Downtown Phoenix's Lost Leaf is a cozy house-turned bar in the ultra artsy Roosevelt district (with some pretty great art, natch).

It's a popular neighborhood spot to drink, hang out and hear local music -- especially on Tuesday nights, when the bar hosts Downtime.

The Bar: The exposed brick, the front porch and the cozy wood bar say it all: This place has got character. Lost Leaf dwellers can grab bar stools at one of the high top tables near the bar or tuck away in a dim corner. The DJs are next to the bar in an intimate area with a singular red light rotating like a lighthouse in front of the tables. We wouldn't call this a "dance floor" because it's more like a place to hang out and watch the guys work.

The Drinks: On top of their large collection of beers, wines, sakes and ciders, the Lost Leaf offers a number of specials during Downtime including $4 Blue Moon, $3 Kilt Lifter, $2 PBR and $3 Bud Light.

The Music: Downtime's resident DJs Ellery, Hartbreaks and Riot Earp play glitch, dubstep, bass and more. The night also hosts guest DJs, which are often announced on the Downtime Facebook page.

The People: Lost Leaf is mostly inhabited by neighborhood folk looking to grab a drink and relax. The scene is hip without pretension and is the perfect spot to chat since it's not too crowded or loud. The bar is busiest around 11 p.m.

The Fashion: Most patrons are in their downtown hipster best, with jeans and fitted tees, but as the name "Downtime" implies, the scene is relaxed more than anything, so come as you are.
What we loved: As part gallery, the Lost Leaf hosts work from various Valley artists such as Lalo Cota, JB Snyder and Eric Cox.

What we didn't love:
Some of the drinks are a little pricer than we could get at other Valley

Would we go back? Yes.
