699 S Mill Ave
Finding love in Tempe is not easy. When you think you’ve finally found the one, do whatever possible to keep that special someone on your arm, like wining and dining your date at one of Tempe’s most romantic wine bars, La Bocca. The trendy Downtown Tempe spot offers locally sourced ingredients, pastas, personal pizzas, and small plates, plus an impressive cocktail selection and wines by the glass.
850 S Ash
We won’t name names, but a handful of Scottsdale-type bars and clubs have taken over Mill Ave and let’s just saw they’ve attracted that same crowd Old Town is, well, umm, hated on for. You should know that there is a place where the dudes don’t use an entire bottle of hair gel and cologne before going out on a Friday. That place is Casey Moore’s. The casual, laid-back pub serves food and drinks into the late hours of the night, and if you stay until last call, you might just see something paranormal (apparently the place is haunted…).
