Dive Bars Outside of Burning Man

burning man dive barsOne of my favorite dive bars outside of Burning Man is Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor. Make sure you pay ol’ Jub Jub a visit before you caravan over to the actual Black Rocks Desert — you won’t have the opportunity to revel in the dive bars spectrum for some time!

Described as a ‘Burner’s Bar’, Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor is a rugged little outfit where the people also happen to be friendly. Sure, you’ll meet some characters in dive bars — but Jub Jub’s is another ballgame. If you’re hitting up this bar around the time of Burning Man, be prepared to meet some veteran burners and some … well, very experimental music.

If you’re familiar with the Jub Jub’s camp that’s appeared in Burning Man of old, there happens to be a connection here. It’s definitely better explained in person, just know you’re in for a treat. The drink specials are terrific and the live music is just a good example of what to expect from the festival goers at Burning Man. Some dive bars just don’t come any classier than Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor.

I recommend stopping in to wet your whistle before you get into full on Burner Mode, this place will definitely leave you with a story to tell.

Stay tuned for additional dive bars in Coachella!
