5 Unique Features at Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row

Sure, Arizona is probably one of the top five states in the U.S. for good ol’ country bars. We still have our cowboys, Prescott, Wickenburg, Williams…the list could continue. But while we adore jukeboxes, cheap beer and Kentucky bourbon, patrons can have just a little more if they pause after a day of Old Towne Scottsdale shopping and head to new joint Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row. With an already rockin’ reputation and the name of one of the hottest country stars above its door to boot (pun intended), Whiskey Row boasts some other unique features you won’t find anywhere else.

State of the art technology: Whiskey Row offers an HDMI video system that controls video and sound from anywhere in the venue, all with help from an iPad, several iPhone and USB charging stations available around the bar and a massive 24 ft. TV on the back wall. As the most technologically advanced bar in the state, it also offers a concert quality 52,000 watt sound system and a 16 ft. by 20 ft. stage suspended from the ceiling located directly above the bar.

Beer and liquor taps: Each booth at Whiskey Row features three different beer taps and a liquor tap, a first for Arizona. Guests will have their choice of Coors Light, Blue Moon and New Castle and liquors including Yukon Jack Whiskey, Grey Goose Vodka flavors, American Honey Whiskey and more.

Bushwhacker-1Unique drinks: The drinks are like nothing you’ve ever had before. The unique mix of liquor and specialty ingredients make for mouthwatering flavor and great country cocktails:

• The Bushwhacker, a rich, chocolaty, milkshake-type cocktail, a Nashville classic, now has a new spin to it thanks to a few new special ingredients: Yukon Jack Wicked Hot Cinnamon Whiskey, Kahlua, cream coconut and milk blended with ice and served to order.

• The ever so popular boilermaker is a shot of whiskey dropped into a beer: The Working Class Hero Boilermaker is made with Bushmills Irish Whiskey, and Coors Banquet.

• Another signature drink is the Coffin Nail, with Grey Goose Cherry Noir, Black Cherry Soda, Red Bull with Fresh Blueberries.

• The Cow Tipper is a beer infused cocktail made with Dock 57 Blackberry Whiskey, lemon juice, agave nectar and muddled blackberries and is topped off with PBR.

The best dining, hospitality and live music: Riot Hospitality Group (RHG), a restaurant management with multiple nightclubs and restaurant/bars in Arizona and select U.S. markets is run by Ryan Hibbert, Mike Troyan and Jon Wright. With ownership in three successful bar/restaurants in Arizona and Chicago, RHG has set themselves apart with its trendy, “edgy” feel, excellent service and quality of product. They only use local produce and meats and the food at their venues is made to order to fit the customer’s needs. RHG promises to bring in different live talent each week making it once again stand out from other country bars around the valley. Musicians Jon Pardi and A Boy Named Sioux set the tone when they performed at the July 4th grand opening.

A Great American Gastro-pub Fare cuisine at bar prices: With quality organic food made from scratch, who could pass up the southern food offered at bar prices? Alabama BBQ Grilled Chicken is half grilled chicken basted in Alabama own white sauce with grilled broccolini and deviled egg potato salad all for $14. Or how about the Badass Bloody,  a house-made bloody mary mix, with cucumber vodka served over ice, topped with a bacon bleu cheese slider and homemade pickled vegetables?

Dierks Bentley's Whiskey Row Supports Bentley's "Country Cares Concert"

Dierks Bentley made a special surprise appearance at Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row in Scottsdale on Sunday, July 21. He surprised fans with a live performance before traveling to Prescott Valley where he was scheduled to host the sold-out “Country Cares Concert” to raise money for the families of the 19 Granite Mountain HotShot fire crew members who died earlier this month while battling the Yarnell Hill Wildfire.

Bentley, who organized the concert, was one of four artists including The Band Perry, David Nail and Randy Houser who performed at Tim’s Toyota Center. The “Country Cares Concert” raised over $400,000 for families of the Yarnell Hill HotShot crew. All proceeds will go to the United Phoenix Firefighters Association, which will distribute the funds directly to the families of the fallen firefighters. Approximately 6,000 people attended the sold-out Monday night show.

Whiskey Row showed its support by taking its entire staff to the benefit concert and making a $25,000 donation by purchasing a guitar auctioned at the event. The guitar will be put on display at Whiskey Row as a memorial.

“It was great to have Dierks make an appearance at Whiskey Row and draw more attention to the benefit concert,” said Ryan Hibbert, owner of Riot Hospitality Group (RHG), the management company that operates Whiskey Row. “Everyone at Whiskey Row felt it was important that we take part in what Dierks was doing for the families of the 19 brave men killed battling the Yarnell Hill Wildfire. Having the guitar displayed in Whiskey Row will be a permanent tribute to them.”

Sunday marked the first time Bentley has had an opportunity to visit the bar to experience the finished product since it opened on July 4. While there, Dierks mingled with guests and enjoyed items from the delicious one-of-a-kind menu as well as some refreshing samples from Whiskey Row’s selection of adult beverages.

Dierks Bentley holding benefit for firefighters

Dierks Bentley, who grew up in Phoenix, has one day off the rest of this month and he’s giving it to the families of fallen firefighters in Arizona.

The country music star will host the “Country Cares Concert” on July 22 in Prescott Valley, where 19 members of a wildland firefighting crew were killed last week. Their deaths left behind 51 fatherless children, a number that sticks with the former Arizona resident as he waits for the birth of his third child later this year.

“We want to make as much for those families as we can and hopefully start something that will continue on long after the music is over as far as remembering the firefighters and their families and these kids that live on as well,” Bentley said. “We want to help get something rolling to look after them and help them move forward.”

The Granite Mountain Hotshots from the Prescott Fire Department were killed June 30 near Yarnell, Ariz., when winds shifted, cutting off their escape route. It was the largest loss of life for firefighters in a single event since the Sept. 11 World Trade Center terrorist attacks in 2001 in New York.

A memorial service was to be held Tuesday with Vice President Joe Biden and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano scheduled to attend.

Bentley is inviting other performers for the benefit, to be announced in the coming days. All proceeds from the concert will go to the United Phoenix Firefighters to be distributed directly to the families of the fallen. Tickets for the event go on sale Friday at the Tim’s Toyota Center box office in Prescott Valley or online at sponsor radio station KMLE-FM’s website.

Bentley grew up in Phoenix and has fond memories of rolling through the area on Highway 69. He spent a lot of time camping and fishing in the central part of the state before moving the Nashville for college and the music business, and is glad he can return to help out.

“It’s a tragic event but hopefully this will provide some healing and sort of be an uplifting moment for the community,” Bentley said. “We want to raise some money, try to be positive, focus on the good things and do something good on this occasion. Hopefully, it will be a fun evening in the face of tragic events and raise people’s spirits.”
