Place is awesome! Old west type saloon. Local bands playing on stage. Very unique setting. Hot babes working the bar. Food vendors. Restrooms are totally cool. The 5 mile road from hell to get there is not a drawback once you get there. Lol

Rough 5 mile drive for a location with great character, and good food. Second time here and will be back. Great music and staff makes for a relaxing afternoon of food and beverage.

Go and experience a unique place. Great music, food, atmosphere and architecture?! The dirt road is all part of the event.

Went with friends via car, that was interesting in itself. It's not really a long drive, but you need to go slow. It's well worth the drive.

Excellent views and a nice place to visit. Good food and decent prices on beer. Make sure you have a vehicle that can make it out there and back.

Love visiting the Desert Bar for lunch. getting there is 1/2 the fun! 4x4 is preferable but any car can make it up there. It's a long dirt road through the mountains in the middle of nowhere but once you get there it's an oasis with live music and great food!

This Bar was awesome, nothing like your typical bar. Plenty of good food to choose from. Staff was friendly and polite. They even have water bowls for your pets. Road was a bit rough, but well worth the adventure. 👍

Thank Valerie M
