Stopped in here 2 nights in a row. Massive selection of flavored vodkas and fun drinks. The bartenders work hard and have fun. Matty and Avery remembered our party by individual names and drinks. Well done fellas. Come here for fun they have live entertainment ( DJs, trivia, etc).

No appetizers or food of any kind. So eat before you go. They have a different event every night of the week.... More

good time for all adults that like music, spirits and dancing. The staff is polite and accommodating. Always have great bands and plenty of seating in the "like" out door seating.

I travel to Reno to visit my aunt and uncle and I haven't been there in a couple of years, but when I went down for the a week, I was looking forward to hanging out at Rum Bullions to hear the dueling pianos, but I was disappointed. The bartender said they "got rid of them 2 years ago, thank... More

Rum Bullions is one of the bar areas in Sliver Legacy. When they have an event there, it is often fun and draws a crowd. Some of the events they have are karioke or trivia. On other nights, it is slow and we usually move on to one of the other bars (such as the live music bar on the... More

We went here twice. It was fun and nice. However, caution- the drinks are POTENT. Also did the Gong Show Karaoke. The DJ's were a blast.

This bar is usually fun with good service, but not on this trip. The place was pretty much void off people and, with 2 bartenders on duty, service was void as well. Maybe it will be better on my next visit.

Obviously not every one elses cup of tea but it was fun and the atmosphere was great. Only thing I would say is that the MC's mic... More

It claims to be a rum bar... not really. We stopped by at three different times hoping for a better result. The first time the bar was packed. The waitress was quick, but the Sailor Jerry Rum and Coke had very strange taste. Second visit it was very quiet and we sat at the end of the bar. The bartender... More

This bar has entertaining dueling pianos, but the drinks are awful artificially flavored sweet glasses of chemicals with a tiny bit of booze.
