The Sky Bar describes itself as "a Solar Powered Cafe by Day, Astronomy Bar by Night." This pretty much sums up the theory behind this quirky bar on Fourth Avenue. The bar projects nightly astronomy shows and deep space images caught by the establishment's own telescopes on large LCD screens. Tucson has a long history as a center of planetary study, so what might seem an odd theme for bar makes perfect sense here. Plus, the hypnotizing, celestial images provide the perfect backdrop for enjoying the bar's offerings, which includes an impressive selection of imported bottled beers.
