Had a great time at the bucket of Blood Saloon

Had a great time at the bucket of Blood Saloon, and don't think I will forget about it for a long time. Ran into Toppers, Miners, and lots of Tourist, all having a good time.

With a name like Bucket of Blood Saloon, who wouldn't want to go in and have a drink. There are many aspects that I liked very much including the history, photographs on the wall, and some of the other historical artifacts on display. However, after awhile the feeling of an overly, touristy, gift shop became too obvious. Boxes stacked behind... More

Great place to hang out and have a few drinks. Towards the back end of the bar they have couple of tables next to a huge window with breathtaking views. Friendly service. Friendly crowd. Reasonably priced drinks. They always have free popcorn for their customers which is a plus. Definitely try their Bloody Mary.

Our first stop, we got Bloody Mary's before our bus tour. Old historic mixed with fun loving modern. You have to see it! The bar is from the mid 1850's as is most of this town. Get a drink and take the bus tour, you won't regret it!

It's a must stop every time I'm able to visit Virginia City and this visit was no different. People dressed in era clothing, decor and there was even a band playing on this visit. Such a nostalgic place.

If you're in Virginia City on the weekend be sure to stop in at the Bucket of Blood to listen to the Comstock Cowboys. Usually there on weekends. You can check the Comstock Cowboys website to make sure. That's where I always bring my out of town company to experience the true feel of the western town. It's free as... More

The room had older style casino games and a window view. The drinks were good and the bartenders were very nice. You felt the history when you walked in! I would have loved to stay longer and sit at the bar awhile. I'll have to come back and do that soon. The whole street makes you want to just hang... More

Has wonderful local entertainment..and really cold beer. Very touristy in the summer but most people seem to go for just the day so it cleared out pretty early... Got to hang with some colorful locals later.
