10 Nightlife Destinations For a Memorable Night in Old Town Scottsdale



Take a walk in Old Town Scottsdale after the sun has gone down and you'll find a city that comes alive with sidewalk cafes, wine bars, gastropubs, dance clubs, and bars and lounges – especially on the weekends. 

In the heart of Old Town, check out the retro-swank lobby of The Beverly, formerly Mabel's On Main. This mid-century hot spot used to be one of the city's favorite dive bars, but after a makeover, The Beverly is now a vintage-flavored gem that appeals to the young and hip from all walks of life. Of course, Old Town Scottsdale is well known for its historic Western flavor.

Feel the history and enjoy a stiff drink at the Rusty Spur Saloon, one of the oldest bars in Old Town Scottsdale, and a good spot if you want to channel Old Town's historic Western vibe. 

For a hand-crafted cocktail in a quirky and sophisticated setting, head to AZ88, where the martinis are stiff and drinks are served until 1:30 a.m.

For a Vegas-style club experience in Old Town, check out Maya Day + Night Club, where bottle service is nearly always an option.
