The Las Vegas Club is a casino-hotel located in downtown Las Vegas, Nevada owned by the Tamares Group and operated by the Navegante Group, along with the Plaza Hotel & Casino across the street.

History[edit]

The Las Vegas Club installed the first neon sign on a gambling establishment in 1931. It was only the second neon casino sign in the city.[1]

The Las Vegas Club was previously on the south side of Fremont Street, mid-way between Main and 1st. It was right next to the Northern Club which is now La Bayou.[2] In 1949 the Las Vegas Club moved across the street to the site of the Overland Hotel, eventually expanding to it's present location at the corner of Fremont & Main.[3]

On December 6, 2002 ownerJackie Gaughan agreed to sell the Las Vegas Club and three other casinos, including the Plaza and Gold Spike to Barrick Gaming.[4] Barrick was in partnership with Tamares Group.

January 19, 2007 saw the opening of a new poker room.[5] The room has since closed.

In March 2007, Tamares announced that it was considering converting the property into a high-rise condo-hotel. However, there have been no further announcements of such a conversion.[6]

On April 9, 2013, it was announced that the Las Vegas Club will be closing its hotel. The casino will remain open. The possibility of a renovation for the hotel was hinted.[7]
