Whether it’s a sports game, a round of darts or pool, live music, or just a hard-earned beer or cocktail, there’s always a reason to gather at the watering hole known to Scottsdale locals as “The Well Bar”. It’s an entertainment staple, but it’s a neighborhood bar, too. What’s even better is that The Well Bar offers a Happy Hour as well as drink specials during “Power Hour” — that is, ten to eleven in the morning, every morning. Now that’s something worth drinking to.
