5 Best Places for Day Drinking in Scottsdale
Luster Kaboom

Coach House The dean of day-drinking dives, this half-century-old hub of debauchery is where you go to tipple with both hard-boozing townies and slumming 30K millionaires.

Los Olivos Mexican Patio For a taste of vintage Scottsdale, this Mexican restaurant is one of the best places to kick back for an afternoon of tequila sipping or knocking back a margarita or two.

Closing Soon Saloon Leave your pretensions at the door of this beer-and-a-shot hole in the wall.

Papago Brewing Co. This tavern services both beer snobs and casual drinkers.

The Lodge Chef Aaron May's pub resembles a cozy ski lodge where day-drinkers can while away the afternoon with a honey brown house ale or any of the 15 other brews available.
