Carson Range

The Grid Bar & Grill

By far, one of the coolest places to hang out in the Carson Range area is The Grid Bar & Grill in Kings Beach. Whether you're headed out to Tahoe or back in again, this is an essential stop! They have some of the most delicious items on the menu, including pastrami burgers that are so juicy and good, fish tacos that are fresh and delicious, and waffle fries that go great with everything! The drinks are super cheap and they're always open late so this is one of the best places to get your drink on in this area of the map. The portions are nice and large here too and the service is excellent.

Overlook Bar

Overlook Bar is a really fun place to stop when you're traveling through the Carson Range area with Sacramento Party Bus. They've got specialty drinks that you'll never forget, including a hot apple pie and a dirty snowman! Obviously the closeness to the ski hills is the major plus at this establishment, and you'll enjoy sipping hot cocoa after a few times down the slopes! They're got s'mores kits for sale at the bar too which you can then take to the fire pit and roast yourself a bit of deliciousness. Clearly you can tell that this spot is something special and a must-visit during your Sacramento Party Bus trip!

Cabana Bar

Cabana Bar is truly a unique spot with some of the most incredible drinks that you will ever taste. Our personal fave is the killer Bloody Mary which includes prawns, onions, olives, and celery. Huge and delicious! The close vicinity to the skating rink means that you can do a little bit of people watching while you enjoy your drinks. They've got s'mores at the fire pits too, which is an essential experience to have when traveling in this area! The prices can be a bit high here but believe us when we say that it's worth every penny. If you've got the urge to splurge, this is your spot.

Tradewinds Cocktail Lounge & Motel

Tradewinds Cocktail Lounge & Motel is such an old fashioned slice of the past! We just love this place. Not only is it a convenient place to stay when you're traveling in the area with Sacramento Party Bus but it's also a great place to drink even if you don't have a room there. They've got everything here from the old classics to new specialty drinks and the bartenders are really friendly and smart. They've got live music some nights of the week and it's a wide array of styles so there's something for everybody. Within walking distance of most things on King's Beach!

Chocolate Bar

Chocolate Bar is often the last stop that Sacramento Party Bus customers make on their Carson Range trips with us, making it a sweet dessert for the entire trip! It's not just sweets here, though the brownies and pound cakes and chocolate fondues will certainly grab your attention. They've also got delicious cheese platters and incredible drinks such as mango-infused martinis. Everything that they serve here is decadent and dessert-worthy, but if you've got a real sweet tooth, you might just want to skip dinner and make a whole meal out of it. Excellent salads here too, and microbrews as well!
