    Dim Sum Brunch on Sundays from 10:00-2:00
    Our Sunday brunch at The Carriage House takes inspiration from the Hong Kong tea houses featuring push-carts laden with small plates of delectables to be shared at the table, the tradition of dim sum. To that foundation we add a globally-oriented menu, offering delicacies from South Asia, the Pacific Rim, the Americas, Africa, Europe, and the Middle East. While you’ll certainly see traditional dim sum standouts like har gow (crystal shrimp) and char siu bao (roasted pork buns), you’ll also see an assortment of diverse dishes like birria de chivo, arancini, and classic brunch fare such as French toast and eggs Benedict. We believe in the spirit of adventure. Each time you join us on this culinary world tour, you’ll get a chance to try something new as we entice you with different offerings each week. Feeling more in the mood for familiar comforts? Don’t worry, we’ll keep rocking the greatest hits, too.

    Planning a wedding or other special event? The Carriage house can also take care of your needs and provide a truly unique space for your celebration. Check out the website for more information.
    Fox Theatre Tucson
    Tucson's Premiere entertainment venue. A 1,200 seat Southwestern Art Deco movie palace built in 1930 and restored in 2005

    Widely regarded as the “Crown Jewel” of Downtown Tucson, The Fox is right in the center of Tucson’s cultural hub and has an intimate connection with the history of performing arts in Tucson. The Fox has become an important symbol of the recent resurgence of a thriving city center and continues to make strides adding to the economic growth of the downtown area and Tucson as a whole.

    The Fox Tucson Theatre Foundation was incorporated in July of 1999 and was formed for the express purpose of returning the theatre to the community. The foundation generates community interest and investment in the past, present and future of the theatre by sustaining a place that offers high quality performing arts, cultural activities and films in order to inspire, excite, entertain, engage and educate guests from all over Southern Arizona.

    The Foundation is an Arizona 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed out of the citizen’s group known as the Fox Theatre Revival Committee, which began looking at ways to save the theatre in 1997. This group was composed of people who wanted to see the theatre restored, and re-opened. The stated mission of the Foundation is the purchase, restoration, renovation, and operation of the historic Fox Tucson Theatre, located at 17 West Congress, in downtown Tucson, Arizona. The Foundation is guided by a professional staff and is overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors. For further information on the theatre, contact the Foundation office at 520-624-1515.

    The Fox Tucson Theatre is a proud member of the Southern Arizona Attractions Alliance.

    Rialto Theatre
    Recognized by the Tucson Weekly as the Best Indoor Venue for 11 years running, the nonprofit Rialto Theatre is the best place to see live music in Tucson, bar none.

    Check the website and Facebook page to see what exciting and varied acts are going to perform.

    The Rialto Theatre Foundation is an organization dedicated to the stewardship and management of the historic Rialto Theatre. The Foundation is managed by Executive Director/GM/Programming Director Curtis McCrary, with the support of an all-volunteer board of directors.

    Like the Hotel Congress, its sister structure across Congress Street, the Rialto was built by the California-based firm William Curlett and Son. Like all Rialtos (and there are many extant worldwide) the name hearkens to a medieval covered bridge in Venice around which novelty shops were built, providing a de facto “entertainment district” when no such thing existed. “Rialtos” were plazas where the common man could go for fun, as “Theatres” and “Operas” were reserved for the nobility and the wealthy.
