And the party can always move outside with a decked out patio that sees lots of action. During the night, this Scottsdale bar takes on more of a club atmosphere with an eclectic mix of people that are mostly the under-30 set. DJs spin excellent music and there are almost always some kind of drink specials going on. The Firehouse is especially popular as a late-night haunt, with its own after-hours food menu and drink specials; if it gets so late it’s turning into the next day, breakfast is served any time.
If you and the guys use your smartphones to check in at the Firehouse on Facebook before 11 p.m., you’ll get a house shot for a penny.
