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!
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.
This guy has all the old school,all rock n roll, 2 much to mention. he will help u put the glide back in your stride!get ready to wag your tail with all his jams!!!!
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!
Great live music! Good drink specials and nice smoking patio. Love this place!
I LOVE THIS BAND!!!
Great neighborhood bar, 2 dollar bottle beer and well drinks , good jukebox and friendly owners and clientele
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.
The best bar that Tucson has to offer. Built on great drinks and pool tables this establishment has been around longer than most Tucsonan's can remember. Thanks to Matt,Tara,Jackie,Russ, and everyone else at The Garter the food and the atmosphere are truly top notch. My home away from home for many years and I still love the juke box. The best juke box in Tucson. Food,drink,or just a good time the Red Garter is the place to go!!!
This is a great small theater for independent film.
What I liked about the dining and theatrical experience most was the humor. It's a great location and the food was good. No suggestions for improvements as it was all excellent! (Super Sleuth Award prize winner:)
This is a great place to hear very good jazz. The performers are students and you will be stunned to find out how young they are when you hear their music. They are very polished and really know how to swing. The performances are in the outdoor patio by the pool which contains a fire pit. It's a great way to spend an evening.
Boondocks does an excellent job of promoting a large diversity of live music. One of the best venues in Tucson for the many genres covers.
It was a lot of FUN. Please keep up the good work. The location is pretty good. We would recomend it.
I think they finally got the stench of cigarette smoke out of there. It took a few years. Not bad bar. Acoustics OK. Lot of room. Also have gotten rid of most of the trouble makers from the old days of Neon Prophet. Kitchen has surprisingly good fare. All in all I think I have to give it 5 stars.
RE: "The Desert Cadillacs"
Tucson's best classic rock band does it again with DANCIN' music from every genre! They added magic to the 11/11/11 grand opening! Tight harmonies, innovative arrangements, classic tunes and awesome instrumentals. I hear they play for private parties, special events, and weddings. When are they comin' back??!!! They're a true HIDDEN GEM in Tucson!!
We went for a birthday celebration with some out of town friends. It was the best thing we could have done. Grrrreat time.
Tucson's best kept secret! Tremendous fun in an intimate setting with incredibly talented entertainers! An experience not to be missed!
