Life rule #1: A girl’s gotta eat.
While other bachelorette activities are cherries on top of the sundae of your bachelorette weekend, eating is the ice cream, chocolate sauce, and whipped cream. In other words, it is a must.
Good thing Scottsdale restaurants are up there with the best culinary experiences in the states! Our gorgeous city may be in the desert, but it is a destination spot for foodies looking for the best tastes of the west. Many spots explore south-of-the-border dishes for a Latin fusion flavor explosion, but many others branch out to other corners of the globe for their dishes.
On top of all of the different types of cuisine, you can explore, the environment and ambiance of Scottsdale restaurants transport you to a sexy New York speakeasy, a vibrant Latin kitchen, or an elegant Parisian wine bar.
Whether you want to stick to a theme for your bachelorette weekend or just take on the theme of “a weekend where we eat as much great food as possible,” we have the best Scottsdale restaurants to add to your bachelorette bucket list.
A LUXURY MEAL FOR A VIP FEEL
Explore the finer things in life. A Scottsdale bachelorette party is a great excuse to live like queens (and eat like them too). Want to feel a little extra for the weekend? Add one of these high-end Scottsdale restaurants to your weekend for an elegant celebration and delicious splurge.
These options require a nicer dress code and a higher price tag, but the hardcore foodies in your group will thank you over and over after an unparalleled culinary experience at one of these spots.
Have you ever eaten a masterpiece of garden goodness? That’s what it feels like when you’re handed your plate at FnB Scottsdale. FnB prioritizes local farms and purveyors, as well as the seasonal harvest to create amazing plates that showcase the best bounty of Scottsdale. Because of this, their menu constantly changes. So no matter how many times you go to FnB you’ll be greeted with brand new options.
We love this option for groups with diverse food preferences because you can always find meat-free options in their light, vegetable-forward fare. With the head chef, Charleen Badman, known as “the veggie whisperer”, you know you found someone who’s going to get even the carnivores to eat their greens.
Bask in the warm glow of a luxurious golden ambiance as you take in all of the Latin-inspired flavors of the menu. The Mission menu shows familiar plates, like grilled, street corn, tacos, and empanadas. But look a little closer and you’ll see the true magic. They showcase brussels sprouts tacos with sesame, chile de arbol, apple, ginger, toasted peanut & cotija. Or a Duck carnitas empanada with duck confit, foie gras, orange habanero glaze, oregano, mushroom and queso Oaxaca.
So if you’re looking to redefine your understanding of Latin cuisine, The Mission should be at the top of your list.
If you were looking for a fun brag for your Scottsdale bachelorette weekend, here it is. You can say you dined at Cafe Monarch, a top-three fine-dining restaurant in the nation, and each server is trained through the prestigious Court of Master Sommeliers program to ensure a perfect wine pairing for every meal option. The Cafe Monarch ambiance pairs this expert staff with a dining gold-endowed room fit for royalty. Cafe Monarch pulls out every stop to make sure that they offer a premier dining experience for their guests.
An evening dining experience includes four courses, each more decadent and inventive than the next.
Note – This is a true fine-dining experience that requires business casual outfits at the least. We only recommend this spot for the foodiest of foodies, as it is the most expensive choice on our list. But for those up to the price tag, this culinary experience will be one to look back on for ages.
Did you dream of having an upscale Mediterranean bachelorette destination trip, but settled for Scottsdale instead? Adding Virtú to your bachelorette restaurant bucket list will transport you to the cozy, intimate ambiance of a romantic bistro nestled in a small Italian coastal town. With fresh-made pasta, gorgeous cuts of meat, and the most delicate flavors of the sea, the Virtú menu is cheaper than a flight to the Mediterranean but will taste just as good.
A MEAL & PREGAME ALL IN ONE
Some of us came to party. Good thing Scottsdale can deliver on that goal 100 times over. If you’re looking for Scottsdale restaurants that match a party girl attitude, here are our favorite pregame eats that set up your big night out right.
At The Bottled Blonde, you get a great dinner and one of Scottsdale’s best party spots in the same spot. By day, you can find delicious pizzas, Italian subs, and salads to fill your belly. By night, the DJs come out to play while you take shots and dance all night long.
Bottled Blonde is known for its hot staff, endless shots, and dramatic bottle services. A Bikini-clad bartender on a tiny motorcycle parading a lit-up bottle of champagne to a table? That’s the kind of exciting, sexy, slightly confusing vibe we want to embody during a Scottsdale bachelorette weekend.
The most efficient choice for when you want to grab dinner and start partying at the same time? Head over to Wasted Grain. If your priority is to jump straight into a party scene, you don’t have to do it surviving off of bowls of peanuts and pretzels! Not only is Wasted Gain one of our top spots for rowdy Scottsdale nightlife, but they also have a full menu of share plates, salads, pizzas, and burgers.
So always remember: beer before liquor, never sicker. But buffalo chicken eggrolls before shots, you’ll thank yourself a lots.
Start a different kind of party at Toca Madera – a moody, sensual, party, gold-infused party. This is a party fueled by a vast selection of the finest tequilas and mezcals, as well as a rotating selection of wines from around the world. With re-imagined Latin fusion flavors and a sexy atmosphere, just try to not hit the town after dinner at Toca Madera.
Add a pop of color, a pop of flavor, and a pop of Diego to your evening out. Diego Pops brings it all with delicious food in a casual yet trendy atmosphere. This is a few steps above your hole-in-the-wall taco spot without sacrificing on amazing flavor from fresh ceviche to brussels sprouts nachos (WHAT?!). For those who like twinkle lights, gorgeous tile decorations, colorful margs, and boozy snow cones to really round out an adorable bachelorette group photo, you’ll be very happy here.
Some bachelorette groups don’t mind skipping the glitz and glamour for a great wiener and beer enjoyed on a bench outside. Brat Haus is the perfect spot after a day full of desert adventures or lake shenanigans – when you’re sweaty, dusty, and desperate for delicious food and drinks. While it seems like simple fare, there are veggie and vegan options so everyone can devour their brat of choice. Sit on the benches outside, sip some beers, make new friends, do some dog-watching, and enjoy the Scottsdale sun without a care in the world.
Take on multiple levels of taco and tequila-fueled fun before your Scottsdale bachelorette night out at Cien Agaves Tacos and Tequila. This local taco spot is great for a large selection of spirits, tacos, and other Latin flavors all in a bustling, trendy, colorful atmosphere.
With both indoor and street seating, you can either enjoy the sun or take a break from it for a while. Either way, the icy drinks, and spicy bites will hit the spot every time.
