Az 88

7353 E. Scottsdale Mall Scottsdale, AZ 85251 | Central Scottsdale | 480-994-5576

Location Description:

Trendy, neo-boho watering hole/cafe that pulses with energy, and remains one of the most reliable late-night dining spots in town. When the rest of Scottsdale is yawning and rolling up the sidewalks, AZ 88 is going strong like a stud bull on Viagra. God bless 'em. Edibles are mainly salads, burgers and sammies - nothing amazing, but there are some solid noshes to be had. For finger food, we dig the galettes, these little flatbread pizza thingees, and the Buffalo-style chicken salad with blue cheese and hot sauce goes well with a glass of Bass Ale. Check out the mirrored stalls in the restrooms: Guaranteed to trip you out.
