Cocktail Carnival at Hotel Valley Ho, kicking off the 2017 Arizona Cocktail Week.
Arizona Cocktail Week is back and bigger than ever. Beginning with its signature Friday kickoff party, Cocktail Carnival, hundreds swarmed Old Town Scottsdale's Hotel Valley Ho and its poolside cabanas to sample spirits, cocktails, Jell-O shots, and more. This year, suites upstairs were rented out by brands like Tito's and Jack Daniel's, the latter of which decked themselves out in speakeasy/tiki bar stylings. With the Carnival winding down, some partiers were just getting started; they worked their way a few blocks over to Counter Intuitive for Monkey Shoulder Scotch's Official Cocktail Carnival After-Party.
