The Phoenix bar scene has never been more lively, with a smattering of hip cocktail lounges and wine bars adding a dash of panache to the local nightlife scene.
If you're in downtown Phoenix, check out the views from the Lustre Rooftop Garden, a chic rooftop bar perched on the third floor pool deck of the Hotel Palomar. The excellent city and mountain views pair nicely with a glass of wine or hand-crafted cocktail.
Serious cocktail drinkers will want to check out Bitter & Twisted Cocktail Parlour, also in downtown Phoenix. The creative cocktail menu features fresh herbs and house-infused spirits. Many of the fruits used in the cocktails are grown locally.
If wine is your passion, plan a stop at Central Wine Bar, where you can enjoy wine flights and special tastings. For date night, plan a romantic rendezvous at the Merc Bar, a dimly lit midtown bar with cushy seating and a great wine list.
When you're looking for lively atmosphere, check out Culinary Dropout in central Phoenix. The restaurant and bar is home to "The Yard," a lively outdoor space featuring games, picnic tables and a fully-stocked bar.
For a cozy, intimate and charming barfly experience, don't miss The Whining Pig, home to an exhaustive beer and wine menu, gourmet bites and fun retro board games.
