We went there last month and checked out the band, Section 8 Trio. The place was sorta laid back but the band was hot. The bartender was great, the place was clean.
I reccomend you should check it out especially if those guys are playing there!!
ZERO dancers , expected music, lousy mixed drink prices, The 'owner' was outside the club....claiming 'they' sold the place a long time ago.....(meaning the asian woman I met at least 2 yrs ago) DARK dank , uninviting.....The 'owner' was NOT friendly , had to answer his cell phone, and acted very defensive when I approached the entrance to the joint. This is just days after the SHOOTING, in which two employees were shot by some freak who , yes, got away. It was a mexican male as the local news reported. This place seems rather hostile because of this.
Unless this place was rebuilt, this place is a fire trap with ancient wiring, mold everywhere and bathrooms that need to be rebuilt. Last winter the bathroom floors were underwater.
Music can be good, but the bar is a dump.
Anyone who gave this place 5 stars must work there.
My girlfriend will never go there again and we love to dance. We call this place, 'The Sewer's Edge.'
I have been listening to bands in Tucson for 35 yrs, and 80's and Gents is one of the best cover bands I have heard. Yes, they use a little canned background stuff but they have to in order to pull off some of the songs they do for a four piece. gary
Nothing will replace the old original joint on 29th.
This is great venue for bands to play. The staff is very respectful of the musicians, it's just nice to be treated like an artist instead of a human jukebox. Always a diverse crowd, great drinks, and a very fun relaxed atmosphere.
The forecast for Better Days on Thursday, April 1: Temperatures in the late 70's to early 80's with a chance of the Human League.
3 DJs play nothing but vinyl, no MP3s, no CDs, no lazerdiscs - obscure underground dance classics for the whole family!
Italo, Minimal, Cold Wave, NDW, Synthpunk, Electro, Early Industrial, Darkwave, etc....
quirkfiend seems to have a problem with Margarita Bay. I myself have had to wait to sing songs (even though I am a regular), but that is because they usually have quite a crowd. The reason they have a crowd is because it is a fun place to hang out. I think it's odd that quirkfiend was on her second song (11th in line on the first song) and only half way through a soda. Sorry folks, but if you're 11th (and skipped several times), by the time you get to your second song, you've probably waited well over an hour. Long time for just half a soda....hmmm. Great place. Great people.
MIKE HELPED US OUT ONE NIGHT AT BERKYS WHEN MILT GOT THROWN IN THE SLAMMER. HE CAN PLAY JUST BOUT ANYTHING.
All 3 DJs play vinyl-only obscurities from the 70's & 80's: Disco, Post-Punk, Coldwave, Synthpop, Electro, Italo, Early Industrial & Goth, 80's Detroit Techno & Chicago House. A veritable smorgasbord of synthetic weirdness to please the kiddies. Dancing is encouraged.
GRIND is the band playing this Saturday Feb 27 and, they are AMAZING!!!! You have to go see these guys and gal, the singer is the best in Tucson and, the band is so much fun. The sticker contest was off the hook...just come to see it.lol.
THANKS TO FAMOUS SAMS FOR GIVING US A SPOT EVERY MONTH FOR THE LAST 4 YEARS. IT HAS GIVEN US GREAT EXPERIENCE. WHEN BERKYS FOLDED AND SKIRTS CUTBACK THEY WERE THERE FOR THE BANDS AND FANS OF (YES)................ R & R MUSIC. THANKS FAMOUS SAMS
Can the person who handles the bands at this location please, please hire someone who can play different types of music. I have lived 2 miles from you for ten years and never seen or heard anything but R&R bands in your place, enough already...Just Will
Flyznest really missed out by not being adventurous enough to go to the VIP room. That’s one of the best things about this bar. I had seen the bikini sign occasionally while driving by, but never had the time to stop in. Then one night I wanted to go out and remembered the bikini sign. I’m glad I stopped in before reading flyznest’s review. I felt comfortable as soon as I walked in. It has a relaxed no pressure atmosphere. In the other clubs around town, they kick you out if you don’t buy a drink within the first few minutes. I did buy a few drinks after a while (without any pressure from within) and they were very reasonably priced. The girls are very friendly and came up to chat with me right away. In the other clubs, you could be there for over an hours without getting noticed. When asked if I wanted a dance, I thought, what the heck, give it a try. I’m glad I did. The girls dance way better than anything you’ll get at the big clubs around town. When flyznest said they were generally fairly skilled go-go dancers, he wasn’t kidding. I’ve been back several times now, and plan to go back more. I won’t waist my time at the big clubs anymore, now that I’ve found the November Cabaret. 1-13-2010
I have had some great nights here I would say it is the best on 4th Plus they have an Oregon banner Go Ducks!
You have to end your 4th ave night at Che's always the best place to grab the last drinks of the night
Thunderous karaoke sound system, large song selection with the best versions, friendly, attentive sound operators and of course the most awesome bartender is just the begining on Mondays at the Bashful Bandit 3686 E. Speepway. The theme is Rite of Passage. Guys, see if you can make the punch bag machine go over 700 points. That is the required minimum for manhood status. Ladies, get the croud to make some noise while working the pole to achieve womanhood status.
I ate lunch with my family and it was great..... Cindy the waitress rocks...
