The Venue Scottsdale is a chameleon of a building, as ready to effortlessly host an elegant wedding reception as it is to present a comedy show or concert. The 29,000 square-foot, multi-level confines feature an indoor cobblestone courtyard and leaf-covered balconies, offering an outdoorsy ambience without the worry of inclement weather. Upstairs, a ballroom and a VIP lounge welcome private event goers, while a comedy club inspires knock-knock jokes with its own private entrance.
Last Chance Tavern and Grill celebrates microbreweries with beer on tap from Bell?s, Left Hand Brewing, Founders, and Angry Orchard. Guests can sample a variety of brews with a flight of beers, and take home their favorite in a growler. During lunchtime hours, chefs top burgers with olive mayo, jalape?os, smoked bacon, and housemade barbecue sauce. Other handhelds include piping-hot pizzas and philly cheese-steak sandwiches. The tavern also provides an array of entertainment, where guests can belt out their favorite tunes on karaoke nights, flex their brains during trivia contests, or relax during live music performances when they can finally take a break from humming all the time.
Customers at Hubs Inn share pizzas of their own design, with boursin alfredo sauce and basil pesto serving as alternatives to classic red sauce if desired. Other hearty menu favorites include house-made chili as well as the eatery’s signature dish: grilled steak laid atop three-cheese tortellini. Burgers are specially seasoned in-house and paired with hand-cut fries. Ambitious diners can take on the burger challenge, in which they attempt to eat a 3-pound burger and a 1-pound order of fries in under an hour without using their fifth stomach.
Streetlight glow cascades across the brick-paved road that lies in front of Ritz Koney Bar and Grille, where a bronze sign bearing the bar’s name glimmers above the door as guests filter in and out. That same door swings open until 3 a.m. on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, letting the vocal melodies of open-mic events and live entertainment briefly escape into the night. There’s never a cover charge to get in, leaving extra money in the pockets of patrons who stop by for a drink after work, on a date, or during a quest for the world’s crispest cocktail napkins.
Louie's Bar & Rocket Lounge BBQ are two adjacent hangouts with complementary moods and menus. Nightly drink specials and live music get the party going at Louie's, where bar goers can step out on the dance floor or cheer on their favorite sports team by playing catch with the HD televisions. Those with increasingly loud stomachs can commission a cornbread pulled-pork slider or other snack from Rocket Lounge, where chefs specialize in a one-of-a-kind genre of fusion barbecue. Unable to decide on a single style, Rocket cooks marry the spicy sweetness of Texan fare to the smokiness of Kansas City kitchens, yielding tender brisket, rib tips, and chopped beef. Savored by the bar at Louie's or in the checkered-tile interior of Rocket, each bite of barbecue satisfies while pairing well with frothy, cold brews.
Tip Top Deluxe Bar & Grill celebrates the home-cooked meals and rollicking roots music of the '50's and '60's with a hearty spread of American pub fare, ice-cold beers, and a schedule full of critically acclaimed musical acts. Visitors groove to the folk-rolk sounds and top-notch musicianship of performers?previous acts including Woody Pines, Pete Anderson, and Dave Alvin?as they sip cocktails and craft beers.
