Bars, Live Music, Best of Scottsdale's Old Town, South Scottsdale's Best Nightlife: This casual, relaxed, C&W spot attracts a loyal following of locals and out-of-towners with live music most afternoons and evenings. Regional and local acts perform primarily country tunes with a little rockabilly and blues thrown into the mix. Peanut shells crunching underfoot and a collection of dollar bills tacked to the wooden walls are accurate indicators of the completely laid-back atmosphere of the Scottsdale favorite. Check out the renovated vault of this one-time bank; liquor, not cash, is now carefully guarded within. As one of the oldest bars in Scottsdale, this local institution has seen its share of celebrity visitors, including Clint Eastwood and Vince Vaughn.
