Entertainment and night life in Scottsdale Arizona

When the sun sets over the Sonoran Desert, and the giant saguaro cactuses are silhouetted against the painted sky, things really begin to heat up in Scottsdale! Don’t let this town’s unassuming “howdy ma’am” facade fool you – the sidewalks do not roll up at sundown!

Check out these great nightspots:


Two clubs in one, joined by a glass catwalk. A classy cigar bar, a pulsing dance club, and a restaurant that serves exotic dishes. This place is ultra-modern and is always filled with lots of hotties.

Discovery Lounge

A very popular upscale cigar and cocktail bar, complete with live piano music. Relax in front of one of the outdoor fireplaces and enjoy the spectacular views of the boulders and waterfall.


A truly amazing place, e4’s multi-million-dollar building houses four separate areas – the open air terrace, the earth lounge for dining and entertainment, and the liquid and fire rooms for high-energy dancing. Super glitzy!

Dos Gringos

If you’re looking for something a little more casual, Dos Gringos is the place! In Old Town, this cantina has a rooftop patio and two beautiful terraces for dining, drinking, and just hanging out. The jukebox is loaded with popular tunes, and the menu offers lots of tasty Mexican dishes. Patrons love their “reverse happy hour;” the later it gets, the cheaper the drinks!

Jackrabbit Supper Club

One of the most popular night spots in Scottsdale. Dining, live music, and live shows every hour. A favorite haunt of celebrities, you never know who might spot here!

Arizona Broadway Theatre

Gourmet dining and Tony Award-winning musicals. The auditorium is posh – I’m talking crystal, china, and linen! And you’ll have a wonderful view of the stage, no matter where you’re seated. Everything here, including the service, is first class all the way.

Handlebar J Restaurant and Saloon

Pull on your boots and jeans and mosey on over to this fun western saloon. Free dance lessons, live music, and delicious steaks, ribs, and burgers keep the cowpokes happy! Kids welcome, too.

Farrelli’s Cinema Supper Club

See the latest box office hit and have a meal at the same time. I’m not talking popcorn and milk duds – I mean burgers, steaks, pasta, seafood, and dessert! And you’ll sit at a nice, comfy table, too. There’s even a full bar! Kids are welcome, so this is a great activity for families.

Try Ponderosa Stables for something really unique, how about a night ride on horseback to a great steakhouse? Imagine trekking through the starlit desert on your surefooted steed, then being rewarded with a nice juicy cut of beef. Or what about a cookout ride, or a hay ride for the kids? This is a totally unforgettable family adventure.

Another exciting experience is the Night Storm Adventure, taking a hummer into the dark desert. You’ll have access to the latest state-of-the-art night vision equipment available to view nocturnal species like pumas, bobcats, scorpions, and lots of other critters. Kids will love it, too.
