Read about, or let someone tell you the story of the fire that destroyed much of Whiskey Row back in the early 1900's. The patrons at the Palace Bar pulled the huge oak bar out into the street so that they could continue drinking while the fire was burning much of the building.

Whiskey row is always a great time. From all their unique shops to all the fun bars. We have never had a bad time walking up and down the row shopping or bar hopping at night. There are some amazing bar tenders and really fun locals.

Many antique shops that need your time and attention........divide your time between the many restaurants and pubs and the antique shops, jewelry shops and you will have a full day and a full tummy by late afternoon.

I really enjoyed the food and beverages, especially the options. Several of the shops are "Sedona like" with great Art and local artists. The prices are lower than Sedona which isn't hard to do. The courthouse across the street is majestic and quite a gathering area.

Whiskey Row is a collection of bars, restaurants and art shops. Of all the attractions, Matt's Saloon is my favorite. I have been to many western bars in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona and there is not a one that compares to Matt's. The entertainment is outstanding and the bartenders have real personality. In the evening, usually on Friday, the... More

Worth it to park and walk. Lots of shops, great food, live music and tastings of wine, mead, and beer.

Same old stuff from shop to shop. Bar scene if you like that, but the restaurants were overpriced for the quality of food. Go for the atmosphere, not the quality of food. Too many panhandlers and vagrants wandering about asking for money.

We enjoyed taking our adult children to Whiskey Row during their visit to Prescott during Christmas. We pushed our way through the crowds and enjoyed the shops. Parking was not too bad as we parked FAR away and then walked (get my drift here folks!). But if you are in Prescott, you must enjoy this piece of history. If you... More

We were very surprised by the high quality and abundance of art, craft and jewelry shops within a couple of blocks. Most of the items were by local artisans and my wife would readily have bought several pieces until her better judgment a limited pocket book prevailed. We are not into bar hopping but there are also a lot of... More

Sampled about four saloons on a recent saturday night and they vary based on your age group. The Bird Cage is where you go if your over 40 and the three saloons right next to eachother (including one with balcony) were more youthful. The Meadery and Brewing Company are also good if your any age. Xmas decorations still up in... More
