I prefer this Blue Monkey over the other because it tends to be less crowded, but both are in cool parts of town.
Service here is on par with your average Midtown bar and prices fair. But the bar is bigger than most you'll find in Midtown, plus there's plenty of seating and lots of pool tables.
I'd come here to drink, though. The food is of average bar quality. Go down the street to Huey's to get a bite first.
Montgomery Brewing Co. is a good place to go out with friends on a Friday or Saturday night.
You can start early and get a meal. I think they have really delicious burgers here, and the crab claws aren't bad either. Plus, you pay a fair price for a good sized-meal.
The beer is okay. But on the bright side, it's fairly priced. Some breweries charge way too much for their brews, but here, you atleast get what you pay for.
They also feature live music on the weekends which is always a blast for a crowd.
This place is so much fun. They have live music EVERY night...jazz, blues, rock 'n' roll. So you're always sure to have a good time.
The drinks here are also well priced and strong. Plus, you're in walking distance to restaurants and cafes and the local independent movie theater, so it's a much hipper part of Montgomery.
Great place to party any night of the week.
North is an overly trendy bar and restaurant at the La Encantada Mall in Tucson, so the concept is cool, but the service is lousy and it's a tad bit overpriced.
On the bright side, everything on the menu sounds delicious, and the two things I've tried ARE delicious: flank stead and short ribs. I really enjoyed the root vegetables they served on the side of the short ribs.
I also like that they serve olives on the table. The bread is pretty good, too. Plus, there is a private room for large groups.
Overall, an okay place to go, but be weary of the snobby wait staff and clientele.
This place is unbelievable. They have the biggest selection of fine, upscale foods imagineable. They have exotic produce, an incredible array of wines and beers, cheeses you couldn't find within several hundred miles of Tucson. It really is a treat to roam around this store. And for us mortals, you'll do more roaming than shopping. This place is expensive.
Advise coming here if you're making a very special meal.
Also, great sushi bar and bakery. Everything in that bakery case looks heavenly!
Yia Yia's is a nice little place to grab a delicious, casual meal. I've only been for lunch, but I hear they have great brunch on the weekends, so I'd be willing to try it next time I'm in town.
I'm especially a big fan of the pizza. Most of them are under $10. Service and price is also very good.
This place is too cute. They have really nice gifts and women's accessories, most of which are made by local artists and designers.
The prices are high, but that's to be expected for hand-crafted pieces.
Awesome place to just browse around at local art, fashion and accessories.
This Indigo's location has a pretty impressive selection of designer jeans, but again, the prices are a bit high. However, they're on par with your Nordstrom's or Lord & Taylor department store, but the selection isn't THAT expansive.
I also have to say that the sales associates here are nicer than most stores in The Square.
If you really need those jeans that make your butt look perfect, here's a good place to find them. Just be ready to spend upwards of $100.
Square Foods is a good place to find stuff you won't find at your average grocery store. There's a lot of stuff that caters to vegetarians and vegans, but do expect to pay a little extra. However, service is always friendly, and this shop isn't too busy. It IS the south, after all.
This place is ridiculously expensive, but that's because it carries pricey design labels. However, the selection is really huge here if you're looking for a very nice cocktail gown.
My only unjustifiable complaint is against the sales associates. Sure, it's The Square, and rich people shop here, but there's no need to be so snobby.
Come and try on for free or spend a month's pay on a dress. Or you can get lucky and find a good sale! It happens sometimes...
