Where to Celebrate on Election Night in Phoenix

Election fever is crawling everywhere. In less than three weeks we will know who will occupy the oval office. Don't forget to vote on November 8th and then get ready for an evening of revelry and celebrations. With such a polarizing climate, many will rejoice at the end of election season - why not attend a watching party where you can bond with others? Here are places where you can celebrate election night in Phoenix:

DeSoto Central Market
Try a casual hangout where you can discuss live results as they unfold. While you are waiting to see who gets the win, play some trivia with your friends, have a bite to eat, and down a few beers. It is a large space where there is a plenty of room to roam and to also support the economy by eating local foods.

East Valley Democrats Headquarters
Why watch the debate alone when you can see it with people who support your candidate? You don't have to do it on an empty stomach. Food trucks will line up to keep your hunger at bay while you anticipate the results.

Arizona Republican Party Headquarters
Pay close attention to every detail of how the election results unfold. Gather at one place and one time to determine who will prevail. If you voted Republican then this is the place to celebrate with your like-minded peers.

Salty Senorita
When the polls close at 7 p.m., the party begins at Salty Senorita. There will be plenty of drinks, fun food and a chance to commiserate with your fellow voters. Join revelers inside or outside on the patio. If you're feeling adventurous, you can celebrate by drinking a margarita flight.
