Bank Saloon Press Release
Nevada Builders Alliance, owner of the Bank Saloon building in Carson City, has announced that local restaurateur Richard Bragiel will be the new operator of the historic Bank Saloon in downtown Carson City.
The Bank Saloon, at 5th and Carson Streets, is scheduled to open next month after extensive renovation. It was purchased by the Builders Alliance in 2018. The commercial brokerage of NAI Alliance Carson City was the listing agent and secured the tenant. For more information on the Bank Saloon visit www.banksaloonnv.com.
After moving to Carson City in 2015, Richard Bragiel and his wife Catherine, opened Mangia Tutto in 2018, an Italian-style restaurant which brings Chicago favorites such as the signature ‘deep-dish’ pizza to Carson City. Now, Bragiel will operate Bank Saloon which will serve Nevada-themed craft cocktails, fine wine and spirits in a unique and elegant setting.
“I am very honored and excited to be part of such an amazing project and to contribute to the impressive history of this property,” said Bragiel. “From my first meeting with Aaron West of the Nevada Builders Alliance, we were on the same page as to the conceptual design and operation for Bank Saloon and I’m looking forward to bringing that vision to life.”
The bar’s design is focused on revitalizing the property, formerly Jack’s Bar, as the Bank Saloon and how it originally opened in 1899. It will include a full-service bar, patio seating and a separate conference room for meetings or private events.
With the help of Frame Architecture and Miles Construction, Nevada Builders went to work re-vitalizing the iconic landmark which is on the National Registry of Historic Buildings. The Bank Saloon is set for an October grand opening and is located at 418 South Carson Street, corner of 5th and Carson.
