Casino-themed parties are increasingly becoming a trendy choice for proms, birthdays and other celebrations. From formal events with black tie attire to more informal gatherings with casual dress codes – vintage themes can provide an elegant setting.
The Neon Museum on North Las Vegas Boulevard provides a wonderful reminder of a time when casino signs were bright and bold, or you can experience similar nostalgia with retro slot games such as Evoplay Entertainment’s Mega Joker Classic Slot Game.
Flamingo Hotel & Casino
Since opening on Christmas day 1946, The Flamingo has become one of the most storied casino resorts on The Strip. Owned now by Caesars Entertainment and paying tribute to its historic past with neon signs and classic casino offerings like Bugsy’s Bar for cocktails with friends or placing bets at its race and sports book, it remains an iconic resort that brings visitors from across the world every year.
Rooms at this property feature wood-tone floors, contemporary chaise lounges and patterned rugs in pops of Flamingo pink for an aesthetic experience that feels welcoming and relaxing. Upgraded rooms provide additional amenities such as whirlpool tubs and breathtaking views.
Explore a tropical escape at The Flamingo’s pools, spas and wildlife menagerie of flamingos and swans; or check out GO Pool Dayclub for an intense pool party atmosphere with multiple entertainment options. There are ten restaurants and bars at The Flamingo as well, from Mexican-influenced Carlos’n Charlie’s to Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville!
Golden Gate Hotel & Casino
The Golden Gate Hotel and Casino, established in 1906, underwent its first expansion in fifty years in 2012 to give it an updated modern aesthetic while maintaining its rich heritage.
Renovation also saw the construction of a five-story luxury tower featuring premium suites. This tower’s design was inspired by its original art deco facade and features LED lighting accents resembling pinstripes from Roaring 20s pinstriping for an iconic blend of past and present.
Hotel Fremont Street is an intimate pedestrian mall filled with casinos and bars. At Fremont Street Hotel is Bar Prohibition and its more modern counterpart One Bar; both feature flair bartenders for guests to enjoy. There are also several restaurants nearby and Greyhound bus station is just two blocks away; an in-house car rental company is also available should guests wish to venture further afield.
El Cortez Hotel & Casino
El Cortez Casino in Vegas, established over 70 years ago and still running today, brings back memories of mobster legends such as Bugsy Siegel with its dark lobby lit by heavy faux-candle bronze chandeliers. While other properties in Las Vegas are continually demolished and replaced, this family-run property stands as an enduring monument for history nerds who appreciate Vegas history.
Visitors to the hotel can select either an original hotel tower room or the new Cabana Suites located in what was formerly known as Odgen House – designed specifically to appeal to younger audiences with retro-South Beach Miami theme – rooms featuring dark wood beds and dressers as well as purposefully limited bright colors for maximum comfort.

The Downtown Project can be seen as many things at once; its analysis can be conducted using various urban reinvestment models and frameworks, and it serves as an experiment in stimulating entrepreneurial energy, creativity and upward mobility within an urban environment.
Tony Hsieh, CEO of e-commerce site Zappos, emphasizes community over commerce with this project.
This philosophy can be seen throughout the project’s public spaces: hammocking spaces, fire pits, and food trucks all encourage people to linger and interact.
Tech Jelly is part of the Downtown Project’s $50 million Small-Business Development Initiative and hosts regular meetups between local entrepreneurs.
