Loco Patron (Ahwatukee)
Originally known for their wild and crazy Old Town Scottsdale location, Loco Patron Ahwatukee has perfectly intertwined their entertaining atmosphere with authentic fare and custom cocktails to fill the need for a more family friendly environment in Ahwatukee. Don’t worry though, even if you are sans children, this Cinco de Mayo party will still be a hot spot in town.
Highlights: Extended patio to fit the entire town! A mini donkey will be onsite for pictures from 11:30am-1:30pm and a full sized donkey from 5-9 pm. Local favorite, Signature, will be playing classic rock specialties starting at 7pm. Expect festivities all day and night for adults and kids.
Location: 1327 E. Chandler Blvd. #108, Phoenix 85048

El Santo (North Scottsdale)
My husband and I attended a VIP party last night, but this place is literally opening tomorrow! A fiery combination of Cantina + Patio Bar + Restaurant, El Santo is 25,000 square feet and is built around a Mexican resort style pool. Outside enjoy the resort style pool and patio with Private Villas, VIP Casitas, Palapa Grande Bar, beautiful flowing waterfall and much more.
They’ve been very secretive with details but this expected to be one of the wildest parties in the Valley!
Location: 7301 E Butherus Drive, Scottsdale 85260

Sandbar (Chandler, Desert Ridge and Peoria)
Sandbar will be hosting the ultimate Cinco de Sandbar fiestas at all three of their Valley locations!
Highlights: The party is started with $5 Frozen Margaritas and $3 Cervezas from 11am until 4pm. Guests can rock the night away at every location, with Hair Raid and The 8Teaze at Sandbar Desert Ridge; Black Bottom Lighters, Ethan and Matt (Ethan of EastonAshe), MOB vs Ba!!ot Box, and DJ Bazar at Sandbar Peoria; as well as Capital Down and The Walkens at Sandbar Chandler. In addition, Sandbar Peoria will host additional entertainment that includes bobbing for limes, jalapeno eating contest, and the bikini contest with $1000 in cash and prizes. To eliminate the problems many men have been facing, later that evening, things get punched up a notch with Mayweather vs. Cotto fight.
If one day of festivities isn’t enough, there is also a special cornhole tournament with cash and prizes on Sunday, May 6th.
