Mr. Derek Stevens explained how the 111-year-old property now possesses all modern amenities while still maintaining its vintage feel. The expansion features 91 new slot machines, and a 360-degree, 24-foot television tower which frames a beautiful chandelier, all accessible through the newly designed entrance from Fremont Street. The property’s outdoor bar, OneBar, was also extended by 20-feet and is now only one foot shorter than downtown’s longest bar, located at the D Casino Hotel.

This was just the beginning of more downtown renovations thanks to Stevens, as he is working on a new hotel-casino project across from Golden Gate, currently occupied by the now-closed Mermaids and Las Vegas Club.
