We’re a bike-friendly American beer garden with a rotating selection of 48 beers including Local, European & American craft beers; all hand-selected by our resident “beer geek”, Nick Nitz. We stock a full bar, eight wines by the glass and offer award-winning beer cocktails.

Savor cooked-to-order local sausages, burgers, salads, sandwiches, pretzels, hand-cut fries, and vegetarian fare at our huge indoor/outdoor bar -- or grab a table on our expansive 2,000 square foot “City Park” patio (with convenient bike hooks where patrons can stash their rides) featuring lighted trees, park benches, street lamps, and a comfy fire pit.

Did you know that wood used in our exterior and interior is actually reclaimed from an historic barn in the Midwest? It’s true! An entire barn was dismantled and shipped to Arizona to grace our loving walls, bar and exterior! We’re probably one of the only Tempe restaurants with that much Midwestern wood.

Ride your bike on over to The Handlebar Tempe to enjoy craft beers and local sausages in our modern American beer garden. Happy Hour Daily from 3pm – 6:30pm and our kitchen’s open late!
