Yucca Tap Room

Map & Directions 29 W. Southern Ave.
Tempe, AZ 85282


Phoenix New Times' Description

Tucked away in a grungy Tempe strip mall, this laidback dive bar evokes a small-town atmosphere with its crowd of working-class regulars. But despite its somewhat grimy appearance, the Yucca Tap is arguably one of the more popular live music joints in the PHX, and with good reason. College kids turn out in droves for Rockaroake night every Wednesday, as well as the rollicking open-mic night on Mondays. A more diverse bunch shows up for the weekly Valley Fever bluegrass and country affair every Sunday. It's even got an adjacent craft beer and premium whiskey lounge next door to the main bar, filled with a slew of top-shelf spirits, as well as arcade games and pool tables. Meanwhile, countless local rock, indie, and Americana acts have graced the elevated stage over the past decade, including the likes of Authority Zero, Miniature Tigers, The Necronauts, and Minibosses. And the best part about the place? There's never, ever a cover.

    If you're in the mood to go out and have some drinks, but don't feel like dressing up all decked out like you're going to Scottsdale, this is the place to be. THURSDAY nights are a must to go. The DJ's usually play underground music, the atmosphere is pretty chill, and no one's here to judge based on your looks. Heck, I've gone here with my dance crew after practice, came in our...

    Whipped Cream Vodka, Orange Juice, Soda Water = Orange Julius. Be careful, they're delicious and sugary and easy to drink.
