Astor House: Happy Hour Report Card

The Spot: Astor House, 2243 N. 12th St. 602-687-9775. facebook.com/astorhouse

The Hours: 3 to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday

The Details: All beer is $3 and cocktails are $5. As for wine, it depends on when you get there: From 3 to 4 p.m., all glasses of wine are only $3 and bottles only $12. This deal jumps up to $4/16 from 4 to 5 p.m., and finally $5/$20 from 5 to 6 p.m. There are no appetizer discounts, but you can still pair your drinks with a selection of five tasty "nibbles," priced from $4 to $6 each.

The Interior: Tucked away in the Coronado Historic Neighborhood outside downtown Phoenix, Astor House -- like the sister restaurant, Tuck Shop, to which it's attached -- can be easy to miss (Hint: If you've gone around the traffic circle and past the Sunshine Market, you've gone too far). Open since April, Astor House is the kind of cute gathering spot that makes you think every neighborhood should pick a house or two to sacrifice to the gods of community leisure and nibbles.
