Here are the places where we had the most success meeting and attracting single girls in our city. Try at least a couple of them, and you’ll certainly get a date (or two!).
Every night, Sky Bar sets up telescopes on the patio. Astronomers are on hand to tell you a little bit about what you see and help you with selfies. Here’s your chance to test out some of your cheesiest pickup lines about falling from the heavens with a little ironic humor. And is there anything more romantic than a cocktail under the stars? How about a few cocktails during a supermoon?
Sky Bar was voted the city's best cocktail menu and open mic night in 2018, so be sure to join them on Wednesdays to experience one of the truly unique hookup bars in the city.
If you haven’t had much success on Tinder because you aren’t in the top 10-15% in the looks department or aren’t in your 20s anymore, why not change things up with Adult FriendFinder? They have been helping people like you hookup for over a decade and are the most established hookup platform. If you can't get laid in Tucson through this, you need to check out more of our articles on creating attraction!
A lot of people come to us for recommendations on what to try first and we usually tell them Adult FriendFinder. Having a ton of users who are completely focused on sex and is extremely easy to use leads to getting good results. When even normal guys are getting good success you know you are in the right place.
AFF has been the proven option we've seen for finding hookups, especially for guys who haven't had great success elsewhere.
We’ve spent a lot of time each year reviewing all of the best hookup options online out there and have found Adult FriendFinder to be the best one for the past few years. Anyone searching for someone over 30 who is also over 30 will have the best luck on Adult FriendFinder. If most people had to choose just one hookup option, it would be this one, which makes it one of the best Tucson hook up platforms.
Among the best places to find hook ups in Tucson, there are a couple of popular night clubs. These places offer a vibrant party vibe, so it’s very easy to socialize and meet new girls outside of your social circle.
Located downtown near 4th Street, Zen Rock is the place you want to be on a Saturday night in our city. It offers different types of music, from Latin to hip hop and Top 40. You may not like Latin music, but it’s great to dance with girls, so make sure to give it a try!
If you want to find it crowded, go after 11 p.m. You’ll have to pay a small cover, but it’ll be worth it! The drinks are good, the staff is awesome and they really care about safety. There is also an outdoor area for smoking.
Keep in mind that it does get pretty loud in here. So if you want to chat, the outdoor area is perfect for that. But if you’re not much of a talker, you can let your dance moves do all the talking for you!
This venue may remind you of a dive bar, but it also has a great dance floor. That’s why it makes our list of the best clubs to meet girls. On Wednesdays, it’s Ladies’ Nights. So you’ll find the venue filled with single girls having fun with their friends.
Whiskey Roads also serves some good eats, not just your typical bar chow. Have dinner with your friends there, then try to pick up girls before the music gets loud.
Keep an eye for the venue’s social media pages too, as sometimes they organize live music nights that attract a lot of people. Sometimes, even country music fans come here on theme nights! Teaching a girl how to line dance is a great ice breaker that could get you her number quickly.
Playground is known for their events, practically designed to help singles meet other singles. Join them on Wednesday for their “Geeks Who Drink” trivia or Tuesday for their rooftop Yoga Hour when the ratio of women to men is sure to be great.
Expect a DJ most nights, with dancing and a crowd on Saturday nights. Ladies night is Friday. All of this makes Playground one of Downtown's best hookup bars, attracting tons of singles any night of the week.
Here are other clubs where we met some hot Tucson girls. They’re also worth checking out if you’re not feeling the venues above:
The typical dance club isn’t your scene? Don’t worry: the city has many bars and beer gardens for you to mingle with attractive girls. In this list, you’ll find some of the best places to socialize with beautiful girls.
What’s better than hanging out in a beer garden in the middle of the summer? Hanging out in a beer garden with many single girls! Well, seems like you’ve found the right place to do just that. When the weather is hot, Hop Shop’s two spacious patios turns into one of the best places to find hookups in Tucson!
This popular drink shop with beer gardens is part of the Metal Arts Village, and it attracts many people with its excellent craft beers and live music performances.
The bar doesn’t serve food aside from some pretzels and appetizers to go with the beer of your choice. But there are several food trucks in the Metal Arts Village. So don’t miss the opportunity to buy something tasty for that attractive girl you just approached!
Casa Film Bar is basically a bar with a video store. Why is this good to help you attract single girls? Because it provides you with many topics to break the ice and start a conversation!
