910 Live

910 N. McClintock Drive Tempe, AZ 85281 | Tempe | 480-966-0707

Location Description:

Way "back in the day" (specifically, from 1991 until 2002) this eclectic Tempe club functioned as a home base for the Valley's music scene. Back then it was called Boston's. Fast-forward to today and you'll discover that the place is still rocking, although the ramshackle decor has been ditched in favor of tasteful nudes and choreographed lighting. It's once again an epicenter of live music, however. Much like in its heyday, the joint is still a haven for live music. While the front portion functions as exotic club Elite Cabaret, the open-air portion in the back boasts a large outdoor stage that regularly hosts al fresco performances from band and musicians of the local and nationally touring variety and is ringed by posh cabanas for VIP types to catch the shows.
