Are you tired of visiting the same old bars? Maybe you’re worn out from one too many nights at the Vegas-esque clubs in Old Town. Maybe you’ve grown tired of your weekly trip to that trusty old dive bar. Or maybe you’ve gotten just a little too old to go back to the college bars on Mill Avenue.
We’ve got you covered no matter your reason. Check out our list of themed bars to help you mix it up and enjoy a new kind of outing.
Are you ready to jump down the rabbit hole? Make a trip to Hatter and Hare. This Alice in Wonderland–themed bar took the Valley by storm when it opened last year, and it’s decked out from floor to ceiling in all your favorite features from Lewis Carroll’s classic tale. Once inside, you’ll be greeted by colorful couches, playing cards and the White Rabbit’s clock. Of course, no theme bar is complete without signature cocktails. You can sip on favorites such as the Tweedledee, Bandersnatch, Queen of Hearts or the ever-popular Cheshire Cat.
#FrayLife Tip: Traveling with a large group? Try the Tea Party. This boozy concoction comes inside a huge teacup with the cocktail of your choice.
You don’t have to decide between playing video games and a night out; Cobra Arcade Bar offers the best of both worlds. This downtown Phoenix bar has 40 of your favorite throwback arcade games,including Galaga, Mario Bros., NBA Jam and Space Invaders. In addition to its rotating list of arcade games, this popular theme bar frequently has live music and food trucks on site. You can also sip game-themed cocktails such as the Krazy Kong, Kirby and Garbage Pail Kid.
Cheap drinks, excellent live music and even better people watching? What more could you want? Low Key Piano Bar is a fun-filled spot for any fan of music and singalongs. This underground dueling piano bar has talented performers who can tackle even the most obscure of song requests. You’re sure to have a good time whether you’re singing to your favorite drunken lullaby or imbibing in their legendary fishbowls. Cheers!
Hula’s Modern Tiki brings a taste of Hawaii to the Valley of the Sun. This Old Town Scottsdale bar has everything you need for your own personal luau where you can enjoy its many island-themed beverages such as a Mai Tai, Hawaii 5-0, Painkiller and the Scorpion bowl. Its many Polynesian-inspired entrees are equally impressive with fare such as crispy coconut shrimp, fish tacos and spicy Thai fish cakes. Plus, the tiki flair and island vibe will make you feel like you’ve found a beach oasis in the middle of the desert.
No list of Phoenix theme bars is complete without Rustler’s Rooste. This bar and steak house is a classic piece of the local culture thanks to its cowboy vibe and unforgettable views. It’s also the kind of place where you can enjoy live country music and come face-to-face with a live bull. That’s right: Horny the Bull is Rustler’s Rooste’s very own live mascot. This authentic cowboy spot even offers fried rattlesnake on its menu if you’re really feeling something different!
