Golden Gate information
A gambling hall and hotel have stood on this corner since 1906, one year after the whistlestop railway town of Las Vegas was founded. It didn't become the Golden Gate until 1955, when a troupe of Italian Americans from San Francisco decamped and stayed on for four decades to manage what was previously known as the 'Sal Sagev' (the city's name spelled backwards). Today the Golden Gate's hypnotic sign is almost as irresistible as its famous shrimp cocktails.
Other than 24-hour Du-Par's diner, there's nothing much to draw you in besides lively craps tables and double-deck blackjack. Look for antique one-armed bandits by the hotel's front desk.
