Exploring Phoenix's Hottest Bars

Exploring Phoenix's Hottest Bars

Barhopping is truly an art. Mapping out the hot spots and choosing the order to visit them is no easy task. What if you go to the wrong bar too early and it's dead? We hit up the Rebel Lounge around 10 p.m. for 1984's The Cure night and it was already packed with goths stomping the dance floor. DJ Xam Renn did not disappoint Cure fans with his song list and Robert Smith cutout. Next up was Gracie's Tax Bar — the newest dive bar to pop up in downtown Phoenix. The music was selected by attendees via jukebox, and even though it was warm out, the patio was too cool not to enjoy. For last call, Cobra Arcade Bar was a must, with the dance floor showing no signs of stopping even at 2 a.m. Photos by Mello.
