Opening/Closing

New Scottsdale Nightclub Livewire Opens on December 27

After darkness falls every weekend night in Scottsdale, the city's entertainment district and its many bars and club pulsate with a cacophony of beats, thumps, and the lively thrum of happy chatter. Come daytime, however, its replaced with a nonstop thrum of pounding, grinding, and a flurry of beeps from heavy equipment in motion.

Construction is taking place seemingly everywhere in the area as there's a major drive going on right now in Scottsdale's nightlife scene. And much of it is in preparation for the two big party occasions on the horizon: New Year's Eve and the Super Bowl week.

Over the past year, one of the major projects in progress has been the construction of Livewire, the 11,000-square-foot live music and entertainment venue along Indian Plaza that will open on Saturday, December 27, will host concerts, comedy shows, and other performances.
