Top Spots to Spend a Friday Evening in Scottsdale

We know that you'll want to spend date night enjoying a romantic dinner in the Kitchen West Restaurant at The Scottsdale at Resort McCormick Ranch followed by cocktails at our Bar Six40, but there are plenty of places in Scottsdale where you might want to kick off the weekend. After a day spent at the best spa in Scottsdale, our Friday night choices are almost endless. A few of our top picks are below:

Move to the Beat

Jazz and blues aficionados will adore the atmosphere and the live music at the Kazimierz World Wine Bar on East Stetson Drive in Downtown Scottsdale. The "Kazbar" (as the locals call it) is ranked number one in the city for live music, and it's won countless awards from Wine Spectator for its vast wine selections that include more than 3,200 labels. If you prefer something a little more cowboy and low key, head over to the Rusty Spur on East Main Street. The weekends here feature live music, a laid-back atmosphere and all the cold beer you need. It's a traditional country saloon done Scottsdale-style. 

Dance the Night Away

Don't miss Maya Day + Nightclub this Friday night. Located on East Indian Plaza, it's the place to rock the dance floor. Some of the city's best DJs are usually in the booth, including Steve Aoki and Calvin Harris. The crowd here is on the younger side, but you're only as old as you feel, right? If you're part of the over-30 crowd, consider a turn on the dance floor at The Casablanca Lounge on East Stetson, El Hefe on North Saddlebag or Rogue Bar on North Scottsdale Road.

Laugh It Off

Enjoy some of the country's top comedians at the Scottsdale Comedy Spot Comedy Club. It's modeled after the traditional comedy venues you'll find in places such as New York City and Chicago, only it's got a Scottsdale feel to it. Laugh the night away with the likes of Keith Nelson, Marcos Romero and Dwayne Perkins. For a change of pace, the Scottsdale Laugh Factory on East Shea Boulevard and Stand Up Scottsdale on North Scottsdale Road feature some of Arizona's best. 

The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch is ideally located in the center of the best Scottsdale nightlife. Contact us today to book your stay, pampering treatment at the best spa in Scottsdale and make reservations for a romantic night out right on the resort property at Kitchen West.
