Fun little place to hang out and play slots for a bit. Took some friends from Bend, Oregon there on our anniversary only to come back the following summer to see them get married there. They loved the Saloon, but they drink more than I. As for me, I could sense the ghosts present in there, especially in the lady's bathroom. I was creeped out, so tried hard not to drink much.lol It really was bad(vibe) visiting the jail cells. I have to say it's a cute place(town) with a ton of history, so go explore!!!!! We actually traveled there 21 yrs ago, but the requirement below does not allow accuracy.

Dont rip off tourists. We provide you with valuable income. You dont want to get a bad reputation. Not much to add really. Walked in 8pm on a Tuesday begining of June , asked what stout or porter they had on tap. None was the reply but we have cans of nut brown ale. Ok we will try a couple. 20 dollars. Not amused. And it was nothing special.

We dropped in for a drink. It was packed! There was a band playing and all tables were full. We squeezed into the bar area and got our drinks. Prices high, but no more than most touristy places. Bartender was nice. It was interesting to people watch and enjoy our drink, but nothing extra special so we left after our drink. We can check the box that we went and really no reason to return.

This establishment is filled with antiques and has a view that is hard to beat. Long wonderful bar and friendly staff. Good place to hear the local news and have a cold drink.

This was just a stop in the middle of the day for a cold beer. We had a great time listening to the woman play the honky-tonk piano and watching the ever changing parade of people. It's a lively place and a nice stop. They did not have any food available though, which would have been nice.

A group of us go to the Reno Air Races each year. When we arrive in Reno we immediately head to Virginia City. This is a fun unique experience with lots of shops and quite a few bars. The girls shop and the guys see how many bars we can visit. We always agree to meet up at the Bucket of Blood Saloon. Who doesn’t like a bar named “Bucket of Blood”. Just a fun place with cold beer. They have a very large picture window at the rear of the bar, the view is beautiful.

I have been here before and I expect I will return. However, the place was new to my partner. Sure, it is a tourist trap but the name alone gives it a local flavor. And the locals do come - sometimes in their full cowboy regalia. The saloon is from 1876.
We had vodka tonics, enjoyed the view, bought T-shirts for friends, and admired all the old lamps in the ceiling. If you find yourself in Virginia City I recommend that you check out Bucket of Blood Saloon.

My husband & I have visited Bucket of Blood for many, many years & had to make one more nostalgic trip up the mountain. It's an amazing step back into the 1870s or 1880s, period chandeliers everywhere, gorgeous original bar. Popcorn is free & several beers are local. The host we chatted with--a blonde woman--was super friendly. We had a great time.
