Now in Scottsdale: From Versace's New Boutique to Epic Dining at Francine

By Allison Mitchell | September 3, 2020 | Food & Drink Lifestyle Eat Shop Travel Style

Step away from the daily stresses of life and check out the latest concepts that make Scottsdale the place to be—from Versace’s new boutique to epic dining at Francine.


INDULGE Following its locations in Gilbert and Phoenix, Clovr Life Spa is now open at Gainey Ranch and bringing with it all of its top-notch offerings. Settle into its design-forward living room before enjoying an array of personalized massages and facials plus nail and waxing services. Then, unwind in The Chill Lounge where relaxation and meditation are heavily encouraged. Let the R&R commence.


EAT A taste of the Mediterranean awaits in Fashion Square’s luxury wing at Francine. Led by acclaimed French-trained executive chef Brian Archibald and founder Laurent Halasz of Fig & Olive fame, the exquisitely designed restaurant will tempt taste buds with gorgeous dishes like grilled octopus, zucchini carpaccio, striped bass and seared duck a la Provençal. Dig in.


SHOP Fashion Square continues its Scottsdale reign as the hot spot for designer duds and its latest addition is no exception. Occupying 3,131 square feet, Versace is now open and offering a glamorous selection of its men’s and women’s ready-to-wear apparel and accessories. Shop to it.;


SEE Take your living quarters to great new heights at 7180 Optima Kierland, where its McDowell Mountain Collection features nine coveted penthouses starting at a cool $1.1 million. While you’ll have to wait until January 2021 to call a penthouse home, the eco-chic building, designed by Optima president and principal architect David Hovey Jr., entices with five-star amenities. The crown jewel is the 12th-floor Sky Deck, which includes a sprawling heated lap pool and Arizona’s first residential rooftop running track.
