Bucket of Blood Saloon.

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.
