Five After-Hour Alternatives in Metro Phoenix
After-hours dance party at Scottsdale's Firehouse
1. Firehouse (Scottsdale)
The line outside this Old Town hot-spot doesn't get smaller past the hours of 2 a.m. ... it gets bigger, along with its party-animal instincts. During the weekends, the place stays open until 4 a.m. and offers munchies and music that are so totally conducive to burning off your Jägermeister buzz.
The Latin nightclub invites you to tango till 4 a.m. on weekends. Though it mostly caters to the LGBT crowd, there's still a significant amount of hetero clientele knowing how to spice things up until the sun comes up.
Housed in the spot that used to be E4 nightclub, this 18+ Scottsdale favorite keeps the energy drink party going until 4 a.m.. The four levels of themed-room goodness includes hookah, espresso bars, casino games and gogo dancers. And of course, Scottsdale Underage Heaven offers a free party bus service to ASU students during the weekends.
Yeah, there are plenty of places to see and be seen in Scottsdale (and apparently a couple passed 2 a.m..) but how bout a 24 hour pizza
joint lounge that kinda looks like one of the Old Town clubs it's surrounded by.
With a sound system bumpin' electronica, plush couches, and 'round the clock slices, consider this an "after-hours" pizza party at its finest.
5. The Firehouse (Downtown Phoenix)
Adding "the" and a Downtown Phoenix location isn't the only thing setting this Firehouse far apart from the other in our list. The downtown gallery space/ performance art venue is rumored to host occasional after-hours events which include flame throwing and other freaky circus shit.
We don't know a regular schedule behind the late-night affairs that are said to go on in the back area of this joint, but we're guessing it's because they'd like to keep it that way.
