Reno, Nevada, is a city that's widely known for its entertaining attractions. From the city's casinos to its restaurants and nightclubs, there are always things to do in town, no matter the time of day or night. No Reno guide can cover all of this city's attractions. However, there are a few spots worth highlighting that represent some of the more enjoyable aspects of the city.
With its location in a high desert valley, Reno nights can get a bit cool. Residents of the city know how to heat things up by enjoying some of the best clubs that the city has to offer. BuBinga Lounge is a dance club and lounge located on the mezzanine level of the Eldorado Hotel Casino on N. Virginia St. that's the perfect example of what Vegas nightlife has to offer. There's plenty of dancing, live bands and DJs adding the fuel needed for this trendy hotspot. Two bars line the walls, and a VIP area upstairs oversees the action below.
While the nightclubs are typically innovative, the casinos in town have an old-school vibe that honors the city's long gambling history. John Ascuaga's Nugget Resort and Casino is one of the premier casinos in town, making it a good choice for inclusion in any guide to Reno. It offers a combination of a beautiful resort experience with a casino floor that is filled with games. There are many other things to do while enjoying the resort other than gambling. Depending on the time of year, there are great deals at the farmer's market, fun at the Reno Rodeo and excitement at the air races.
It should come as no surprise that residents of this city have some incredible restaurants available to them. For fine dining, it's difficult to beat offerings like the 4th St. Bistro or La Strada, touted as one of the 10 best Italian restaurants in the United States. Restaurants like this are the perfect addition to any Reno guide, because meals at places of such high caliber become events in and of themselves.
