Old Town Scottsdale

The city’s beating heart is Scottsdale’s Old Town. In 1888, it was here that U.S. Army Chaplain Winfield Scott planted his agricultural roots, and it was here that Scottsdale residents and industries thrived for decades. Old Town Scottsdale’s numerous walkable “districts” are now destinations for the city’s various businesses.

There are nearly 100 fantastic dining and nightlife opportunities, as well as popular shopping and lifestyle destinations.

In just one glance at Old Town Scottsdale, it’s easy to see why the city’s core is so special. An eclectic array of stores, bars, galleries, and nightclubs, as well as modern public art works and historic sites from the late 1880s, are nestled within nine walkable neighbourhoods. Old Town’s one-of-a-kind flair comes from its effortless mix of trendy modern services and Old West elegance, making it a must-see on every Scottsdale itinerary.

You will visit nine conveniently walkable districts with art galleries, stores, bars, museums, and nightclubs in a little more than one square mile.


After midnight, the district’s laid-back daytime vitality bursts, with star DJs, live bands, and master mixologists showcasing their skills at upscale nightclubs and bars. A swanky boutique bowling club with craft drinks and bottle service is also available.
