Treasure Island

Casino in The Strip

In recent years, TI, now privately owned, has undergone a progressive transformation away from its family friendly 'pirate' roots toward a more adult-oriented 'island' experience, although Siren's Cove, with its vague replica of an 18th-century sea village, remains. Gone is the swashbuckling theme of its expansive casino, replaced with a more stylish and subdued experience that always pulls a crowd. The property's highlights include Cirque du Soleil's classic production Mystère, and Strip-front Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N, showing the kids aren't forgotten.

There's no excuse for dying of thirst on the island, not with Señor Frog's, a rowdy Mexican cantina overlooking Siren's Cove; Gilley's Saloon & Dance Hall, a country-and-western bar and two-steppin' nightclub; and the Treasure Island Pool Bar where flair bartenders make boozy rum cocktails to keep you hydrated. Reserved for hotel guests only, TI's pool complex offers VIP cabana and daybed rentals, a huge party-friendly hot tub that can fit up to 25 people and a DJ spinning a bumpin' soundtrack on hot summer weekends. You can also unwind with a Russian banya (bath) ritual or a rejuvenating facial and massage in TI's compact Oleksandra Spa.
