The CommRow center in downtown Reno has recently re-opened to feature an updated look to its two clubs and bars. This non-casino facility still has the tallest outdoor climbing wall in the world as well as several indoor climbing walls, but nightime is when this place heats up.

There are several bars at CommRow. The V15 is a full bar where you can also go rock climbing. The bar has a view of downtown Reno as well as a great menu of beers and cocktails. The Lucky Lounge pays homage to old Reno with a bar serving old-school cocktails and American whiskeys. Try a sazerac, gimlet or negroni. The Martini Bar serves up the classy cocktail in various forms. The Orale Tequila bar offers more than 100 different tequilas as well as artisan crafted blancos, reposados and añejos. Both classic and seasonal margaritas are available and are only made with fresh fruit and juices – no sour mix is allowed. The mixologists are so dedicated to agave-worship that they've created an entire line of old-school cocktails using tequila as the base.
