Gotham City

W Scottsdale’s WET Deck dresses up as Gotham City this Halloween

W Scottsdale announced it’s throwing a haunted Halloween weekend with leather, lace, heroes and villains; transforming the WET deck into the corrupted Gotham City on Friday, Oct. 31. Doors open at 8 p.m. and the event is 21 years and older.

Join W Scottsdale this Halloween as guests are invited to experience the sinister side of Gotham City. W Scottsdale’s Living Room will host one of Bruce Wayne’s famous Manor parties for guests to mix and mingle while enjoying sultry jazz sounds by Seryrop Live with Dayweather. Bruce Wayne and his butlers will later escort guests to the grand staircase, enclosed under a tunnel with sinister drapery and soaring bats to set the mood before entering the criminal underworld that has been taken over by the malicious Joker and his minions.

W Scottsdale’s WET deck will transform into a dark megalopolis equipped with staggering high-rises, city skylines and smoking potholes. Dark lighting and fog will enhance the eerie Gotham City décor, including the signature Batman spotlight, a Joker themed DJ booth, villain servers and Batman’s surprise grand entrance onto the WET pool deck.

The entertainment doesn’t stop there: Gotham City residents will be able to watch Batman take on the Joker himself while listening to resident W Scottsdale DJ Knick Knack and sip on signature cocktails. Guests are encouraged to come dressed in their best Halloween costumes.

W Scottsdale is located at 7277 E. Camelback Rd. Scottsdale, AZ. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.wscottsdalehotel.com/gotham.

CHILL rink

W Scottsdale Launches CHILL Ice Rink

One of the coldest nights of the season was the perfect setting for W Scottsdale to launch its CHILL ice rink.

The only way to describe the transformation of the WET deck into the CHILL rink at W Scottsdale is a winter wonderland. CHILL is a 1,500-square-foot hybrid ice rink that covers the WET pool. It will stay open until December 29.

Ford Runway2W Scottsdale kicked off CHILL’s season opening with a fashion show by FORD at 10 p.m.  in the living room of the W Scottsdale’s lobby. The show featured Fashion by Robert Black, and the clothes the models donned could only be described as glitter overload… and I loved it! So many great pieces that would be absolutely perfect for a New Year’s Eve celebration!

Some of my favorite pieces included leather leggings with a glittery blazer that could be perfect for a Saturday night out in Old Town.

A mini black dress with the champagne bottle and glasses graphic had me speechless, Ford Runwaybecause if there is one thing that I love more than a LBD it’s my love for the bubbly.

A see-through cover up that transitioned between a glittery blue to a glittery pink was absolutely stunning and the model wore a matching gold bandeau and high waist shorts set underneath.

The atmosphere of the party was very chill and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. Carolers were singing to get the guests in the holiday state of mind and everyone was sitting back and laughing with good friends. It was a great evening to get dressed up, skate around the rink and pop a bottle of Champs!
