Happy Hour: Sunday - Wednesday: 3:00pm - 6:00pm

Hotel Valley Ho’s restaurant, ZuZu offers colorful cocktails that are to-die-for. This little restaurant personifies what we love about Arizona; the rich sense of history, warm hospitality, and all its gentle reminders that we should never take ourselves too seriously. We recommend ordering the cucumber mule!

Live Music 7 days a week

Scottsdale’s staple dive bar, you can’t come to the Wild West and not spend a night at this saloon. Celebrities like Clint Eastwood, John Wayne, Vince Vaughn, and Jennifer Anniston have walked through these doors (pssst… we heard Post Malone likes to come here after his concerts). Come to the oldest bar in town and take in the Old West décor and live country music at this small Scottsdale bar.
