The home of the 99 cent shrimp cocktail is about to undergo an expansion. The Golden Gate, Las Vegas’ oldest casino founded in 1906, is adding a 35,000-square-foot, five-story tower. Inside, 16 new hotel suites with two penthouses taking over the fifth floor. This marks the Downtown casino’s first expansion in 50 years.
Once completed this July, the renovations bring an extended casino floor and new high-limit gaming pit that will feature dancing dealers, what the casino describes as “a modern throwback to flappers of the Roaring ’20s.”
The new lobby will give guests a look at the historic landmark’s past.
But one thing will remain the same. “The Golden Gate also vows to preserve its famous shrimp cocktail — the ‘Best Tail in Town” — which the company introduced to the casino scene in the 1950s.
The Golden Gate is also home to Du-Par’s Restaurant and Bakery Kitchen.
