8 Best Neighborhood Happy Hours: Best of Phoenix 2012
Best Happy Hour, Tempe: Canteen Modern Tequila Bar
Jackie Mercandetti Canteen Modern Tequila Bar
Tacos, tacos, and more tacos -- that's what's on the menu at this popular Tempe hangout. Snag a seat on the restaurant/tequila bar's wrap-around patio for prime people-watching and killer margaritas. From 4 to 6:30 p.m., the appropriately named "Halfy Hour" offers everything on the beer and tequila menus for half price, as well as house margaritas, well drinks, and a decent-size selection of food.

Best Happy Hour, West Valley: Johnny Fox's Public House
Robbie Fox's little brother Johnny is just as much as a happy hour troublemaker as his older Tempe sib. Half off the entire menu from 3 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday means $3 Jameson shots, $6 shots of Macallan 15-year, and $7 bowls of lamb stew.

Best Happy Hour, Scottsdale: Mabel's on Main
Jamie Peachey Mabel's on Main
If you look up the word "swanky" in a dictionary (a big book of word definitions), there is a good chance that a picture of Mabel's on Main's sleek and inviting interior will be front and center. The lounge pays homage to its classic gentlemen's club roots with heavy chandeliers, leather wingback chairs, wood-paneled walls, and roomy booths. From 5 to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, the lounge offers its whole menu at half-price. See the full Best of Phoenix 2012 entry and download the app here.
Best Happy Hour, Southeast Valley: Vintage 95
The baby of the Boston Street block of eating and drinking hot spots, Vintage 95 gets our business when we want to relax with a couple of friends. The dimly lit wine bar reminds us of wintertime, with its plush leather couches and crackling fireplace -- a welcome escape from the searing sun during the summer months.
