Tempe is, above all else, a college town. Home to a population of 50,000 students, it's no wonder the city is home to an array of bars, pubs, and lounges.
Increasing development and a growing population of urban dwellers is bringing even more diversity and sophistication to the Tempe bar scene. Case in point: Taste of Tops, a casually upscale tavern that attracts both college students, neighborhood locals and out of town visitors with a penchant for craft beers and fine wine.
If you're looking for a Tempe sports bar, one of the best in town is Lucky Break, which features locally crafted brews on tap, six high-end pool tables, and big screen TVs.
For a drinking destination that is both sophisticated and casual, head for Devil's Advocate Bar & Grill, featuring swanky leather seating, wood paneling, plasma TVs and popular open mic nights.
For a laid-back college bar steeped in history and tradition, head to Casey Moore's Oyster House. Tucked away in a quaint university neighborhood, Casey Moore's offers ambiance in spades (the historic house is said to be haunted), daily lunch specials and lots of good people-watching.
Finally, craft beer enthusiasts should not leave Tempe without a stop at Four Peaks Brewery, where you can sample the famous brewer's eight varieties on tap.
