More New Businesses are Moving into Downtown Scottsdale
As Scottsdale continues to grow, new businesses are moving to downtown. There is a new restaurant/gift shop moving in next to Cavalliere’s Blacksmith Shop, an Old Town business that predates Arizona’s centennial, a father and son brewery, and a new dining spot where Pottery Paradise was once located.
“The pace of business activity in downtown Scottsdale over the past four years has been amazing,” said Mayor Jim Lane in the AZCentral.com article. “Whether it’s new businesses coming to Scottsdale or existing businesses expanding, commercial office space in downtown is in high demand. This is largely because of the style of living that downtown Scottsdale offers. It’s a pretty special place that continues to get better as new residential, retail and restaurant options open and attract even more attention.”
The recent article states the following retail/restaurant locations are set to open by late summer/early fall:
Doc’s Café and Gifts
A family owned shop, Doc’s Cafe and Gifts are located between the blacksmith shop and the Mission restaurant on Brown Avenue. Named after the late George “Doc” Cavalliere, the new hot spot will serve breakfast and lunch, opening in the fall.
Goldwater Brewing Co.
Greg McClelland and his son Chad found a spot in Old Town to open their dream microbrewery. They picked the old building that used to be home to Mandall’s Shooting Supplies to make their new beer.
“I’ve been sort of a master home brewer for 30 years and my son is a brewer at the Cartel Brewery,” Greg McClelland said in the recent article. “All the brewing production will be in the back and then in the front will be a tasting room. We’re not going to have food. We’ve got some secret recipes that we’re going to unveil.”
Look for an exciting, healthy Mexican restaurant at 4338 N. Scottsdale Road opening soon. Owner Diego Pops says there will be a beautiful outdoor patio, as well as an attractive indoor space to dine. Enjoy menu selections such as Ahi poke, tacos and fresh margaritas.
Sushi J will feature a wide variety of sushi, appetizers and Asian-inspired cocktails. Hand rolls named Marilyn Monroll, the Superman Roll and Fire in the Mouth are just to name a few. Located at 4320 N. Miller Road in the Camelback and Miller Plaza shopping center, this should be a huge hit.
For all the fashionistas out there, Cathy Beach is opening her very own boutique. After working in the LA fashion industry for several years, the Scottsdale native is opening the retail space at 7070 E. Indian School Road. Described as a “very Bohemian vibe”, the shop is featuring clothes and accessories that focuses on sustainable manufacturing and organic materials.
“Our customers here are mothers and daughters, and we have a lot of college-age girls or in their later 20s, all women,” Beach said in the article. “It’s been great, we’ve had a lot of people and online sales are definitely building. Obviously traffic during the summer is not amazing, but weekends are good.”
