Drinks near Tucson Airport
My kids (Barcelona and LA) and I (Mpls) will be flying into Tucson tomorrow for a short visit with(grand)parents in Green Valley. Arriving about 9PM. We feel the bar scene there may be a bit torrid(Barcelona's recent EU cup victory and all...) and we might like a quick stop at a local watering hole. We've liked JBar other visits but seems like a half hour drive in the wrong direction. Any hound's suggestions appreciated--margaritas, martinis, dives to more urbane-- anything with a good local flavor that might be closer to the airport. Thanks.
The Nimbus Brewery is a good place. It's a little hard to find and on the West side of Davis-Monthan. http://nimbusbeer.qwestoffice.net/mai...
All the stuff down by the airport is a little low rent and a little rough for most travelers. The Desert Diamond casino on Old Nogales is probably your best bet for a good drink and/or a bite to eat. From the Airport, Take a left at the light and go west past the railroad tracks. Turn left and go South to the Casino on the west side of the airport.
I'm told there is another casino on I-19 further South but, I haven't been there.
