Sometimes you just want to get away. Finding a place that is relaxing and quiet is not always easy. While nature is only a short drive from us in our beautiful mountain community it is not always what we are looking for. Sometimes you just want a little watering hole with a few friendly faces and service with a smile. Not completely off the map but hidden enough to be your own. Here are a few places in Globe-Miami that could provide just enough without being too much.
Abell Liquor is just off Highway 60 on the west end of Globe. The inside is quaint and commonly filled with good ol’ boys talking about their latest golf game or possibly a deal they struck in buying their new 4×4. The inside bar has a few stools and the outside patio is tucked away nicely in its own space. Parking is mostly in the back under the shade trees. If you are looking for a quiet place to have a drink this would be ideal.
The Tap Room
Another great place to get a quiet drink in Globe is the Tap Room. The Tap Room is also located just off Highway 60 on the west end of Globe. The building itself looks small from the highway but as you enter you discover there is more too it than you would think possible. The owner and operator of the bar , Stella Burgett, runs each shift on her own and is quite a pleasure to hold a conversation with. The bar is open from 2pm to 8pm on weekdays and Noon to 9pm on weekends. Wednesday is $1.50 can days and happy hour is from 4-7pm. The real deal at this bar, heck in the whole town, is the $1.50 draft beers.
Farley’s Pub has only been open for a few years now. It is located on Broad Street in Downtown Globe where “Under the Palms” used to be. The owners of the bar, Lisa and Eileen, opened the bar to provide the town with more of a selection of craft beers in the old Irish pub style. The bar is named after one of there beloved pet dogs, Farley. You can sometimes catch musicians playing their acoustic guitars on the patio or inside for an open mic. While your there, make sure to check out the giant Jinga game, it is most enjoyable.
Wild Horses Wednesdays
Stephen and Zenada will be setting up their music shop with Wild Horses Saloon for some mid-week madness on Wild Wednesdays. The music will start about 5pm and go until 8 or later. Happy hour ends at 6pm so get there early for drink specials. The owner’s, Roxi and Bill, are really working hard to make this a destination stop for locals and travelers alike. Keep your eye out for events at the Wild Horses Saloon such as the Copper City Comedy Tour hosted by Comedy on Fire out of Phoenix as well as many musicians who travel through to play their music. This bar also boasts the coldest beer in town and that is something worth saying in this dessert heat.
