The Sahara – Las Vegas Vintage Chic


Uploaded on September 13, 2011 by maxbuddenbrock

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.

A-list Performers, Ames Brothers, Ann-Margret, Back Page Magazine, Betsy Drake, Cary Grant, Charlie McCarthey, Christine Jorgensen, Dean Martin, Demolition, Edgar Bergen, Elizabeth Taylor, Elvis Presley, George Burns, Grace Kelly, Hotel And Casino, Images, Johnny Carson, Travel & Outdoors
