Historic Bank Saloon, formerly Jack’s Bar, to reopen in 2021 after 30-year hiatus
A spokesperson for the project on Monday said the Bank Saloon has a “hopeful” reopen date of Jan. 1, 2021.
“When we purchased this building, we knew it would be a fantastic opportunity to revitalize a historic building in downtown Carson City and put it to beneficial use,” Aaron West, CEO of Nevada Builders Alliance, said in a statement. “The damage to the building is extensive but we have a great partner in Miles Construction and we’re excited to return this building to its former glory and open the Bank Saloon.”
NBA and Miles Construction have already begun work on the building, undertaking structural stabilization, investigation and abatement of asbestos and begun laying out the design of the bar, which has been closed for 30 years.
The renovated building will include a full-service bar, patio seating and a separate conference room for meetings or private parties.
“It’s exciting to be part of this renovation and adaptive reuse project for the benefit of Carson City and Nevada Builders Alliance,” said Bill Miles, president and CEO of Miles Construction. “In addition to providing construction oversight, it’s rewarding for the Miles team and me to work with the construction trades and UNR engineering students in a teaching role.
“We are thrilled for NBA and everyone on the Bank Saloon team as we reach this milestone and see this project come to life.”
“The thing that I like most about entrepreneurship is I can work toward something that I’m passionate about and be at the forefront of the change that I want to see happen,” said Priyanka Senthil, a senior at Davidson Academy in Reno and co-founder of startup company AUesome.
