While Scottsdale has not yet achieved the party reputation of New York or L.A., it’s fair to say the city lays claim over one of the most vibrant and busy nightlife scenes in the West.
When the desert sun sets over the Valley, Scottsdale’s more than 80 wine bars, clubs, and lounges come to life, offering plenty of places to practice your cowboy two-step, party like a rock star, or simply relax with friends. Whether you come to dance, drink, or both, Scottsdale offers enough late-night distractions to keep you going until dawn.
On any given night in Scottsdale, chances are you will see a line forming outside of The Mint, one of the city’s swankier nightclubs, and a perennial favorite with people-watchers.
Catch some of the hottest EDM, hip hop and rock artists at Livewire, a massive live music venue with state-of-the-art sound and a huge dance floor.
For vintage style, The Beverly brings retro cool back to Scottsdale with craft cocktails, comfy booths and a hip crowd.
The Goodwood Tavern is a newcomer to the Old Town Scottsdale nightlife scene, but the bar has already become a destination for those looking for a classy place to grab a nightcap and enjoy dinner.
Finally, if dive bar glam is more your style, be sure to check out Rogue Bar, featuring an eclectic line-up of live acts and dance nights.
