Sedona, Arizona: E.T. Encounter Diner

Slick and commercial, but the former Red Planet diner has a charming flying saucer fountain in its parking lot, and a couple of alien spaceships (and alien dummies) and martian murals inside.
1655 W. Hwy 89A, Sedona, AZ
On the south side of Hwy 89A, about 1.5 miles west of its intersection with Hwy 179. Between Inspiration and View Drives.

Red Planet Diner

Cute, quirky, and kitschy. Tasty food.

Red Planet Diner

It's not "Space Aliens Bar" from your list, but the Red Planet Diner in Sedona sounds similar. It's pretty... alien. And it doesn't seem like a chain. Good burgers and great shakes.

Flying saucer fountain in the parking lot, lots of UFO photos and items in the outer space themed eatery.
