If your idea of going out centers around your competitive edge, there are plenty of spots downtown where you can get your game on. The new Vig Fillmore offers free bocce courts and plenty of craft cocktails (named after downtown neighborhoods) for a more upscale gaming experience. However, if you're looking to take out pent-up frustration, you can try your hand at boxing in the ring on Sunday mornings at The Duce. If that's too aggressive for your tastes, the bar offers friendlier free, nightly competition by way of ping-pong, corn hole, shuffleboard, and foosball. For a more classic bar gaming experience, head to Rose & Crown English Pub, where billiards is the name of the game. Though the pub no longer has a dartboard, you can flex your mental muscles during the team trivia on Wednesday nights beginning at 7 p.m.

Lustre Bar
Located on the roof of Hotel Palomar right in the middle of downtown, Lustre Bar is everything Phoenix needs in a bar. Craft cocktails and a chic atmosphere make Lustre a fun stop if you're looking to impress, and in the summer months, you just can't beat a Lustre pool party. The events, featuring bikini-clad partiers and DJs, offer a hip way to cool off in the summer. Best of all, Lustre Bar also occasionally offers free yoga classes to help you recover from the fun you had there the previous night.

Lux Central
Modern vintage cool meets impeccable coffees, cocktails, and a small, ever-changing menu of comfort food at this hotspot on Central Avenue popular with the see-and-be-seen crowd.

Cross Lustre off this list. Their drinks are watered down jokes, and their food is just terrible. It was just an embarrassing waste of time for all involved.
