-Mill Ave (college bars-packed as shit this weekend since everyone is graduating)
-Oldtown Scottsdale ($25,000 millionaires who dress like they're in the Jersey Shore)
-Downtown Phoenix (Barron waste land but my favorite underground house bar is there so I am biased.) Also, has Amsterdams (gay club, which I haven't been to yet either) that's pretty popular.
-Tempe Marketplace (pretty decent, it has plenty of things to do D&B, Movies, and lots of food spots)
-Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall (just visit it and you'll see)
-Salt River (I think it recently opened up again, I haven't been but I heard great stories about others going)
-You can actually catch First Fridays this Friday. It's in Downtown Phoenix (another event I've been meaning to go to.)
I've been here for about 5 years and I barely just found the fun spots for me. If you just go exploring through Scottsdale, Tempe, and a little of Downtown Phoenix you should have a good time. You're visiting, GO CRAY CRAY!!!
