Jade Bar in Scottsdale
If you’re looking to get out of your vacation home for a night on the town, look no further than Jade Bar in Scottsdale at Sanctuary Camelback Resort and Spa. The word swanky describes it perfectly. The bar’s namesake is its beautiful jade onyx drink rail.
A Scenic Spot to Drink
Beyond the drink rail, perhaps the best feature of Jade Bar is its floor to ceiling windows. Looking through them as you sip your vodka martini, you can gaze at the whole of Paradise Valley and Camelback Mountain. On Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, there is live jazz, pop, and R&B. Check the website to view who is playing when. You can also enjoy the music while you sit around the fireplace on the outdoor patio.
The drinks and food at Jade Bar aren’t priced for their quality. You can get an excellent cocktail for less than $10 and beef sliders for $2. The bar hosts a cocktail hour called “The Pour” every day between 4 and 6 p.m. A select menu of wines and upscale cocktails are available during the Pour—think cantaloupe martinis and an Old Fashioned. The Pour always include one specialty cocktail created by the bar’s mixologist.
Sundays are special, too. “Sundays in Paradise” includes live music on the outdoor patio, 50% off bottles of wine between 1 and 5 p.m., and $7 specialty cocktails. Between 1 and 4 p.m. on Sundays, the bar offers Mixology 101, a class that offers tastes of cocktails, lively conversation about the art of mixology, and instruction from mixologists themselves. Each class is $40, and students get 15% off any food order at Jade Bar in Scottsdale for taking the class. Private classes also are available and have to be reserved.
