Garden Bar Phx is right off I-10, so it’s easy to stop by as I pass downtown. The cute house has plants inside to continue the garden vibe, but I prefer sitting outside at picnic tables or in the Adirondack chairs. They serve seasonal cocktails using fresh local ingredients, so there’s always something new to try. My favorite is the cucumber gin and tonic, but I also like to try their local beers on tap.

Arizona Wilderness DTPHX is across from M.O. Best Mini Park, off North 3rd Street, in the heart of downtown Phoenix. I love sitting on the outside patio and checking out the surrounding murals. Water conservation is a major concern in Phoenix, so I appreciate this brewery is using drought-resistant hops requiring less water and promotes sustainability. The brewery also sources local ingredients for its beers. I especially love the unique tastes in their slushie-inspired IPA and rich Russian imperial stout.

The outdoor tables are under shade trees and have umbrellas to make the experience more comfortable. The bar is the patio of the boutique hotel, so there’s a sense of luxury here. I typically order The Last Drop, a craft cocktail, but tons of Arizona beers are on tap.

Just a few blocks from Garden Bar Phx is Gracie’s Tax Bar, making this area a great place for bars when you want to find places to go out without driving and parking. The name comes from the location, which used to be a tax office. It now boasts a killer outdoor space with a jukebox and games. The happy hour deal includes $7 mini pitchers, so I like to stop in and have drinks and their homemade food, like the buffalo chicken sammie.

The Theodore Beer + Wine Bar and Bottle Shop might sound fancy, but it’s a funky place to grab a drink. The tall outdoor tables have tons of stools to pull up, so I can join a group with community-style seating. They have the best draft beer selection I’ve seen locally, with plenty of local offerings plus unique drinks from around the country. They also have outstanding non-alcoholic options for when I want the taste of a drink without the buzz.

The interior bar is sleek and upscale. My go-to order is, of course, a sidecar, which is a shot and beer combination. Combustion is one of my favorites, which pairs Angry Orchard with a Fireball shot. There’s also a lot of beer on tap, including craft and domestic.

When I think of fun places to go out, a tiki bar is definitely on the list. HULA’S Modern Tiki Uptown has industrial garage doors that raise to let in light and fresh air, but the outdoor seating and patio are my favorite spots to hang out.
