Ladies' Night Out in Scottsdale/PHX: recs?

We have one foodie, and a couple of sophisticated wine drinkers in our group, and we would like something definitely upscale but lively. We are staying at the Phoenician but have no problem cabbing or hiring a car. Would love some chowhound recs! Thanks in advance.

    1. Your username wins the award. I would suggest Armitage at DC's a wine bar with an upscale "Scottsdale" scene. Several other dining options are right there, including Sol y Sombra, a great tapas place that also has a very nice bar and heated outdoor patio.

        If you want to stay in the Vicinity of the Phoenician you may want to check out Southbridge...Olive and Ivy, Canal, Wildfish.
        If you feel like venturing futher into Old Town you have: Furio, Kazmirez, Cowboy Ciao, Fine's Cellar or v enture to 40th st and Campbell where you have Radio Milano, Il Postino and Chelsea's Kitchen.....
        All are fun and lively......

          NOTE: The official name of Kazimierz is Kazimierz World Wine Bar. So it would probably be up your alley of you are in the area. Its fun before and after dinner as well.

          There is also links to Cowboy Ciao and Sea Saw from that website.
