The Old Town Scottsdale Entertainment District is the hottest destination. Bevvy is the place you won’t want to miss and is the place to meet friends, enjoy a few drinks, have a great meal and see and be seen! The gastropub occupies the space of the former Derby and has been re-imagined as part sports bar, part restaurant, part laid back lounge and 100 percent fun. Bevvy always has a cool and upbeat vibe that appeals to a wide range of customers. Grab a spot at the bar, on one of the cushy couches or at one of the many comfortable open booths and discover the flavors and unique ambiance of Bevvy.
General Manager for Bevvy Lauren Dolan says, “I manage, operate and do a lot here.” Indeed, she is in charge of everything from hospitality to horseplay and beyond. Bevvy features lunch, dinner and weekend brunch and lots of creative craft cocktails. “We do brunch Saturday and Sunday,” adds Dolan. “Our open time varies a bit because its football season and sometimes we’ll open as early as 9 a.m. We’re a Patriots bar and those games start at 10 a.m. so we’re open in time for people to get seated and get ready for kick-off.” Bevvy brunch includes everything from the Brekkie Burro, Croissan’wiches, The Deep Bowl and Bagel Sandwiches to Texas French Toast,mimosas, bloody marys and a generous selection of breakfast sides.
Happy Hour at Bevvy’s is truly something special and runs 3-7p.m. Monday through Friday. “We do half off salads and appetizers and we have $5 burgers. They’re really big and they come with a side, too, so they’re a really good deal,” Dolan states. “We created it to be the best deal around and people love it. They come specifically to get the burger deal.” Happy Hour also features all beers for $3, well drinks for $3 and select wines for $5 a glass.
Dolan continues, “A lot of people who come here are really health conscious. On our menu we have rice bowls and a Bevvy Classic and those tend to be very popular.
The Muscle Plate isn’t mussels, but it is a protein plate.” The Muscle Plateincludes cilantro marinated chicken breast, quinoa, black beans and roasted red pepper hummus with grilled pita bread.
“Our fish and chips are really popular here, too,” notes Dolan. “We brought some flavors and seasonings that are reminiscent of the East Coast, like Old Bay. People that are looking for good fish and chips are really impressed with ours.” In another unique culinary twist, Bevvy offers the 60/40 burger. Cleverly crafted of 60 percent Angus beef and 40 percent applewood smoked bacon, the burger is also topped with cheddar cheese, bacon, avocado, fried onion strings and chipotle aioli - Talk about a deliciously different nosh!
You can’t leave Bevvy without trying one of their many craft cocktails. There is a generous selection of “Not Moscow Mules.” “Our Sparkplug is popular,” says Dolan. “It’s a coffee-based drink and people like to have that in the morning.” The Sparkplug includes Skyy Vanilla Vodka, Bailey’s Kahlua, locally grown coffee and is served chilled. Be sure to ask the server about the seasonal cocktails which rotate throughout the year. This fall, you can get a cranberry margarita, apple cider sangria and a fall mule. If you want to try something whimsical, order up a drink shot served out of a rubber duck. They’re hilariously cute that you just might “quack up!”
Bevvy boasts all of the sports packages, too. “Any sport you want to watch – we have the sports package,” says Dolan. Bevvy also is the only location in Central Scottsdale with off-track betting. “You can only find an OTB site every nine miles. We attract people from all over who want to bet on horses,” Dolan adds.
