Board games and beer mix with music and madcap fun at this quaint neighborhood tavern nestled near Paradise Valley Mall. Its proprietors provide a little bit of everything for their patrons, including drink specials and distractions aplenty. Come in during the quiet hours and enjoy such all-day specials as $2.50 domestic bottles, $3 well drinks, and $4 small pitchers until 7 p.m. You'll also have access to Candyland, dominoes and other games straight from your childhood, as well as bar-top touch-screens, darts, and pool. Paradise Lounge also frequently features local musicians, with artists of the country, folk, acoustic, and singer-songwriter variety performing two or three nights a week on a small corner stage. Weekends are for special events, and the owners love throwing theme parties like Hawaiian-styled affairs complete with hula-hoop contests and steel drums. The friendly atmosphere means the bartender might spend considerable time talking with their regulars before taking your drink order, so bring a healthy dose of patience when you visit, as well as your wallet.
