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 other Tuesday marks The Hot Plate at The Lost Leaf.

The Hot Plate doesn't heat up your Tuesday night too quickly. Instead it brings the evening to a slow boil with DJ Smite's all vinyl relaxed reggae rhythms and The Lost Leaf's bevy of brewski bargains. 

Check out the most recent edition here and our impressions after the jump...

The Place: 914 N. 5th St., Phoenix, AZ 85004

The Time: 10 p.m., every second Tuesday.

The Cover:

The Art: The bar's heavily bricked walls are one of the premier galleries in Downtown Phoenix. Ernesto Yerena and Philip Lumbang's "Dead Relatives", a show consisting of a series of Dia De Los Muertos animal cartoons, is currently on display. 

The Style:

What we loved: The diverse collection of brews, on special and just in general. The citrusy $3 Prescott Amber Ale was our personal favorite. We also loved the mash-up of hipster and reggae culture.

What we didn't love: The Lost Leaf may have some form of live music every night, but its music space/stage/dance floor is a little cramped and in the corner for us. 

Are we going back? Yeah, but not every time.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
