Discover Some of Our Best Watering Holes on Nevada Backroads
There are few better places to “drink in” the history of the Silver State than in watering holes that were part of it—or, as we like to call ‘em, “Sagebrush Saloons.” Nevada’s historic bars beckon dirt road ramblers and history hounds alike. They don’t all have to be old to be the best bars in Nevada, but many of them are and still sling frosty beers and signature cocktails over well-loved saloon bar tops that sailed around the world, boarded horse-drawn wagons, and made their way to a boomtown—in many cases, to the very spot you’re sidled up to. If only these walls (and original red oil lamps, cobweb-covered paintings, and creaky 19th-century wood floors) could talk. Luckily, the friendly locals you’re about to clink glasses with sure can.
