Saturday Night Special

Support your local dive bar! Like, now, folks. With mom-and-pop joints droppin’ like flies in central Phoenix – Chez Nous is apparently moving, Ham’s is bye-bye soon – you’ve gotta fight the powers that be and throw your money at deserving homegrown establishments. So instead of dressing up like a red-carpet reject and heading to Scottsdale, dress as yourself and head down to the Hidden House, where you can mingle with the unpretentious crowd at The Shop, an underground/old-school hip-hop night spun by DJ Al Page and special guests.

KEEP PHOENIX NEW TIMES FREE... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
