3. Genoa Station Bar and Grill, Genoa, NV

The Genoa Station Bar and Grill is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and cocktail hour. The menu is chock full of mouthwatering American and Mexican food with a full bar of beer, wine, and cocktails. We recommend trying their Genoa Station Runner (rum, peach schnapps, blackberry brandy, banana liquor, pineapple juice, orange juice, grenadine).

Looking for a cocktail bar in Fallon, Nevada? Why not treat yourself to one of the best with Sandwinds. They’ve won multiple awards in a variety of areas, from their appetizers to their food and drink selection. Come see what all the fuss is about tonight.

5. Carmen’s Black and White Bar and Grill, West Wendover, NV

Carmen’s Black and White Bar and Grill describes themselves as “a little beer and whiskey bar where good times and a lot of fun happen.” While they might be small, that doesn’t mean they’re lacking. Open from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m., they’re open late and guarantee a good time.

6. Downtown Cocktail Room, Las Vegas, NV

The Downtown Cocktail Room in Las Vegas, Nevada, is one of the best cocktail bars in the United States. Just ask the Los Angeles Times, Centurion Magazine, the Huffington Post, USA Today, Food and Wine… and more. The cocktail menu is large, diverse, and seasonal. Try anything. It’s all tasty.

7. Sierra St. Kitchen and Cocktail, Reno, NV

Sierra St. Kitchen and Cocktail was rated “Best New Reno Restaurant” in 2016. Since then, they’ve only improved. The food menu is large with tons of comfort food options, including mac and cheese and lamb chops. But the main attraction are the libations. We like the Beet Martini (beet infused vodka, lemon/lime juice, simple syrup), but you can’t go wrong with any drink on the menu.

8. Living the Good Life, Carson City, NV

Live music, scrumptious food, and delicious cocktails. This is how one lives the good life in Carson City, Nevada, at Living the Good Life cocktail bar. Enjoy the refreshments and regularly scheduled live entertainment.

9. Pier 111 Bar, Incline Village, NV

Spend a day on Lake Tahoe at Pier 111 Bar. Located behind the Hyatt Hotel in Incline Village, this floating bar has a fun, casual atmosphere with good food and better drinks. Can’t choose what to order? Consider the Lava Flow with Rum.
