The impressive liquor wall at Pigtails

Take a trip back in time to the speakeasy era with a hidden lounge located behind another cocktail cove. Pigtails, a secluded spinoff of The Whining Pig in Desert Ridge Marketplace, boasts vintage flair with modern twists on classic drinks. Summertime tipplers looking to escape the heat during those balmy Scottsdale nights can kick back on plush couches, hide out among the flora-and-fauna-clad walls or swap secrets over zippy cocktails. Need help deciding what to get? Pull up to bar and admire the haphazard yet well-appointed lineup of spirits lining the wall. For a taste of something truly local, try the Arizona Rain cocktail, a mix of gin, lemon, creosote and prickly pear—it harkens to that ethereal feeling just before a hard rain in the desert, according to to bar owner Daniel Caprario. 21001 N. Tatum Blvd., Ste. 46-1405, Phoenix
