Looking for something to do this weekend? "Night Owl" is a quick guide to special nights at bars and clubs around town. We'll give you a few hints re: cover, dress code, music and atmosphere. Every Friday and Saturday marks Live Music at The Loft Again.
The Loft Again
is the quintessential dive bar. So when they have their weekly Live Music
nights, don't expect anything other than a room full of regulars, broken stools and classic rock covers.
The Place: 15015 N. Cave Creek Rd., Phoenix, AZ 85032
The Time: Every Friday and Saturday, 9 p.m.
The Cover: None.
The Parking: Lot.
The Bar: The extent of the drink specials according to the bartender: "What are you drinking? I'll make it special."
The Music: Power Steering
brought out the classic rock radio standards and played them adequately. The bar welcomes different local groups every Friday and Saturday night. Next week welcomes The Backstage Crew
The Style: Blue Jeans, camo and cowboy hats.
The People: Middle-aged and over barflies who were more interested in the pool tables and the full bar than the band.
What we loved: With all the hipster dive bars around town, it was refreshing to experience the genuine article.
What we didn't love: The lack of any beverage bargains.
Are we going back? We probably won't be calling it The Loft Again.
