The patio's the place to be at this noted neighborhood bar and cafe at the southern tip of the Fourth Avenue area. Lush, leafy greenery, a trickling fountain, and low-light lanterns create an inviting ambiance of intimacy. Inside, the bar is lively and the billiards competitive. One of the area's largest selections of imported beers is offered. This is a place where regulars congregate frequently and, sooner or later, anyone who's anyone in Tucson drops by.
Opened in 1991 in the center of Tucson's Fourth Avenue district, this has quickly become one of the most popular night spots among UA students and twenty-somethings. Television sets are scattered about, normally showing sporting events or ESPN, but every hour or so, movie clips like the "Royale and Cheese" episode from Pulp Fiction or when Will Smith first gets his sunglasses in Men In Black are played. The joke is: who watches television or reads in a place like this anyway? The kitchen is open from 11a-10p. Burgers and fries, chicken sandwiches, buffalo-style hot wings, Caesar salad (all the sports bar staples) are offered. Dozens of beer selections are available.
Here is the one and only truly Irish bar in Tucson (though there are others who claim to be). This is where you want to be on St. Patrick's Day. On all other days, it's a good place to start the bar-hopping that takes place at the many drinking establishments on Fourth Avenue. There is live music here Thursday, Friday and Saturdays. It is suggested you call ahead for details. The fare is simple but hearty, including sandwiches, pizza and hamburgers. And yes, the supply of Guinness is abundant.
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.
Considered Tucson's favorite live-music destination and burlesque performance space, Surly Wench Pub is a veritable one-stop-shop when it comes to entertainment.

The bar has daily specials that feature hand-crafted cocktails at a great price, scrumptious bar-bites, karaoke, theme-nights and regular events make this place one of the hippest spots in town.
