If you’re in downtown Phoenix, definitely check this out, as laid-back cool as Phoenix gets. You enter off an alley at the southwest corner of Monroe and Central, in the heart of downtown. Descend a flight of (steep) stairs, and you’re in an expansive bar with some decent flatbreads and other food to munch on. It’s especially calm for an hour or two after it opens (4pm weekdays, 6pm weekends). An adjoining music room has some strong bookings; on weekends there’s generally a late-night DJ.
