Sizzling Summer Specials
By: Carrie Rhoads

Stuck in the valley of the sun during our hot and humid months? If the answer is yes, then like me you are probably searching for ways to beat the heat, be it by lounging at the pool or sipping on some tasty libations. Great news… not all valley establishments are closed for the summer and many that are open have some excellent deals to boot.
Below is a list of some of the top summer deals I have spotted.

The Hotel Valley Ho. Multiple deals throughout the summer including happy hour, half off wine and half off food specials, oh my! Check out the link below for all of their special events.

Location: Hotel Valley Ho, 6850 East Main Street, Scottsdale, AZ 85251

2. Kelly’s at Southbridge. A runner up on my Extended Happy Hour List (, I was thrilled to see their extended happy hour time back for the summer! Half price wine bottles, $5 craft cocktails and discounted apps daily from 3-7 pm.

Location: 7117 E 6th Ave, Scottsdale, AZ 85251

3. Mowry & Cotton. Dining establishment in one of the finest hotels in the valley offering both a brunch and dinner deal for the summer. The dinner feast is $30 per couple including bread, a side and 2 entrees. The Porch Party has a 3 item for $30 option for 3 guests. Many of their drinks are half price for these events! Dinner feast available daily and brunch deals available Saturday and Sunday through August 31. Afternoon tea also available on select weekdays. See link for details.

Location: The Phoenician, 6000 East Camelback Road, Scottsdale, Arizona 85251

4. Hearth 61. Nestled inside the newly opened Mountain Shadows resort, this restaurant and bar offer many specials throughout the year. Their $12 rosé flight available through September is calling my name. Additional event details can be found here


5. Last but not least, Craft Cocktail Carrie’s top pick for staying cool…is to do a staycation or a daycation at one of the many hotels in the area. Most offer smoking summer deals for locals on overnight stays. Or for a quick day escape check out Resort pass! This service provides day access to the pool or spa for many of the top hotels around the valley. You can enjoy resort amenities without having to foot the bill of an overnight stay. Have a group? You can book cabanas through the site as well.

If you have a special that you want to see featured drop us a note. Stay cool out there!
