In Sedona, there’s no shortage of bars, pubs, taverns and lounges to check out, no matter what scene you’re into. Start at The Sundowner, a local favorite where the menu is expansive, the drinks are strong, and you’ll get that special Sedona hospitality like no other. The Olde Sedona Bar and Grill is a great place for dinner and late night drinks, famous for their amazing views and delicious chili. For a real taste of the southwest, it’s an absolute must and pairs perfectly with all their beers on tap.
Mariposa Steak and Seafood Grill is another top choice for dinner and drinks. However, if you want more of a quaint, pub feel, head to Mooney’s Irish Pub where darts, late night bites and ice cold brews await. The Cowboy Club is a steakhouse where you can also enjoy a fine cocktail or craft brew of your choice.
Talk about a Nightcap!
At the Open Range Bar and Tavern, you can enjoy southwestern fare with an impressive drinks list. Saltrock is a favorite local bar, open late and where many locals wind down. Check out Vino di Sedona for craft beer, fine local wines, and pub food that will make you feel right at home.
Most in Sedona like to pair their drinking with a great steak, whether it’s at Relics Restaurant & Roadhouse or the Oak Creek Brewery & Grill where the brewpub is upstairs for fantastic views.

Sedona does dessert right, with restaurants famous for their last courses and dessert-only shops popping up like cacti! Go to Sedona Cake Couture where cake is more than the best indulgence ever—it’s a lifestyle (and it looks good doing it!). Wildflower Bread Company is a laid back café and patisserie where you can satisfy your sweet tooth in more ways than you can imagine (pro tip: Make sure to pair it with one of their strong cups of java).
There’s a Coldstone Creamery in town if you’re in the mood for something chilly and familiar. At Sedona Memories Bakery Café, you can sit and indulge in every patisserie option imaginable. Judi’s Restaurant and Lounge is a classic Americana diner and surf and turf destination, but is also incredibly well known locally for their extensive dessert menu.
Last Thing First!
You’re on vacation, so make the most of it! Every day, a complimentary breakfast buffet is available to guests, including your favorite sweet eats like waffles, muffins, croissants and more. Alternatively, you can go to Sedona Sweet Arts and discover what local baking wizards have whipped up.
Zainey’s Frozen Yogurt is a great way to beat the AZ heat, and the ChocolaTree is a must for that cacao fix. Try Black Cow Café for a morning pick-me-up, or Oh My Ganache! for a once in a lifetime dessert with all the trimmings.
