|Zgirl Club (formerly Misty's)|
We're not saying all lesbians are lushes, but good drink specials can go a long way in attracting hordes of hot gay women. zGirl Club's got specials almost every night of the week, including two-for-one well and domestic bottles on Tuesdays and $2.50 pitchers on Thursdays. And despite its modest dance floor, the club always manages to get booties moving, with a little help from the turntable stylings of veteran DJ Domenica, who spins everything from hip-hop to electro-dance mash-ups. There's also karaoke on Thursdays and the occasional speed-dating event. The drink specials are good for those, too.
|Zgirl Club pool table|
There were 2 pool tables. And that room was pretty well ventilated. Though it could have just been because there weren't any smokers in it. They were at the bar. It looks like the walls of the bar were recently re-done. They look nice. And... um..... There was a dance floor - not that anyone was on it. And um....
Ok, screw the Ms. Nice review. This place strove to be a dive bar but never made it that far. There are two rooms and they look like 2 completely different bars. And neither one is happening. The bar is small and feels smoky - even w/ just 5 people in the place and only like 3 of them smoking. NOT a good sign. The drink was super strong - but didn't even taste good. When even the alcohol doesn't taste good, you know you've got a problem.
And despite a few outliers here and there, the same general opinion was evident in October 2011 (also a one-star review):
The owners of this bar need a serious reality check. This is a divey bar in Central Phoenix, not some swanky Scottsdale club. They took out the pool table and replaced it with a flat screen tv and couches that probably would do better in my mom's house...oh right, and the "art" they picked up at Big Lots (hung on the wall with caution tape around it hahahaha) is priceless.
The reaction over at GayCities was slightly more upbeat. Here's the official review:
Z Girl Club
Formerly: Misty's, Desert Rose
Here we see that the customer ratings were pretty positive between December 2006 and June 2008. Here's a sample of comments:
Makes me wonder if these were "swinger" types who were bothering lesbians for a threesome. Wouldn't be surprised....
A couple of websites report that his place is closed, but no date is provided.
