House of Tricks in Tempe: Happy Hour Report Card
|The Ponyo Express cocktail at House of Tricks.|
During happy hour, you'll get $2 off glasses of wine and $1 off beer and cocktails at House of Tricks' bar. After sampling seasonal cocktails time and time again at HoT and knowing how deliciously satisfying they always are, we're just going to say you may as well go for the measly $1 off specialty cocktails and enjoy yourself. The Green Thing, which is $10 discounted, combines Hendrick's gin, cucumber, simple syrup and citrus for a refreshing, light and summery cocktail. The Ponyo Express, which might have one of the best cocktail names in town, is a $9 coconutty rum cocktail with a Orbitz soda-esque presentation. Both drinks are worth the $10 spot you'll shell out, so suck it up.
Every dish was an absolutely delicious and unique flavor experience. Every drink was tasty and refreshing. The service was speedy and cordial. The surroundings were calm and beautiful. Knock some of those drink prices down a smidge and House of Tricks' happy hour would be an A+.
