Integral to The Scout Guide Phoenix & Scottsdale’s mission is telling the stories behind the small businesses Scouted in each Volume. The story begins in print and continues online, after all. As you collect Volume 2, we are thrilled to continue our story-telling mission with Member Spotlights…

Meet Danielle Withycombe and Mary Butterfield, the Co-Founders behind Hydrate IV Bar, a wellness spa dedicated to keeping the Valley healthy and hydrated. After opening their first Arizona location in Arcadia, Danielle and Mary launched a Scottsdale location in short order. The demand for their health-boosting IV Therapy is high and their experience is unsurpassed.

Hydrate IV Bar eschews desert-chic vibes that defy the sterile aesthetic so common in the industry, and clients are met with equally warm – and deeply knowledgeable – staff. In short, it’s a place to unwind and invest in their health.

The Scout Guide Phoenix & Scottsdale: Danielle and Mary, we are thrilled you’ve joined us for Volume 2. To kick off our chat, can you share what inspired you to take the entrepreneurial leap?
Danielle & Mary: Danielle started to toy with the idea pre-Covid. After teaching yoga in the Valley for 13 years, Danielle reached out to the Denver-based founder of Hydrate IV, Katie Wafer, about bringing the concept to Arizona. Then, Covid hit. Danielle and Mary connected through yoga and during a yoga private, Mary rolled over after savasana and said, “this sounds like a fun idea, and I want to be your partner! Let’s bring Hydrate to Arizona.” The rest of 2020 was spent in full-blown creation mode!

The Scout Guide Phoenix & Scottsdale: What has been the best part about bringing Hydrate to Arizona?
Danielle & Mary: The health and wellness industry is thriving here in Phoenix and Scottsdale. We love being a part of that growth and creating a little sanctuary for people to step out of the hustle and into Hydrate.

The Scout Guide Phoenix & Scottsdale: Your presence in the Valley is expanding, and you recently opened a second location. Can you share more about the new Scottsdale location and what this means for Hydrate?
Danielle & Mary: Thank you, we are thrilled! It’s a beautiful, inviting space conveniently located to the Quarter’s shopping and dining options. Not only does this location introduce us to a whole new market, but it also allows us to connect with and bring wellness to more people.

The Scout Guide Phoenix & Scottsdale: Let’s talk about wellness… What are the benefits of IV therapy?
Danielle & Mary: Intravenous (IV) Therapy bypasses the gastrointestinal tract enabling 100% absorption of the included vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. This method quickly and effectively hydrates your body, offering a more energized, healthy you!

The Scout Guide Phoenix & Scottsdale: What types of IV Therapy do you provide?
Danielle & Mary: From immunity to athletic recovery, anti-aging to fatigue, we pride ourselves on serving a variety of health and wellness needs – including preventative and NAD+ IV Therapies. We also can customize our IV Therapy and Injections to each client, whether they’re experiencing symptoms of a cold or over-indulgence.

The Scout Guide Phoenix & Scottsdale: How often are IV Therapies recommended?
Danielle & Mary: Everyone is different and has unique needs, and factors like physical activity, nutrition, quality of sleep, and stress can all impact frequency. However, we’ve seen that consistency is key in experiencing the full-benefits of IV Therapy and have created membership options for those interested in incorporating IV Therapy into their wellness routines.

The Scout Guide Phoenix & Scottsdale: What can clients expect from a Hydrate IV experience?
Danielle & Mary: From the moment you walk into the spa you’ll feel the Zen vibes. Our friendly and professional team will help you identify the right services for your needs and help you settle into our relaxing loungers and start your treatment. Treatments take about 45 minutes. While we have many clients who use the opportunity to read or take a nap, we have plenty who make friends with fellow members!


“The desert is a constant reminder to stay resilient.”

The Scout Guide Phoenix & Scottsdale: What is the best part of your work?
Danielle & Mary: The opportunity to work with an amazing group of women and meet some of the nicest people around. We truly love what we do at Hydrate IV Bar, and we believe that this positivity radiates throughout the space into our guest’s experiences.

The Scout Guide Phoenix & Scottsdale: As we head into the hot summer months, do you have any tips to staying hydrated and healthy?
Danielle & Mary: When temps rise, our bodies are in a constant battle to stay hydrated. In addition to desert temps, we suffer from drinking a lot of filtered water, which is stripped of the salts and minerals that our bodies need to stay hydrated. Luckily, we specialize in hydration! Our hydration go-to starts with 1-liter saline with a selection of vitamins and “Cocktails” unique to Hydrate IV Bar. Come in and let us help you stay hydrated!

The Scout Guide Phoenix & Scottsdale: In addition to the need for Hydrate IV’s, how does the Valley influence you and your business?
Danielle & Mary: The desert is a constant reminder to stay resilient!

The Scout Guide Phoenix & Scottsdale: Let’s talk more about the Valley. Or, more specifically, your Valley. What are your favorite local spots and experiences?
Danielle & Mary: There are so many! From shopping at urbAna to dinner at The Jade Bar at The Sanctuary, visiting the Musical Instrument Museum to attending Barrett Jackson Car Show!

The Scout Guide Phoenix & Scottsdale: How do you give back to the community? Are there any local charities or organizations near and dear to your hearts?
Danielle & Mary: Again, there are so many philanthropic organizations doing important work in the Valley. To support them, we have a charity component built into our Katie Cocktail. $5 of every “Katie” goes to a cause we identify each quarter.

The Scout Guide Phoenix & Scottsdale: Finally, we’d like to end our chat by looking ahead. Is there anything on the radar for Hydrate IV Bar that our readers should know about?
Danielle & Mary: Yes! We’re planning our third location – stay tuned!

Whether you’re interested in a Shot Pass or Myers Cocktail, visit Hydrate IV Bar Scottsdale or Arcadia to relax, recharge, and refresh your routine. Just don’t forget to tell them Scout sent you!
