Welcome to the Blax Friday App
Friday is #BlaxFriday and this summer, several Tucson hotels are coming together for a summer campaign that uses both our social media and our in-house guest recommendation platform to promote and frequent a local business owned by a Black community member. This week, Hotel McCoy, Hotel Congress, AC Hotel Tucson, and Hotel Tucson City Center will all be sending their hungry guests to The Red Light Lounge at The Downtown Clifton and we encourage YOU to do the same. The Clifton is the passion project of Moniqua Lane, a gorgeous Tucson property recently renovated new guest rooms and the addition of The Red Light Lounge, a Sonoran modern eatery with a sexy ambiance and a mouthwatering menu.
