HUB Restaurant & Ice Creamery Launches First Cocktail Menu Revamp (PHOTOS)

This is their first full cocktail menu revamp since opening.

Downtown hot spot HUB Restaurant & Ice Creamery launched its first full cocktail menu revamp since its opening.

The menu was created by HUB general manager Alex Zepeda, who began her food and beverage career with HUB in 2011 as part of the original staff. She then moved on to some of Tucson’s best craft cocktail joints including (but not limited to) Scott & Co., Saint House, OBON Sushi Bar Ramen, and BIRD Bar & Chicken before coming full circle back to HUB.

We swung by to photograph all nine of the new cocktails. Here are the pics.
