Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row has opened a new location in Tempe and they had their first rocking act and opening party on Sept. 24th. Many of you may be fans of their Scottsdale location, so you’ll love what the Riot Hospitality Group did with the Tempe location. Ryan Hibbert and Mike Troyan put a lot of heart and soul in this addition and we think you’ll love the new feel and the few tweaks they made. One of the bigger differences in locations is that the stage is located on the floor in the middle of all the action!
We love that they kept the indoor/outdoor feel with the grass on the ceiling, the wood throughout and the camo printed seats. Another new addition to this location is the back-porch style playground, where you can play games like corn hole while keeping cool and enjoying some brews. Did we mention that they have craft cocktails on tap now too! Speaking of drinks, let’s talk about the food. I know you know how great the music is there but I’m all about the eats.
The menu has been shaken up a little bit and I think you’ll find some old favorites and some new. The turkey pretzel melt is full of oven roasted turkey breast, melted white cheddar, hand cut slaw and thousand island mustard. The whiskey burger is a favorite among all of you, at least that’s what we’re told. We can tell why with that hearty burger topped with whiskey bbq sauce, honey roasted jalapenos (loved these), crisp bacon and that melty cheddar, I wanted to ask for seconds. Let’s not forget a side of them crispy fries to boot and possibly a Dierks’ Old Fashioned to wash it all down.
I also really liked the fried chicken breast with the white cheddar and green tomato cornmeal waffles drizzled with bacon honey and topped with pickled jalapenos. I’m a big fan of that spicy sweet combo and they do it right. You could pair it with a nice cold mason jar of Dierks’ Lemonade, Jack Daniel Whiskey, muddled raspberries, fresh lemon and sparkling water. We cannot and we must not ever forget about dessert. Especially when it has to do with bread, peaches and ice cream. That’s right, I’m talking about their peach bread pudding with grilled peaches, cinnamon custard and caramel topped with a nice scoop of bourbon vanilla ice cream. And now my foodie friends, I have given you a few more reasons to drop by the new Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row in Tempe. Go for the music, go for the drinks, go for the food, go for the fun or go for it all!
