The Bachelor's Beat was a paid-circulation, tabloid-style weekly newspaper published in Phoenix, Arizona, United States. Its content centered on local events, bands and clubs. It also contained editorials and commentary critical of local politicians.

The paper started in 1964 (several years before the much larger New Times got their start). The Beat, as it is referred to, was initially distributed free in bars and restaurants. The newspaper's racks were distributed throughout the Phoenix metropolitan area. The newsrack price was 50 cents.

The newspaper's founder was Jerry Jay Evenson, author of the book Break The Rules And Win, Surviving AIDS and Other Disasters and When All Else Fails, R.T.D.D. (Read The Damn Directions)

The Bachelor's Beat is no longer published, and, its domain names are up for sale.[1]
