We take EVERY visitor we have come to see us in Lake Havasu to the famous Desert Bar. Everyone loves it .. SUPER QUIRKY but what a trip /memory Such an unusual place. Located out in the 'middle of nowhere' is this great place to spend an afternoon. 2 ways to get there; the main road in is dirt, but... More

Just read the naysayers reviews here and I don't get at all what they're talking about. The Desert Bar is a superfun place...in the middle of the desert...that requires taking 5 miles of unpaved road to get to. It's old and rustic and full of character. And it's only open on weekends. If you don't know all of that before... More

We had heard about this place from family who winter in Lake Havasu. We decided to check it out on a recent trip to Lake Havasu City, and we were glad we did.

The food is terrible and overpriced. The atmosphere is fun. Neat bathrooms and decor through out. Drove from Lake Havasu City -- didn't find it worth the 1 hour drive, especially with a 2- and 4-year-old. Children are welcome but I wouldn't recommend it.

This is a great place! The scenery and the views are awesome. So much character in this bar. Loved the outdoor aspect. Enjoyed the food. Enjoyed the band. Enjoyed watching how much everyone else (all ages) enjoyed themselves. I would love to go back and would definitely recommend to others.

Friends we came to visit took us here for a second time this Spring and the atmosphere is so fun. Way back in the desert (4 miles) but takes you way back in time.
