You shouldn't drive your rental car down this road but we did! We didn't loose an oil pan but I was worried all the way out and back. Due to the high traffic load from the off road vehicles this unimproved dirt road is very, very rough and rocky. Once there, this place was rocking, crowded with very few parking... More

The bumpy 5 mile ride down a dirt road to The Desert Bar was a one of a kind experience not to be missed! The bar was so unique, the food was excellent, drinks reasonable and the band awesome. We had a great afternoon dancing and partying here!

We have wanted to go here for years but were never here when they were open. They were hopping with off road vehicles in the parking lot. A wedding reception with band was going on and the "one car" classic car show was going on too! Places to sit everywhere and food and beer was cheap. The bar stools are... More

Best bar in or near Parker hands down. Open only from October to May. Live bands, cheap drinks and average food ...although food downstairs is way over priced and to be clear food place is not run by the bar owner, he rents the space. Can't beat this one of a kind...completely solar powered place. A must see and many... More

my son took me to the Desert Bar, it's amazing. Definitely what the old west was. Every direction has something to see, old time vehicles, buildings, mountains. Ladies bathroom is a real kick... Don't miss visiting...

Eat my dust indeed! I recently wrote this to a dear friend. "So you are going to Laughlin. Yippee! There is a place called the Desert Bar outside of Parker that is a must. It is only open on Saturday and Sunday from noon to 6 and closes at the end of April. It's 5 miles on a dirt road... More
