We always stop here on our way threw the area. Noticed it appears cleaner. Still has the dust (character) but the cob webs were gone, ha... Great patio out front. Great history. Neat little bar, worth the stop.

This is very interesting place to visit, it's Nevada's oldest bar, and not to far from lake Tahoe. It's not a very clean place, it could definitely use a cleaning more often, with the amount of history involved.

Was in Genoa on a wonderfully pleasant Friday afternoon in late April, 2017. Did some antique shopping on the north end of town and then came across the Old Genoa bar. Simply had to go inside. The historical sign out front said the place was the oldest continuous drinkery in the state; that is, it has been a drink house... More

This could be wonderful, historic and worth time spent but it's uncomfortably filthy. It's the oldest saloon in the Nevada, it's in the first town settled in Nevada, Genoa. The town is tiny and many place are nice such as Sweet Repeats, The Pink House etc...but this Saloon revels in its dust and dirt. Ugh!

This place is a must visit. There Bloody Mary's are perfection. So much to visually see and explore, it's a step back in time.
