Olive and Ivy includes a market, bar/lounge, restaurant and patio. The main entrance puts you in the small market, which has a bakery counter on one side and an open cooler unit on the other. The cooler has a good selection of white wine and champagne, as well as a bunch of "cool" water, flavored water, vitamin water, etc. They have a hostess kind of hanging out in there to escort restaurant guests through market and across the bar to the hostess stand.
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.
