MacMillan is also the Culinary Advisor at Camelback Mountain Sanctuary in Paradise Valley. In previous food reports, I covered the Elements restaurant and the Jade Bar at the Sanctuary. MacMillan has created absolute culinary power from a kitchen at Elements with Chef Samantha Sanz, and a solid bar background led by Bar Chef Christiaan Röllich. Familiar with MacMillan’s culinary caliber, I have no doubt that Cala will be a top-notch dining experience.

“Cala is a place that guests won’t want to leave; it’s vibrant with great energy creating an immersive environment with an experience that offers something for everyone, ”said MacMillan. “We have intentionally created a modern establishment with a perfectly organized vibe and accessible food that is incredibly well-crafted alongside unforgettable cocktails.”

MacMillan is Director of Culinary Operations for The Clive Collective, a Scottsdale-based hotel sales group and more. Together, they recently opened Money Baby! at Virgin hotels in Las Vegas.

During a recent trip to Vegas, I discovered Money, Baby! and I have to say that the sports viewing, the interactive games, the high quality and the ingenious designs behind their food were a highlight of the trip. When it comes to serving an exemplary dining experience, the Clive Collective and Beau MacMillan are at the forefront.

“We’re not doing anything fundamental in the concepts we envision at Clive Collective,” said Mikis Troyan, co-founder and managing partner of Clive Collective. “We are constantly on the lookout for awesome opportunities that will truly impress customers, from the environment to food and drink, service and entertainment. Cala will be like nothing else in Scottsdale and we look forward to creating memorable experiences for our guests.

Cala will open on January 21 and is currently accepting reservations. For more information about Cala, or to book, Click here.
