Don't know about you, but we're always looking for a new happy hour to check out. Here are eight of our favorites. You're welcome.
Isabella's Kitchen in Scottsdale
Great drinks, spectacular views, and excellent food makes Isabella's Kitchen the complete and satisfying happy hour experience. Whether with friends or family, this place will quickly become a go-to spot.
Roaring Fork in Scottsdale
Five-dollar wines by the glass, a $7 prosecco, and $5 "Roaring" cocktails are the name of the game during happy hour at Roaring Fork in Scottsdale. And in that game, there are no losers.
Christopher's Restaurant in Phoenix
We’re suckers for a wine list that is fancy-pants enough for your wine snob friends (hint: if you don’t know who yours is, it might be you), but approachable enough that it won’t scare off the nervous novice in your group. Christopher’s wine director, Paola Embry, has created just such a list, and this feels like the perfect place to try something new.
T. Cook's at Royal Palms
T. Cook's at Royal Palms is perfect for a cozy, intimate cocktail. The setting is Old World romantic, but the location within a resort means you might meet someone interesting, if you didn’t come with someone interesting to begin with.
Decanter Winery in Scottsdale
Decanter offers all of the texture of a winery you might find in the middle of Napa Valley. Mahogany tables, leather sofas, and minimalist decor create an elegant and classy atmosphere. If you're looking for something more than the typical happy hour, Decanter is for you.
Los Dos Molinos Uptown
If it’s a quiet place to have a few cold drinks you’re looking for, then Los Dos Molinos Uptown will provide that and then some. The drinks are cheap, the margaritas are strong, and you really can’t go wrong with $3 beers.
Pasta Brioni in Scottsdale
The food is great and the price is right, but better than that is Pasta Brioni's warm, welcoming atmosphere. When you’re here, you’re going to feel like family.
Ticoz Latin Kitchen in Central Phoenix
Ticoz is a little like the Tiki Room at Disneyland, but with more alcohol and fewer singing birds. Also, guacammus. If this sounds like your jam, you will love this funky little spot.
