Arizona icon Greasewood Flat closes doors, auctions memorabilia

Posted: Updated:

Iconic Valley restaurant and bar Greasewood Flat is riding into the sunset on March 31. After 40 years of Wild West escapades, the Scottsdale spot is closing their doors and giving patrons the chance to own a part of their quirky history.

Local auction company Sam Auctions is hosting a public auction event on Saturday, April 11 where they will sell many of the rustic treasures from one of the oldest bars in Arizona. The auction event will run from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.

Visitors will have the chance to win money from the famed "money room," which is rumored to have more than $5,000 in signed dollar bills hanging from the ceiling. Raffle tickets for are $1 each, and proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Phoenix Children's Hospital.

Greasewood Flat began its journey as an old bunkhouse building in the middle of the DC Ranch, which ranged over thousands of acres of Sonoran Desert in the late 1800s. Over the last century, the desert has developed into one of the most affluent areas of Scottsdale. Since then, Greasewood Flat has grown into one of the last bastions of Old West Scottsdale, with its outdoor dance floor, corrals full of burros, rustic wagons, fire pits, and cast of characters all contributing to an atmosphere that compels you to kick up your heels.
