Hi Fi Kitchen & Cocktails is opening its Tucson outpost downtown on Thursday, offering chef-crafted food, adult milkshakes and beer floats.

It’s the latest eatery/bar to open in the now bustling Congress Street entertainment corridor. Hi Fi, which has a year-old sister in Scottsdale, takes up 8,000 square feet of Plaza Centro complex at 345 E. Congress St. By day, it’s a restaurant serving salads, burgers and small plates, priced from $6 to $16, with 35 HDTVs airing all manner of sports.

At night, it morphs into a 21-and-older thumping, bumping club with a high-tech digital graffiti wall flashing nonstop 3-D images. Patrons are carded and a dress code — no excessively baggy pants, athletic wear, head gear, sandals or sneakers — is imposed at night, usually beginning around 9 p.m.

On Sunday, Hi Fi will host its first live event with electronica DJ duo Caked Up. Admission is free and the show begins around 6 p.m.

Hi Fi will open at 8 p.m. Thursday. Its hours will be 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Mondays through Fridays, and 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. Saturdays and Sundays, when they serve brunch.
