Living and sleeping like a real casino millionaire. See, that's something unique. And it has recently been possible in Las Vegas (yes, where else!).
In Downtown Las Vegas you can now rent the apartment from casino legend Jackie Gaughan. During his lifetime (October 24, 1920 – March 12, 2014), Gaughan owned several illustrious casinos. He became a cheerful and whistling millionaire and is one of the most famous casino bosses in the history of Las Vegas. Incidentally, the gambling magnate Meneer Casino looks a bit like John Cleese in appearance.
At one point, Gaughan claimed to have owned about 25 percent of the property in the old town center. Yummy.
Jackie, the son of a bookmaker, also lived happily in Downtown Las Vegas for almost his entire life, including 25 years in the special suite that you can now rent.
The stately suite of Gaughan is located on the 15th, and also top, floor of hotel-casino El Cortez. This casino is one of the oldest gambling establishments in Las Vegas.
Special about the suite is the phenomenal view of the city, but even more special is the interior of the flat itself. This is from the time that Gaughan moved in with his wife Roberta Mae in 1980. That's why:
"One of the bathrooms features a marble tub with gold fixtures, water spouting from the mouth or a golden swan.
The original kitchen appliances remain too. So, too, does an old intercom system that was state-of-the-art nearly 40 years ago. "
But in the apartment of more than 250 square meters you will also find old pink walls, old pink curtains, old pink pillows and old pink lamps and a bar. Remarkable: the televisions have been updated to 2017. Maybe Jackie Gaughan still had black and white TVs?
You cannot book the suite on the El Cortez website. You have to call the reception and ask for it explicitly. Make sure you have a good budget, because an overnight stay starts from $ 500.
The only drawback of this suite: the casino of El Cortez is not exactly a luxury gambling palace à la Bellagio. Judging yourself? Watch the video!
