If motorcycling were a religion, then Steel Horse Saloon would be considered a venerated house of worship. This North Phoenix favorite serves as a hawg heaven, rich with motorcycling memorabilia and populated by plenty of rough-and-tough ramblers, as well as blue-collar barflies and weekend warriors who live in nice suburban neighborhoods but like to play badass when they can. These guys ride atop their steel steeds every weekend for two-night sets by local rock and country bands or stop by for numerous cycling events and parties held throughout the year, like the annual Bike-toberfest.
