9 Best Bars for Day Drinking in Metro Phoenix
There are a few reasons you might be looking to climb into a bottle of booze well before it's five o'clock anywhere. And regardless of the reasoning, there's a bar in this Valley to meet your needs. We've got dive bars options, wine bar options, and even Scottsdale sports bar options, each of which will fill up your cup and set just the right mood for a day long bender that may, or may not, continue all night long.

It doesn't matter if you're looking to keep rocking and rolling after a long night of partying or just for some rest and recovery, this Scottsdale bar can hook you up. First of all RnR opens its doors bright and early at 8 a.m., so if you play your cards right, you'll have to wait only, like, five hours after the clubs close down. They serve breakfast until 2 p.m., so late sleepers can enjoy breakfast sliders and French toast, too -- and pour a mean Bloody Mary, which (in addition to mimosas) can be enjoyed bottomlessly from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekends.
You'll have to wait until 11 a.m. to start boozing at the Tempe brewery and restaurant, but in our opinion, it's worth the wait. Plus, coming early is one of the only ways you'll have a chance at parking anywhere near the front door. As far as drinks, Four Peaks is obviously all about beer -- and Four Peaks beer at that, but between standards like the Kilt Lifter and seasonal favorites like the Pumpkin Porter, there's usually a brew for every palate. We like the friendly bartenders who won't laugh if you have no idea what "IPA" stands for and always are ready to offer suggestions.
