The Vig

4041 N. 40th St. Phoenix, AZ 85018 | East Phoenix | 602-553-7227

Location Description:

The Vig lies on the outskirts of the busy Arcadia neighborhood. A haute hotspot popular with the stylish and chic, its pub sensibilities shine through as a better-than-average neighborhood spot. Quality selections of tap beer and bottled wine are a starting point here. Once drinks have been chosen, it's time to order something from the varied food menu, which leans toward "gastro-pub" territory without being too wild. There's also a nice variety of vegetarian- and vegan-friendly options. The Vig is famous for its spacious patio, serviced by its own outside bar for those who seek open-air relaxation or a smoke. The patio will sometimes feature live music in the form of local acts or DJs. If you're into the classic Italian game of bocce ball, you'll also find a court off to the side of the patio. All that makes The Vig the sort of neighborhood bar that's worth driving to, even if you live far from Arcadia.
