The Genoa Bar & Saloon, “Nevada’s Oldest Thirst Parlor” is the Oldest Saloon within the oldest permanent settlement within the present state of Nevada. Genoa was first established as a trading post in 1851. Out of sheer necessity a saloon came quickly thereafter. The year was 1853 and establishment was named “Livingston’s Exchange”. Since that time the saloon has changed many hands and all the while maintaining it’s position as Genoa’s central purveyor of spirits and revelry.
