Welcome to the Genoa Bar and Saloon, Nevada’s Oldest Thirst Parlor!
The Genoa Bar was built in 1853 as Livingston’s Exchange, then renamed “Fettic’s Exchange” in 1884. Bob and Betty Carver purchased the Genoa Bar in 1963 and ran it until they retired in 2000 and sold the bar to Willy and Cindy Webb.
The Genoa Bar still contains many of the original fixtures and many items are original to the building when it was first built in 1853. Many famous people have visited over the years. Among them, Mark Twain, Presidents Ulysses S. Grant and Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt, Carol Lombard, Clark Gable, Lauren Bacall, Richard Boone, Ron Howard, Red Skelton, Cliff Robertson, John Wayne, Walter Mathau, Clint Eastwood, James Caan, Kathy Bates, Rob Reiner, Richard Farnsworth, Raquel Welch and Ann-Margaret.
