The newest bar in Scottsdale’s entertainment district is trying to offer different experiences to daytime and evening customers.

Dakota, which is slated to open Dec. 26 at 7301 E. Indian Plaza, will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner starting at 7 a.m. until 10 p.m. It’s menu focuses on local and organic food. But when the sun goes down, Dakota will transform into a club that features LED lighting, live DJs, video projection screens and bottle service. The bar will stay open until 2 a.m.

Dakota is owned by Triyar Entertainment Group, a division of Triyar Companies LLC. Triyar operates a number of bars in Scottsdale’s entertainment district and in Old Town Scottsdale.

“We are excited to bring this new hybrid concept to the bustling Scottsdale Entertainment District,” said Shawn Yari, managing partner for Triyar Companies. “Dakota will add a true dining experience unlike anything else in this growing area. Our goal is to inspire entrepreneurs to bring their dining expertise to contribute and diversify what has become the nightlife hub in Scottsdale.”

The 4,500-square-foot Dakota will also feature a cafe named Comoncy, which will offer a variety of coffee and premade sandwiches and salads. The cafe will operate from 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day.
