The return of 100+ degree temperatures in the greater Phoenix area also ushers in a cool reprieve in the form of a one-of-a-kind culinary experience in the underground wine cellar at LON’s at the Hermosa. Beginning June 1 through September 10, the hotel's signature restaurant will open its private subterranean wine cellar to offer guests and Valley residents a special five-course tasting menu (chef’s selection) for $125/person, not including tax and gratuity. Wine pairings are an additional $75 per person.

Cool (in every sense of the word), the cellar—kept at 57 degrees—is normally reserved exclusively for private events, but based on availability, it will be open for parties of two or more, Thursday through Sunday nights. Reservations can be made by clicking the ‘experiences are available’ link on OpenTable, or by calling LON’s at 602.955.7878. Seating is limited to 12 guests.


Options for mid-afternoon munchies or a bite in the bar just got bigger and better with some tantalizing additions, including Crab Cake Sliders, Denver Lamb Ribs, and the signature Stetson Burger. The Patagonian Shrimp Tacos, the Megargee Trio of corn chips, warm queso, guacamole and roasted salsa roja, and the ever-popular Cellar Board with a carafe of wine, are ideal for sharing, particularly during the extended summer happy hours, which are daily, from 3-7 pm, June 1 through September 10, 2023.


In 1923, the Stetson Hat Company commissioned what may be the most famous cowboy image of all time: The Last Drop From His Stetson, by Lon Megargee, which depicted a kindly cowboy kneeling to give his horse a drink of water from his upturned hat. It has become a hallmark of cowboy culture and an icon of the Stetson brand, as it has been imprinted on the lining of its upscale hats for the past 100 years. While the original oil painting hangs in Stetson’s New York City headquarters, a framed print adorns the hotel’s bar, aptly named LON’s Last Drop.

To commemorate the centennial, The Hermosa Inn will be celebrating with: 

  • 100th Anniversary Celebration Getaway: Book two nights in a deluxe casita and get a third night free. Valid April 2-May 28, 2023. 
  •  Tip Your Stetson and savor a signature Last Drop or Stetson cocktail for just $5, June 1 through September 10, 2023.

Consistently ranked by Conde Nast Traveler as one of the Top Hotels in the West and Southwest and ranked #2 in Arizona’s Ten Best Resorts in Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards 2022, the AAA Four Diamond Hermosa Inn is a jewel of a hideaway in the heart of the Valley. Nestled in an exclusive neighborhood in Paradise Valley and offering 43 luxurious casitas, The Hermosa Inn is just minutes from Scottsdale and its many attractions.

Handcrafted in the 1930s by cowboy artist Lon Megargee as his residence and art studio, the Inn’s adobe architecture has maintained its “authentic Arizona” character and charm which was instrumental in winning the 2019 and 2020 Stella Awards, the seal of excellence in the meetings industry, for Best Boutique Hotel in the Southwest Region. The 43 luxury guest casitas are nestled in a garden setting with breathtaking vistas of the lush desert and Camelback Mountain. Accommodations reflect the southwestern design of the original Casa Hermosa (beautiful house), and most include deep soaking tubs, beehive fireplaces and private patios, which have been praised in the 2019 TripSavvy Editors’ Choice Award for Romance and featured in the Hideaway Report, the highly curated site for exceptional experiences around the globe.

The culinary centerpiece is LON’s at the Hermosa, a AAA Four Diamond restaurant honored by Food & Wine magazine as Arizona's Most Romantic Restaurant, serving globally inspired Arizona fare. As one of Arizona’s premier restaurants, LON’s has repeatedly been lauded as one of the Top 100 Brunch Restaurants in America and 100 Most Romantic Restaurants in the United States by OpenTable. A recipient of Wine Spectator's 'Best of Award of Excellence' since 2015, the restaurant is complemented by a subterranean wine cellar, a celebrated outdoor dining patio, and its bar and casual dining counterpart, LON’s Last Drop, named after one of Megargee’s iconic paintings, many of which are displayed throughout the resort.
