    The Harp Pub & Restaurant

Bars & Clubs

  • Smashboxx


    What Smashboxx lacks in descriptive signage, the popular Old Town club makes up for in attitude. Leather booths line one side of the place, and a backlit bar sparkling with vodka bottles lines the other, and in the middle, a mix of night-outers... More on Smashboxx »

  • Fatso's Pizza

    Fatso's Pizza

  • Critic Reviews

    • If you haven't been building your bitters collection, it's time to start. Bill and Lill Buitenhuys, the couple behind AZ Bitters Lab, explain that chefs have spice racks and bartenders equip themselves with an arsenal of bitters, which act as the seasoning element to finish and round out any cocktail flavor.

From there, it's just a matter of what kind you choose, and they told us everything you need to know about where bitters came... More on Crudo »
