The Astronomy Bar in Tucson Feb 26, 2010
An astronomy bar?? This new astronomy themed bar opened downtown Tucson on the famous 4th ave in November last year. It replaced the former dingy North that many people did not like (thank goodness). It is located right next to Brooklyn Pizza, this is not to be mistaken with Sky Box which is also a famous music bar more to the east of Tucson. A friend headed over to Sky Box instead of Sky Bar. I went to Sky Bar for one of Southern Arizona Adventure Company's Friday Happy Hours (which I have not attended in a while). I changed my mind several times during the week about attending the Happy Hour because it was being held in a Bar on 4th avenue. I do not like 4th avenue and do not go there at all. I think it has too many school kids and is overly crowded.
I must admit I was surprised more than liked the Sky Bar. The the interior was quite sterile, feeling still and dark. Their happy hour began early especially since our meet-up was using this venue. We had a group of 77 confirmed and a few more later on. The happy hour ended at 8:30 I believe, I left way before then as I stayed for only an hour or so. There was a giant screen near the pool table with awesome, I mean incredible feeds of the stars from the telescope on the roof. It is incredible to see the constellations on the giant screen (astronomical bar, wouldn't you say?).
The drinks were reasonably priced, but what I disliked was the wait time after ordering pizza from next door. Don't get me wrong, I think it is great that you can order food from Brooklyn's Pizza and get it delivered to you at Sky Bar, but it would add to their service credit if Sky Bar made their own appetizers or entrees for their customers.
