Luster Rooftop Bar
Are you in the mood to party this Memorial Day Weekend? Of course you are! If you come to Phoenix with your best group of friends or your family who are in the mood to have a few beers and listen to live music, we can’t think of anywhere better than Luster Rooftop Bar. Head here any time between May 27th and May 29th to enjoy pristine views of Phoenix, eat some local food, listen to live music, and sip on strong cocktails as you dance the night away.
Have a Few Beers
If you are in town for a holiday, chances are you will want to have a few cocktails, glasses of wine, or pints of beer. We have a foolproof list of the best bars that are must-visits during your stay here that are going to kick Memorial Day Weekend off on the right foot!
First, head to Khla to taste the spices of Southeast Asia as you sip on an ice-cold Mai Thai. What could be better? We love the vibrant colors, chilled-out atmosphere, glowing lanterns and low lighting, and large murals that take up the entire wall space. Feel like you just stepped into a cute bar in Kathmandu or a buzzing market in India as you sit here and kick off the weekend on a good note.
Next, head to Barcoa Agaveria to keep the party going. This hopping spot in downtown Phoenix is for all the tequila lovers out there who want a fun and vibrant atmosphere as they sip on tequila, mezcal, or sotol on the rocks! We personally love the Paloma or the Billionaire Flight of various tequilas that are sure to put you in the best mood ever!
Lastly, you can’t skip Bar 1912. This vibrant bar in Phoenix is for those who are cocktail connoisseurs and expect the best of the best. This low-key and minimalist vibe combines a high-end atmosphere with a chilled-out space that focuses on the flavors and tastes of high-quality liquor. We recommend heading here for an intimate start to a date night on Memorial Day Weekend.
Visit Local Wineries
If you just can’t get enough of the local beer and wine, then we have a few more places for you to venture to during your Memorial Day Weekend! Phoenix is not only home to buzzing bars and craft breweries, but there are dozens of wineries that are close to downtown Phoenix that are perfect for a winery crawl or half-day trip.
We recommend checking out Merkin Vineyards. Merkin Vineyards in Old Town Scottsdale is close to Phoenix, with multiple tour companies in the big city offering day trips to this vibrant and cool winery in the historic section of the mountain town of Scottsdale, AZ. Head here to taste pours of red and white wine from a family-owned vineyard that makes its own wine from 110 acres in the Verde Valley.
Next, you can’t miss LDV Winery during a sunny Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend. LDV Winery offers a wine tasting room in both Phoenix and Scottsdale for people to enjoy. Both tasting rooms have a high-end aura and ‘high-altitude’ wine that reflects the crisp and clean air.
Last, head to Winery 101. You simply can’t miss this fun handcrafted wine post in Phoenix during Memorial Day Weekend! Head to Olive Avenue in Peoria, AZ to enjoy the spacious and comfortable tasting room, friendly service, large food list, and expansive wine tasting menu that will have something for everyone.
For those who are coming to Phoenix with their kids for Memorial Day Weekend, don’t worry — there are events for you too! We love how Phoenix has dozens of outdoor sports, like hiking, cycling, and birdwatching, that are perfect for people of all ages. Plus, Phoenix has shopping, amusement parks, museums, and cultural attractions that young toddlers and teenagers alike are going to love.
After a long weekend of exploring and seeing all that Phoenix has to offer, you can retire to your spacious and modern home from Scottsdale Rentals. Cozy up with your loved ones and watch a movie on the smart TV before falling asleep in your plush and comfortable bed. What more could you want for an exciting Memorial Day Weekend?
