Phoenix New Times' Description

The Little Woody is as quaint as each of the tiny, ornamental owls perched along the ceiling, and twice as charming. Many a proud tree gave its life to create the Arcadia bar’s aesthetically eclectic and wood-heavy upscale design that’s the result of cross-pollinating a speakeasy and ski lodge, with a bit of the location’s former identity as dive bar The Great Escape thrown in for good measure. A woodpile-like design of stacked juniper logs covers most of walls in the main room, a slab or arboreal matter serves as a table, and a funky scarlet glow illuminates the bar top and those huddled nearby. While a hullabaloo of social rites takes, it isn’t as the frenetic as the activity in the neighboring game room, where a vintage shuffleboard game, two skee-ball machines, and foosball. Each is constantly in use, either by meet-cute couples or packs of friends staging a showdown. There’s little chance of ever being bored at The Little Woody.

    I've been to The Little Woody several times and always enjoy it. The atmosphere is dark and cozy and I love the tree-slice walls. Their cocktail list is marvelous and there is a lot of good food on the menu, more than at many other bars. I like that the main room is completely separate from the game room; both are fun but you can choose which atmosphere you prefer. Friendly staff, too!

    2012 Best of Phoenix Winner: Best Neighborhood Bar, Central Phoenix! The friendly staff shakes up a mean cocktail and they have a killer selection of draft beer!

    . I am told that the first person to find the small hidden brass owl each night gets a Moscow Mule on the house.

    A cool, dark, trendy, hole in the wall!
