When the sky turns from sun to stars, there’s no shortage of things to do in Phoenix, whether it’s doubling down at the blackjack table or getting glammed up for a nightclub.

You don't need to leave the Valley for the glitz, glamour and gaming of Vegas.

Bars, lounges and clubs are densely located in Old Town Scottsdale, which serve both an upscale and casual crowd.

  • Head to Kazimierz Wine Bar, seek out the hidden entrance, and relax with a glass of red or white.
  • If you want a club scene during the day or night, visit Maya Day + Nightclub.
  • Want to do everything? You can hit all these places – and more – because they’re within walking distance of each other.

Central Phoenix is where the locals play after work, and where visitors go for the top-notch spots in the area.

  • The Vig is a bar, bocce ball court, and overall hip hangout with live music all rolled up in one.
  • The Merc Bar is a swanky lounge known for their dark rooms, drinks and DJs.
  • The Yard complex houses Barrio Urbano, Little Cleo's Seafood Legend and Culinary Dropout, the latter of which brings a backyard barbecue atmosphere to their patio with table tennis, shuffleboard and bag toss games.

Hop on the Valley Metro light rail and head to the heart of the city in Downtown Phoenix.

Head to Tempe for nightlife for the young - and young at heart.

  • The vibrant street scene of Mill Avenue is adjacent to the Arizona State University campus, and along the brick street you’ll find bars, shops, restaurants and clubs.
  • Rula Bula brings the spirit of Ireland to the heart of the desert with Irish food, entertainment and, of course, pints of Guinness.
  • Discover new brews at World of Beer and their circulating rotation of hundreds of beers from across the globe.
  • If fine art is your fancy, the Gammage Auditorium at ASU is an architectural wonder that hosts Broadway shows, musicals and plays

Rock, pop, jazz, blues, country and more: When you’re looking to cut a rug, rock out, or just kick back to a mellow groove, there's a live music venue in Phoenix for you.
