Phoenix New Times' Description

We’re at least 300-odd miles from the shore in Phoenix, so the concept of some kitschy dockside bar native to port cities is a foreign notion to us landlubbers. Except when we drop anchor for an evening with the scurvy dogs at Swizzle Inn, that is. This notorious north central Phoenix landmark of a maritime bent is the kinda place where vintage diving helmets, surfboards, and depth gauges are objets d'art, and a large photograph of a great white hangs above the pool table. Its inky eyes seemingly follow us when we wade through a crowd three deep to sample the sea of spirits available behind the bar. Conversation tends to resemble a roar as patrons often shout to be heard over the blaring jukebox, especially when it’s playing a crowd favorite like Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline.” You can even hear it from your car while parking, which indicates that another memorable night at the Swizzle is on your horizon.

    Don't go here! I think the Owner of the bar went through gene therapy to revert back to a primitive state. Don't give her any of your business, because she "-don't need your money you mother f**kers".

    This is the best neighborhood bar around. The drinks are good and inexpensive. The patrons are friendly. Stop in and have a beer.

    Mystery Bag shot at say... 2am, may not be the wisest decision, just throwing that out there!!
