Old West Charm and Real History
The Rusty Spur is the oldest of Scottsdale bars, now celebrating its 60th year in business. It was Scottsdale’s first ever saloon. The building is an officially registered historic landmark that used to be the Farmers’ Bank of Scottsdale. Now the money’s gone and the vault’s filled with liquor.
Lots of people visit the Rusty Spur just to take in the décor. Few Phoenix bars offer quite the same feeling. It’s not just a tourist trap either; the locals also love it and that includes real cowboys. The Rusty Spur is a refreshing change from the posh shops and restaurants that surround it.
Our building was constructed in 1921 and housed the Farmer’s State Bank of Scottsdale from 1921 until 1933 when it closed on March 2nd for a ‘bank holiday’ called by Governor B. B. Moeur. The bank never reopened. The bank vault remains in place and has been converted to a refrigerated unit for beverage storage.
Scottsdale’s LAST REAL COWBOY SALOON. Registered historic landmark, Farmers Bank of Scottsdale 1921-1931, closed during the Depression, but the old bank vault is still there, holding liquor instead of money. Known as one of the three happiest places in the U.S. – Disneyland, Las Vegas, and the Rusty Spur Saloon… ‘Where the party never ends!!!’ Patronized by John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Jennifer Aniston, Vince Vaughn, Dierks Bentley, and John Rich (Big & Rich). Our commitment is hospitality and live entertainment every afternoon and evening – Russ Reiter, Psychobilly Rodeo, Mike Lennon, Jan Carritt. Country Western, Blues, Rockabilly. Serving lunch only 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Main Street – ‘Old Town Scottsdale’
