Tucson Nightlife

Popular Places

  • El Presidio Plaza
  • Univ of Arizona
  • convention center
  • With a large college-age population and strong tourism industry, Tucson boasts an active nightlife scene. On any given night, the bars and clubs on Fourth Avenue and along Congress Avenue in downtown Tucson are filled with people laughing, drinking, and enjoying live music.

    Our top pick is Club Congress for its long-standing history as the nexus of downtown nightlife. This energetic club, downstairs from the historic Hotel Congress, often hosts major touring acts. Directly across the street from Club Congress, our number two pick, the Rialto Theatre, is another major point of nightlife interest. The Theatre is the city's most important venue when it comes to the best rock, pop, and hip hop acts.

    For a slightly more relaxed night out, check out the Sky Bar on Fourth Avenue. This astronomy-themed bar projects shows nightly on large LCD screens. Hypnotic, images of colorful, swirling galaxies somehow serve as the perfect backdrop for relaxing, late-night conversation.

    If you're looking to get up and close with your dancing partner, our number 10 pick, El Parador Restaurant, hosts live music and popular salsa dancing nights on the weekends.
