OVERVIEW:
The Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel and Casino is the oldest resort still operating on the Las Vegas Strip. The resort vibe is a combination of a South Beach Art Deco theme blended with some Caribbean style. Over the years, the resort has been expanded, renovated and refreshed, but the resort still embraces its rich Las Vegas history. The Flamingo’s world famous bright red and pink neon lights continue to illuminate the heart of the Vegas Strip. Its 15-acre lush habitat and pool area is a wonderful place to stroll around with a frozen concoction in your hand. The addition of the Margaritaville Casino provides another laid-back option to sip a cocktail, gamble or just chill out.
HISTORY:
Opened in December 1946, The Flamingo was the third resort and first luxury hotel to open on the Strip. Billy Wilkerson originally purchased the property with the vision of opening a European style, luxury hotel, but financial troubles drove him to seek out new investors. Seeing this as an opportunity, Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel, the famous mobster, stepped in and became a partner. Bugsy quickly took control of the project and named the new resort after his girlfriend Virginia Hill, whom Bugsy nicknamed Flamingo for her long, skinny legs. Bugsy was gunned down in Hollywood the following year, but the resort lives on.
FACTS & TIDBITS:
1. The Flamingo Las Vegas has been a shooting location for several classic Las Vegas films. The swimming pool was featured in Elvis Presley's movie, "Viva Las Vegas". The casino was featured in the original "Ocean’s Eleven" film.
HIDDEN TIPS:
Visit the Bugsy Siegel Memorial which can be found in front of the wedding chapel at the Flamingo Las Vegas. This bronze memorial plaque seems to be one of the rare places on the Strip that acknowledges The Mob’s influence on Las Vegas.

BARS:
Typically we would stay away from recommending a chain establishment, but Margaritaville Las Vegas has all the right elements to be a great place to party. If you are a Parrot Head, this place is just short of heaven. With its tropical setting right on the Vegas Strip, it's a popular hangout for people walking the Strip looking for a fun place. Go ahead and waste away, just don't start looking for your lost shaker of salt.
