This place is too fun...locals hang out, they are friendly and the bartender Heather is a hoot. We spent several hours and wish we could have stayed longer. The bloody Mary is by far the best we have ever had anywhere with a special recipe including a pepper garlic mixture . Heather is also an encyclopedia of information about Bisbee,... More

We were here in mid August and had a great time. It was middle of the week and there was an AWESOME band called Big Demons. There was a drink special going on so drinks were really reasonable. There were a lot of locals, and as out of towners, we felt perfectly comfortable. Service was great. Everyone was having fun!... More

It's the perfect dive bar; except with great music, a nicer atmosphere, and better service from the bartenders.

The only place we found open until 2 on a weeknight in Bisbee! Really cool local place though. You get a mix of everyone here from the locals who you can tell come here too often to all the tourists coming through town. Cheap drinks though, bartender was a blonde woman who was super cool! Pool tables and a long... More

It's a very eclectic crowd. There is lots of history on the wall. The gentleman behind the bar was super cool. The drinks are cheap and he pours them generously. I was there on a Saturday afternoon and it was pretty lively so I bet it gets pretty busy at night. It's a dive but I mean that in the... More

St Elmo's has a long history in the Gulch, a former saloon and red-light district in this old western town. The bar is worth a visit just for a sense of the history of the place, but it is usually crowded in the late nights and too seedy looking in the daytime for me to return. Their drinks are no...

Bisbee is full of characters and this place the gathering place. Great bands but very crowded when great bands are playing. You can get as nutty as you want or just enjoy watching the other nuts.
