I always go to have at least one drink at St. Elmo's. It's a must see and experience when in Bisbee. Check out the Quarry for great food next door. The only place open late.

Being an out-of-towner, at first glance, I was a little uneasy about this bar. It's a total local bar with a pool table in the bar section and a dance floor / stage in the adjacent room. I ended up going their with two local friends and a fellow hotel guest that I just met. Long story short, if you... More

Great american bar, great music, pool, beer. Stop by for a drink or two, and chat to some of the regulars.

St. Elmo's Bar is truely one of a kind. It is very much a local kind of bar, and has been in business since 1902. A lot of character on the walls and the people inside. Pool tables, music, and a cool old bar to sit down at. Well worth stopping in if you are in town.

The place is an old dive bar. If you need clean walls and ceiling not falling down in the corner this is not the place for you to go. The drinks were strong and reasonably priced. There were bikers, locals, tourists and a few dudes who looked like you didn't want to run into them in a dark alley. If... More

Stinky, dirty, unfriendly (if you are out-of-towner), VERY limited selection of low end drinks, service horrible. Just skip this one, no matter how much they talk to you about its long history...

A fun place, even though it's dusty and old. But, that's Bisbee. I've spent many fun nights at St. Elmo's over the past twenty+ years and have learned to enjoy it's ambiance. Plus, it's where the locals hang out, so after 9 PM you can expect to see all types of characters. Anything is possible in Bisbee, so this is... More
