It's five o'clock here and we're ready for happy hour and a refreshing cocktail - which inspired us to write this blog post about where to go for beer, wine and libations when you're here in our mountainous town of Truckee. So, sit back and say hello to some of our favorite go-to spots and equally commendable mixologists, bartenders and staff.
Mellow Fellow of Truckee
Go here for craft beers, board games and locally-crafted sausages, oh my! Bring your dog and your brainy side as they do trivia here and happy hour, too!
This little dive bar has shuffle board and a good lot of locals that can tell you all about Truckee. Expect nice bartenders and a lovely jukebox.
Moody's Bistro Bar & Beats
This upscale bar and restaurant is a beloved treat for passerbys and locals alike. Try the truffle deviled eggs, the ahi poke and carefully crafted cocktails such as their Jalapeno Margarita. Mmm… spicy!
This sophisticated, darkly lit gem is perfect to knock the ice off your fingertips with a jammy red or tawny port. Sit back and enjoy the urban-meets-mountain decor and go for a flight, a glass or a bottle.
Truckee Tavern and Grill
When comfort food and cocktails are the only things that might cure what ails you, come here and order The Little Pal cocktail, an Eagle Rare Whiskey and the Steak Mac and Cheese. It's all a little bit of heaven!
