About the venue: Bottled Blonde is the newest neighborhood concept of restaurant & nightlife developers Evening Entertainment Group. We’ve upped the al-fresco ante by carving out 9,000+ sq ft of covered patio dining and lounge space right in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale’s bustling Entertainment District. So what can you expect from the new digs? Our contemporary Italian menu and ambiance are both rustic and relaxed. Grab a seat at one of our picnic-style tables, and tuck in to a gourmet wood-fired pizza and board of artisanal salumi with craft beer in-hand. We’ve taken modern nods from both the classic Italian kitchen and German bier garden – communal in nature with emphasis on beloved recipes, local and craft beer.
