The Return of Mantis Claw at Kazimierz World Wine Bar

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. Wednesdays mark Mantis Claw at Kazimierz World Wine Bar. 

Kazimierz World Wine Bar's sleek and sexy lounge atmosphere hits another level when DJ Mantis Claw brings his skills and eclectic collection of vinyl records. 

Stop by any given Wednesday to get a taste of the DJ's tunes or to sample the Scottsdale bar's wide selection of wine. And don't be afraid to ask for a recommendation -- the Kazimierz crew knows their vino (and can also read the labels on the dim-lit shelves). 

Check out the latest Wednesday night here and a full rundown after the jump...

The Place: 7137 E. Stetson Dr., Scottsdale, AZ, 85251

The Time: Every Wednesday, 9 p.m. - 2 a.m.

The Cover: Nada. 

The Parking: It's in Old Town Scottsdale, so there's a fairly limited amount of street parking available. 

What we didn't love: Seriosuly, you can't read the menus because it's so dark. The employees actually carry around miniature flashlights to help you make your selection. 

Are we going back: Definitely.
