Patio Bar in Reno has closed

One of the few gay bars in Reno that's an easy walk from downtown casino hotels, the Patio (600 W. 5th Ave., 775-323-6565) occupies a cozy refurbished house with, as the name indicates, also has a cheery little back patio where barbecues are sometimes held. This easygoing video bar across the street from the superbly authentic Mexican restaurant Beto's welcomes a mix of women and men (more women on Fridays, but always an all-welcoming bunch). One room to the side has a pair of pool tables, and patrons can watch videos, TV shows, and what not on monitors set around the bar's three rooms. It's a nice no-attitude option early in the evening before venturing to larger clubs, and again, ideal if you don't have wheels or would rather not drive and are staying a few blocks away on the main downtown drag, Virginia Street.
