Genoa Bar and Saloon Lake Tahoe Stays True to the Good Old Days


Features: Genoa Bar Tahoe brings a dose of history with their venue, having stood in the same location since the mid-1800s. Cheap drinks and a laid-back, "good old days" vibe attract both locals and tourists.

Why We Go: For those unimpressed with swanky new digs and expensive new prices, the Genoa Bar and Saloon in Genoa, NV sticks true to the old western saloon days of yore. To experience that blast to the past and not have to smoke your cigarette in a designated area, the Genoa Bar is where it's at.

  • Happy Hour: Although the prices at Genoa Bar and Saloon Lake Tahoe are already very fair, the happy hour prices allow patrons to save even more.
  • History Lesson: Besides the historical nature of the building and the borderline ghost town atmosphere of Genoa, the Genoa Bar Tahoe is a fascinating continuously operated western saloon that remains genuine to its roots. Legendary singers such as Johnny Cash, John Denver, and Willie Nelson have played here. Mark Twain reported from Genoa. Presidents Ulysses S. Grant and Teddy Roosevelt visited this popular dive.
  • Convenient Gambling: In case you forget that you're in Nevada and not California anymore, slots and video poker machines are available at Genoa Bar and Saloon Lake Tahoe for those that want to scratch that gambling itch.

Inside Knowledge: The Genoa Bar South Tahoe still employs a wood stove to warm up the cold nights in the wintertime. 

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Try the Jukebox: Although slightly more modern than the rest of the building, playing some oldies really sets the mood at Genoa Bar Tahoe.
  • Do Get Some Fresh Air: Because smoking is allowed inside, and the ventilation is not quite up to modern standards, it can get very smokey. If that's not your cup of tea, feel free to enjoy the outdoor seating and the fresh, cold Nevada air.
  • Don't Try to Dance: The Genoa Bar and Saloon in Genoa, NV is not really geared towards the modern nightclub approach, and as such, any attempts of dancing should be reserved for the streets.
  • Don't Check Out the Relics: When we say that the Genoa Bar is a historical place, we're not kidding. The oldest continuously operating thirst parlour in Nevada has some true gems on the walls denoting the days of old.
