Phoenix New Times' Description

Joe Grotto (yes, his real name) has provided a North Phoenix haven for local bands for more than a decade now with his bar and live music venue. Be they fire-breathing death metal artists, long-haired screamo types, costumed tribute acts, or just plain old hard rockers, Joe will always offer space on his stage. Two weekly open mic nights also draw all sorts of new blood to the joint consistently. The interior looks the way an old-school rock club should, with one wall covered in mirrors, spots of graffiti here and there, and various fliers clinging to the walls.

    Transplant from Alabama. Folks, most other cities across the country, even larger ones, don't have anything even close to Joe's Grotto. It is such a great place to go and listen to new rock/metal music and talent. Saw EPICA perform there, it was beyond amazing! I've met the owner and can say first hand he is a gentleman and truly helps new bands by giving them a venue to show... More >>

    Thieves! Don't ever use your credit card in this bar. They will let anyone walking up to the bar say your name and charge drinks on your tab. Not only that, but they will add a tip onto the bill after you have left.

    Fun music venue not too far away. They have great music and even open night mic to see new talent...or have some fun of your own. Totally down to earth place!

    One of the best local live music venues in the state of Arizona. Make sure that you respect the staff and be open to making new friends.

    The dollar purple hooter shots are good. Best small music venue in AZ!!!

  • Alyssa P. on 10/20/12

    Pink pussy and purple hooter shots between bands are only $1.00!!!!

    A favorite for even big-name hard rock bands to play when they come through town. Music plays six nights a week, alongside several drink specials -- and the bartenders never skimp on the shot pours.
