Canal Restaurant in Scottsdale blends fine dining, fashion and entertainment
This downtown Scottsdale district stretches along the south side of the revamped Arizona Canal on west Stetson?Drive. The creation of developer Fred Unger, Southbridge is a $41 million urban, pedestrian-friendly development notable?because it only has independently-owned boutiques and restaurants; there are no chains. Along with the Scottsdale Waterfront, it is one of the newest downtown Scottsdale revitalization projects. Although it is only 3 acres, Southbridge packs a lot into a few blocks. Part of the Southbridge Scottsdale district overlooks the Waterfront?park, its tree-lined sidewalks and open air courtyards give it a European flair. The Southbridge Scottsdale retail area is called The Mix. This bi-level center is an eclectic collection of shops.
