It's fun for people-watching, especially late at night, which is also the time of day when a Lumberjack Slam can seem like a great idea. There's a large show stage, a spacious patio, and a nicely decorated bar with videos, a jukebox and karaoke. There are also foam parties, touring drag stars, and of course, the neighboring Taqueria Los Yaquis taco stand. Bears, leather daddies, and blue-collar guys have long patronized this super-friendly, no-nonsense cruise bar near several other zero-attitude gay hangouts on North 7th Avenue. Pasco is located at the University of Arizona main gate. From lively DJ sets, drunken karaoke singalongs, and the soundtrack to just about any drag show in town, the score to most LGBTQ hangouts is pretty impressive. No Thanks Sign Up.
And then from downtown, it goes up through 4th Ave and on to the U of A main gate square area.
Please see the list below of gay bars that are currently open in Tucson: Thanks to Noel and Friday through Sunday. Although drawing mostly a gay and lesbian crowd, The Rock is popular with everybody when there's a fun and campy show scheduled.
A hipster favorite on Central a short drive north of downtown, Lux Coffee is renowned for its artisan-roasted coffee as well as fine teas and a nice selection of microbrew beers, well-chosen wines, and expertly poured cocktails.
