      get ignored by people and staff
      Poor bathroom facilities, rude bartenders on the weekends, low chance to get laid.

      young crowd and lots of dancing
      IBT's is sort of an after party bar for the 4th ave bar scene. It (the crowd) doesn't get started until about 11:00 to midnight on fridays and saturdays. Pretty equal mix of men and women. All are in their 20s to 30s (mostly college kids). $3.00 cover on saturday unless you get there before 10. It has two indoor rooms (bar side and dance side), one outdoor dance floor and bar. Very poor bathroom facilities. The staff are friendly and beautiful.

      Too many women!
      I went to IBT's once last summer (2009). I was advised that this bar was rated the best in Tucson. I'm glad that I tried a couple of others. Some of the other dudes were pretty hot, it was about Midnight, and the place was pretty packed. Great place if you're bi, bi-curious or straight-curious, but not for me. The music was OK, my draft beer was tepid, but Blake was friendly and HOT! Had a good time for an hour, but had better times at a couple of the other bars. Definitely a mixed crowd, candidate for heterosexualization.

      Just the facts
      Outdoor patio is too small. The walk way to get out to the patio is too narrow. the other room where they have drag shows looks like it could easily be a garage. Its too dark. Th dj doesnt spin a ton of variety mostly over done hip hop.Maybe im just used to california gay clubs. However given the limited gay bar selection here i guess its the best you can do on this side of town.
