The Phoenix New Times pick for Best Rock Club in 2010 and 2011, this live-music venue draws crowds that huddle around indoor and outdoor stages to groove and wail every night of the week. Concerts and festivals stage local bands, indie rockers, and national acts playing genres ranging from bluegrass and reggae to jam music and rock 'n' roll. Amid the big-name acts, the house upholds beloved traditions; Grateful Dead fanatics and people with tie-dyed flesh emerge to party on Sunday nights, and each Thursday, burgeoning starlets perform karaoke with the support of a full live band. Beside the outdoor stage, a spacious patio facilitates mingling under the sky's star-freckled firmament. At the indoor bar, barkeeps fill glasses with mixed drinks and brews while colorful lights flash against walls. Black leather couches and huge art canvases line the lounge area, and a dance floor carved before the stage affords up-close views of the passport stamps canvassing rock star's wrists. AZCentral noted: "Not far from Mill Avenue, the Sail Inn offers a whole different scene, with a cool vibe and laid-back people."

Canadian electrofunk duo Chromeo exhales party-starting inertia, kicking off its Night Falls Tour by rolling out a carpet of dance-floor passports. Melding the talents of guitarist, vocalist, and French-literature buff Dave 1 with the dexterous fingers and throwback savvy of synthmaster P-Thugg, Chromeo has earned reverence from funkophiles for its slick grooves and mastery of jam architecture. Fans can expect congenial beats, riffing Moogs, and song craft that father-and-son yachts can enjoy together in support of the band's latest album, Business Casual. Inflating the soulful evening, singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Mayer Hawthorne channels wandering Motown spirits with a retroactive Detroit sound, and French funk enthusiast Breakbot sets the scene with genre jumping and remixes that rumble like tubas in a Cuisinart.

Devil’s Advocate, which takes its name from the Arizona State Sun Devils, serves handmade grub and frosty mugs filled with frothy beverages. The sinful menu is rife with hearty tacos, burritos, prime-rib sandwiches, burgers, and pizzas, all made from scratch. The mango-habanero wings ($6.99) are a popular handheld inferno, meant to be washed down with a handpicked jury of beers on tap. The posh, dark-wood interior of Devil’s Advocate, with plentiful leather seating, bookshelves, and a crackling fireplace, resembles a judge’s private quarters, and the shuffleboard, pool table, weekend dance floors, and walls adorned in glorious liquor selections and 39 sports-laden high-def TVs resembles a judge's home.

Mill Cue Club boasts 10 pool tables, a friendly staff, and a wide selection of conversation-inducing drinks, making it ASU’s unofficial pool hall and an ideal destination for cue-based leisure. Round up three other billiard sharks for two hours at a table, where you can hold a standard doubles match, a trash-talk-heavy tournament, or a 120-minute trick-shot contest to make use of a new pyrotechnic rig. On-tap beers with nametags such as Guinness and Four Peaks Brewery lubricate rusty tongues and prepare them for top-shelf shots of tequila, whiskey, and vodka, perfect for toasting slices of perfectly toasted toast. An outdoor smoking patio provides a venue for menthol-based bonding, and multiple flat-screen TVs make it easy for players to check scores or yogurt-commercial trends.

Fat Tuesday has achieved the impossible dream of bringing authentic bayou eats and Mardi Gras libations into the swamp-free lands of Arizona. Sample their transported tastes with snappy appetizers such as the alligator nuggets, shipped fresh from New Orleans before being breaded, fried, and served with a Cajun remoulade ($9.95), or the 10-piece hand-breaded shrimp, slathered in sauces that range from mild to mildly indignant ($7.95). For the main meal, try the Tuesday burger, a half pound of seasoned ground beef cooked to order accompanied by an entourage of tongue-lashing Cajun fries ($6.75). Fat Tuesday's ice-crowned claim to fame is the daiquiri menu, showcasing 25 sweet, potent deliriums. Obliterate boring tipples with a large barrel of Banana Banshee, concocted from creamy banana and coco liquors ($7.75), or challenge mortality with a medium Triple Bypass, in which tasty cherry flavors collide with vodka and grain alcohol ($6.50).

I started working with food when I was 16 as my first job. I applied to restuarants all over Ahwatukee and got hired at On The Border Mexican Grill on Ray and I-10. I worked there for four years and then moved to Key West, Florida, where I started my bar career as a barback at a high-volume tourist bar on Duval Street. I strayed away from restaurants a few times to try other ventures, but I always returned within a year or two. I saw a lot of unique dishes during my Key West travels, such as Caribbean inspired dishes and seafood, which different for me because I'm from Arizona. Back home in the desert, I fell in love with Southwest and Mexican dishes, and I like eating various of cultural cuisines. But at the end of the day, nothing beats a good burger and fries, in my opinion. So I would say that my adventures and travels led to some interesting working opportunities that allowed me to see a wide variety of restaurants and really develop a passion for the food and beverage industry. Do you adhere to any sustainable or eco-friendly practices? We love riding bikes. Most of our staff does not own a car, and we encourage everyone in the neighborhood to ride a bike to the restaurant. We offer three bike racks?one of which is indoors?and we allow bikes everywhere in the restaurant. The ownership team has been mountain biking together for years, so promoting the beautiful marriage between bikes and craft beer was the natural next step. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? We do a lot of events at Spokes. We've had science lectures, comedy shows, beer festivals, live music, art shows, and live painting. We hold trivia night every Monday at 6:30 p.m. and karaoke every Tuesday at 9 p.m. There is always a beer class or wine tasting just around the corner. In your own words, how would you describe your menu? Our menu is new American with a Southwest twist. We offer made-from-scratch sauces and feature turkey on the menu as our main protein. We roast all of our own turkey in-house before slicing or pulling it for a variety of unique dishes, such as our pesto turkey sandwich on ciabatta. Our goal was to make classic bar food from scratch, such as our battered-and-fried chicken tenders and half pound ground chuck burgers. We also put our own twist on familiar Southwest dishes, such as our Spokes quesadilla. It's rolled, cut sushi-style, and stacked in towers on a plate of homemade tzatziki and chipotle aioli for dipping. Our kids menu features a great build-your-own meal where kids can pick from four categories of sides, drinks, and main dishes. The result could be something like a hamburger with applesauce, sweet potato fries, and cranberry juice.
