Dunes Hotel & Casino
3650 Las Vegas Blvd
May 23, 1955 - October 23, 1993
The Dunes hotel was a favorite of mine.
It was the first hotel I stayed in when we came to Las Vegas in 1989. I also
had the honor to eat in the Sultan’s Table restaurant which featured Arturo
Romero and his magic violins.
When the Dunes opened on May 23, 1955 it featured 200 hotel rooms, a spacious
casino, and Vera-Ellen in the Showroom. The Dunes opened at a time with too
many hotels and not enough tourists to go around. After 1 year they were forced
to closed their doors.
The Dunes reopened in June 1956, with a new burlesque show called Minsky’s
These fantastic roulette chips were used when the Dunes
opened in 1955. Sheik Frank Sinatra was Ringleader at
the Dunes grand opening...
