A Special Note from the Owner of
The Historic Delta Saloon & Café

To Our Loyal Patrons and Friends,

As you may have heard, The Delta Saloon & Café suffered a catastrophic explosion that destroyed over a third of the entire building on March 12, 2019. The cause of this event is being investigated by several experts in the field.

By the Grace of God, one of our beloved team members was in the building during the explosion and escaped with minor physical injuries.

As the Owner and Steward of this incredible Building, the safety of our staff, customers, visitors and the whole of the Virginia City community is my first priority and will remain so during the reconstruction.

My apologies to the many good people that have upcoming events booked. Please contact our event coordinator so that she may re-accommodate you.

Just as we have had to endure so much unwarranted and unnecessary hardships these past years, I remain undaunted and steadfast and committed to this property and to Virginia City.

Rest assured that I will do everything possible to restore this Historic jewel back to its original grandeur so that it may retake its place as one of the most Historic buildings in one of the most Historic places in the Country.

A special thanks to Tina Perkins and her family of staff for always doing the right thing and caring so much for these properties and the community.

I extend my invitation to all of you to come and enjoy our sister property, The Bonanza Saloon & Café across the street. Come see Tina and her staff, enjoy the 100 Mile View from our deck and enjoy a Sarsaparilla. And yes, we saved the most Historic relics, The famous Suicide Table and The World’s Fair Globe which are proudly on display at The Bonanza.

I will keep you all informed on the progress of the restoration of The Delta. You may follow this progress on our website and other social media outlets.

Again, I appreciate all of your well wishes from around the world and am humbled by your support.

Take notice of our Baseball caps, proudly worn by staff and friends that say,


Best regards to all,
Vincent “Doc” Malfitano
