The Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport bills itself as “America’s Tastiest Airport.” That may or may not be true depending on your tastes (and how familiar you are with airport food and prices), but there are definitely plenty of options to choose from if you want to grab a quick drink.
Here are the best places to drink at the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport.
NYPD Pizza: Local craft brews on tap and East Coast-style pizza. You may be 2,000 miles away from New York City, but thin-crust pizza and Arizona’s craft beer were meant to be together.
Copper Plate Grill: Sports on the TV, beer on tap (in both large and small sizes), as well as wine and cocktails. Stick to the drinks here, though.
Taberna del Tequila: You can find tacos and breakfast food at Taberna del Tequila, but you’ll want to stay for the namesake tequila. There’s also wine and beer if that’s more in line with your pre-flight preference.
Cheuvront Restaurant & Wine Bar: Burgers, cheese, and charcuterie, and wines by the glass. All you can ask for when in need of a relaxing moment before takeoff.
Chelsea’s Kitchen: More known for its food than its alcohol selection, Chelsea’s Kitchen is still a great spot to order something from the full bar and enjoy all-American cuisine.
Sauce Pizza and Wine: Few things pair like pizza and wine. Grab a slice (gluten-free options included) and something off the restaurant’s respectable wine list.
Blanco T & T: If you’re wondering what the T & T stands for, you won’t be disappointed: Tacos and Tequila. Sit back, enjoy some tequila neat or in a cocktail, and prepare yourself for the air time ahead of you.
Cowboy Ciao: A full bar served up alongside Southwestern food. If wine is your thing, Cowboy Ciao has a nice long wine list as well as a few good beers available.
Four Peaks Brewery: It doesn’t get better than the source when it comes to beer. Hit up the airport location of this well-regarded local brewery and sip down some delicious craft beer.
Press Coffee Food & Wine: This place covers the essentials: coffee, food, and, most importantly, wine. Perk up with an espresso, then chill out with a glass of wine off the wine-by-the-glass menu.
Sir Veza’s Taco Garage: As if the fully loaded burritos, tacos, and other Mexican fare weren’t enough, Sir Veza’s has an excellent beer selection as well (get it, Sir Veza’s — cervezas?).
Zinc Brasserie: French food with the French wine to match. Enjoy your meal with wine, beer, or a cocktail from the full bar.
