If you're itching to spend Sunday afternoon and evening going hard at one of El Hefe's signature 4-2-10 ragers, you're gonna have to hold off or party elsewhere, at least for the next six weeks.

Currently, El Hefe is el cerrado from now until early November as the day-drinking spot, nightlife haven, and "super macho taqueria" is being completely renovated from top to bottom. It's been described by one El Hefe employee as a "complete overhaul" that will give the place an entirely new appearance and decor.

As such, the Saddlebag Trail spot, which first opened in 2011, has been stripped down to its cement walls and as workers have spent the last scrapped its former look (which was a mix of exposed wood and stylish Chicano-inspired artwork) in preparation for its new digs.

El Hefe isn't the first Scottsdale bar or club to undergo a major transformation within its first few years, nor will it be the last, as many clubs in the city's entertainment district have changed things up in order to stay fresh and current.

But even with all the changes taking place, we're willing to bet one thing will remain constant with El Hefe: its wild-ass parties and club events, including its popular 4-2-10 Sundays and Weekends Start Wednesdays affairs, that arguably are some the rowdiest in Scottsdale.

True to Hefe's over-the-top nature, the staff threw one giant bash (dubbed the "Champagne Kill Room") the day before it shut down for the renovation on September 15 that involved plastic sheets being draped everywhere and partiers spraying the place with a massive maelstrom of bubbly a la Steve Aoki.

Good thing no one had to worry about the cleanup.
