Big Fish Pub - Closed

1954 E. University Drive Tempe, AZ 85281 | Tempe | 480-449-3474

Location Description:

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, including Grey Daze (the forerunner of Linkin Park), Eagles of Death Metal, and Hoobastank, just to name a few. And just as its stage has featured an endless amount of rock and hip-hop acts over the past two decades, the Big Fish Pub itself has hosted countless music fans, drinkers, and ASU kids. This landmark Tempe bar has gone through a number of changes over the past couple years, going from a raucous rock club to a more of a jazz/blues joint and back again. These days, however, it features a rather versatile and varied lineup of music events during the week, including everything from heavy metal and hip-hop showcases to random nightly shot specials.
