Is the newest, oldest casino resort coming to Henderson? The venerable Skyline Restaurant & Casino in Henderson is looking to add a two-story, 35-room hotel to the rear of the property creating a major upgrade for the old-school gambling joint.
A disused single-story hotel already exists behind the property and new plans propose to link the new rooms to the casino and the Skyline's restaurant via an air-conditioned walkway.
Created in 1964, the Skyline has proved a locals favorite, expanding over the past 50 years from its humble 4,000 square feet to its current 25,000-square-foot interior. The 12,289-square-foot restaurant with its classic diner menu was noted for its now defunct $5.95 prime rib dinner deals, but is now promoting an all you can eat "BBQ pork ribs" special for $9.95.
The casino also offers a barber shop, a handful of gaming tables, a banquet room and has been a regular home for performances of The Dummkopfs, a local musical comedy band who dress in lederhosen and perform "Bavarian classics in the wild slapstick tradition of Spike Jones."
The hotel expansion proposal is making its way through the City of Henderson approval process.
