Moody’s in downtown Truckee is all about the three B’s — bistro, bar and beats. In fact that’s the popular establishment’s formal name: Moody’s Bistro, Bar & Beats (but locals just call it Moody’s). Occupying the lower half of the historic (and maybe haunted?) Truckee Hotel, you can hit Moody’s any time: lunch, happy hour, dinner or late-night grooving to live jazz.

Not hungry enough for a full meal? Grab a place at the bar with a friend, order a craft beer or custom cocktail and share a selection or two off the small-plate menu. If a full dinner is the plan for the night, Moody’s dining room can accommodate larger groups of diners yet retains a cozy feel. Moody’s has emphasized farm-to-fork ingredients before it was a thing. And just like its food, the live music is tastefully curated and presented in the bar-and-lounge.
