My wife and I went to the Original Hideout last Saturday night to meet our friends. Never having been there, we were a little worried with all the stories we've heard throughout the years... Well, let me put your mind at ease! As we pulled into the parking lot it was apperent this is the place to be on Saturday nights. It was a full lot. As we traversed the lot for the third time a security gaurd met us and directed us to a spot. I thought it very nice of the fellow. As we walked up to the door, there was quite a few people outside, we could here the music playing inside. It was a hot and muggy night, but inside was dark and cool. It was a packed house so we slowly made our way to the bar, three bartenders at the ready taking orders from the crowd, soon a beautiful bartender took our order and off we went to find our party. We found our friends at a table right off the dance floor, we squeezed in and enjoyed our drinks as the band started their second set of the night. Let me just say at this juncture, Los Bandidos, (house band for the 11 years, I later found out) is so great... they have the crowd jumping on the dance floor. Many couples don't even get off the floor, they just stop dancing. Growing up listening to my fathers music, I became an instant fan of Los Bandidos. They play all the classic Norteno/Conjunto music I have come to love and thought I would only here in old tapes and CD's. There hook is to play any song the patrons of this westside night spot ask for, I requested a few of my favorite tunes and was dancing to them within a few songs. I don't know why it took us so long to find this Saturday night gem, but we're regulars from now on.

Good staff and very friendly. I flew in from Indiana and this bartender was just about to lock the doors a little early, he seen me outside and waved me in. He let me drink til closing and treated me like a king. I will stop there every time I fly in thank you mick or whatever your name was!
I've gone to many films there in the past several months, and while I expected to watch a good movie, usually ended up watching a really great one. The Screening Room is a Tucson treasure! So looking forward to AZUFF there in Sept.
Don't bother calling Fandango for ticket prices. The recording says it will give the theater's phone number but it doesn't. Century Gateway is also not in the phone book. So don't bother with this theater, you will be very frustrated and get no info what so ever.
A wonderful theater with an amazing selection of indie films. The Screening Room is a valuable cultural asset.
The food here is great and the bartenders are fast and friendly. Altogether a fun time with poker and karaoke Friday and Saturday nights.
M&L Airport Inn Bar and Grill come check it out! New bold and dynamic atmospere that will stimulate your mind. The new remodeled look is updated and has two new beautiful patios and a brand new kitchen opening soon!

Caliente DJ has a great variety of music from Old school to the new hits and even reggaeton and cumbias! He has the party lights and he's system sounds great! The music he spins makes you wanna dance! =)
I think this is 2 weeks in a row that RPM has had live music listed and both times - no band at all. Last night, no band (I drove cross town to see) and when you call to ask if "there is actually a band tonight" you get a recorded message telling you "the person you are calling is not available." REALLY? Get it together RPM!
My favorite place to enjoy a breakfast al fresco. The patio out back features several different outdoor spaces to choose from, all wonderful. The food is fresh and delicious. A full bar in a cafe is a little odd, but not a bad thing for those who want a mimosa or Irish Coffee!
A terrific gift from the DeGrazia family to the artists of Tucson...a place to show their work!
Great live music! Good drink specials and nice smoking patio. Love this place!
just recently went to fatheads and ordered a piece custom made. Nothing to say except that they did not honor their work which was flawed (actually so bad designed that it wouldnt work) long story short dont expect anyone there including the owner thats a real asshole.
BEWARE OF THIS SHADY, MANIPULATIVE, AND IRRESPONSIBLE SHOP!!!!!!!
I would honestly give this shop a -5 if that were an option and here are my reasons:
1. WORST 'CUSTOM' PIECE:
My boyfriend and I purchased a custom piece from this shop as a gift for his father. We called about this order, came in and figured out the details, and really had high hopes for the results. We live across the country and three weeks later, we received the piece and it was the biggest disappointment for paying $140 plus shipping.
- the tinniest bowl that cannot even fit a screen or adequate amount of product
- a skinny stem that almost touches the bottom, which is impossible to clean
- water comes in to your mouth every time you try to hit it
- the choke position is extremely hard to use
- the glass is pitted and dented
- the dimensions were significantly smaller than what was requested
2. HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE:
We called this place immediately upon receiving this disappointment. Every person that we talked was extremely disrespectful and gave us the run around. My boyfriend and I tried to talk to the manager, Rachel, and that got us nothing but excuses and placing the blame on us as customers. After waiting 3 days to hear back from the owner, we finally got to talk to Micah and he told us he is going to do absolutely nothing. Seriously, take some responsibility and build some customer rapport. Along with the $200 that we spent there, you would expect some respect. In addition to that we WERE planning on buying another custom piece.
The original piece that we were trying to have this custom piece blown after was $40. This is an amazing piece and we cannot find anything like it anywhere, this is why we went custom. For $100 more dollars, I don't feel unreasonable to say I expected MUCH more.
I LOVE THIS BAND!!!
Great neighborhood bar, 2 dollar bottle beer and well drinks , good jukebox and friendly owners and clientele
Excuse me for asking..but how is THIS venue considered "Central", when the Rivers Edge is labeled as "Northwest"? I've been in the area pretty much forever, but other more recent arrivals may be missing the boat on a fun time.
Went there last weekend the drinks were cheap with good service. The pool was only 50 cents and the jukebox was 25 cents. My new go to bar.
