The 5 Star Saloon has been welcoming gays and lesbians in Northern Nevada since 1971 and was named that area's best gay hang out by the Reno News & Review. On the weekends the bar turns into a dance club, complete with DJs, dance floor, stage, cage and dancer poles.
Sunday nights mean open mics and drink discounts. The bar puts on changing nightly events like a Divas Tribute Night and Wine Walk and hosts karaoke on Wednesday and Thursday nights.
The Patio Bar is for those over 21 only. It's got darts, pool, a jukebox, and karaoke Tuesday through Saturday. Check out the covered deck in nice weather at this well-established Reno gay bar.
Carl's The Saloon sponsors special events, like fundraisers to fight AIDS, beer busts, and Pride parties. But on regular days, it's a friendly bar for locals with pizza, pool and great adult beverages.
