Dinner and Dancing in Phoenix

  • b

Hey, guys! :)

I was asked, and as the wonderful Jester didn't know off the top of his head, y'all are of course the next stop.

Coworker is looking for a place in Phoenix for nice dinner and ballroom dancing... What do you guys recommend?

  1. I'm trying to think if any of the resorts have something that fits. I do remember the Bistro at the Ritz offering music, but I'm not sure about the dancing part. You might want to check on that.

      Is Marco Polo still open? There was one at Camelback and about 26th street and another in Scottsdale at Shea and the 101. I believe that have/had dancing.

      I hate to say this, but Barcelona? Not exactly ballroom dancing, but dancing.

        Marco Polo on Shea is long gone. It was a steak place and is now Maloneys.

        Alas...for the most part, you may have dinner or you may dance...or you can do one after the other. but together? Not usually, not here. (Okay - maybe Johnny's Uptown) - but I just did yet another story on ballroom dancing (shoes!) and unless you want to do McAlpines - kinda sorta dinner - and then swing dancing...
        U do recall that Drinkwater's occasionally has music, but the dance floor's only slightly larger than a handkerchief.
        Good luck!

          Check out the Chaparell at Camelback Inn, it is awesome!!!

        2. In what used to be called Uptown Plaza, Camelback and Central, there is a little supper club tucked in the corner (or there was). I seem to recall that this was a dine and dance establishment - not sure it fits the Ballroom requirement.
