If you want to experience the best Arizona has to offer on the club front, head on over to hotspots such as Riot House, El Hefe, Dierks Bentley, and Dakota where you can enjoy great music and the best Scottsdale Bottle Service in the entire city. The best thing about the entertainment area is the fact that the establishments are situated so closely together, making it ideal for a bout of unadulterated club hopping.
Enjoy a relaxing drink
