Best places to watch a sunset in Phoenix

Want a true Phoenix experience? Make sure to catch one of our spectacular sunsets, which paint the desert sky on a nightly basis. We know the best places to see a Phoenix sunset and are happy to let you in on the secret.

South Mountain

Head up to Dobbins Point on South Mountain (you can drive there) and take in sunset views of the downtown Phoenix skyline from the top of the largest municipal park in the U.S.

Lustre Bar at the Hotel Palomar Phoenix

A great place to catch a sunset before a night out downtown, Lustre Bar has a hip and comfortable atmosphere, which is made even cooler by its poolside lounge seating.

Compass Arizona Grill

When you make a reservation, ask for a table by the window to take full advantage of the 360-degree view at Arizona’s only revolving rooftop restaurant.

Desert Botanical Garden 

Arrive early to explore the beautiful Desert Botanical Garden, then top off your visit by watching the sun set against a backdrop of desert flora and red-rock peaks.

Four Season Resort Scottsdale at Troon North

End your day with a margarita in hand on the large and comfortable patio at Four Seasons Resort. This elevated perch (which is 1,000 feet higher than downtown Phoenix) offers picture-perfect views of sunset-warmed Pinnacle Peak.

  1. I would also add Orange Sky at the Talking Stick Resort and Elements at the Sanctuary to the list.

  2. Great List! I would also add Rusty Putter Bar/Grill patio at the Las Sendas Golf Club. And we’ve had so many clouds recently, the sunsets have been spectacular. Love our Arizona scenery!

  3. The Tapatio Grill at the Pointe Hilton in N. Central Phoenix is awesome.
