Phoenix New Times' Description

This distinctive-looking CenPho destination for both drinkers and rockers is pretty steeped in history. Its unique Googie-like angular architecture illustrates its mid-century origins as a neighborhood watering hole dating back to the 1950s, which hosted performances by such legendary performers as Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson a few decades ago. These days, however, Rips is home to more of a punk and rockabilly types, who venture into its throwback milieu to witness gigs by local and touring bands from those genres, as well as flocks of trendy twentysomethings who turnout for hip monthly dance events like Shadowplay and Obscura, or just to sample some of the brews and booze that’s served with nary any affectation and soak up the retro vibe.

    Great happy hour prices! They had live music this past weekend and I'm so glad I didn't miss out because I found a few new bands I like! They even have karaoke on sunday and monday nights that I don't think I'll be missing next week :)

    You'll see more pomps & coifs at Rip's than any other dive bar in town, hands down. But don't let the style intimidate you, Rip's is still a dive bar with cheap-o prices & some fun goth dance nights.
