One of the oldest country western bars in Tucson is Maverick, which not-so-humbly describes itself as the King of Clubs. But it's not just empty boasting. Maverick is modern honky tonk with a spacious dance floor where you can take a lesson in two-stepping, enjoy toe-tapping live music from upcoming country artists, and even enjoy gourmet bar eats. How many places offer all that?
If you're looking for a friendly neighborhood bar with a jukebox full of country classics and hits, head over to the Cow Pony Bar & Grill. Put a couple of quarters in the jukebox, grab an ice-cold beer and make yourself at home at this local tavern. The bar also features live music every week, including an open mic night where you can hear up-and-coming local talent.
Just north of Tucson in the small scenic community of Oracle, the Oracle Inn Steakhouse serves up juicy steaks, stiff drinks, and live music for your listening pleasure. Fans of authentic country music will enjoy hearing some of the region's brightest local performers.
If you want to take a step back in time, pay a visit to the Pinnacle Peak Steakhouse and Silver Dollar Saloon, located at Traildust Town, a Western-themed park on Tucson's east side. Here you can enjoy your steak and then head next door to drink a historically accurate Western saloon.
