Golden Gate: Rebuilding a Las Vegas icon

Golden Gate: Rebuilding a Las Vegas icon

The famed Downtown hotel-casino is due for a major expansion

The iconic Golden Gate Hotel & Casino – one of Las Vegas’ original hotels – will continue its storied 111-year legacy with a major expansion.

Golden Gate will close for a brief period at the end of this month, as developers nearly double the casino size with an expanded all-slot floor.

Merging modern design and gaming with the Downtown property’s illustrious history, the renovation will also add a dramatic entry way on Fremont Street Experience and extend the venue’s outdoor bar.

“Since opening in 1906 as Hotel Nevada, Golden Gate has played a key role in the growth and success of Downtown Las Vegas,” said CEO Derek Stevens. “We are thrilled to continue Golden Gate’s incredible narrative and evolution, while also contributing to the area’s ongoing revitalisation.”

The history of Las Vegas’ original casino, which opened its doors at One Fremont Street more than a century ago, spans the roaring 20s, Prohibition, the Rat Pack era and now the 21st century.

This will mark Golden Gate’s second major expansion in more than 50 years – the first being the addition of a five-story luxury hotel tower, new lobby and exterior in 2012.

Totally Gaming says: Golden Gate is a true Las Vegas icon, and the property’s latest renovation has underlined the ongoing resurgence of the city’s famed Downtown area. While the expansion will no doubt translate to added revenues for the venue, CEO Derek Stevens has not lost sight of Golden Gate’s heritage, and the expanded slot floor is being designed with the facility’s storied history in mind.
