Tempe – Social Hall
Happy Hour: Daily from 3:00pm – 5:00pm + after 10:00pm on Fridays and Saturdays
Looking to have some fun while you get to hang out? Social Hall in Tempe is the place to play. They offer incredible American/New Mexican comfort food, delectable craft drinks, and tons of free games for you and your friends and family to enjoy all in their historic building. Enjoy a signature cocktail while you try your hand at shuffleboard, Skee-ball, billiards, ping pong, giant Jenga, foosball, darts, and arcade games galore. And as the weather continues to warm up, we couldn’t suggest a better place to spend your evenings than their beautifully landscaped courtyard. It boasts fire pits for chats and hammock swings for a little rest after a long day. Never been and don’t know what to try? There’s a reason their green chile mac n cheese with carnitas is an award-winning dish. Pair it with their happy hour special of drafts, wells, and house wine – or spring for a boozy capri sun to really get in the spirit of the season. See you there!
Downtown Phoenix – The Main Ingredient Ale House & Cafe
Happy Hour: Monday from 11:00am – 11:00pm + Tuesday – Sunday from 11:00am – 6:00pm
Located in the historic, beloved Coronado Neighborhood, The Main Ingredient Ale House & Cafe is an institution when it comes to happy hour in Downtown Phoenix. They even have an all day happy hour on Mondays! Modeled after an old house that was built in 1922,the all brick building features original touches of time past and houses a scratch kitchen that creates an atmosphere that makes you feel at home. Their specialty is high-end sandwiches and salads that are all made to order; and they have an extensive craft beer and cocktails list to please every palate. The best part? Their menu uses local Arizona ingredients – making this the ultimate place to go and celebrate our community’s culture. Our favorite place to spend our time there is out on the expansive outdoor patio with our pups in tow. If you happen to make your way there, we can’t rave about the artichoke dip enough. Pair it with a Ruby In The Ruff that features Western Son Gin, Lime, and Rekorderlig Passion Fruit Cider for an unforgettable night out. So, what are you waiting for?
South Scottsdale – Diego Pops
Happy Hour: Daily from 3:00pm – 6:00pm
Created within the walls of a historic Southwestern pottery shop and aiming to bring the beaches of Yucatan to Phoenix, the chill vibe at Diego Pops is sure to have you turning happy hour into happy hours. Their open kitchen delivers unbeatable dishes made from scratch with fresh ingredients; and some of their best picks include both classic takes and reimagined tacos, and innovative brussels sprout nachos. In addition, their creative cocktails, welcoming décor, and large outdoor patio will have you feeling like you’re on vacation far away at 3 pm on a weekday. Grab your group, order a round of their signature Diego Margaritas, and get to de-stressing. Oh, and if you’re popping in on a Monday, enjoy $3 tacos paired with $5 margaritas for the ultimate happy hour celebration. Cheers!
