2. Don Woods’ Say When Phoenix
Well this is a solid surprise cocktail lounge in an up and coming area.

3. The Womack Phoenix
It’s such a cool little funk-cocktail lounge. The Womack is a cocktail lounge with classic cocktails, in a trendy throwback setting with live music and a patio. The Womack cocktail lounge operating hours are Tuesday – Thursday 4:00 pm – 12:00 am, Friday & Saturday 4:00 pm – 2:00 am, and Sunday 6:00 pm – 12:00 am. Happy hour is on Tuesday – Friday 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm. The Womack cocktail lounge has always been my favorite but the new patio takes it to a new level. What a nice swanky cocktail lounge perfect for a date on a weeknight. Very comfortable, very friendly, and very intimate place. From the moment you pull up, it’s intimate and welcoming, from security standing at entrance, to the waitresses that frequently attend to the guests on the patio.
