Although most of Tucson's nightlife scene is centered around downtown and the Fourth Avenue district, you'll find that midtown is full of spots for grabbing a drink or dancing with friends.
If country music is your thing, head to Maverick, a country western-themed nightlife spot featuring live country music, dancing, and friendly staff. The club regularly hosts live music and dance lessons, so you can easily two-step the night away with friends.
For friendly ambiance in a unique setting, check out The Canyon's Crown Restaurant and Pub, a British-style sports bar and pub featuring a rotating selection of draft beers and elevated pub fare. The bar carries sports matches from around the world, making this a good place to watch international matches.
Looking for a good cocktail? Head to Sidecar in midtown, where the knowledgeable bar staff knows how to make a good drink. The menu emphasizes Prohibition-style cocktails in a hip but unpretentious setting.
Meanwhile, over at Thunder Canyon Brewery, you can enjoy locally crafted brews in a friendly tap-room with fellow craft beer enthusiasts.
If you love a good show, check out The Gaslight Theatre on Broadway Boulevard. The theater features a popular, old timey, Western saloon-themed show. Laugh, drink and enjoy dinner with friends.
