This is where the Rocky Horror Picture Show freaks liquor up on Saturday nights, among other theatergoers at the neighboring Loft Cinema. During the day, it is usually a local yokel joint. It's spacious, with typically southwestern wooden paneling, a jukebox, a few old video arcade games, torn leather booths and a few tables in the center of the room. A variety of burgers and sandwiches are available: bacon cheeseburgers, jalapeno burgers, mushroom swiss burgers, barbecue beef sandwiches and chicken melts.
This place is one of the favorite hangouts for University of Arizona coeds and others, as it serves the famous Bison Witches Bloody Mary, a drink consumed in large quantities by droves of hungover college students on Sundays. That's part of the Fourth Avenue tradition. Another reason to visit this bar is speedy service, plus the legendary overstuffed deli sandwiches. It's not easy to find a seat during lunch hour, and even more difficult during Happy Hour, when skilled bartenders serve up a good selection of vodkas, tequilas and bourbons. So be prepared to wait a little for the Great Happy Hour Special, but be assured it'll be worth it. This place opens daily at 11am.
Fashioned after an old-town public house, the Union Public House is just that. Replete with all the accouterments that go into making a pub, except with a more modern approach, this family-friendly pub serves local brews and whiskey, alongside delicious pub-grub that you can't keep your hands off. To add to that, there are TV screens for when your favorite game is on. Happy hours continue late into the night, when locals still trickle in for some of their famous French Dip Sliders and Cabbage Wraps. Mornings bring hearty brunches, while an alfresco dining area lets you sit in the morning sun mull over the day to come.
