The Desert Bar, or to give its full title, the World Famous Desert Bar and Nellie E. Saloon, opened for its 2019-20 season on the weekend of Oct. 5 and 6. The bar, which is located in the middle of the desert, has become a popular tourist attraction, and has been featured in print media and on television.
The bar is only open on weekends from October through April, and only during the daylight hours. The bar features food, drinks and live music and entertainment. It’s set on several levels on the desert landscape and feature rustic-looking structures.
To reach the bar from Parker, head north on State Route 95 and make a right turn onto Cienega Springs Road. Follow the road to the bar. The road is not regularly maintained by the county, so you may want to drive to the bar in a four-wheel drive vehicle or an off-road vehicle.
The bar is open Saturdays and Sundays from 12 noon to 6 p.m. through April.
