PHOENIX — The ride share company Lyft has named six of the most visited locations around the Phoenix area and broke them into different categories ranging from food, drinks, schools, and entertainment.

This year was the third in a row that the company issued out their very own ‘Lyftie’ awards, but just the second year that Phoenix was included as a participant city. Lyft began its ride sharing service in the Valley back in 2013.

Last year, only five awards were issued to Phoenix area companies. This year, the service added a sixth award, the most visited university.

All of the awarded categories and winners are listed below.

Most-visited bar: El Hefe in Scottsdale
