Really great place. Wonderful valley view. Good place just steps from trolley parking lot where our bus parked. Machines to gamble. Beautiful lighting! Good bartender and friendly too. Great place to just sit and soak up the history. Public restroom too. Wheelchair friendly.

Great Saloon with a fantastic view of the valley. The bartender that day, Corey, was a font of information on the history of the bar and the surrounding area. Thank you for the recommendation for dinner too,Cider House was great.

The Bucket of Blood Saloon is a pretty cool stop if you're in Virginia City. The history I believe goes back to 1876, if I remember correctly. Lots of old chandeliers, photos, etc. I bought one of their sought after t-shirts. But no draft beer....More

Made the quick trip from Reno to Virginia City, NV. Walking along the historic old town wooden side walk we spotted this rowdy lively saloon with cowboy music pouring out. For this Saturday which included Camel races in town, was pretty crowded which highlighted the...More
