A longstanding tradition in the UK is to spend time in the local pub, and this practice/hobby/pastime has come to the Silver State as numerous Nevada pubs have sprung up throughout the state. Both locals and UK tourists agree that life is better with a pint or two, great food, close mates and televised soccer. Here are nine delightful UK Nevada pubs that will transport you across the pond.
