Last Drop Bar in Paradise Valley: Happy Hour Report Card
Somewhere between a plush resort and a Southwestern lodge, Last Drop's elegantly rustic bar and lounge area is the staycation of happy hour hot spots in town. The surrounding mountains and ambiently lit patio area make for a great escape after a long day at work. The menu specializes in a different happy hour every day, like Mixology Mondays, Wine Wednesdays and Street Taco Thursdays, making each day unique and worth the post-shift drop-in.
Heather Hoch The specialty burger at Last Drop Bar.
We stopped into Last Drop on a Friday, and the happy hour feature was the house specialty burger and your choice of local draft beer for $16. The burger is pretty much everything you could ask for--with a big, juicy meaty patty, a soft, but sturdy bun and luxe toppings like locally-made goat cheese, bacon and a chipotle aoli. You also get your choice of a greens salad or fries. Though the fries, in our opinion, were a bit underseasoned, the salad was a nice, light option that was dressed to perfection.
If burgers aren't your thing, try out the "Tree-O" menu, where you select three appetizers (normally priced between $8 and $14) and get a tree of half orders for $15. While the tree presentation is a little kitschy, it's a great way to try out a bunch of different items on Last Drop's tasty menu. The crispy truffle ricotta croquettes and duck confit empanadas with mole are some of our favorites.
