Happy Hour

Bitter & Twisted Cocktail Parlour: Happy Hour Report Card

The Spot: Bitter & Twisted Cocktail Parlour 1 West Jefferson 602-340-1924 www.bitterandtwsitedaz.com

The Hours: Happy Hour Tuesday through Friday 4 to 7 p.m.

Perfect for: Showing both locals and out-of-towners that downtown Phoenix is worth a look.

Interior:From the lofted ceilings, stained concrete floor, exposed brick walls, dark wood finishes, and relatively nondescript exterior to the fact that we were asked if we had a reservation (we did) for happy hour on a Wednesday evening, it would be hard to argue that this spot housed inside the historic Luhrs Building isn't one of the coolest places downtown has to offer. It's unlike anything else in the Valley and probably the closest thing to something you would find in any of the country's other large cities. Also, the check will arrive in an old cigar box. Just saying.

KEEP PHOENIX NEW TIMES FREE... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
