Martini Ranch closing in Scottsdale after 19 years

SCOTTSDALE, AZ - Martini Ranch in Scottsdale announced Friday it's closing later this month.

The nightclub provided live music and entertainment for 19 years near Scottsdale Road and Drinkwater Boulevard.

The doors will close on Sunday, Oct. 13 after a Columbus Day event, according to the business.

Since opening in October 1994, the venue has featured popular music artists, including Bruno Mars, Kid Rock, Surgar Ray, The Cranberries and Kings of Leon.

The company said their venue, The Shaker Room, will be closing as well.

"We wish to extend our gratitude to our amazing patrons," a spokesperson wrote in a news release.

The announcement comes months after a man was stabbed multiple times while leaving Martini Ranch on June 24.

At the beginning of the year, a former Arizona State University football player was also stabbed while working as a bouncer at Martini Ranch on Jan. 27. He died due to his injuries.

ABC15 reached out to the business, and the owner did not have an immediate comment as to why they're closing.
