Happy Hour

Compass Lounge: Happy Hour Report Card

The Spot: Compass Restaurant & Lounge, 122 North Second Street, (602) 440-3166. phoenix.hyatt.com

The Hours: 9 to 11 p.m. daily

The Details: This nightly reverse happy hour features $5 house wine (Merlot, Chardonnay, or Cabernet), $5 well drinks, a nightly cocktail special for $7, and a dessert special for only $5. On a recent Saturday night, the cocktail is the Sweet Tart (Van Gogh Grape, cranberry juice, lemonade, and Sierra Mist) and the dessert is the Molten Chocolate Cake (with vanilla ice cream and Chili de Arbol sugar), both $2 off their usual prices. The website lists the happy hour as only available in the lounge, but a hostess told me that it's available throughout the restaurant -- and the Compass Restaurant is one of those places where it's impossible to get a bad table.
