Venue Scottsdale

7117 E. 3rd Ave. Scottsdale, AZ 85251 | Central Scottsdale | 480-945-5150

Location Description:

Since the Venue hosts a torrent of local and national music acts, the vibe at this Old Town concert hall changes with whoever's taking to its ample stage, adapting its ambiance to fit a variety of styles. One night, a local rock band like Digital Summer might blow out the joint with its melodic sound, and the next, hip-hop legends like Chamillionaire or Rakim might smoke the mic with their furious styles. The billiards area houses three championship-size pool tables, and the balcony overlooking the courtyard functions as a VIP area, complete with a private big-screen TV and fireplace.
