Thankfully there’s no shortage of venues to see live music in the E.V. From all-ages venues like The Real Bar and Clubhouse to 21-and-older hot spots like Last Exit and Yucca Tap Room.

Dance clubs

From upscale to casual to DJs to live music, East Valley dance clubs have a little something for everyone. Heck, you can even two-step your way through a weekend at one of these clubs.

The downtown Scottsdale dance club is one of the choicest nightspots in the East Valley. The massive club, which is slammed on weekend nights, boasts four theme rooms, which represent the four elements (earth, fire, liquid and air) along with DJs who spin rock, hip-hop and mash-ups, a full menu and signature cocktails.

Cherry Pit & Lounge

With dancing poles and scandalous poster-sized photos — such as a woman sucking on a cherry — it’s hard not to blush at Mill Avenue’s saucy Cherry Pit & Lounge (see photos). The 10,000-square-foot dance club and lounge, which is known as Club Cherry to its regulars, is bathed in red. In addition to offering two rooms for dancing, the club features DJs, a stage for live music and VIP booths designed for sinning in a loftlike setting.

Open: 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. daily.

Info: 411 S. Mill Ave., Tempe, (480) 966-3573 or thecherryloungeaz.com

Myst

Although sweaty clubbers pack the dance floor at Myst on most weekends, the nightspot is becoming known for its talent above all else. On Fridays the club hosts House 7340, where national DJs such as Paul Van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold and Felix Da Cat take over the decks at the posh bilevel club, which also features private VIP booths and bottle service, a large patio and a house “flairtender” who crafts colorful bubbly concoctions.

Axis/Radius

You never know what celebrities you’ll rub elbows with at this hot dance club. While Paris Hilton has yet to host a party here and Tara Reid hasn’t taken a drunken stumble down the stairs — yet — singer Nick Lachey, former boxer Mike Tyson, Cardinals quarterback Matt Leinart, DJ AM and actor/model Tyrese have all partied at the see-and-be-seen club, which underwent a $1 million revamp last year.

Open: 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. Wednesday through Saturday.

Anderson’s Fifth Estate

Over the years, celebrities-to-be like comedian David Spade and Valley rockers The Gin Blossoms performed at Scottsdale’s longest-running nightclub, which opened in 1982 and features two rooms and a patio. The bar still draws a crowd. Take Fridays, for example, when Valley DJ William Reed hosts the dance/rock night Pretty Vacant where Marky Ramone of The Ramones and Daniel Ash of Bauhaus have been among guest spinsters. Anderson’s also features a goth/rock night and a retro dance party.

On the weekends, people pack the club and there’s a massive line out the door just to get into this see-and-be-seen nightspot, which features hourly burlesque-style entertainment.(Get Out)

Martini Ranch

Part live music venue, part lounge and part dance club, Scottsdale’s long-standing Martini Ranch offers a little something for everyone. Singer/songwriter Pete Yorn, Bob Schneider and the Jared Leto-fronted 30 Seconds to Mars performed last year, while the rock band Winger performed last week. There’s usually a line to get upstairs to the Shaker Room, the bar’s small dance club, on the weekends, but the bar’s biggest draw is on Sundays when Valley metal tribute/hair band Metalhead pack ’em in performing songs from Guns ’N Roses, Bon Jovi, AC/DC and Cinderella.

Barcelona

You’re bound to see a 50-something man with a younger woman as arm candy at this swanky club, which is known around the E.V. as a sugar daddy hangout. Barcelona — which boasts a spacious patio, dance club and La Rouge, a martini lounge and supper club — attracts a beautiful crowd.

People can practice their two-step in the Rockin’ Rodeo country room or get a taste of retro in Confetti’s, where a DJ spins ’80s and ’90s hits. There’s also a karaoke bar called Alley Cats, where patrons can rock out to their favorite track or sing along with professional singers and dancers.

Lounges

Over the last two years, the E.V. lounge scene has exploded and more chic lounges have popped up in Scottsdale and Tempe with each trying to outdo the last and go above and beyond the lounge experience.

The Crown Room

Thursdays are a prime time to hit this chic Scottsdale lounge when the Crown Room hosts their weekly ladies night. Bartenders serve complimentary bubbly to the ladies while DJ Gable spins a mix of rock and hip-hop jams.

If you’re not a fan of champagne, be sure to try one of the bar’s specialty martinis like the Cookie Dough Martini, which melts in your mouth and not in your hand. And since the ladies come out in droves for the free champagne, the men follow suit, which makes Thursdays a slammin’ night.

