I give it a frank 5 Stars as deserved and I now its a bold rating but well deserved. The location is exceptionally nice both inside and out and so are the employees. Rare especially in today's super mega Supermarket atmosphere where everything is on a corporate world wide level. I still consider Basha's a mid-size community oriented market in the purest definition.
Basha's Coffee Shop earns such high marks for a number of reasons situated nicely in a very nice store is one. The freshness that exudes from the beautiful selection of fresh Vegetables to the delectable fruit all within eyesight from the coffee shop. Another nice feature is the seemingly effortless merging of both the store and the Coffee Shop to work together all for the benefit of the customer. As the store has made sufficient room for the Coffee Shop which in turn sends a clear message of Independent Social patronage without the need to affiliate with Basha's the store. I personally have held a few meetings with clients in the Coffee Shop. I have to say the Coffee Shop was very successful in maintaining a professional atmosphere.
Basha's the Supermarket does a great job of remaining detached yet 100% supportive of the Coffee House in every aspect. The amenities are sufficient with more than adequate seating, power outlets and surface space. I have used the WI-FI at the Coffee House on several occasions and I must say they do make it easy by placing the instructions clearly on the wall within the WI-Fi area. Connection is always effortless and glitch-free and only a few feet from the Starbucks counter. The speed is more than sufficient. equivalent to my own DSL based landline back at home. So if you get a chance stop by and have a cup o' joe with us over at the Basha's Coffee House N. Swan Road, Tucson.
Fun n Funky location in the old multi-use industrial area of the Old Pueblo. The space itself, fantastic. Roomy, good space, great tools/resources, easy to feel confortable. Those involved on every level I have experienced are truly interested in furthering their art, your art, ART. Art For All. Art Saves Lives. Industria.
This place used to be Fender Skirts, and as Whiskey Tango its much better!
Vintage Sugar is one of Tucson's most excellent bands! Great atmosphere for all!
food is disgusting, bar is more limited than your grand dad's liquor cabinet, and it is an obvious chain... BUT WHO CARES!
Good to see the Hog Pit getting some good reviews, this place has great BBQ. I've had the brisket and pulled pork sandwiches, the ribs, and also the chicken. The meats are always tender and juicy, the rub they put on the slabs is great, as are the 3 homemade sauces (mild, med, hot). Sides are excellent too - slaw, cornbread, very tasty beans. Owners are very friendly, good selection of beers, plus sweet tea. Nice place, the pit master knows his stuff, check it out!
So good! Nightlife used to be kind of lame until they opened the Hot Pig. It's rockin!
Reasonable pricing, great place to hang out, $1 off drinks with trivia answer. Friendly bartenders..But they need to upgrade on the jukebox (music) and have more variety.
La Cocina has great food whether you want a nibble or a meal. La Cocina is in the courtyard of the beautiful Old Town Artisans of Presidio Barrio. La Cocina has a great assortment of live music. What else could there be?!
Beautiful setting up there on the north end of swan.....gorgeous inside and out.....a Tucson staple !
Wow! Can't believe I've been here this long and only just discovered this little gallery. Wonderful paintings and the prices are terriffic! You can fill a whole house with originals and not break the bank. I'm planning on going every month when the show changes.
Fantastic little jewel featuring local artists in water media. Great prices on original art. Shows change monthly so there's always something new to see!
Great food and drinks. Sunday tacos. Wonderful Saturday karaoke with DJ Tomtom.
OH I forgot to mention. Check out the web site for more info. NovemberCabaret.com
Even though I am one of the crafters in Rita's gallery I am amazed at how professional Rita does this job. She is always pleasant even when I know she is in a lot of pain. Her artwork is stunning!! Naturally I am going to tell you that the leatherwork is some of the best you'll find because I'm Dan Cole (Valhalla Leatherwork) & I've got some of my work there. But the other crafters are absolutely some of the best also. Rita has high standards for both her work & the work that she sells for us, the crafters that use her gallery.
If you walk thru the store you will want to make sure that there is enough money in your account so that you can buy at least one of each item that the crafters make & display there. You can also make special orders with both Rita & the crafters in the shop.
If I add any more it is just going to be like patting myself on the back. Go to Trail Dust Town & go into the Rita Watters Art & Crafters Gallery & see for yourself. You'll wonder why you hadn't seen anything or heard anything about this place before. You will truly find some of the best artwork & crafted items in Southeast Arizona. They will stand up against & match any other type of work in both quality & originality. You'll be proud to own either Rita's artwork or the crafters work & will proudly display it in your home or office.

We visited this restaurant with a large group of people and our waitress was wonderful. She managed to get all our orders correct and had a wonderful smile the entire time. Everyone enjoyed the food, this place is great can't wait to visit it again!
When is Shell Shock coming back? They are so much fun...great rockers...can always count on having a great time!
They have a great Karaoke on Thursday nights. Good service, good prices.
Great beers, tasty food, attentive servers, no skimpy portions! Very relaxed kick back atmosphere, pool tables too.
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.
