*Update – Casa Amigos and Skylanes will be opening January 26th*
The Valley-based nightlife & restaurant impresarios at Evening Entertainment Group
(EEG), and celebrity designer and HGTV star, Alison Victoria
, are proud to announce their latest Scottsdale landmark, Casa Amigos
and Sky Lanes
(7340 Indian Plaza, Scottsdale). Both housed inside the soaring two-story space previously known as Livewire, Casa Amigos is transforming the bottom floor into a stylish, spicy and downright sexy take on the traditional Mexican restaurant and lounge, while Sky Lanes upstairs will be a music-centric boutique bowling alley featuring bottle service late into the night. Scheduled to open in mid December, renovation is in full swing on this $4 million renovation project that kicked off in July in the heart of downtown Scottsdale’s Entertainment District.
Unspooling across the entire ground floor of this expanded, 16,000-plus square-foot building, Casa Amigos will import authentic Mexican fare to the heart of the Scottsdale Entertainment District, including signature build-your-own guacamole menus and late night dining. Think tacos such as crispy octopus or picadillo beef, hearty shared plates such as street corn or queso fundido and flavorful entrees such as the bacon-wrapped Sonoran hot dog or Veracruz grilled swordfish (menu items are subject to change). Plus Casa Amigos will also offer an extensive selection of handcrafted cocktails and icy cervezas, highlighted by dozens of premium sipping tequilas and mezcals and multiple Margarita varieties.
Upstairs at Sky Lanes, guests will discover a state-of-the-art bowling alley and lounge like nothing Scottsdale has ever seen before. Featuring a striking, retro-modern décor, Sky Lanes guests can enjoy a high-energy mix of modern pop music and throwback 80s & 90s jams, paired with bowling and bottle service well into the night.
Led by EEG owners, Diane and Les Corieri, both Casa Amigos and Sky Lanes have been designed by famed decorator and star of HGTV’s “Kitchen Crashers,” Alison Victoria, who previously collaborated with EEG on the popular Casa Añejo in Phoenix. In Scottsdale, Casa Amigos boasts a soaring, stylish Santa Barbara-inspired design, including bright white walls accented with colorful custom artwork and traditional Mexican tilework. Or step through the multiple foldaway window walls to enjoy the expansive and shaded dining patio and watch as the entire space transforms into a lively club scene once the lights go down.
“This location has always been special to Diane and me,” says Les Corieri, co-owner of Evening Entertainment Group. “From our original ultra-lounge and nightclub, Axis-Radius, to the former Livewire music hall, this space has always been a landmark in the Scottsdale nightlife scene. So when we looked to launch a new concept, we knew we had to go all out and create a one-of-a-kind experience that speaks to the way people like to nightlife today-casual yet stylish dining in an indoor-outdoor that setting takes advantage of Arizona’s wonderful weather. And then with Sky Lanes we know there a market for fun, cocktail-friendly entertainment with a high-energy vibe.”
