It's worth at least a quick visit to St Elmo's Bar to see this historic gem. This dive bar opened in 1902 to cater to miners. It still feels very much today like it did when it opened, except with updated pictures. History is all...around you inside. Make sure you check out the entire building. There are also often a lot of locals hanging out there so your experience is authentic.More

WOOT!! Happy New year! Thanks for the great DJ dance music, excellent bar service with heavy pours, and wonderful staff including security. Such friendly folks party in Bisbee! We truly couldn't have had a better time. Thanks for the memories.

This is the absolute definition of a dive bar which was exactly what we were looking for. Lots of memorabilia on the walls. Bartender was great, drinks were good. Nice locals hangout. Will be back for sure.

We went to just about everywhere in Bisbee and this by far was the worse. The bartender was about as friendly as a rattlesnake. There were also two dogs in the bar. One was sitting on a bar stool at the bar (Pretty Cool), the...other though was a pug that was running back and forth on the bar, but when it was tired of doing that, they put it on the floor and it ran over pooped next to us. No one even attempted to clean it up. We left.........More

On my list for it's history of oldest in AZ, and recognized as a dive bar nationally. Didn't disappoint keeping my ear to the conversations, noting the characters around me in and out and at the bar. Lot's to read for sure and to view...all around on every wall nook and cranny. One drink was enough as I had other visits to make.More

I continue to visit this bar every time I'm in Bisbee. I've read some negative reviews and don't get it, unless they are a bunch of pampered millennial's .

Stopped in here for a quick beer on a very cold day. Preferred this spot to the upscale brewery up the hill. Lots of fun folks and tons of character here. Friendly bartender with a good attitude towards strangers.
