Established in 2017 and located in the 5th Avenue Boutiques in Downtown Scottsdale, Mini Social was born after the initial creation of our children’s boutique, Zoolikins. Zoolikins was opened in effort to create a special community store for the biggest change of life; becoming a parent. Our founder wanted to create a place that fostered mom-to-mom support and friendship, and provided guidance that is sometimes hard to find in a city that has so many families that come and go.
After creating these relationships through Zoolikins with our local families since 2010, we found ourselves wanting to bridge together the community of young families even more. Thus, Mini Social was born. Our mission at Mini Social is to offer a space that brings our community of parents and like-minded individuals together, while also offering our space to other members of our community to host their own events.
Here at Mini Social, we are an indoor, kid-friendly, multi-use venue. During the day, we cater to little ones aged five years and younger by offering drop-in play, classes, and events . During the evening and weekend hours, we are the newest place to host your own private event or photo shoot.
Mini Social is known for it’s daytime drop-in play. Our bright and sunny playroom was designed for children up to five years of age. Our space is an open layout, making it easy to always see your little one.
With delicious menu service from The Herb Box and Cartel’s cold brew on tap, you can relax while your children play in our safe and comfortable environment. At Mini Social, you tend to feel at home with free wi-fi, comfortable seating, and dining areas. Children love our variety of toys, with books, blocks, dress-up, fort building, interactive-electronic floor game, pretend kitchen play sets, and more. Your kids will be busy while you relax, socialize, and enjoy a bite to eat.
During the evenings and weekends, Mini Social is the perfect quaint and artistic venue to host your private event or photo shoot. With bright natural lighting and an open space of nearly 3,000 square feet, it is perfect to leave the space as-is, or to decorate exactly how you like.
With the ability to accommodate up to 50 guests, Mini Social is great for birthday parties, baby showers, large group dining, or business meetings. You will receive private access to our entire front room, complete with a dining area and comfortable sitting areas. Each private rental also includes access to our private back kitchen. Plus, we have a list of vendors to make party planning a breeze!
Classes & Events
With our ever-changing classes for both parents & baby, there is something for everyone. Our goal is to offer a variety of classes surrounding play and learning for little ones, while also offering educational parenting classes for parents and caregivers with topics such as sleep, potty training, breastfeeding, and more.
Apart from educational classes, sometimes we just want to have fun! In the past, we’ve partnered with other major brands such as Bumkins, Lillebaby, Bravado, PLAY, Alice & Ames, MINDR, and more to host private and public shopping events, product launch parties, and cocktail evenings.
