Cave Creek, 480-575-9900
# of wines by the glass: 13

Vibe: The gunslinger ambiance is clasically Cave Creek, with Stetsons hung on a pegboard coat rack near the copper bar and country musicians crooning in the background. All that’s missing is the louvered saloon doors.
Food: Mosey on in for a heapin’ helping of cheesecake served in a mason jar (free on Fridays with two-bottle purchase), or nosh on charcuterie and cheese plates.
Events: Highlights of Brix’s daily specials include $5 wines by the glass on M, live music and tastings W, “Cigar Thursdays,” and $7 mimosas on Su.
