Night Life

Best Nightclub
Maya Day and Nightclub
Maya’s namesake is a Hindi goddess of illusion and dreams, so keep that in mind next time you gussy up to join the beautiful masses in Maya’s pool or on the dance floor. Some of the top EDM performers have shook this place, ceiling to floor, day and night.

Best Happy Hour
Culinary Dropout
With a happy hour timed perfectly with getting off of work, its cheap appetizers and even cheaper drinks, Culinary Dropout is the place to be when it’s 5 o’clock somewhere. If this gastro-pub’s pretzel fondue doesn’t keep you coming back, you don’t stand a chance resisting its other menu fare and craft cocktails.

Readers’ Choice: Dos Gringos


Best Wine Bar
5th and Wine
One of the best places to grab a glass of wine and munch on paninis during a long lunch hour is 5th and Wine. If you’re looking for heavier fare, check out the burger bar, whilst basking in the glory of its wine list — served by glass and bottle — and engage in the classic past-time of people-watching.

Most Romantic Restaurant
Orange Sky
This is the perfect place for date night. Not only does this Talking Stick Resort restaurant offer an award winning food and wine selection and terrific indoor scenery, the 360-degree view of the Valley from the balcony is unparalleled. If you book you’re reservation for sunset, you and your date are guaranteed a memorable night. Dress code: business casual attire.
