like the cheesy mushroom-and-chili Hamburguesa. Magnificent chow for reasonable prices. More >>

  • Brigett

    Brigett's Last Laugh

    17222 N. Cave Creek Road Phoenix, AZ 85032
    602-788-0507

    http://www.brigetts.com Even if it looks like a biker bar, with all those shiny-chrome hogs out front, Brigett's real charm is as one of Phoenix's unsung karaoke capitals. The bar hosts sing-a-long fun seven nights a week, and the songs you'll hear performed are as diverse as the people singing them. There might be a dude with long hair and a flannel shirt singing rock 'n' roll, followed by a middle-aged fellow belting out some chart-topper, followed by a biker babe doing her own kooky thing. Everybody's friendly here, and if you can't be talked into a duet, maybe a game of pool or darts will suffice. More >>

  • Catch 22 Sports Grill

    Catch 22 Sports Grill

    18725 N. 32nd St. Phoenix, AZ 85050
    602-482-9222

    http://www.catch22phx.com Phoenix's Catch 22 does a little bit of everything. The best category for this place is "sports bar" - they have 28 flatscreen TVs tuned to the big games and a nice selection of tap beers - but the proprietors go the extra mile in a few different directions. Patrons can shoot a little stick or relax on one of the leather couches, which gives the bar a bachelor-pad feel. If you're more interested in music, there's an open mic night on Thursdays and a rotating cast of bands on the weekends. Oh, yes, and they're doing the party-hosting thing, too, with the recent addition of a banquet room and a full menu. The crowd varies by the time and day, but depending on when you stop in you'll find everything from face-painted sports nuts to button-down office workers unwinding after a long day of work. More >>

  • Cyphers: The Center of Urban Arts

    Cyphers: The Center of Urban Arts

    9201 N. 29th Ave. Phoenix, AZ 85051
    602-297-4377

    https://www.facebook.com/602CYPHERS This popular Westside venue, located just across from Metrocenter Mall, is devoted to street-level art forms—by which owners Danny "Scooby" Morales and House Magana mean it provides space for performing and practicing the art of b-boy and hip-hop dancing, graffiti art, DJing, emceeing, and skateboarding. Both men are founding members of the Furious Styles Crew dance collective, and have led the local hip-hop scene since the mid-90s. Cyphers (which takes its name from a street term meaning a group of b-boy dancers, slam poets, or emcees while they’re performing in public, and is subtitled The Center of Urban Arts, natch) functions as a dance and deejay studio during the week, with classes and seminars on breaking and popping and mixing disco vinyl. This one-of-a-kind clearinghouse for all things hip hop continues to thrive and to give street cred to art forms that, especially outside urban areas, get little attention. More >>

  • The Dubliner Irish Pub & Restaurant

    The Dubliner Irish Pub & Restaurant

    3841 E. Thunderbird Road Phoenix, AZ 85032
    602-867-0984

    http://www.dublinerpub.com Considered the oldest Irish joint in Arizona, the Dubliner also has the unique distinction of having been the first bar to sell Guinness in the Valley. Its braggadocious bartenders also claim its annual Saint Patrick's Day party is the biggest around, their craic is mightier, and that there's more traditional Ireland-style entertainment each week at the Dubliner than any of their competitors. It's hard to argue with the latter boast, since the North Phoenix public house has showcased Celtic musicians almost every night for close to a quarter century. Sired in 1986 by renowned local publican Seamus McCaffery, it's maintained the same neighborhood bar vibe mixed with the usual Emerald Isle touches and tchotchkes throughout the years. More >>

  • Fiddler

    Fiddler's Dream Coffee House

    1702 E. Glendale Ave. Phoenix, AZ 85020
    602-997-9795

    http://www.fiddlersdream.org This all-volunteer, all-acoustic Westside music café just celebrated its 26th anniversary, and remains Phoenix’s only smoke-free, alcohol-free small performance venue. Widely known for hosting local and national musical acts, Fiddler’s Dream is also renowned for its unusual open-stage policy: Following most Friday and Saturday night shows, any act is offered 10 minutes (or three songs) onstage. A long list of music festivals, live acoustic concerts and national touring acts keeps this place hopping on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, when the friendly staff also serves up coffee, tea, and tasty diner food besides. There’s a real vibe here, too—squint a little, and it’s easy to pretend you’re in a North Beach bistro circa 1968, waiting for Joni Mitchell or Judy Collins or Joan Baez (or one of the other folky chick singers whose names begin with J) to perform.

  • Joe

    Joe's Grotto

    13825 N. 32nd St. Phoenix, AZ 85032
    602-992-1007

    http://www.joesgrotto.com Joe Grotto (yes, his real name) has provided a North Phoenix haven for local bands for more than a decade now with his bar and live music venue. Be they fire-breathing death metal artists, long-haired screamo types, costumed tribute acts, or just plain old hard rockers, Joe will always offer space on his stage. Two weekly open mic nights also draw all sorts of new blood to the joint consistently. The interior looks the way an old-school rock club should, with one wall covered in mirrors, spots of graffiti here and there, and various fliers clinging to the walls. More >>

    2244 W. Bell Road Phoenix, AZ 85023
    602-863-3725

    http://www.shenanigansofphoenix.com From the outside, this two-level tavern might appear to be just another humdrum storefront at a quiet strip mall in north Phoenix, but once you get inside, it's a different story altogether. There are plenty of amusements at this rocking watering hole, whether it's jersey-wearing sports fans gathering to root on their particular team, wanna-be singers grabbing the microphone during weekly karaoke nights on Fridays and Saturdays, or the occasional live band.

  • Stacker

    Stacker's

    2855 W. Cactus Road Phoenix, AZ 85029
    602-863-3477

    The cool red lights at Stacker's in North Phoenix bathe the cheery clientele in a groovy shade of maroon. In the 30 years the bar has been open, Stacker's has gained a reputation for its hot wings and Philly cheesesteaks, and both can be washed down by their selection of 14 beers . There are televisions above the cozy booths and along the entrance wall, so that fans can kick back and enjoy basketball and football games while regulars match wits at a pool table nested in the back of the bar.

    http://www.whiskeyriversaloon.com It's all about the Wild West here, only much more civilized. The walls are painted in colorful desert landscape and sunset murals, and the hardwood dance floor leaves plenty of room for two-steppin'. Weekends are the busiest, as hordes of good ol' boys in cowboy hats and plaid shirts gather around the bar to talk over drinks. More >>
