If you're looking to relax in a comfy atmosphere after a busy day of downtown sightseeing or shopping and dining on Fourth Avenue, make sure to visit Che's Lounge.

The wine list is quite extensive, featuring a good sampling of Chilean wines as well as Chardonnays and Merlots from California and France, and a glass of house wine is offered at a very reasonable price. Live musical entertainment featuring local bands is provided every Friday and Saturday nights and there's never a cover charge.

While the drinks quench your thirst, burgers, tamales, meatloafs and fried pickles are available to satiate your appetite. The prices are moderate, and service as well as the ambiance makes the Good Oak Bar worthy of every dollar spent.
Voted Best Cocktail Bar in the local media, The Shelter Cocktail Lounge has done everything to maintain its status as the first choice for martini drinkers in Tucson. Its beer bar serves nine different brands of microbrews, including Tucson's own Nimbus Brewery. If you are looking for mass-produced brews like Buds and Schlitz here, you better look elsewhere. Tt is famous for its kitsch decor dedicated to the celebrities of the 1960s. All in all, this is a great place to grab a drink and strike up a conversation.
Tucked away inside a former morgue (yes, morgue!), the Tough Luck Club seems to have found a way to uplift the spirits of its patrons - no pun intended! This lounge serves craft cocktails in its erstwhile morbid surroundings, and is accessible through the beer garden of Reilly's Craft Pizza & Drink. Besides cocktails, they also serve a single beer - the Coors. The interiors are mostly spartan, with a few booths lined against the wall and overhead wooden rafters adorning the ceiling. The dim ambiance is illuminated by a few hanging lights.
For a stylish night out, head to Scott & Co. in downtown Tucson. With brick walls, chandeliers and upholstered chairs, this spot has a strong speakeasy style, not to mention the cocktails to match. Their drink menu changes seasonally, and features modern twists on classic cocktails. And unlike many other bars in the area, Scott & Co. has a real quiet and laid back atmosphere that makes it easy to actually carry on a conversation.
