Nightlife in Tempe

Eat, drink and be merry on iconic Mill Avenue in Downtown Tempe. Wet your whistle at Culinary Dropout at The Yard Tempe, Handlebar Tempe, Postino Annex, or Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row. Relax on the patio with a glass of wine and a bruschetta plank at La Bocca Urban Pizzeria + Wine Bar or the award-winning House of Tricks, a popular local favorite eatery. Thirsty? Grab a drink at one of Tempe’s breweries, such as Four Peaks Brewing Co., Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant, Pedal Haus Brewery or The Shop Beer Co. See your favorite band at The Marquee or enjoy free live music every Friday and Saturday night at Tempe Marketplace.

Rodeo Ranch

Unlike anything the Valley has seen before, Rodeo Ranch is a playground for adults 21 and older delivers an unparalleled social experience, complete with a live DJ spinning, dancing to an unforgettable lightshow, bottle service and of course, a signature mechanical bull where patrons will get into the saddle to tame the beast. Rodeo Ranch delivers true Texas to the Southwest – from riding a bucking bull and taking your chance at a large shot wheel to hitting the dance floor or sinking into the leather and living the good life.
