SPARKS -- Construction work continues on a new western saloon and bar called "Gilley's" at the Nugget. Nugget CEO and president Carlton Geer said the attraction will open the second week in June before the Reno Rodeo.
It will feature "a saloon, music, live entertainment, stage dancing, mechanical bull," he said.
Geer said the 11-thousand square foot facility will have a 250-seat saloon. He added Gilley's is only part of the renovations taking place at the Nugget. He said a gift shop will open next month. Geer said a couple months later, a sports book, sports bar, deli and poker room will be unveiled.
Geer said the attraction is a more than five-million dollar project.
