It's not much to look at inside but the drinks are cheap and the bartenders are good. Known for hosting local bands doing originals with a large following. Good place if you're into music.

I'm not usually a bar goer, I don't drink much and I don't like to eat in the dark...but the Yucca Tap Room is one of the best local bars that I've been to! I'm from Vegas, and they invited our band, Eliza Battle, to play last night. Upon walking in, I knew this place was going to be different... More

This is very conveniently located on a major crossroad in the city of Tempe, easily accessible by public transport and bicycles from ASU. Music bands sometimes perform at this place for a cover charge, and there are a few TVs that show live coverages of important sporting events. There are two sections - one containing a pool table and a... More

This is just a dive bar. Bunch of lowlife folks getting drunk. I dont think they would serve food and did not stay to try it. Even the people inside didnt recomend it. Why all the messed up reviews on this site???

I love music & so does this place! One side has food & pool tables and is a little more calm & quiet. The other side, brings out the punk inside of all of us! It has great bands of all kinds. Sometimes they show movies on screen too. You never know what the entertainment will be at Yucca but... More

What can I say? I love the Yucca Tap Room! The Yucca is divided into two separate areas. This is a review of the left -side area - the Tap and Whiskey Room. I have not spent time in the music (right) room. The Yucca has great rotating craft beer selection - both draft and bottled, good food at very... More

This place is just perfect to me. I am 37 and the crowd is a mix of late twenties all the way to who knows what age. The food is phenominal after you cleanse your belly with a few adult beverages and rock out all night or if you just need a little food on your hungry, hungover stomach on... More

Whenever I'm in town, I always stop at the Yucca for a cold beer. And I always see a lot of familiar faces. When my friends ask me where they can meet me to catch up on life, I always tell them to meet at the Yucca. My favorite dive bar.

Saw a punk show for free the other night. It was a great place that was separated in to two sides so you can get out of the loud area if you want. Drink prices were good and they had a great beer selection.
