Every Saturday night DJ Hoodwink's trendy turntable tunes and the refreshing $3 razzmatazz take over the heavily forested patio, which features an outdoor bar made out of actual rebar.
|Rockin' it at the ReBAR.|
901 N. 4th St., Phoenix, AZ 85004
The Time: Every Saturday, 9:30 p.m. - 2 a.m.
The Cover: Zero.
The Parking: Street.
|The adult treehouse. |The Bar:
While the bar has an undeniable urban chic vibe, it also has a strong rainforest/adult treehouse feel to it. The indoor and outdoor bars look like they grew straight out of MGMT's "Electric Feel"
music video. It's shocking. Drink special-wise, the $3 razzmatazz is an inexpensive but tasty cranberry vodka with lime.
The Music: DJ Hoodwink's dance beats, which leaned toward indie, set the tone for the evening even though there wasn't much in the way of dancing going on. The volume was somewhat low and allowed the majority of attendees to stand at the bar or sit at their table and have a conversation.
|No fooling, DJ Hoodwink at Rockin' the Rebar. |
The Style: A take on good ol' downtown Phoenix hipster wear -- V-necks, vintage tees, and tight jeans for the guys, and ladies rocked a pretty similar look.
The People: A stylish crowd of Downtown Phoenix's finest, a mixture of indie rockers and young professionals.
|The savory but fairly embarrassing razzmatazz. |
What we loved: The tree-heavy decor. We felt welcomed into the jungle and we enjoyed the fun and games.
What we didn't love: The razzmatazz may be cheap and tasty, but the name makes it a little embarrassing to order.
Are we going back? Indeed.
