I really liked this bar. The live music was great, the atmosphere real good and the prices decent. Is a nice concept, but other than the name, there's not much bat-related ambiance.

Sonny Wolf was amazing! He must have been born with a guitar in his hands! He is a natural entertainer. Good drinks, good prices. Bad bathrooms - please put a little money into them as this tells your patrons you want them to stay and...More

Aptly names for the city with the biggest colony of Mexican bats - very cool space with live music 🎶 and tons of character . Come here on Friday night

Sat & Mon nights a band plays some of the best Blues music. Attendance hurt by extreme grunginess (not cool-just dirty, grimey) Clean up the joint before it's closed down.

One of the grossest bathrooms I have ever used. Would of preferred going in an alley. Where we were standing looked like plaster was falling from the ceiling. Would not go back here.

Fun bar for live music. No cover charge on a Thursday night. Great band. The crowd seemed to be in their 20s and 30s. It's one of many saloons on the street. Fun night.

So we walked in here to check it out because of the interesting name, and I'm pretty sure an actual bat wouldn't get caught in there. The Bat Bar gives dive bars a bad name. Walked into the bathroom and did a 180 and walked...More
