I'm scheduled for a conference in Scottsdale in October at the J. W. Marriott Camelback Inn, which is non-smoking, of course. Two questions: a) is there anywhere to smoke in Scottsdale and b) are there any good pipe stores in the area? Thanks in advance if anyone can help.

Here are the shops I do business with in the local area. IMHO the Tinderbox is the best one followed by Ye Olde (who just moved into their new digs on 24th St.). I really can't help you on good places to smoke (Bars, restaurants, etc. as I live on the far west side of the Phoenix area). Hope this helps.

Tinderbox International (Paul Buza is the owner. Probably best "pipe" oriented store in Phoenix) Has a club you can join and areas in the main store for relaxing and smoking. On outer ring of Fiesta Mall off of Southern.
1457 W. Southern Ave. Suite 110
Mesa, Arizona 85202

The next two stores are owned by the same guy, Rick Hopkins. They both give the Tinderbox a run for their money. They both have a smoking lounge.

I can vouch for the Tinderbox International and Ye Olde though as Mike said Tinderbox Int. is the better (much) of the two. It is not your typical Tinderbox by any stretch of the imagination! If you only have time for one make sure you go to the Tinderbox.
