I have found the best Christmas decorated restaurant in Tucson. Since it is supposed to “feel a lot like Christmas” it is a shame that few streets or places except perhaps Shopping Malls make you feel that it is Christmas time. Of course there is Winterhaven, famous for their Holiday lighting, but on very few streets as you drive throughout Tucson do you feel like it is actually the Christmas season. .
If you really want to feel like Christmas is here, I recommend you visiting one of my favorite restaurants in Tucson, O’Shaughnessy’s Restaurant and Song Club. The decorations in this unique restaurant are some of the most spectacular I have ever seen in a restaurant. Once you walk into the door you will quickly agree with me. Christmas ART, ART, ART everywhere.
In the front window as you enter you will see probably one of the oldest Nativity scenes in Tucson. It was handcrafted in Austria around 1880 and brought to America in the early 1900s by the George P. Driscoll family. Mr. Driscoll was the Postmaster General during the Teddy Roosevelt Presidency. Each piece of the Nativity set was first created by the artist designing a heavy gauge wire frame skeleton and applying plaster of Paris and then sculpted the final design.
