Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Sometimes, we just like to pay a little attention to the regular folks in town. So rather than heading to a big event with all the scenester kids wearing their flashiest crap, we decided to check out a relatively new spot in the downtown Phoenix drinking rotation.

The Turf is just about what you'd want from a neighborhood pub, minus the d-baggy patrons you might find at Rula Bula or Rosie McCaffrey's. Here, it's downtown enough that the major mainstreamers are weeded out so you get a mix of hipster kids taking a night off from the super cool party scene and other relaxed locals looking for a good beer (aaaaand here's your slideshow).

Now, isn't that nice?

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.
