Live Music at Old Town Tavern

Looking for something to do this weekend? "Night Owl" is a quick guide to special nights at bars and clubs around town. We'll give you a few hints re: cover, dress code, music and atmosphere. Saturdays mark Live Music at Old Town Tavern. 

Old Town Tavern is a bar with many faces. The cozy and rather cramped interior of the bar has a pub feel. The upstairs area resembles a fort or treehouse. The outdoor patio/alley has a much more open and relaxed vibe, which is perfect for enjoying a bucket of beer and listening to bands such as Dirty Lingo on Saturday nights.

The Place: 7320 E. Scottsdale Mall, Scottsdale, AZ, 85251

The Time:

What we didn't love: The somewhat makeshift outdoor stage, which is just a section of the alley separated by a few plants and a dumpster. 

Would we go back? Free music and cheap beer? We think so.
