Concierge.com's insider take:
Old Town Scottsdale, just south of Camelback and Scottsdale roads, was once the city's epicenter of huge techno nightclubs. For the most part, those places have made way for a newer breed of nightlife venue, geared to revelers in their late twenties to mid-thirties who want to dance—but not necessarily on a smoke 'n' laser dance floor. Mabel's on Main is the sexiest bar on the scene, with a vibe that strives for Mad Men cool while taking design inspiration from old-timey speakeasies. Cocktail devotees should go on a Tuesday night, when owner Aaron May mans the bar. If you can stump his mental encyclopedia of libations, your drink is on the house. Looking for something a little less complicated? At the Coyote Ugly–look-alike Shotgun Betty's, dancers in Daisy Dukes take to the poles and platforms to the accompaniment of classic rock tunes. If Dirty Harry wanted to wet his whistle, he'd do it at Revolver Lounge, modeled after an Old West saloon (distressed leather, beat-up wood). But he'd be sure to down a Jack or two early, before the DJ sets up and the vodka bottle service crowd floods in after 10 pm.—David Tyda
