A wide selection of things to do at night from after work or class happy hour, a sports bar to watch the game, or an entire night on the town. Multi-floor dance clubs with live bands, concerts, bar and grills, wine bars, comedy clubs, upscale or hole-in-the-wall hood hangouts. The largest collection of nightlife in Tempe AZ is in the Mill Avenue District of Downtown, Tempe Marketplace, and the streets around Arizona State University.

Most of the nightlife spots serve food with late night dining. And you can always take a nice moonlit stroll around Tempe Town Lake. When the weather is nice, you will find plenty of places that feature outdoor patio seating. With convenient Metro Light Rail, you can get from downtown Phoenix to Downtown Tempe in about 25 minutes.

Taken from the Irish Gaelic language expression "rí rá agus ruaille buaille" it translates to "uproar and commotion" in the context of a celebratory and fun time. We phoneticized the expression into Rúla Búla to simplify pronunciation in English. We felt Rúla Búla was an appropriate selection for the upbeat, fun image the City of Tempe portrays. Particularly on Mill Avenue, which is often, open only to foot traffic during the many festivities that take place throughout the year.
