This place has some of the best small name bands in Tucson with nation wide acts. Whether the show is indoors our out crowds are young and often dancing, mostly outside. The indoor music room is small but intimate. Hot in summer expect to sweat if you try to dance.

I had the occasion to visit all of the Congress bars due to special events during a long stay in town. I was there about six times. One consistent experience, it is nearly impossible to get a beer or drink. Even if the bar is just moderately busy, the bartenders seem to not have the ability to watch the entire bar and serve customers in the appropriate order or watch for the need for additional service. Customers get openly frustrated. Twice, I just gave up, biding my time planning to go down the street to get another beverage. Sort of a shame as the entire hotel has a great atmosphere in and out.

Club Congress hasn't changed although much of downtown Tucson has...nice to feel after all the years I left that "Some things never change!" And for an "Aging Dog" like me....it's comforting! ;-)

Friday, Oct. 29, 2021 The worst band I have ever experienced. Six of us had to leave to try to protect our ears! They were called Mayer Hawthorn and whoever booked them or is responsible, wound up having dozens or people leave, some even in the middle of dinner. No band should ever be allowed to play at that volume in a restricted area, maybe in the middle of a field, certainly not during dinner hour at Cup Cafe where the windows were actually vibrating and people inside were complaining! This band did not play music, it was simply NOISE!

My wife has a residency/work card and a foreign drivers license. Everywhere downtown excepts either/both of these IDs, but Hotel Congress doesn’t. Until hey abandon these racist policies, we won’t be going back (despite loving the drinks and music), and if you care about individual rights, neither should you. A completely shameful, unnecessary practice.

I went to a concert in Club Congress and they put us behind a giant tuna net the entire length of the show. It was really lame and the staff was rude. We will never ever go see another show at this venue. EVER.

Went for a Matt Costa show on vacation. Bouncers were incredibly rude and unprofessional. Ditto with the bartender. Stage setup was terrible and about 30% of the room view is ruined because of a giant pillar. Never again.

This was a great place to hang out! They were playing retro music, when we went, and drinks were served quickly and the bar tender was very friendly.

Love the history,cool people and the atmosphere didn't disappoint, but the service we had yesterday was ridiculously bad. The dark haired woman with short hair couldn't have been less interested in her job. It was early evening, and after being treated with complete apathy we left for a much more upbeat place down the street.

Neat venue though, unfortunately not well managed.

Congress Hotel, Tap Room - the whole thing is a must see if you are downtown. Doesn't matter what age - lots of fun and history. They're tearing up alot of the streets so you have to have some patience, but it's well worth it.
