The Bride Tribe will never go hungry in this foodie paradise! Some of the country’s best restaurants proudly call Scottsdale, AZ home, which has also been named the nation's No. 2 “foodie” city. For instance, the sophisticated Cafe Monarch is ranked among the Top 25 best restaurants in America. This European-styled restaurant is located in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale. For bridal parties seeking a high-end dining experience, Marcellino, one of the finest Italian restaurants in the area, is also sure to delight refined palates.
On the other hand, if you are in the mood for a more chic, lively atmosphere, try Sumomaya, Steak 44, or Toca Madera. There is also Old Town Tortilla Factory and Diego Pops if you’re in the mood for some good old Mexican food!
Arizona is known for its breweries, so don’t forget to squeeze in a brewery tour or a beer flight during your girls’ trip! We recommend trying out the unique brews at Fate Brewing Company - their key lime pie is also a must-try!

The walkable neighborhoods of Scottsdale have given rise to a number of swanky clubs, bars, and chill lounges. If you and your crew enjoy the thrill of a spirited nightlife, you will never run out of high-energy locales to check out in Scottsdale on your night out. The Mint Ultralounge boasts a massive dance floor with an equally expansive patio for a brief escape. Down the street, you’ll find a lively strip of bars like Maya, Bottled Blonde, and Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row. For a quieter vibe to enjoy cocktails and good conversation, you won’t have to travel far to find dozens of posh lounges. Wine Girl is one of our favorite spots for a more low-key atmosphere.

If you want an outdoorsy bachelorette party, explore Camelback Mountain, head out for a desert ATV ride, or grab your polos to golf at one of the many courses in the area. Afterward, relax at one of Scottsdale’s finest spas. Out of 70 spas in Scottsdale, Hawaiian Experience Spa is ranked number one. The luxury spa boasts massage rooms, a facial room, a relaxing lounge, and a tiki bar. For an equally lavish spa that includes outdoor and indoor amenities, try the opulent Spa Anania.
Need retail therapy with your girls? Scottsdale Fashion Square is one of the most visited shopping centers in the country for good reason. The approximately two million square feet of upscale shops, restaurants, and movie theaters offer the perfect respite to escape the heat or unwind. Get ready for the big day by treating yourself to some lingerie or grabbing the perfect pair of shoes.

If you plan to have your bachelorette party in the winter or fall, Scottsdale’s weather can’t get any better. These months have the ideal weather for hiking, walking around town, and simply being outside. On the other hand, if you are planning your party in late spring or summer, Scottsdale is the perfect destination for floating down the Salt River and indoor activities (like shopping!).
