Scottsdale’s entertainment district continues its expansion with a new cocktail lounge aimed at house music fans

We want anybody who enjoys good music, great drinks and an intimate lounge atmosphere to feel like this can be their new home base in Old Town Scottsdale.

The newest addition to Scottsdale’s thriving nightlife scene opened its doors last weekend. The Dollhouse Cocktail Lounge gives revelers an exciting new option for their late night antics in the heart of Old Town’s entertainment district.

The founders of the club envisioned the Dollhouse as a higher-end venue that wouldn’t be too pretentious for people who just want to have a good time. After purchasing the Crown Room, a local nightlife fixture, for an undisclosed sum in August, the team completed an extensive remodel to dramatically update the feel of the club.

With the build-out, the team raised the ceiling three feet, moved the DJ booth to the opposite end of the room, added a dozen comfortable VIP tables, lengthened the bar and installed an incredible sound and lighting system. Despite the extensive remodel, the nightclub retains an intimate feel, in part because its one of the smaller venues in Old Town.

“Being small has its benefits,” says founder Chad Landau. “We don’t need 200 people in this room for people to feel comfortable and have a good time. We’re going for the boutique lounge atmosphere, where you can hang out with friends, taste some amazingly good drinks and enjoy music from some of the world’s top DJs.”

Indeed, the club developed a specialty drinks menu that includes a dozen original cocktails not found anywhere else in the world. The drinks, each of which contains a blend of fresh fruit, herbs and high end liquor, are named after vintage children’s dolls. At $10, the prices for these exotic drinks are quite reasonable, which is in line with the founders’ vision of creating an upscale experience within reach for most of Scottsdale’s party-goers.

Opening weekend at the club brought out droves of friends and family to wish the founders well in their new endeavor, but unlike some other recently opened clubs, the founders aren’t aiming to be extremely exclusive in who they let in.

“We want anybody who enjoys good music, great drinks and an intimate lounge atmosphere to feel like this can be their new home base in Old Town,” says G.R. Boone, the club’s general manager. “If you talk to folks like that, tell them to come out and party with us.”
