Gold Coast Hotel and Casino
In 1986 casino mogul Michael Gaughan built the Gold Coast from the ground up, as a part of his Coast Brand of game houses. This group was merged with the Boyd Gaming Corporation, which operates the Gold Coast resort today, in 2004.
The idea with this particular casino was to cater to the growing local population within the suburbs of Las Vegas, and it was the first casino in the city to boast its own movie theatre. There is even a bowling alley inside! Several international live acts have also performed at Gold Coast Hotel and Casino over the years, and there are many different dining options to choose from as well. To round things off, the casino’s Showroom Lounge has a relaxed cocktail lounge atmosphere, and offers regular entertainment in a well-designed and intimate venue.
