Drink is our religion. We believe true grace lies in the balance of tradition and innovation. We hold dear the knowledge of our ancestors and harbor faith in what's to come. We warm our hearts with goodwill and good communion lubricated with an ever-evolving, ever-expanding host of spirits, wine and beer. Our mission is to share this joy. Redemption through revelry. Deliverance through drink. Salvation has arrived.

The Lincoln Lounge is an eclectic speakeasy-style bar straight out of the prohibition era. The outside windows are blacked out and there's no sign outside, however, the inside is posh as can be. The whole place is elegant right down to the antique sofas around the lounge. It's got the nicest shuffle board table in Reno and the beer garden out back is top notch, too. If you like, you can rent the place out for a private party. Just remember not to knock Lincoln (pictured prominently on the wall) or speak well of the theater.

Walk into the Wal, as the Little Waldorf Saloon is commonly known, and you will feel cozy and comfortable in this cabin-type restaurant and bar. From the floor to the ceiling, wood covers the area along with UNR gear, huge wood wagons, televisions tuned to sports channels and fliers promoting the restaurant’s next event. Located near the University, The Wal (established in 1922) is a favorite for students. Check out their wide variety of beers on tap or a unique shot such as a “Scooby Snack.” The restaurant has a nice crowd for lunch and is usually bustling on the weekends and during football season and always on Thursday (college) nights. The Wal also hosts special events such as trike races on Wednesdays.

Now Se7en's sole location, the tea house and bar at the West Street Market, serves a wide variety of drinks, alcoholic and non. The space is warm and versatile and is a staple of wine walks and bar crawls. One night may just be laid back, when another has DJs and live bands.
