Five Places to Party on Christmas Night in Metro Phoenix
Christmas Day is certain to be a busy time for anyone and everyone around the Valley. But once all the packages have all been unwrapped, the yule log has gone out, and the last of the eggnog has been quaffed, what's there to do? Plenty.
While most businesses will be taking the day off to allow employees to spend time with their kith and kin, a few bars and other nightlife establishments will be hosting events on Christmas night for those eager for some festive drinking and dancing fun during the most wonderful time of the year.

If you wind up being unsatisfied with what Santa left in your stocking and under the tree, the "Evil Elf" known as Djentrification will offer treats and gifts of the vinyl variety during the Christmas edition of his 602'sdays night at the Grand Avenue tiki dive. Rare platters and unique cuts will be dropped by the DJ and his guests over the course of the evening, as well as a variety of funk and hip-hop. The records roll at 10 p.m. Admission is free.
Some of the Tempe scene's favorite music acts will band together on Tuesday for a special evening of performances on Christmas night.
