  • 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.

  • Stray Cat Bar & Grill

    Stray Cat Bar & Grill

    2433 E. University Drive Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-967-1040

    http://www.myspace.com/straycatbar Pretty young things and tattooed-and-pierced types rub elbows with hip-hop heads and ASU cuties in the nooks and crannies that come together to give shape to this spacious drinkery. Located off the beaten path on University Drive east of the 101, Stray Cat brings in a diverse college crowd who manage to mingle well with barflies more interested in their glasses than socializing. Live shows by local rock and punk bands are occasionally offered on Stray Cat's stage, and while there's no patio to speak of, a ventilated room adjacent to the front entrance offers smokers a place to satisfy their nic fits while drinking.

  • 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. More >>

  • Tempe Beach Park

    Tempe Beach Park

    54 W. Rio Salado Parkway Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-350-8625

    http://www.tempe.gov/lake/ Whether you’re looking for the best place to ride your bike, hike a trail, or just a cool place to plop down for a family picnic, this pleasantly landscaped park, originally built in 1931 and completely renovated in 1999 as part of the construction of the city’s Town Lake project, has what you want. With views of the Tempe skyline as a backdrop, Tempe Beach Park looks and feels like a whole lot more than just a widened stretch of the Salt River—which is pretty much what it is. The lake is more than just pretty; it's five miles of paths for bicycling, jogging or in-line skating circling Town Lake provide a great place to get some good exercise with a rented paddle boat or a pair of rented skates, both available there. Tempe city events like the Tour de Fat, New Year's Eve Fete, and Oktoberfest are all the more festive here, thanks to wide expanses of green grass and a new pedestrian bridge linking the “beach” to the park itself.

  • Tempe Town Lake

    Tempe Town Lake

    620 N. Mill Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-350-8625

    http://www.tempe.gov/lake/ This gateway to Tempe is practically a town unto itself. It’s home to an historic baseball field that plays host to softball games and carnival rides, as well as the Splash Playground, a one-acre water park that actually collects the water your kids are playing in, then filters, cleans, and re-circulates it in a state-of-the-art system. An amphitheater accommodates 5,000 people for concerts and outdoor trade shows. Completed in 1999, Tempe Town Lake is nearly two miles long and surrounded by a park and business and residential highrises that look out over the fun of fishing (the lake is stocked with rainbow trout and largemouth bass from November through February), boating, and even an excursion called the Rio Salado Cruise. Annual events at the lake include the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl New Year's Eve Block Party, the Tempe Music Festival, the APS Fantasy of Lights, and a Fourth of July fireworks that’s the biggest and brightest in the valley.

    480-831-9663

    After 30 years in the bar business, the proprietors of the Woodshed in Tempe are experts on running a cozy neighborhood joint. This comfortable little dive with tons of personality offers a daily happy hour from 4 to 7 p.m. with a slew of specials on beer and well drinks.

From there, it's easy enough to find an opponent for a game of pool or chat up one of the friendly regulars. After three decades behind the bar, the owners have a few interesting stories to tell, too. More >>

  • Yucca Tap Room

    Yucca Tap Room

    29 W. Southern Ave. Tempe, AZ 85282
    480-967-4777

    http://www.yuccatap.com Tucked away in a grungy Tempe strip mall, this laidback dive bar evokes a small-town atmosphere with its crowd of working-class regulars. But despite its somewhat grimy appearance, the Yucca Tap is arguably one of the more popular live music joints in the PHX, and with good reason. College kids turn out in droves for Rockaroake night every Wednesday, as well as the rollicking open-mic night on Mondays. A more diverse bunch shows up for the weekly Valley Fever bluegrass and country affair every Sunday. It's even got an adjacent craft beer and premium whiskey lounge next door to the main bar, filled with a slew of top-shelf spirits, as well as arcade games and pool tables. Meanwhile, countless local rock, indie, and Americana acts have graced the elevated stage over the past decade, including the likes of Authority Zero, Miniature Tigers, The Necronauts, and Minibosses. And the best part about the place? There's never, ever a cover. More >>

  • Zuma Grill & Lounge

    Zuma Grill & Lounge

    605 S. Mill Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-829-6775

    http://www.zumagrill.com Clustered near popular Mill Avenue hangouts Mill Cue Club and Fat Tuesday, the tiny Zuma Grill draws in countless college co-eds and serves as both a noshery and nightspot. Most of the day, it's a laidback lunch and dinner spot offering American pub eats. After 10 p.m., however, it becomes a den of dancing and debauchery. Things can get a bit cozy, bordering on cramped, during the weekends, often resulting in crowding out on the matchbook-sized sidewalk patio and a huge line to get in. Dressing to impress is recommended, especially if you'd like to bypass the masses. More >>
