Club Congress, Tucson
Tucson’s Hotel Congress had already been open for 40 years when Thomas “Tiger” Ziegler began slinging drinks at the hotel bar in 1959. Today, Tiger’s Tap Room and its eponymous barkeep are both still going strong. On any given night you’ll find the mahogany bartop packed with travelers and locals, drawn by the historical vibe and live music at the attached Club Congress. The stage there hosts everything from Afrobeat to Southwest-tinged singer-songwriters.Julian Smith, National Geographic Traveler; Photo by Michael George
