Worth Checking Out 6/8/2010

Read a bunch of reviews on this dive before finally biting the bullet and convincing a buddy to check it out. Worried that I might be murdered if in the area after dark, got there at 5:30 on a Monday, expecting to have a nice frosty PBR (afterall, that's what all the other reviewers rave about), but the place was closed. Pros: True-to-Form Cons: Not open 'till 6pm on Mondays more

Hipster Breeding Ground 2/8/2010

Bikini Lounge is a good place to go if you're a degenerate. If you're looking to find a hooker or score crack cocaine your journey is at an end. It is immediately apparent why hipsters are drawn to this shit hole by the toothless jack-o-lantern grin of the meth addict who checks ID's at the door. This is mostly a customary procedure is there is no chance in hell his amphetamine addled brain can read or do simple math. Inside is packed nut to butt with hipsters and hookers plagued by chronic halitosis bestowed upon them by their diet of Parliaments and Pabst Blue Ribbon which is available to drink straight from the mini-pitcher (not actually ironic, this place has no clean stemware). The barmaids appeared sociable (specifically herpes) and friendly, although I had to gauge this from a depth of three hipsters away (7"" to 8 1/2""). It's a tight fit, but the body oils and mustache wax coating every surface of the hellishly narrow cooridor allows for freedom of movement. Exposed wiring, cracked plasterwork, and over priced damaged and beer stained artwork are some of the most striking architectural features of this unique establishment. I include artwork as part of the architecture as they all appear to have been in place for an unimaginably long time and load bearing. The load I refer to seems to be the congealed irony that has been lost on all of the hipsters in attendance that they willingly subject themselves to this pestilent purgatory regularly. In comparison, the basement of the Nile Theater would be a pleasant place to enjoy a picnic. I will forever regret hour of my life I will never reclaim from this defiled den of destitutes. I am deeply embarassed and ashamed to know anyone who admits to purposefully setting out and patroning this 'establishment'. Pros: Small and dirty Cons: Still exists more

Great little dive bar 12/26/2008

This little dive bar is a great place to hang. I went there at the end of a disastrous evening and the bartender with her wise cracks and missing teeth made me a tasty drink. It was like the scene from the matrix where neo ate the cookie and everything was all better. But don't take my word for it; go have some ?all better? for yourself. Pros: dive bar Cons: dive bar more

Cute scene, but beware the juke box nazis! 4/30/2007

I was all prepared to love this place. Kitschy-cute decor, sweet old lady bartender, great crowd, but then they cut my juke box songs off in the middle! What gives, Bikini Lounge? I know torchy broken hearted Moz songs arn't for everyone, but why'd you stop them half-way through when that juke box ain't cheap? You owe me $4, Bikini Lounge. Aw, I can't stay mad at you, you're too much of a fun place. more

Best Cheap Drinks In Phoenix 11/22/2006

I've never had a bad time at Bikini. Always a great vibe. Wonderful REAL people. The drinks are cheap, the service is..well, you order a drink and they bring it...can't get much better than that. It gets crowded, but it's worth it. First Fridays, its a mecca. Pros: Great Vibe Cons: If you're easily frightened, the neighborhood might scare you. more

The Bikini! 12/16/2005

When I first heard about the Bikini Lounge, I was a little skeptical. A beach dive bar in downtown Phoenix? Needless to say, I've changed my tune. The Bikini has cheap drinks, a great jukebox and easily the most eclectic group of people I've ever seen in Phoenix. Old guys listening to Simon and Garfunkle mix easily and readily with the First Friday crowd. The best place in Cen Pho, bar none. Pros: friendly, inexpensive, great decor Cons: out-of-the-way more

User review by dream9913 9/30/2005

One of the greatest dive bars in Phoenix, everyone should go at least once - but I'm sure they'll be back for more! Decent jutebox with a DJ Tusday nights! Pros: Diversity in people, cheap drinks, great atmosphere more
