This late 1800's saloon is certainly a stop in your trip to Virginia city. We went twice. Had a few drinks. Just relaxed. This is also the entry to the mine tour. Very cool

When you find yourself in Virginia City take your time and visit the ponderosa saloon. Be sure to see the mine in back for an extra few bucks. Its worth the time for the experience.

The saloon includes a six dollar underground mine tour and being as the entrance was at the back of the bar, I wasn't expecting much but my expectations were exceeded. It was not only bigger than I expected but the tour guide made this is...More

I see many complaints, but how often are you going to be able to visit a mineshaft with a tour in the back of a bar? A little piece of history, interesting as how this town became to be, and why complain about the cost...More
