American Junkie's Grand Reopening

After more than five years in operations, the proprietors of American Junkie in Scottsdale decided to give the bar and nightspot an entirely new groove. As such, they gave it an expansive makeover over the summer that included urban art murals around and above its two bars, a roomier layout, different games and distractions out on the patio, and many new-fangled HDTVs that broadcast sports action during the day and music video mixes at night.

We eagerly scoped out the scene at the soft opening of the new "Junkie 2.0" on Saturday, August 23, and were greeted with all manner of nightlife hijinks, including drinking, dancing, and even some fire-breathing bartenders. No fooling.
