Spooky season is here, folks! And Scottsdale is ready to deliver a weekend of laughs, jump scares, and good old-fashioned Halloween fun.
Scottsdale is one of the country’s best cities to celebrate Halloween – no tricks, only treats. Here’s why:
- The warm weather means there’s no need to put a dumb parka on over your cute Halloween costume – even into the night!
- The walkability of all the fin areas means once you make it to Old Town, you are in the heart of the fun and don’t need to worry about having a DD when you transition from hotspot to hotspot.
- Everyone in Old Town Scottsdale will get into the spirit so that you won’t feel silly strutting around the nightlife district in your most creative and dramatic costume.
Now that you know WHY you should be in Scottsdale during Halloween, here is everything you can do to celebrate the spooky season in Scottsdale!

The Best Scottsdale Bars to Visit During Halloween
A classic start to any Scottsdale Halloween bar crawl, Boondocks will be packed with Halloween-goers all day and night. With enough outdoor space to navigate even the bulkiest of costumes, it’s a great spot to peep at some wild outfits and chat with ghosts, devils, kittens and oh-so-much more.
Leave any apprehension at home – Pattie’s casual-yet-rowdy atmosphere is the perfect place to roll up in a wild Halloween costume confidently! The dollar-bill-covered dive bar is always full of fun and social people who embrace weird and love a great time. With ping-pong, pool and cheap drinks, it’s worth both starting and ending your Halloween bar crawl here.
The Hot Chick
If you like games, The Hot Chick is the place to stop. With basketball, corn hole and arcades, you can party with the games that start conversations and up the ante on the fun. There’s even a photo booth so you and your friends can grab snapshots of your costumes!
The Best Scottsdale Halloween Bar Crawl that covers them all
That age-old belief that Halloween is more fun on paper than in real life? Throw that idea out the window when you book a Halloween party bike bar crawl. With jamming to music, sipping drinks and pedaling through the nightlife with all of your friends, it is impossible to have a bad time.
On a Scottsdale Halloween bar crawl with Arizona Party Bikes, you get all of the best parts of a Halloween bar crawl without any of the speedbumps. Our bar partners are the life of the Halloween party and will let our party bikers in with no cover. You even get to skip the line waiting to get in, which is always extra long on Halloween weekend. You can feel like Halloween queens every time you roll up to a new bar stop!
The Best Scottsdale Clubs to Visit During Halloween
The Bottled Blonde is a classic Halloween club spot for great music, costume-watching and space to dance. With multiple levels to explore, you can even get a good view of partiers walking down the street in their best costumes. The Riot House is another excellent spot with an incredible party atmosphere and lots of open-air space to move and groove. And we can’t forget Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row!
If you can’t choose just one, luckily, all of these spots are a stone’s throw away from each other, along with several other great clubs in the nightlife district. You can easily party at them all!
Nurse a scary post-Halloween Hangover
The most crucial step of Halloween weekend? Surviving it. Luckily, Scottsdale has some tools up its sleeve when it comes to nursing a Halloween hangover.
Brunch spots like The Montauk, RnR and Farm + Craft make delicious dishes that will soak that booze up and have you feeling right as rain in no time.
Does your hangover demand more than bacon to disappear? Then, you can pull out the big guns by hiring Regenerate IV to bring all the hydration, nutrients and healing magic you need right to your couch.