Do you see a sexy girl browsing all movies from Steven Spielberg? Ask her what’s her favorite title from the iconic director. Want to attract her attention in an unconventional way? Tell her that you didn’t like the movie she seems interested in, but give some genuinely insightful criticism. That’s definitely going to catch the attention of any movie buff.
After you’ve successfully started a conversation, offer to buy her a drink at the bar, which serves excellent beers and wines. There are also themed events from time to time, so check those out too.
You may have to search for this alleyway gem, but once you find it, you won’t be disappointed with all the opportunities to find real hookups. If you love music (and the color red), this is your place! It has a creative assortment of cocktails and an extensive beer and wine selection as well as some of the best music in town. Downstairs has a bit of a club feel while upstairs is a little mellower, so there is something for every mood.
R. Bar is adjacent to the Rialto, so the crowd varies based on the scheduled show. Pick a band that suits your taste and you’ll have a great night. Sundays are karaoke night, which makes for great conversation. The environment is romantic and the crowd is usually friendly and approachable, making R. Bar one of the best bars to get laid in Tucson.
With a name like Tap and Bottle, you are obviously going to a place known for their craft beer and excellent wine list. So, order a pint or a glass, and set yourself up to meet other single women and men. It has the feel of a local hang, so the crowd and bartenders are usually friendly and chill. They also have regular live music and a Wednesday night “sweat + sip” event (perfect for fitness fanatics, or those looking for one).
If you aren’t in the downtown area, get over to Tap and Bottle North, their newer location. It has the same relaxed vibe and great drinks. Both spots are where you can get laid in Tucson without a ton of effort.
Here are other good bars to meet and attract girls:
Daytime hangouts can also be great places to find flings in our city. Try these out:
Why would we list a gym as one of the best places to get laid in Tucson? Simply because it’s very popular with girls, and it’s actually pretty easy to find hookups in Tucson at a gym. Prestige Fitness also offers fitness classes where you can meet girls. If you spot someone you like, engage in a little post-workout flirtation.
Not all guys are actually good at picking up girls in nightclubs. And that’s totally fine! Maybe you find it easier to approach a girl during the day, in the casual atmosphere of a coffee shop. If so, Crave Coffee Bar may be the right setting for you.
This cozy venue offers great coffee and, most importantly, it’s a great place to find Tucson hookups. Girls who work in the nearby shops and restaurants go there during their breaks to get their daily dose of caffeine.
This coffee shop is near the University of Arizona and it’s extremely popular with college-age girls thanks to its delicious vegan dishes and amazing coffee. If you see a girl you like, approach her by asking a question about a fancy item on the menu.
Ask her if she’s already tried a particular dish. If you discover that she’s vegan or vegetarian, which is pretty common at Bentley’s, then you have another great conversation topic.
Need more recommendations? Here are some that might work out.
If you are in the Palo Verde area and in the mood for a down-to-earth dive, head over to Red Garter Bar & Grill. This is not a fancy place, so come for the burgers and beers, a good game of pool, and friendly conversation.
If the conversation isn’t flowing, there is always darts, arcade games and poker tournaments to keep you entertained. The game is always on, and Red Garter has one of the best jukeboxes in town. That should be enough to set the mood for a late-night hookup.
Tinder is one of the most famous dating platforms out there. It’s the one that launched the trend of “swiping,” and that radically changed the world of online dating because of its distinctive approach. The downside to this, however, is it focuses almost exclusively on the user’s looks.
Since Tinder is so renowned, you’ll face a lot of competition there. The majority of the users here are male, so hot girls are already flooded with messages from your competitors. Plus, we already mentioned that Tinder’s approach focuses heavily on looks. So even if you have a stellar personality, not having the right photos to attract her will break your game.
That said, this option can actually work very well for guys who are particularly good-looking, and will attract a lot of mates just with the right profile photo. You might even get away with a so-so profile if you’re really good at wooing girls over text and are confident enough to not be afraid of the competition. For all the other guys, finding Tucson hookups may be easier on a different platform.
This trendy piano bar in downtown is another popular spot among single girls. There is a nice patio where you can hang out with attractive girls in the summer. Plus, this bar is basically part of a restaurant called La Cocina, so you can also eat (and share with a hot girl you just met).
If you can sing or play, don’t miss the opportunity to impress girls at the piano bar. Actually, this is a great spot for music students who want to use their skills to woo girls. If you’ve already talked a bit with a girl you like, why don’t you serenade her at the piano bar?
