This novel location is something every person has to see at least once in their life. The road to the bar is very basic, meaning most vehicles should have no problem getting there. But once at the bar, that is where the fun begins. While sitting in the middle of nowhere, you can enjoy cold drinks, both adult and non-alcoholic and great food while at the same time listen to a live band that just might be a headliner looking for somewhere fun to play. So whether you are an off-roader, extreme 4x4 enthusiast, Jeep Wrangler fanatic, or needing to get out of the house in your Toyota Camry. Take a break from life and check out The Desert Bar near Parker Arizona and I promise you, this will be a place you will tell stories about of your visit for years to come. Now just off the trail, Cienega Springs Road is the home to many of the must difficult trails in the Parker AZ area.
