Sky Bar's shtick is that you can look through 3 different telescopes with a local astronomer pretty much every clear night except Sunday. Which by itself is pretty cool. Add 20 (count 'em) excellent beers on tap ranging from $3.50 to $5.50 a glass, local musical talent most nights, and the BEST sandwich deal on earth: the Wop. At $6.00... More

If you want a view of the seediest and funkiest 4th Ave bar, stop in to Sky Bar. $1 wells from 12:00 am to 12:15 am (really, 15 min) but good. It's funky but also reasonably harmless.

We've been here twice, but never stayed long. It's a large establishment, but few people. Both times were during the day, so perhaps people only go here at night. Didn't get much of a positive feeling for the place.

Atmosphere was a little odd but we expected that and that's why we went. It attracts an fun and diverse bunch. The sofas were nice and the bar tenders were some of the most efficient and best multitaskers I've met. Their mixed drink menus were fun and tasty. However, not that I was looking to get hammered, but after 3... More

coffee shop by day, bar by night - with local students usually there with dobsonian telescopes out for viewing. be sure to tip them. i make sure to stop by whenever i'm in town, nothing like sipping a fresh sour-mix-free margarita while looking at saturn's rings. check out their calendar online if you're interested in the telescopes.

This is a cool spot to hit on Tucson's infamous 4th ave. Be aware though, during the academic year, it is largely a college bar and you can expect loud music and young crowds. That said, I still like to hit this place a few times/year. They frequently have telescopes set up outside so you can get a great view... More

Pleasant place with nice outdoor seating and attentive wait staff. Good for burgers and a beer. We like the outdoor seating with great view of sunset or the city at night. The breeze keeps it cool enough even in June at night to sit out side, no misters. We go there weekly with friends. Last week they raved about the... More

Pretty great bar with a unique astronomy theme. Dancing here can be a lot fun too! It's also quite roomy inside compared to other bars and there are large tables that are quite convenient for bigger groups of people. Also the pizza right next door is some of the best in town (same owner)!

My friends and I don't like the "bar scene" very much, but we love going here. Sky Bar is a fun place to just hang out or dance when they have the dance floor open.
