Lovecraft | North Phoenix | Southwestern, Mexican, Bars and Clubs | Restaurant
Chris Malloy


Craft beer bars are pretty similar. Large beer selection. Local stuff. Lots of taps. Lovecraft injects a dose of personality to the Phoenix craft beer bar. Its theme is New Mexican. Fiery chiles lace the mac-n-cheese, lobster bisque, and burritos, and a ristra dangles by the entrance. Its small glass chandeliers and mismatched mirrors and chairs make the place feel almost like an antique shop. Lovecraft’s beer menu is big, yes: more than 100 brews deep. Local favorites abound, including selections from The Shop, Arizona Wilderness, and Wren House. But co-owner Rebecca Golden also manages to snag hard-to-find regional offerings from favorites in Flagstaff, Southern Arizona, and beyond. The cider selection also contains some real gems, like the lauded Blueberry Spaceship Box from Superstition Meadery. Note: The rooftop bar is now open, and it's dog-friendly!
