Shady's

2701 E. Indian School Road Phoenix, AZ 85016 | East Phoenix | 602-956-8998

Location Description:

An unpretentious bar and lounge with an English flair, Shady's is a place to chillax while sampling a few pints of Bass or Guinness, shoot some billiards, watch cult movies on the TVs, or converse with your fellow urbanites. It's got a living room-type feel with a fireplace stocked with candles and some of the most comfortable black leather chairs we've ever sat on. Owned by Brad Henrich (the cat behind Scottsdale's TT Roadhouse), it also has one of the most fly jukeboxes in the Valley, stocked with a cool cross-section of CDs ranging from Al Green and Richard Cheese to The Smiths, and others. Best of all, if you're a cocktail connoisseur, Shady's bartenders can mix up some of the freshest and most delicious dive bar cocktails in town.
