Tucson Dives: The Silver Room and The Bay Horse




Killing time before/after a wedding yesterday, we went to The Silver Room and The Bay Horse.

The Silver Room is remarkable because: it's the only bar on Plumer, (we caught a Rush Soccer game afterwards); its wood paneling makes it feel "lodgey"; if they open up the divider, you can see right into the restaurant next door - which as seen in the photo above - sometimes hosts kids birthday parties. Most importantly, everyone there is nice, even if you are overdressed.

The Bay Horse Tavern is remarkable because: they have a cozy little beer garden with misters; they have a gigantic wooden chair - as pictured above - in which you can have your picture taken and then tacked on the wall; they have an old-timey wooden phone booth with a working pay phone in there. However, they are not as nice to overdressed strangers. (I was curtly advised that we should clean up after ourselves. I guess that beer glass I left next to the MegaTouch was just the last straw. BTW, Tres Tigres - that's us with the highest score in Photo Hunt, thank you very much.)

I didn't realize you had info on the Bay Horse. It is still on my to-do list.

FYI- Sutliff Bar in Iowa was severely damaged by flooding this summer and bridge destroyed. You are lucky to have visited before the flood.
