Toads Bar

Bruce Sellars, co-owner

306 E. William St.


Hours of operation: 11 a.m. to close, Monday Saturday; 9 a.m. to close Sunday

What we do: I’m one of three owners, along with my sons Mike and Bruce Sellars. I bar tend and manage the bar. We have teams for pool tables and darts.

Why we opened our business in Carson City: We’ve been wanting to open a bar. We’ve had family members who owned bars. We want to be a part of the community by joining the chamber of commerce. We also want to start catering liquor bars for parties, such as weddings or other special events.

Experience: Family experience. My aunt and uncle have owned several, and I worked for them part-time. We have another relative who owns a bar.

My business motto: To be an asset for Carson City and have a safe atmosphere.

Any changes in the bar? We went in and totally remodeled the inside, at a cost of about $30,000 for 1,400 square feet. We put in a new bar with a back mirror. We put in new carpets and new tile. We paneled the main bar. We changed up a lot of the interior decoration.
