El Santo Cantina y Mas - Closed

7301 E. Butherus Drive Scottsdale, AZ 85260 | North Scottsdale | 480-584-3801

Location Description:

When the weather’s hot almost year-round, adding a swimming pool to a bar makes perfect sense. That’s exactly what the proprietors of Geisha A Go Go and Spanish Fly thought when they opened El Santo Cantina y Mas in Scottsdale. The spot features a 2,800 sq. ft. pool, a plethora of chic VIP cabanas, a big waterfall, two separate bars, and waitresses sporting teeny-tiny bikinis. After all that splashing around, you’re sure to have a hunger than an ice cold beer can’t fix. Luckily the bar serves Baja-style street food, like tacos and quesadillas. Check it out on a lazy Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for some Sol Therapy with tasty brunch, bottomless mimosas, poolside beats, and of course more bikinis. If you can’t drown your sorrows on Sunday, perk yourself up from 3 to 7 p.m. every other day of the week for half-priced appetizers and two-for-one drinks.
