We live downtown and pay extra for all the perks (discounts) to spend our money in downtown Phoenix instead of in Old Town Scottsdale. Unfortunately, the majority of the service employees in downtown Phoenix don't share the same generosity as their employers and take every opportunity... More

I love Bar Smith! Especially on a Saturday night. We've been going for years and it is a great place to meet up with people. The dance floor is always packed and the music is always dance inspiring!

When it first opened, Bar Smith had the most scrumptious fried chicken sandwich I had ever tasted. It went off the menu late last year, and the food went a little iffy at the same time.

Creativity abounds on both floors of this bi-level beatshack located in downtown Phoenix. Dance the night away on the open rooftop or inside is house music heaven. Always bringing the very best of house/hop hop artists including Questlove, Louie Vega, Marques Wyatt and more. Solstice Saturday's are a night dedicated to Good Music 7 years strong! Bar Smith is exclusively 21+.
