Gamblers Hall of Fame
When the Silver Palace casino opened in the summer of 1956, it was the first two-level club in Las Vegas, and the escalator, connecting the casino with the lower-level restaurant, was the first in Southern Nevada.
The Silver Palace gave way to Carousel Casino in July 1964, followed by Gambler's Hall of Fame Casino in 1974. In 1976 the property became Sundance West, followed by Sassy Sally's in 1980. In 1999, owner Herb Pastor decided to move ahead with a renovation plan to transform it into Mermaids, and renovate his nearby Coin Castle casino into La Bayou, for a total of $6 million.
