Nice places for a romantic evening:

The Yuma Grill (928) 782-5815 Very secluded place with good food. People who live in the City think it is just for guests of the Hotel, but it is open to everyone. Also the reason why it is quiet. By the Yuma Palms Mall behind the Shilo Inn.

Maxi's Mexican Food (928) 783-1260 In a bad location (hard to find), but has great food. Almost always slow. Good for a budgeted date.

La Fiesta is a Hispanic dance club, and bar.

Ron's Place is a nice Hip-Hop dance atmosphere for the younger crowd (21-40.)

Jimmie Dee's is another dance club\bar that is for a little older crowd. Normally they have both a D.J. and a Live band playing on weekends. During the day (happy hour) it doubles as a hang out for businessmen\women .

The Platinum Cabaret is a strip bar that provides adequate entertainment. Most Fights are on big screens. Also, Wed nights are coin nights..Should be good for all the businessmen that are in town during the week.

Toppers is another strip bar that provides decent entertainment. "Topper Tuesdays" are good, every beer is just a dollar.

Uni Irish Pub a great place for great people! Nice music and nice drinks.
