JEROME - PLENTY OF BARS AND WINE TASTING
This is maybe one of the best reasons to come to Jerome Arizona. You can hang out in one of the cool wine tasting rooms, listen to live music and pound down a few beers at the Spirit Room or Wicked City or Just chill out, play a little pool at Paul & Jerry's. There are literally five or six places you can get an adult beverage relax and take in all that is Jerome - and trust me that's a lot.
Wicked City Brew is new to town but the ledgend of Wicked City is definately not! More than 100 years ago this was the wild west at it's finest; Newspapers and magazines all agreed Jerome AZ was the worst. Today this bar pays tribute to that history.
Just outside you will find a historic plaque describing how Jerome got it's name as the "Wickedest City in the West". Inside you will find an elegantly decorated bar with paintings from local artists, historic pictures of Jerome AZ and awesome comfortable seating.

If the Haunted Hamburber is a must for the foodies, then the Spirit Room is an absolute must for the anyone that likes to tip a few at the local tavern. This location has become icon and famous with all who love to party.

This is probably the best wine tasting room in all of Jerome. So, if you like wine you need to make a stop off here. As you enter, you are treated to plush chairs and couches to relax and enjoy many glasses of wine.
But you will almost immediately notice that these guys are serious about great wine. The owner Maynard, takes great pride in producing the Verde Valley's finest wines. So stop in and find out why this outfit keeps on winning awards and metals.

This place could not be further from the wine tasting set you might find at Caduceus, but I love this place. You will too if you go in, take a seat, and get to know the place. This is a old school gin joint and definately worth a stop off..
In fact, it is the oldest family run bar in the entire state of Arizona. In addition to getting a drink here you can play a game of pool on any of the bar's three tables. Be aware though, many local residents take the game seriously and will give anyone a run for their money.

Passion Cellars is located in the Flatiron building at the south east end of town. It is easy to miss as it is discretely tucked away under the Flatirons Cafe on Hull Street. But once you get there, it is a comfortable place to take a break from your sight seeing.
Inside you will find plush chairs, kinda like your living room, so be ready to relax and enjoy the wine. But if standing is more your style, they have a nice bar too.

Sitting at the end of Hull Street and " kitty corner" from Bobby D's English Kitchen is the Jerome Winery. This winery is situated in an incredible building offering fantastic views of the Verde Valley. Here you can sit back and look out accross a seemingly endless landscape while you sip your wine.
You will find the staff incredibly friendly and they can help you make a good choice to fit you delicate pallet. Once your selection has been made, sit back and enjoy one of the best views to be found anywhere.

ECHO CANYON WINERY
Perhaps the smallest of the wine tasting rooms is the Echo Canyon winery. It is located directly under the Flatirons Cafe and has a small but cozy tasting room.
Originally, Echo Canyon winery was one of the first vineyards in the region. The grapes are grown along the banks of Oak Creek, off Page Springs road in Cornville.
THERE IS EVEN MORE TO DO
So if you run out of places, you can always pull up a bar stool at the Mile High Grill or get a tasty Nimbus Blonde at Bobby D's. If your tastes run a bit more fancy, make the treck up the hill to the Asylum Restaurant for a drink on the patio. It's noting short of a stunning view.
