Old Town Tavern
Scottsdale, AZ 85251
Phoenix New Times's Description
Coming across Old Town Tavern is like discovering a hidden clubhouse. Ensconced among a shopping complex, eateries, and apartments, an fireplace warms patrons hanging out amid the wood and brick expanse of the Tavern, and the sound of an acoustic duo playing songs by The Who greets the ears. Climb the stairs to the crow's nest and you'll get a lush view of the plaza's fountains and grass knoll, while inside you can check out the historical black-and-white photos of Scottsdale that line the walls. Shelves stocked with boutique beer bottles, whiskey, and assorted liquors stretch to the roof, and the bartender's cheery smile accompanies strong pours. A sign reading "Tact is for people who aren't witty enough to act sarcastic," hangs in the corner, but the sentiment conveyed by the homey atmosphere feels entirely genuine.
