Dirty Dick’s Belmont Saloon
You know you are in Belmont when you pass Dirty Dick’s. It is one of only a couple of businesses in town and the first one you see after the long drive from Manhattan, or Tonopah, or wherever.
In my research for the trip, I found a photo of the inside of the saloon along with a short writeup of the place. It sounded like it had a lot of character and I was looking forward to a short visit. Unfortunately, Dirty Dick’s was closed on te day I visited Belmont.
Based on saloon’s hours of operation, prominently posted on a sign next to the door, i caught the place on a rare off day.
The sign is obscured by the post in the photo above, but I grabbed a shot of it with my iPhone (below).
I’ll be winding up a week of Belmont (and one Manhattan) photos tomorrow with one of my favorite shots from the trip — a panorama Belmont Ghost Town Panorama.
lmao that’s awesome. Gotta love the personality of that place. I won’t say anything of the name of course…
Great shots Bob. I love that sign.
Great shot and processing. I like the road receding into the distance.
This saloon is really awesome they had a great kind of customer service..I would love to go in this place the ambiance is really good..
Hello, I’m so sorry when you visited our town the saloon was closed. I purchased the saloon November 2012. I was raised on a ranch over in Big Smoky Valley, I loved this place as a child and always hoped to own it one day. Well that one day came and I purchased it. My husband and I have done a lot of things to it, like a big solar plant to have power to run the place and new piping and electrical but otherwise it still has it’s charm. We are open seven days a week in the summer months May through September. The winter months we are open Wednesday through Sunday. Please see our website for hours and more information. I would love to meet you one day.
