Congress Street

Where hip meets history. Meet-up downtown and find much more than there was before.

Downtown Block Party

In the city's cultural hub, in and around Congress Street, you'll enjoy the rich diversity of old and new. Modern urban dwellings sit next to colorful barrios and historic sites. Sidewalk cafés, restaurants, and vintage shops are neighbors to theaters, live music venues, and art galleries.

The Tucson Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) consistently put forth outstanding collections from all eras. Live concerts, comedy shows and plays at venues like The Temple of Music and Art, Rialto Theatre and Fox Tucson Theatre prove the only thing that's historic in the downtown entertainment scene are the venues themselves.

Hotel Congress, built in 1919 and once the famous hideout of John Dillinger, boasts award-winning restaurants, a renowned club, one of the city's best bars, and even a resident ghost. And all year-long weekly, monthly, and annual events around downtown keep the city buzzing.

Then there are the restaurants: Two James Beard award winners (Janos Wilder at Downtown Kitchen + Cocktails, Chris Bianco at Pizzeria Bianco), exciting takes on Mexican cuisine (Elvira's, Cafe Poca Cosa, Penca, El Charro and sister steakhouse Charro Steak), comfort food re-imagined in delicious ways (HUB, 47 Scott, Diablo Burger) and so much more. Add craft breweries (Borderlands and Pueblo Vida), cocktail spots, live music and entertainment and you have a downtown unlike any other.

Get out there and explore.
