it is a good place since you can be comfortable there, male or female, gay or straight, as long as you are comfortable with the whole range of sexual orientation and action. If you are offended by effeminate men, or gays in general, or straight guys, or lesbians or straight women, or 50 year olds, don't bother, Otherwise you can have a good time, the later it gets the younger and the drunker the patrons become and the wilder it gets.

Just as in most parts of life, a smile and a friendly "Hi" to the staff and other patrons, without grabbing an ass until the signal is clear, gets you alot further than an attitude, be it shy, superior. or uninvited physical attention.

Pros: drinks are good

Cons: not a single purpose gay bar, if that is what you want

This place is a chameleon bar, depending on when you show up. It is a friendly neighborhood bar on the weekdays, a quiet place to meet for an after work cocktail on weeknights and a jam-packed dance club, popular with the hipster gays and college students on weekends! They participate in the Wine Walk and the myriad of costume-themed crawls. They are also active supporters of many local non-profit organizations, such as the SPCA and the Northern Nevada Outreach Team. They give out free condoms and provide free HIV tests every quarter. This place is proof positive that a nightclub business can be both rowdy fun and socially aware.

The clientle is friendly and open to all walks of life. The bartenders are sassy and quick to welcome you by name. This place has been dubbed the "Cheers for Queers" by its fans. This place has been open for over 30 years and has customers from all over the world.

For those that have complaints, like the one below, they can contact management at (877) 878-2812 and their complaints will be quickly addressed by management. No one should ever feel they are not cool enough to be served there. The only ones not tolerated there are rude people. I know, I've worked there for over 3 years now! This is a haven of safe, friendly fun for both customers and employees and if you haven't experienced the phenomena that is the 5 Star, you are missing out on a good time.

This is one of those sleepy little joints that you and your large group can pretty much take over, and feel like you've rented the place out just for yourselves. It's quiet enough to sit and talk at the bar, but still fun and loud on the dance floor.

I started going to the 5 Star a few months ago to dance. I'm a shy person who tends to go alone, but I love to dance. The music is good when I'm there on Fridays, and the other customers are always very friendly. My main problem in the 5 Star is actually getting a drink, I can't seem to get service.
It's as if the bartenders go out of their way to let me know I am unwelcome. In particular, there is one female bartender, a young pretty girl who seems to hate my guts. After this last Friday's hostile and humiliating encounter with her I certainly won't be going back. Maybe I'd have more luck if I were a young gay man instead of an middle aged woman.

Pros: good crowd, decent music

Cons: snobby bartenders and bad service

The 5 Star Saloon came under new ownership last year and the kids who run it have completely turned it around. New bar, tabletop games and renovated facilities have changed the look, and the clientele is a great mix of the hip Reno and visitors from around the world! They sponsor events all the time, and the place gets packed on the weekends with crowds that stick around well after the sun comes up. For anyone who hasn't been down in the last year it is definitely worth your while to poke your head in and see the changes! My favorite is Thursday night, when the DJ gets loco with a wild mix of tunes and doesn't leave until we get tired!

Cons: not much lighting on the dance floor
