4 Hidden Bars in Phoenix and Gilbert, Arizona

If there is one thing I love, it is finding hidden bars! The last time we visit London (May 2019), I found a few hidden bars that you can check out in this post here. I didn't realize that Arizona (Phoenix/Scottsdale area) has a few cool "hidden" bars. I ended up staying in Arizona late last year for about a month and got to have the time to check these all out! The atmosphere in each are all very different, but super cool!


PHOENIX

Pigtails

Address: 1 E Washington St #128, Phoenix, AZ 85004

This is such a cool hidden bar in Phoenix. It is in a newer building. You walk through a "meat shop" in the front and through the swinging doors. The bar in the back is beautiful. There is a whole living wall of plants behind the bar.


I highly recommend trying:

  • A Three Hour Tour

  • Pebbles Flipstone

  • Purple People Eater


Platform 18

Address: 3626 E Indian School Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85018

This one really isn't HIDDEN but I still had to include it. This is one of the coolest bar experiences I have had. The company is called Century Grand and they are responsible for this simulated train car cocktail bar experience. All of the window are showing a loop of a train going through the Rocky Mountains. The lights even flicker like an old train car! Reservations are required. You pay a $25 per person deposit at the time of booking. This money gets applied to your final bill. There is also another bar on site called Grey Hen RX, a bar inspired by New Orleans.

Killer Whale Sex Club

Address: 922 N 6th St, Phoenix, AZ 85004

OMG such a cool place! It's sort of a "hidden" bar that also serves some pretty amazing Korean / Philippino food. At night, the restaurant is super dark inside. Check out their Instagram for some better shots of the space!


GILBERT

The White Rabbit

Address: 207 N Gilbert Rd, Gilbert, AZ 85234

I would say out of all of the hidden bars, if you didn't know what you were looking for this is the most challenging bar to find. You enter via a side street and then have to gain entry from the bouncer at the door. You then go down a back alley staircase and into the bar. It is larger than you would expect inside but has a Victorian speakeasy vibe to it.
