Mineshaft Bisbee

Bisbee Gay Men's Weekend where the locals are friendly, the summer temps are cooler, and the party is on at MINESHAFT, where fun and exciting special events plus the charms of the colorful old mining town of Bisbee come together for one incredible weekend!

Special events, parties, happy hours, shows and even our own mini gaybourhood will add a big scoop of glitter to what makes going to Bisbee fun already - soaking up the turn-of-century atmosphere, hitting the dive bars and taking in the many different restaurants, art galleries and shops.
