If you like history, read a little and then stop here for entertainment or dining. They have a lovely outdoor patio.

There are so many great things about the Cup: exquisite desserts, a great menu, convenient hours, creative cocktails (my favorite is the Ghost Orchid), and its location in the historic Hotel Congress. Do not miss!

The Hotel Congress is the hub of the thriving downtown area. Enjoy breakfast at the cup cafe or lunch/dinner/music later in the day. Has the real feel of Tucson History. Downtown is a must for foodies and anyone interested in this quaint southern town.

BRUNCH? The best brunch in Tucson is about 20 minutes away in Hotel Congress. Take a historic walk through the hotel where the famous outlaw John Dillinger was captured while sipping on the best bloody mary available in Tucson. There is always something going on at Hotel Congress!

Enjoy a drink at The Tap Room, some live music in Club Congress, or a delicious meal at The Cup Cafe. Or just take in this historic building and learn a bit about one of its most famous guests, the outlaw John Dillinger.

A historical and fun place to visit, downtown Tucson, a 5-10 minute drive. In the evenings Hotel Congress is hopping, with several bars and a live band. Otherwise, it is kept essentially just as it was in the early 1900s when the Dillinger Gang was captured and arrested here. Located just across the street from the historic Tucson train station. This is a must see for those of us who love the old gangster movies.

Imagine stepping back in time and entering an original Southwestern Hotel... You've arrived!!! Definitely old school is what makes this place so great. The hotel feels like it has been through it, if only the walls could talk the stories they would tell. Rugged and real, funky and cool... Great bar. Love the cashier area and store. The restaurant is delicious and if you like desserts... Who needs to watch a movie, when you can live one... Love it!
