Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain is adding some flair to summer in Scottsdale with a new “Bar Brawl” series. In the spirit of friendly rivalry, top local talent will square off from behind the bar to raise the championship belt (plus they’ll win a Las Vegas getaway). The competition launches July 19 with match-ups at jade bar every Sunday through Aug. 16. Weekly winners will advance to semi-finals on Aug. 23 and Aug. 30, and the champion brawl will be held Sept. 13.  Including DJ entertainment and a new menu of “Bar Brawl Bites” at happy hour prices, jade bar is turning Sunday night (starting at 8 p.m.) into the best part of the weekend.

Each brawl kicks off at 8:30 p.m. and goes three rounds focused on a specific spirit, with the program emceed by Executive Chef Beau MacMillan and refereed by Sanctuary’s lead mixologist, Eddie Aces. Resulting cocktails are judged by a panel of local celebrities, and the winner of two rounds on any given night will move to the semi-finals.
