The Mint's Grand Opening Night

1 of 20
The Mint is part restaurant, part lounge, and all swanky. The newest Scottsdale nightspot made its debut with a grand opening gala on Wednesday, May 25. Boasting design features like an original vault door (a holdover from the building's past as a bank), a 30-foot bar in the main room, and a specialty champagne bar in the co-ed bathroom (for real). The Mint comes from the mind of Dean Solver, the same restaurateur who brought Sandbar and RnR to Arizona. The spot's opening featured DJ Scene, who's performed with everyone from Nas to Sir Mix-A-Lot and brought his signature hip-hop mixes to the party.
