I live near City North and have been to Blue a few times now. I will definitely say that happy hour is the better time to go. The crowd is more diverse and more of the professionals relaxing after work. The food is pretty good and their signature "Blue" Martini is fun. Fridays and Saturdays are a little different. Crowded with rhinestone-clad cougars on the prowl and over-cologned men in matching striped button up shirts. If you have not gone, it is worth a stop just to people watch.

Bar none, the BEST place in Phoenix to get a burger. I took a friend here for lunch today (Ada G.) and we split the Delux Burger (medium rare) and the sweet potato fries and each had a hard cider. I've been telling her how good it is and she's been wanting to see for her self and she wasn't disappointed. The fries always come out first in their cute little grocery cart and we each get our own dipping sauces (ketchup and some kind of chipotle aioli?). Once we gorged ourselves on those, our burger came (we split, how else can we be expected to keep our girlish figures?) and it was on to the second course. The patty is always the perfect medium rareness. The juice from the meat melds with the Gruyere and blue cheeses and makes the perfect sauce with the caramelized onions. It's topped with arugula and is served on a baguette. When you get this, don't change a thing. It's perfect as it. It would be a travesty to play god and change these beautiful flavors. I love this burger. I could eat another one now. If I could write poetry I would write it a poem, but I can't so I'll just stop now. And maybe plan my next visit.

Ok I am a little biased here since I dj here. As far as clubs go I think this is by far the best venue in the city - best dancefloor/layout and sound system. I am 100% straight and I always have a blast here even when i am there not djing. Pure might have the strongest drinks I have ever had in any spot in the city. Its definitely a late night spot - dead until at least 1:30. By 2am the place is jammed packed. I have definitely seen some crazy stuff go down here - but whatever its late night club - not a church so deal with it.
