Old Town Scottsdale Restaurants
Old Town Scottsdale is South Scottsdale. There's a beautiful Canal running through, lots of shopping and places to be seen. There's the fashion district, the arts district, and the old west town. It's just perfect. Probably a 20 minute drive from our house with plenty of parking (roughly $15 on Uber or Lyft). Rent a scooter and have fun down there!
High class Mexican food. Margs are out of this world. Great outdoor seating. Definitely one of my faves! Also a location in Desert Ridge a little closer to our house, but I like this location better.

Wait, did you want a speakeasy-like place that's hidden? Ok, this is the place! We love cocktails and this place has some amazing craft cocktails. You have to go to the Whining Pig downstairs at Desert Ridge Shopping mall, then go around the corner down a hallway and it's hidden underground! This place is amazing and the atmosphere is unbeatable!
