These irreverent, British pub-influenced bars (locations in Old Town Scottsdale and Uptown Phoenix) draw raucous patrons for sports viewing, bar games, off-track betting and general merriment. A wooden bar, plentiful barstools and plush banquette booths set the stage for lingering at both Bevvy locations.
Our go-to at the Old Town location is the juicy Bevvy burger, topped with American cheese, tomato, arugula, red onion, pickles and red relish on a buttermilk bun. It’s way better than your average bar burger. The Sriracha-honey barbecue chicken wings and the Duck Duck Grilled Cheese with Cheddar, Colby-Jack and American cheeses, plus bacon and a peppered hash brown patty, are also tasty and indulgent. Vegetarians have a slew of options: yin yang hummus (original and Mediterranean hummus sided with fresh veggies, pita and chipotle ranch), mozzarella sticks, Macho Nachos (tortilla chips covered in beer cheese, black beans, pico de gallo and cilantro-lime crema) and the Southwest cheese quesadilla, stuffed with pepper Jack, Cheddar, black beans and pico de gallo (we recommend adding guacamole for an extra $2). All Old Town happy hour dishes cost $8.
At Uptown, you can’t go wrong with house-made flatbread baked in a stone oven ($10). We’re partial to the luscious braised short rib (aka the Ron Swanson, in honor of the carnivorous Parks & Recreation character) with bacon, Cheddar, chives and horseradish cream. Purists may prefer the pepperoni or the margherita-style Neapolitan. And if you want a little spice, try the green chile pork, which also boasts salsa verde, queso fresco, pickled onions and fresh cilantro. A giant salted pretzel ($8) comes with beer cheese and honey mustard, and mac and cheese gets a blast in the same stone oven the flatbreads bake in. If you’re counting carbs, opt for the Muscle Bowl (quinoa, black beans, red pepper hummus and pico de gallo, with or without naan) for $8.
Old Town boasts $3 well drinks and draft pints; $5 house wines and 22-ounce draft beers; $12 pitchers; and $6 signature cocktails and mules. Uptown offers $5 house wines and craft and import pints; $9 signature cocktails; $8 mules; and $6 Tito’s Vodka drinks.
Happy hour runs Monday-Friday from 3-7 p.m. at the Uptown outpost and from 4-7 p.m. at the Old Town flagship.
