I am curious what you think are Nevada’s best bars. You know, the historic ones that have character, ghosts and great stories to tell.
I just put down an Arizona Highways magazine article that names what it calls "The Magnificent Seven" bars of territorial Arizona. They are:
1. The Crystal Palace Saloon in Tombstone.
2. Paul & Jerry’s in Jerome.
3. Zane Grey Barrom in Flagstaff.
4. Palace Saloon in Prescott.
5. Drift Inn in Globe.
6. Grand Hotel, Bisbee.
7. Copper Queen Saloon, Bisbee.
So, what would be your picks in Nevada? There might be a story in there somewhere. But most likely, it will give me a goal as I travel the state. I know there’s a peculiar looking bar in Mina that you can see from the roadside, but I’ve never stopped there. Pioche, Ely, Austin, Genoa, Tonopah, Elko, Virginia City and a dozen more cities certainly have watering holes with stories to tell.
Let’s get a good list going. What do you recommend?
