Forget Rodeo Drive and SoHo–the nation’s hottest purveyors of fashion are located right here in Arizona at the Scottsdale Quarter. Located just a hop, skip, and jump away from North Phoenix; this unique outdoor mixed-use retail center houses some of today’s most popular clothing, home furnishings, and fine dining Scottsdale has to offer.
Thanks to several chic sportswear stores located in the Scottsdale Quarter, Athletic Arizonans don’t have to sacrifice functionality for style. lululemon athletica, the Vancouver-based fitness outfitter with a cult following in the U.S., offers yoga-inspired gear for both men and women that will keep you looking cool, even while you sweat. Shoppers can pick up a sleek new pair of custom kicks at Nike, which offers activewear for both men and women for a variety of sports. Calvin Klein Performance provides active women with well tailored performance clothing, which easily transitions from the spin studio to Happy Hour.
With the Quarter’s unique approach to the typical shopping mall, it’s not unexpected that its movie theater is also something much more than ordinary. iPic, dubbed as the “Ultimate Movie Experience,” is unlike any theater you have experienced before: don’t expect sticky floors and the smells of stale popcorn here. Instead, the iPic offers an innovative upscale theater experience, complete with Salt, a full service wine, cocktail and beer bar, and Tanzy, the theater’s restaurant, which offers both dine-in service, or delivery straight to your movie seat. Now, you won’t have to choose between dinner and drinks or a movie night–iPic makes it easy to do all three in style.
However, if you would rather opt for just dinner and drinks, no need to worry. Scottsdale Quarter offers a variety of cuisines that will satisfy any appetite–from seafood and live music at Eddie V’s Prime Seafood, sashimi and sake at Stingray Sushi, or beer and thin crust pizza at Grimaldi’s Pizzeria. Those on a health kick will appreciate a menu full of fresh, regionally sourced produce and fresh fish and meats from True Foods Kitchen, while those looking for traditional American fare will find dishes such as house made Mac N’ Cheese and Pulled Pork Sandwiches at TK’s Urban Tavern. Need an after dinner sweet? Stop by Menchies Frozen Yogurt for DIY froyo, where the toppings are totally up to you– keep it simple with fruit and granola, or indulge by piling on the Kit Kats and caramel.
