An Insider’s Guide 

While resorts have great concierge services, sometimes it’s nice to discover some things on your own so this page is for you.  For the most part these recommendations are all for locally owned businesses as we here at DIG want our local companies to thrive!

Late Night

Looking for bars open after midnight?  There are three great nearby bars that are open til 2a every night. There’s also a newly opened place at Scottdale Road and Chauncey called Chauncey Social that’s a restaurant nightclub open til 2a on weekends.

Nearby Sports Bar

If you’re looking for a sports bar your best bet is Cold Beer and Cheeseburgers – tell Uber to take you to the one at Scottsdale and Chauncey but if you that’s not your speed, try Arena Sports Bar.

There’s also a Target, Ross and TJ Maxx right down the road on Frank Lloyd Wright and the 101.

Live Music

Want the closest club to be single and mingle?  Blue Martini on  High Street.  They also have live music.  BLK Live is also nearby and has live music and CB Live recently opened in Desert Ridge which is about 3 miles from the Fairmont.

Food For Foodies

Not sure what you want to eat but definitely looking for some high brow eats? Hop over to Kierland Commons on Scottsdale Road, you could practically walk there if the weather permits.  At Kierland you’ll find Zinc Bistro a French-inspired cafe, the Mission @ Kierland – Latin American food and Ocean Club which is seafood and steak.  If you’ve already tried all those places,  cross the street at Scottsdale Quarter and check out Dominick’s Steakhouse and Obon Sushi. If it’s Tuesday or you’re just craving tacos – practically walking distance from the Princess is Blue Agave and Cien Agave both at 7000 Mayo.  Check out their Taco Tuesday deals.
