Hotel Monte Vista

The Monte Vista Hotel is located in Downtown Flagstaff. Known for being haunted by many spirits over the years, the hotel is also known for its polished bar scene. Having two divergent settings to choose from, Rendezvous would be the first you’d run into.

Many people come to Rendezvous during the afternoon to sip on a nice warm boozy after hitting the slopes at Snowbowl. The most asked for being the Whiskey Chai created with Jameson Irish Whiskey, Tuaca Liqueur and Chai Latte. Served in a gigantic mug that not even I could finish before feeling warm all over (;

In the evening many people come to Monte Vista Hotel to enjoy the Pool Hall. Positioned across from Rendezvous it has 3 pool tables and arcade games.

Even better is what takes you downstairs to the original bar, Monte’s Cocktail Lounge. Not as much of a “lounge” as it is an entertainment room. A main-stage is set in the back, holding free live performances on Friday, Saturday and Wednesdays. Playing anything from local to touring bands, usually an alternative genre.

An area is set up for people who love to dance as well as high top tables and stools for those who like to listen. Across from the dance floor is yet another full bar. Serving 12 different beers on tap than Rendezvous and several Signature Cocktails. This is where you can order the one and only Monte Vista Mule. A combination of a “You Call It” Liqueur, Ginger Beer and a Splash of Lime.

Along with the hype here on the weekends, Monte’s Cocktail Lounge has many great events happening during the week. Happy Hour is 4-9pm daily and offers free Pool, $1 off Draft Beers and $3 off Wells. The Wells at Monte’s include Jim Beam Bourbon Whiskey, Seagrams Gin, Bacardi Rum, Sauza Tequila and Sky Vodka. Tuesdays and Thursdays are Karaoke nights.
