Yesterday we ventured to the Desert Bar, which is located north of Parker, AZ.
After we turned off Hwy 95, we drove five or six miles back into the desert.
Due to the condition of the road, this short trip takes about half an hour.
The bar was not too crowded.
The lack of patrons may have been due to; being its too early in the season, or because of high profile football games being televised this weekend.
None the less, there was a slight traffic jam of folks arriving.
The bar is only open on Saturdays and Sundays during the cooler months.
The live music is good listening and dancing.
With no electricity, generators keep the band's speakers working and the beer cold.
This is the most eclectic of places!!!
Upon arrival visitors are greeted by a silhouette of a church:
Old fire hoses act as 'yellow lines' in the parking lot:
Also the owner has a few old vehicles displayed on the premises:
Interesting light fixtures grace the entrance.
There are tiers of seating for patrons, today we were lucky enough to get a 'prime' location.
The original bar has a tin ceiling:
No old western bar is complete without a piano in the corner:
Prior to our arrival, it must have been a little chilly in the bar room, as there was still a blazing fire in the fireplace.
It certainly is a unique place; with its horseshoe chairs (do you recognize my hat?)
Unique bathroom sinks, are a must to see!!!
The view out of the bathroom's glass-less window was breathtaking:
If you're ever near Parker or Lake Havasu, Arizona on a weekend, this is a must see!!!
And that's the way it is.....................
