Historical Las Vegas Downtown Casino Map

Last updated: May 15, 2007

This is a map of existing, former, and if there ever are any, future casino sites in downtown Las Vegas. This map is partially, but not exactly, to scale.

This map is basically a downtown version of the Historical Las Vegas Strip Casino Map. However, because of the long history of gambling in downtown Las Vegas and the layout, many casino names are kind of scrunched.

For the most part I'm trying to put the casino on the correct city block. Anything beyond that is gravy. When an existing casino has gone by previous incarnations on that site, the now defunct casino name is offset slightly from the existing one. For defunct casinos on a given site, those that are left justified were on the same site or had the same address.

For example, on the same block with the Golden Nugget, as best I can figure it, the California Club and Friendly Club occupied the same site (at different times), as did the 49'er Club and Fortune Club, and as did the Frontier Club, Nevada Club, and Lucky Casino. Over time these were all absorbed into what is now the Golden Nugget. Note, though, that the locations of the names of the casinos on this block don't accurately represent where they were located within the block.

Finally, not all casinos are listed. For example, Sassy Sally's is excluded, as is La Bayou and Mermaids. Basically, the minimum criterion for inclusion is that at one time the casino must have either had hotel rooms or table games. So, the Coin Castle qualifies, Sassy Sally's doesn't.

I've seen a photograph of the downtown area near where the Pioneer was, and there appears to be a casino called the Lucky Strike, but I can't find any information on it. It may be what I have listed as the Lucky Club may actually be the Lucky Strike. Or it might be a small casino called the Lucky Nevada Club. Anyone know anything?

I found a reference that indicated that the Gold Spike closed (presumably briefly), in 1993. Anyone know anything about that?
