If you’re the type of person to check the FBI’s most wanted list on your morning commute while listening to the latest episode of Crime Junkie, you should have a drink at Valley Bar. It’s inspired by Phoenix murderer Winnie Ruth Judd and there’s a shadow art installation with hanging figurines that depicts scenes from her infamous trial. Valley Bar doubles as a venue for weekly events that include everything from comedy shows to concerts to film screenings, so come for a game of pool, a performance, or to drink cocktails while learning a little local history.
