Arizona might be more famous for the Grand Canyon, the Monument Valley, and various other wonderful natural attractions, but it isn’t too far behind in the party scene either, and Scottsdale is right up there on that list of Arizona cities with a throbbing nightlife. So, without further delay, here are five awesome and happening nightclubs in Scottsdale you need to check out next time you are visiting the city.
Paris of Scottsdale
While there are no Eiffel Towers here, the décor of the club and the international electronic dance music (EDM) will remind you of the many European nightclubs you have probably seen on your visit to France and the nearby regions. However, there is also a South American influence in Paris of Scottsdale that just adds more to the club’s appeal.
Degree 270 has everything that one would expect from a typical nightclub in Scottsdale, such as live music, a dance floor and a great collection of vodka even, but people go to Degree 270 mainly for the awesome views which the club offers from the Talking Stick Resort’s 14th floor. Get comfortable with smooth jazz, while sipping on your drink and looking out the window at the majestic Camelback Mountain in the far distance.

If you had just enough time to visit one nightclub while in Scottsdale, let it be Riot House. Whether you are looking for Scottsdale Happy Hour offers, unique décor or a dance floor that’s alive with the latest beats, Riot House in Old Town will cater to all your needs and more. The South Beach theme alone is enough to set it apart from the slew of other nightclubs in the area that feel like copy-pasted versions of each other, but there’s so much more to match the theme and even complement it perfectly. The food and the drinks are plenty in option and they have specialized drinks and food on the menu, specially made for the club’s tropical theme. Spend a Saturday night here and leave after having the club’s special Sunday Brunch that is quite famous in the area as a treat for the taste buds.
Whiskey Row appeals more to those that are looking for a more relaxing and laid-back evening on the weekends, but make no mistake, the club does come alive with live music too at night. However, it is more of a place where you go to hang around with your friends and maybe even play some corn hole with them while you are at it!
El Hefe Super Macho Taqueria
In case you are a resident of Scottsdale, then you already know that El Hefe is one of the most famous and posh places in the city. It is a huge nightclub that is premium in both price and experience. Eclectic music are the dominant beats on most nights at El Hefe and in spite of the size of the place, it can get quite crowded on weekends. Don’t miss out on seeing the El Hefe girls either!
Visit just one of these places each night, or hop clubs until you are done for the night; the choice is yours, but whichever route you choose, these five won’t let you down.
