Melissa Fossum Casey Moore's is a relaxed Irish bar by day and hipster hangout by night.
This Tempe party institution is a must-stop before and after most ASU football games. However, its expansive patio and casual atmosphere make for a great place to hang out after a long day of boozing in the sun at the ballpark. Plus, the stick-to-your-ribs fried bar bites, like mozzarella sticks, chicken tenders, and fried zucchini, will help you pump your energy back up. Just be aware that the crowd drastically shifts from families and sports fans to a bunch of hipsters around 9 p.m. So if you plan on staying all night, bring your Unknown Pleasures T-shirt.
The new location of Salty Señorita on the south side of Old Town definitely got a Scottsdale-style facelift. The chic, updated look still services a more casual crowd, so don't feel the need to dress up. Salty Señorita also has a large patio in front for sunny spring lounging. As with its old location, we're sure crowds will flock to Salty Señorita for brews and margaritas after the game.
Lustre Rooftop Garden

Though there aren't any Cactus League games near Lustre's downtown Phoenix locale, this should be your go-to spot for relaxation and fun if you're staying in the area. The rooftop pool and bar will surely oblige some cool-down time, and you can even go downstairs and check out the fantastic cocktails at Blue Hound if you're looking for something a little fancier. Lustre usually has a good mix in its crowd, due to its proximity to downtown stadiums, hip atmosphere, and the fact that its attached to Hotel Palomar.
