Dierks has more of a bar vibe than a club vibe. But, this isn't a true 'country' bar. It definitely is modern with some country aspects. That being said, they occasionally have some great country artists come through! If you're looking for a country vibe but still want that club feel, this is the perfect place.

We love this brunch spot because of how unique it is. This mexican-asian fusion spot is truly something you can't describe unless you eat there. It does come with a price tag of $30/person for bottomless brunch without alcohol. We highly recommend getting their bottomless mimosas if you do go! They come in multiple fresh flavors. Expect to spend about $50/person after taxes for the food and alcohol. It's definitely worth it if you are looking for a one-of-a-kind brunch spot.

Happy Hour
Scottsdale has tons of great Happy Hour spots. Here are our favorites close by.
This restaurant is pretty pricy normally. Happy hour pricing makes it totally affordable! We highly recommend the huckleberry margaritas, pork wings, green chili pork, and big ass burger. Their happy hour is set up uniquely in that it's first-come-first-served. There is no line to wait in. You just snatch a table in the happy hour section. We recommend getting there a little early to make sure you get a table.

This is our go-to for happy hour! $5 pitchers of beer (about 2 pints) and glasses of wine before 5:00 pm. All day. Every day. We recommend splitting the bruschetta boards with your group. We either do 1 board for two people or 1 board per person if we're feeling really hungry!

Sweet Treats
Here's where to go nearby when you just have that sweet tooth you can't stop!
Sugar Bowl is part of the history of Old Town Scottsdale. This ice cream shop is very cute and very pink. They have a lot of different sundae options. Mike sticks with the classic chocolate. I prefer the Dusty Road or Brownie Buster. They do have food there, but nobody I know has ever actually eaten there. It's the perfect stop after a meal down in Old Town.
