The drink selection at the Taxi Inn is limited to beer and wine, but that doesn't seem to matter to its patrons. Everyone's having too good a time soaking in the dive bar ambiance and sucking down Pacificos and Tecate to care about the fact that the only mixed drink being served are Micheladas (a.k.a. suds spiced up with tomato juice and Clamato in the style of a Bloody Mary). Located a stone's throw from Sky Harbor International Airport (hence its name), this dope dive doesn't see many travelers stopping off before their flight, but instead is the stomping ground of both the blue-collar crowd and a mostly Hispanic clientele. The signs outside promise pool, and Taxi Inn delivers with three billiards tables. Things really get popping, however, when neighborhood folks come out to catch UFC events, boxing matches, and -- especially -- soccer games. Keeping the Taxi Inn in mind during major events like World Cup is a must if you want to joyously bellow out "GOAL!" with fellow fútbol fans.
