Pop the Soda Shop Closes and Moves to Downtown Phoenix

Pop the Soda shop was always the place where you could find those rare, nostalgic beverages that seem to pre-date beverage behemoths like Pepsi and Coke. Birch beer, sarsaparilla, Moxie, and countless kinds of cola filled the shelves of the longstanding store in South Scottsdale.

Now that location has finally closed up shop, and the operation is based out of The Duce in Downtown Phoenix (525. S. Central Ave.).

There, you can hang out at the circa 1915 soda fountain and order up handmade sodas, ice cream floats, milk shakes and other treats, as well as purchase bottled pop and candy.

Sweet!

Hours are 10 a.m. to midnight, Wednesday through Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday.
