Opening: Cottontail Lounge

W Scottsdale is welcoming 2021 with a fresh new venue at its rooftop WET Deck: Cottontail Lounge. Replacing the hotel’s former Shade Lounge, Cottontail Lounge is a sophisticated space where bold design meets with unrivaled hospitality and service, and creative cocktails showcasing the evolution of modern mixology.

Cottontail Lounge provides a next-level mixology experience with a flirty and fun atmosphere for a bold W feel. Guests will step into an exclusive corner of the W Scottsdale WET Deck, with sweeping pool views, shaded outdoor seating and a refined atmosphere tempered with playful design choices. Decked out in vibrant natural hues, the Cottontail Lounge features an organic, undulating layout celebrating the desert landscape. Local elements inform the color palette, with deep warm olive, black, white and gray hues accented with living greenery, distressed rope, and a custom skylight ceiling trellised with hanging vines. The lounge’s design honors the Arizona Jackrabbit and plays off multiple rabbits found throughout W Scottsdale, from pillows to statues and decals showcasing boundary-pushing bunnies.

This new space at W Scottsdale is set to be a favorite for sunset cocktails, brunch with friends, private events and small gatherings. Cottontail Lounge can accommodate up to 55 guests a time with an 18-seat raised platform, a 28-seat bar, and comfortable booths, sofas, and tables scattered throughout stylish interiors and a shaded outdoor terrace. A custom DJ booth is built into the outdoor seating area, inviting guests to mix and mingle with visiting musical talent and local DJ’s.

Cottontail Lounge is open 10AM-12AM Sunday-Wednesday and 10AM-2AM Thursday-Saturday, serving breakfast, weekend brunch, creative cocktails and light bites.

Due to Covid-19, several strict measures are in place at Cottontail Lounge to ensure the safety of guests, including capacity restrictions, tables spaced six feet apart, enhanced outdoor airflow, and plexiglass installations between booths.

Cottontail Lounge is set on the second-floor rooftop adjacent to the WET Deck at W Scottsdale, located at 7277 E Camelback Rd, Scottsdale, AZ 85251. For more information about the trendsetting Arizona hotel, visit
