Scottsdale is a nightlife kind of town. When the sun sets over the desert hills, the city's hip constellation of dance clubs and live music venues come alive.
If you're goal is to relax with friends on one of the city's best outdoor patios, head on over to the Old Town Tavern in downtown. It's a great place to enjoy a drink and listen to live music in a relaxed setting.
Country music lovers also won't want to miss the Rusty Spur Saloon. It has the distinction of being the oldest saloon in town. Along with great food and drinks, you can count on a toe-tapping country band taking the stage every weekend.
For free dance lessons on Wednesday nights and live music every night of the week, Handlebar-J is the place to go.
If you're ready to rock the night away, try Pub Rock Live. This downtown Scottsdale destination can host up to 350 patrons and features weekly live music in a relaxed bar setting.
One of the city's biggest and most glamorous live music venues is Livewire, a vintage-styled live music venue with a state-of-the-art performance space.
