No one has to explain why Phoenix and its environs are tailor-made for New Year’s Eve revelers to ring in 2018 on an awesome note.
From the eastern suburbs to the west and the city in between, Phoenix and the Arizona Sun Corridor (which also includes Tucson) is a region where bars are plentiful and will be full to the brim with partiers looking to ring in 2018 on a great note. Here are the five best bars to celebrate the New Year in the Valley of the Sun.
2 E. Jefferson St., Phoenix, AZ 85004
If you see this downtown Phoenix bar, you will no doubt have a New Year’s Eve to remember. Lustre Bar is a rooftop bar that will not only have great spots for you and your crew to drink in the New Year, but you can swim into it as well on the pool in the middle of the bar. How cool is that?
1514 N 7th Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85007
Another downtown Phoenix bar is also deserving of you and your squad’s attention. The SideBar is not as swanky at Lustre Bar, but this dive bar will provide bar patrons with great cocktails and a relaxed atmosphere that will allow you to ease into the New Year on a good note.
Yucca Tap Room
29 W. Southern Ave., Tempe, AZ 85282
The fun won’t just be confined to the City. For anyone who has ever partied in the Phoenix area, you’ll know that the suburbs are just as bar-riched as Phoenix itself. Tempe is often described as ground zero for Phoenix’s bar scene, and one of the best here is the Yucca Tap Room, home to great food and cold beer that should make your New Year’s Eve one to remember.
Casa Film Bar
2905 E. Speedway Blvd., Tucson, AZ 85716
Head down to the college town of Tucson where the bar scene is vibrant and friendly. One of the best bars to visit on New Year’s Eve in this lively city is Casa Film Bar. This East Speedway bar is often regarded as one of the best in Southern Arizona, and one step and one sip of their expansive drink menu will make you see why that is so.
The Shelter Cocktail Lounge
4155 E. Grant Rd., Tucson, AZ 85712
If you find the Casa Film Bar too packed, then make your way to this awesome Oak Flower bar. The Shelter Cocktail Lounge is a spot where cocktails reign and the good times forever roll, especially on New Year’s Eve night.
