Bliss/ReBar is a great place to relax on the patio with a group of friends while people watching and sipping a fruity drink. The bar attracts a diverse, yet friendly crowd of folks who want to hang out, grab a bite, or perhaps dance if the right song is playing.
We visited Bliss/Rebar at the right time last weekend, since the Theta Nu Xi sorority fete was in full swing. These ladies toasted drinks while some couples appeared to be on their first date, and a gal impressed her girlfriend by arm wrestling a friend at the bar. A good mix of dance and top 40 played, prompting some girls to sing along to "Teenage Dream," though their guy friends seemed to show a little more enthusiasm for the Katy Perry hit.
We grabbed a custom made cocktail and hung out on the patio to scope out an eclectic mix of folks that can best be described as "the downtown Phoenix" crowd. People watch with us in this week's Club Candids slideshow.

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.
