In recent years, downtown Scottsdale’s Canal District has erupted into a cosmopolitan hot spot. Its most sizzling draw? Kazimierz World Wine Bar, a wine cave that showcases 250 kinds of grapes grown in more than 45 countries. Enter through the back, speakeasy style; claim a sofa by the candle-filled fireplace; and travel the world via wines from the U.S., Australia, France, and Italy, plus a few from less obvious wine countries such as Algeria and Romania. Choose from 100 wines by the glass, 3,200 by the bottle, and pair them with snacks like Egyptian flatbread pizza or pretzel sticks served with housemade Dijon mustard or cheese fondue.
