The Tempe San Felipe’s Cantina is located in the entertainment district of the Tempe Marketplace shopping and dining venue. Right across from the main stage, where you can see great live music, you can relax on the patio, enjoy a cerveza and a shrimp cocktail. This is a great venue for watching sports games on the many high definition TV screens. It’s also a pre and post game party spot for football and spring training. One of the best Happy Hour specials in the valley packs the house from 4pm-7pm Monday through Friday. At night do some dancing with live music and DJ’s. Coastal Mexican food with an attitude served up alongside a night life atmosphere keeps the customers returning for their much needed “Local Spring Break” here at San Felipe’s Cantina.

Back in the late ’70′s inspired by frequent trips to Rocky Point and San Felipe, Mexico for ‘Spring Breaks’ throughout the ASU and NAU college school year, the dream was born at a sandy beach camp amid pyramided cases of canned beer, barbequed Mexican shrimp, cheap tequila, tiny bikinis and some musically inclined friends with sand filled guitars.
