Phoenix New Times' Description

Boasting retro-futuristic swank, a relaxed upscale vibe, and a staggering selection of beer and wine, the always-stylish SideBar has become one of downtown Phoenix's premier drinking destinations. Perched on the upper floor of the historic brick building that once housed the Emerald Lounge and the original location of the Lost Leaf, the spot features a swinging '60s cocktail vibe and décor that was mapped out by renowned designer Judith Testani (of Olive & Ivy fame). A mix of mid-century retro and more modern elements -- including the programmable light wall and Paul Christiansen-like ceiling lamps -- SideBar's digs are matched in beauty by the precision cocktails served at the funky-looking illuminated bar. Try such tasty concoctions as the White Rabbit and the Psychedelic and see if you agree.

    This is my favorite bar. The bartenders are amazing. Well, I lied. Honestly, the female bartenders make better drinks. Not joking! I am sorry, lone male bartender.

    Every drink is great, they have an amazing beer and wine list. My only gripe is that I cannot have their whiskeyberry sour anymore due to gluten intolerance.

    I can dream, though.

    2010 Best of Phoenix Winner: Best Neighborhood Bar, Downtown Phoenix. Landmark cocktail lounge that's both a hot neighborhood gathering place & a cozy throwback to clubs of yesteryear.

    Just know that every drink is well-crafted and tested over & over again before it is presented. That's what makes all of them yummy. Staff is always friendly--neighborhood-bar feel with always somethi

    Happy Hour M-F from 4-7: $4 wells, $1 off all beers, $2 off wine by the glass, $8 off all wine bottles and $4 apps. Laid back vibe with local PHX art for all to enjoy! Tell Josh Holy Pinata sent you.

    Atmosphere and unique bones make Sidebar golden. Aloft its second-floor perch, skyline views and 7th Avenue buzz give this watering hole reasons to return. Cocktails, suitable.
