restaurants 4th of July

Just wanting to know if all restaurants and bars are packed on 4th of July or are most people at the special events and fireworks? We are wanting to go for a happy hour drinks and then out to dinner all in the Scottsdale area. Do happy hour still exist on a holiday like this and i assume places like macys and the outlets are shut on this day?

thank you

Stores are open and having holiday sales. As many people as can make it have left town for cooler climates. Getting a table at a bar or restaurant will not be difficult.

I agree, it's pretty quiet on the holiday since most people travel. You won't have any trouble.

Most years the 4th of July is a ghost town in PHX. This is the big family vacation time to get out of town for residents. The freeway to San Diego will be busiest place in AZ leading up to the 4th.
