Arizona's Best


A unique blend of luxurious and industrial, Dakota in Old Town Scottsdale offers something that many other bar and club venues do not: an impressive kitchen sending out menu items all day long. The 4,500-square foot bar and restaurant is styled like a California bistro, accented with ivy greenery and floor-to-ceiling glass windows that allow for the perfect view of Scottsdale’s lively district. An exceptionally sized patio wraps around the front of Dakota and is dotted with plush gray couches and fire pits. Dakota’s menu is a mashup of traditional bar choices and healthy fare, and one that caters to every Phoenician who breezes through their doors. Memorable options include the Reuben melt, baked macaroni and cheese and—for the health-conscious—the vegan brown rice bowl, a delectable medley of heirloom tomatoes, snow peas and carrots drizzled in a lemon vinaigrette. Guests who happen to be staying at the nearby W Scottsdale Hotel can charge their food orders to the room, which also includes purchases from Dakota’s own full-service coffee and espresso bar, Comoncy. Nights transform Dakota into the crème de la crème of nightclubs, with bottle service and VIP options, live performances and special weekend events. dakotabar.com.
