¶lim¶51 Ways to Beat the Heat

Pin it

Dear Heat,
We’re staying cool for the rest of the summer with the Valley’s iciest drinks, sweetest desserts, splashiest pools, most soothing spas, best indoor entertainment and a few super cool road trips. See you next summer…
Love, Frosty in Phoenix

Underground Drinks at the Rokerij
Dungeons get a bad rap. We associate them with shackles and iron maidens and medieval sadism, conveniently forgetting one important fact: Dungeons are fantastically well-insulated. Enter the basement bar at the Rokerij. Abutted by several thousand cubic-tons of earth and stone, the dark, den-like space looks and feels a hemisphere apart from late-summer Phoenix. Better still, owner Richardson Browne has sagely swapped out the shackles and iron maidens for tasteful Renaissance-style artwork and friendly bartenders who spin the best iTunes playlists in the Valley. With triple-digit temps soaring outside, nothing beats $5 happy hour glasses of Klinker Brick and a little Band of Horses. That’s why we’re shackled to the Rokerij.
