Great collection of Victorian pickle casters (elaborate glass and metal table jars for pickles) above the bar. Large selection of Bucket of Blood branded t-shirts and sweatshirts, also.

Bucket of Blood Saloon

They have live music on Saturdays or Sundays. "Comstock Cowboys" is a fun local band that often plays at the Saloon. Locals in period Old west costumes dance to the music in the bar. Fun to hang out and watch, listen. To get a table there it is a two-drink minimum, but you can get cheap whiskey.
