For more than 40 years, Greasewood Flat in Scottsdale has attracted a diverse crowd of cowboys, bikers, and tourists looking to get a taste of the Old West.
Sadly, at the end of the month, the restaurant and bar at 27375 North Alma School Parkway will close its doors for good.
The bar and restaurant, known for its burgers, will stay open until March 31. Until that time, you can swing by for live music, including a four-day 40th-anniversary party that runs through Sunday, March 29.
You can view the schedule of events on the Greasewood Flat Facebook.
According to the bar's website, Doc Cavalliere bought the 45 acres of land on which Greasewood Flat sits in 1955. He originally opened the spot as a hideaway for him and his friends. Last year, the property was sold in probate court for $8 million.
If you want to get a piece of Greasewood Flat's history for yourself, mark your calendar for April 11. Many of the restaurant's antiques and decorative items -- including wagons, tractors, and even a 1940s Ford pickup -- will be up for auction though SAM Auctions both online and in person.
