Western Wear Shops in Scottsdale

If you’ve ever wanted to be a cowgirl or cowboy – or at least dress the part – mosey on over to downtown Scottsdale. You can shop for the latest in Western wear and then head out for a taste of the Wild West while showing off your new duds.

Head ‘Em Up

Rancher Hat Bar
This boutique and custom hat shop specializes in Western wear that’s always stylish and always on trend. But the highlight of any visit is the ability to personalize your own hat! Choose from more than 70 hat styles and colors, select your own bands, charms and accessories, and relax in the lounge while your hat is being made.

Scottsdale Fashion Square
Find all your favorite premium denim at Scottsdale Fashion Square, the Southwest’s largest retail destination offering more than 250 shops, designer boutiques and department stores. Don't miss the Levi's Store, AG Jeans, 7 for All Mankind, Johnny Was and Lucky Brand for inspired, fashionable tops and jeans that will look great on the dance floor. 

Maverick’s Western Wear
Located on Old Town’s Main Street, Maverick’s offers upscale Western wear for both men and women. Find your perfect top-to-bottom look from stylish apparel, turquoise jewelry and belt buckles to finely crafted hats, boots and leather jackets.


Move ‘Em Out

Rusty Spur Saloon
Housed in a former 1920s bank, Rusty Spur Saloon is a true Western gem where cowgirls can join local cowboys and celebrities (Blake Shelton, Vince Vaugh and Jennifer Aniston are said to be fans) to knock back some suds and dance to live music seven days and nights a week.

Handlebar J Restaurant & Saloon
If your cowtown night includes live country music and line dancing, scoot your boots on over to Handlebar J Restaurant & Saloon. The legendary Herndon Brothers Band and other local musical talents and deejays take the stage every Friday and Saturday night to play all your favorite country tunes. You also can tune-up your two-step with $5 dance lessons (check the website for current days and times). 

Porter's Western Saloon
Located in a historic Old Town building that housed Scottsdale's first post office from 1929 to 1949, Porter's greets you with rustic brick walls, crystal chandeliers and craft cocktails like the El Diablo, Sonoran Sunset and Postmaster. Have trouble finding Porter's? Just look for General, the giant horse on the second story balcony above the bar's Brown Avenue entrance.

LON's Last Drop Bar at the Hermosa Inn
LON's Last Drop Bar at the Hermosa Inn combines a classic Western ambiance with a contemporary take on a night out. Pair cocktails like the signature Last Drop or Cowboy's Dream with tasty shareable plates like Poutine, Beef Sliders and Fried Brussels Sprouts with capers, whipped feta and honey.
