Rocky Point Cantina - Closed

1001 E. 8th St. Tempe, AZ 85281 | Tempe | 480-968-7879
Map

Location Description:

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. The vibe is great, particularly because many bands come to hang out in the crowd before and after their sets. They serve food too -- mostly Mexican fare, which pairs well with the host of hardcore, death metal, and punk bands that hit the spot
