This is the first time the Jungle has been a start bar, so let’s make sure to show them some support! A downtown staple, the Jungle consists of an eclectically-decorated coffee shop and bar located right on the Truckee River. They were one of the very first businesses in Reno to embrace Pokémon GO and it’s players, so we decided it was a great place to add as a start bar.
If you’re on Team Mystic, you’ll dig that they’ll have a photo booth set up for you to snap a pic of you and your crew. In addition they’ve got 3 Pokéstops and a gym right around them, so you’ll be able to catch a ton of Pokémon while you sip some drinks! Make sure to tell DJ Alfajor happy birthday 🙂

Harrah’s outdoor plaza, right by the historic Reno Arch, has been a start bar for several of our crawls. Their plaza holds a good number of people so you can chill with a big group and check out a live band- they’ll have the Spazmatics playing on Saturday and they’re a blast!
We’ll have a Team Instinct photo booth there, so if you’re all decked out in Yellow make sure to run by with your friends and get a photo! They’ve got a ton of Pokéstops around them and a gym that’s at the Reno Arch!

If you’re a fan of the 80’s, make sure to set aside some time to dance to Flock of 80z, or swing by later for DJ Kronik!
Our Team Valor photo booth will be set up in the front as you enter and it looks awesome! According to our sources there’s 4 Pokéstops in Silver Legacy and another 4 in or around the Eldorado which it’s attached to!
