|The patio -- a main draw at Main Ingredient.|
We've never met a happy hour that we didn't like but just like everything else in this world, some are better than others. Whether you're playing hooky from work on a Tuesday or just need a strong cheap drink after a grueling day in your dismal cube we know a few places
In no particular order, here are our ten favorite happy hour spots. 10. Rosie McCaffrey's
- Nothing beats a Guinness and a dark cozy corner after a long day which makes this Phoenix Irish pub the perfect after work spot. They knock a dollar off all of their drinks and appetizers are half price Monday through Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. They even have a cab button for super fast cab service.
9. The Lodge
- Sometimes Scottsdale can be a bit much for us right after work but The Lodge always makes us feel right at home -- if our home was a giant log cabin filled with taxidermy. The staff is super friendly, they use actual cheese sauce on their nachos, and your non-bedazzled jeans are completely acceptable. Half price appetizers and $3 drinks until 7 p.m. are offered every single day of the week.
8. Christopher's Restaurant & Crush Lounge
- Sometimes you need a little more then cheap nachos and Miller Lite to perk up your day and that's why Christopher's is a happy hour favorite. From 3 - 6 p.m., seven days a week, stop by the restaurant's Kitchen bar or the Crush lounge and you can score gourmet burgers, wood-fired pizzas, and truffled frites for under $10 a plate and all well, wine, and beers are half off. 7. Pita Jungle
-- It may not be the longest happy hour in town and there aren't any drink specials, but if you're looking to kick back with a glass of wine and a few super cheap, super good tapas plates -- look no further. Hummus, garlic lemon chicken, shrimp -- there's a whole bunch of good eats all between $2 and $3 from 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. and from 9 p.m. to close.
