{Good Bye Sahara of Las Vegas}

Vintage Post Card of Sahara

The Sahara Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas has closed, slated for demolition or re-brand and extensive re-model. While perhaps not quite as retro-cool as The Sands or The Dunes, the Sahara still exemplified the “Vegas Baby” vibe of the 50s and 60s and hosted numerous A-list performers including members of the legendary “Rat Pack.”
                   Here is a walk down Memory Strip, with some nostalgic photos of a bygone era. Unless otherwise noted, these photographs are from the Nevada News Bureau archives.
