The Duce in Phoenix: Happy Hour Report Card
|The honey-kissed Duce lemonade packs a punch.|
If you want a Jack and Coke or a Jameson and ginger, The Duce won't have it for you. If you want a drink that takes 20 seconds to make, The Duce can't do that for you. If you want a cocktail that's $8 or less, The Duce doesn't have one for you. If you want well liquor, well, you get the picture. You can go to almost any other bar in the world for those things, and The Duce makes craft cocktails from insanely fresh ingredients. While that certainly takes more time and costs a little more, it also tastes way better.
Two dollars off the cocktail prices only sort of soothes the sting of paying over $10 for a drink, but after one sip of a basil gimlet, you're sure to be sold. The cocktail menu, which features classic drinks done right, is sure to have one of your favorites, or you can find a new favorite in the Duce lemonade. If none of that sounds appealing, you can always grab a $2 can of beer during happy hour as well.
The Duce just isn't your typical bar and restaurant scene, so you shouldn't expect it to be. What sets it apart in terms of type of service is also what makes it so deliciously unique, and it would be a shame to discount a place with such great food and drink just because it's non-traditional and nuanced. Go get a mason jar of cocktail and a mason jar of pie and see what we mean.
