The Location.

Hosting IGNITE’s National HIV Testing Day Event for the 3rd year in a row, is one of the hottest clubs in Phoenix, Stacy’s @ Melrose. Located in the heart of the popular downtown Melrose District near the iconic curve on 7th Avenue, you’ll find a casual atmosphere, with an ambiance and charm of an old-world cathedral with the walls featuring local community artists’ works of art, great music and a hoppin’ dance floor.

Stacy’s is staffed with the friendliest employees to provide cheerful customer service and top-notch cocktails and many craft beers. And if you need a breather, visit the spacious patio fully furnished with a full-service bar under the stars.

The best little prick you’ll have all year!

HIV testing results in 20 minutes.

With one little prick on your finger and a small amount of blood, IGNITE’s Testing Team will get your test running while you go back out to enjoy the evening with friends. The test we use looks for the HIV Antigen and Antibody. Typically, one or the other is detectable 17-20 days after exposure. If you feel you may have been exposed to HIV in the last 2-3 weeks, you may need to be re-tested in order to receive a more definitive result.

After 20 minutes, an IGNITE Crew Member will find you to bring you back to the testing area to receive your confidential results. If your test is negative, the Testing Specialist will offer you tools and services to help you stay negative. If your test is positive, you won’t be alone. Your tester will work with you to ensure you’re linked to medical, financial, behavioral and support services to support you while you navigate through the next steps. Learn more about the Testing Process here.

* Note: Only Rapid HIV Testing will be offered at this event. For STI Testing, such as Gonorrhea, Chlamydia and Syphilis, visit Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS website for free STD Testing and Treatment.
