Sip Beer And Mingle With Ghosts In One Of Nevada’s Oldest, Most Haunted Bars
Nevada is definitely home to its fair share of haunted destinations. From creepy old ghost towns to haunted hotels, there are simply a ton of ghost stories to uncover in our state. However, one of the most unique belongs to this old haunted bar. Located in one of the most historic cities in the state, this saloon definitely
looks like it would be haunted. However, it’s a fun place to spend a few hours sipping on drinks regardless of whether you believe the legends or not. Take a look and decide for yourself if you’d be up for visiting this old haunt.
Step back in time to the days of the Wild West when you visit the historic Bucket of Blood Saloon in Virginia City. Despite its sinister name, this old bar isn't
that scary. If anything, you're bound to fall in love with its old-fashioned charm.
Believe it or not, the Bucket of Blood has been slinging drinks since 1876. The saloon was built the year following the massive Great Fire of 1875. Although the bar has certainly gone through a number of changes over the years, the structure remains a piece of living history in Virginia City.
Once inside, you'll really feel like you've been transported to the 19th century. The bar still resembles a rough n' tumble saloon, complete with vintage decor and furniture. You can almost feel the history of this place lingering in the air.
Many are convinced that some of the saloon's regulars from decades past haven't quite left yet. Rumor has it that one of the saloon's previous owners, Donald, still haunts the very establishment that he helped build into the attraction it is today.
Loaded with time-worn artifacts and the spirit of the Wild West, it's not hard to see why this old bar has a haunted reputation. However, it's also a downright fun place to visit. Live music on the saloon's indoor stage provides the perfect backdrop for a thigh-slappin' good time.
No visit to a saloon is complete without ordering an ice cold beer to enjoy at the bar. However, Bucket of Blood is most famous for their iconic Bloody Marys, and after just one taste you'll see why.
Virginia City may be considered one of the most haunted locations in Nevada, but it's also one of the most fun to visit. Bucket of Blood Saloon proves just that. Sure, you may run into a ghost or two, but that would just make your experience all the more memorable!