Open: 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. Wednesday through Saturday

Info:7419 E. Indian Plaza, Scottsdale, (480) 423-0117

Zuma Grill

There’s always some kind of nightly entertainment going on at the Mill Avenue hot spot — from Valley DJs Soloman and Morley, who keep the people on their feet with high-energy music, to singer/songwriters like Bobby St. Vincent and Shawn Johnson, who perform covers as well as original music. The bar also offers a large martini menu with options like the popular Cherry Martini.

Jackrabbit’s Supper Club

When Britney Spears visited the East Valley in January, the pop star made an appearance at this Scottsdale supper club and lounge, where she reportedly made out with Cardinals quarterback Matt Leinart. Spears and Leinart aren’t the only ones who are drawn to this hip hangout, which features hourly burlesque-style entertainment, martinis and DJ-spun music.

Cover: $5-$10

The Pussycat Lounge

With two-for-one drinks until 10 p.m. nightly, the PCL — as those in the know call it — gets the party started early. The bar is usually swarming with the young and fashionably hip who shake their groove thangs to Top 40 and old-school hip-hop jams or show off their pole-dancing moves on one of the club’s dancing poles. There’s also a fluffy swing where the ladies can’t help but vogue. Expect a line on weekends — after 11 p.m., it’s difficult to get into this Scottsdale hotspot.

Open: 8 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Info: 4426 N. Saddlebag Trail, Scottsdale, (480) 481-3100 or pclaz.com

Sky Bar

The former James Hotel switched over to the Mondrian last year and, as a result, the hotel and bar — known as the J Bar — were revamped. The Mondrian introduced the stylish Sky Bar in January (see photos). The bar features a white-, black- and red-themed room with funky furniture and separate bars. There’s also a large patio area with a fireplace and heat lamps along with a black-and-white polka-dot bed. And if the bar’s grand opening, which drew former “Laguna Beach” star Kristin Cavallari and “Apprentice” contestant Jenn Hoffman, is any indication, the Sky Bar may be the place for celebrity watching.

Info: 7353 E. Indian School Road, Scottsdale, (480) 308-0549 or mondrianscottsdale.com

Suede

We suggest arriving early to this popular night-life destination on weekend nights. The lounge is typically packed with wall-to-wall beautiful people in their 20s to 40s.

Six

The Scottsdale lounge certainly has unique restrooms — unisex bathrooms, which are clearly visible through a glass door until you lock the door, which makes the glass turn opaque. In addition to funky bathrooms, the sleek nightclub offers a plush lounge complete with bed and throw pillows and signature martinis that you can picture the women from “Sex and the City” toasting.

Cover: Free to $5 (men only pay a cover)

Open: 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Sunday through Tuesday

Chill Spots

You don’t have to adhere to a fancy dress code to get into one of these fun establishments, which offer cheap drinks and a kick-back atmosphere.

A mixed crowd chills out at Tempe’s Casey Moore’s on a weekend night.

(Brandon Quester/Special to Get Out)

Casey Moore’s Oyster House

You’re bound to run into someone you know at this rumored-to-be-haunted Tempe neighborhood bar, which isn’t flooded with college students like other ASU watering holes. The warm and cozy “Cheers”-like haunt — where the bartenders know your name and will hand you your cold brew of choice before you have a chance to order — is a favorite among Valley hipsters, musicians and hippies. The bar’s claim to fame? Jimmy Eat World name-checked the popular Ninth and Ash spot on their track “If You Don’t, Don’t.”

Fibber Magees

While Chandler certainly doesn’t have a lot to offer in terms of night life, Fibber Magees is the gleaming needle in a small haystack of bars and clubs. Like Casey Moore’s, the bar, which features warm woods, hardwood floors and bookshelves that line the back wall, has a lot of regulars and the bartenders know them by name.

Cantinas

Since the surf is another state away, we have to make due with the next best thing: beach bar-style cantinas. And we’re certainly not lacking the themed bars in the E.V., which feature everything but the ocean.

Dos Gringos

Coronas and margaritas are the libations of choice at this laid-back two-story bar.

Dos Gringos Trailer Park

Body shots are on the menu at this college hangout, where you’re likely to see saucy co-eds donating their flat abs for some drinking shenanigans. The Tempe location is just as popular as its Scottsdale counterpart but with more of a college crowd, given its proximity to ASU.
