When it comes to neighborhood drinking dens that pack a punch, Four Kings Cocktail Lounge has an uppercut. Former Phoenix super bantamweight boxer Johnny "The Torch" Vasquez is a regular here, strolling the bar with drink in hand - the onetime champ now happy to play the host of toasts. With a crock-pot, microwave, and coffee pot on the counter behind the bar and the number for a nearby pizza joint taped to the wall, this homey hideout is beloved by its regulars (a scrapbook-like sign touting the joint's greatness hangs in the hallway). In a crazy-clean atmosphere amid wood paneling and the sounds of classic country coming from the jukebox, pool tables, TVs, and video games are offered in addition to cheap drinks and good conversation. The barkeep is quick to extend a handshake to newbies before their asses hit the stool and the locals are equally as hospitable - offering smiles, nods, and invitations to peruse the boxes of VHS movies in the corner (three for $1).
