Happy Hour

Caffe Boa: Happy Hour Report Card

The Spot: Caffe Boa 398 South Mill Avenue 480-968-9112 cafeboa.com/wordpress/

The Hours: Happy Hour is daily from 4 to 7 p.m. in the bar only.

Perfect for: Impressing the pants off someone without breaking the bank.

Interior: Tempe is not exactly at the top of the list when we think of our favorite spots for after-work drinks. But we had high happy hour hopes as we walked into the 21-year-old Tempe staple, and Caffe Boa did not disappoint. While we were a little bummed at first that happy hour is only served in the small bar area of the restaurant, there was an undeniable sense of exclusivity as we snagged part of the last open high-top on a Friday evening.
