Best Upscale Bar Ambiance

Playground

Many congress Street businesses have suffered this year, and are struggling to draw Tucsonans as the modern streetcar marches toward completion. Yet Playground has repelled a downtown apocalypse by making itself Tucson's play place for adults. What separates Playground from the rest isn't just its sharp, modern interior; it isn't the DJs who blend classic tunes seamlessly with today's hits; it isn't even the rooftop deck that gives spectacular views of Congress Street. No, Playground's strength is the whimsy that ties it all together: the composition-book-styled menus, the drinks made with Pop Rocks, and the campy movies projected on the outdoor screen. These all make Playground a disarmingly fun place to wait out the Mayan calendar's end.
