OVERVIEW:
The SLS Las Vegas Hotel and Casino was opened August 23, 2014 after major renovations to the property. The hotel features over 1,600 rooms, a 60,000 sq. ft. casino, 8 restaurants, 4 lounges and bars, and 3 nightclubs. The hotel leans more to the sophisticated, trendy vibe rather then a casual one. The SLS trys to bring a LA luxury boutique hotel feel to Las Vegas while maintaining a funky Vegas vibe. If you like to monkey around, this place has a lot of monkeys. No, not real ones. Walk around, you'll see what we mean.
HISTORY:
This property was originally home to The Sahara Hotel and Casino, one of the last standing old school Las Vegas hotels. Opened in 1952, the Sahara was the place to be and be seen in the early days of Las Vegas. Celebrities from around the world visited and performed at the hotel. It was a favorite hang-out for the Rat Pack, Elvis, Johnny Carson, Clint Eastwood and many more mega celebrities. The 1960 Ocean's Eleven heist film starring Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin was filmed here. The music was classic, the drinks were strong and a party could be found every night. After 59 years, the lights went dark and the Sahara was closed on May 16, 2011. The hotel sat empty for a few years before the new owner, SBE Entertainment announced it's plan for a $415 million conversion of the hotel into the SLS Las Vegas. A year and a half later, the SLS Las Vegas Hotel and Casino opened on August 23, 2014.
FACTS & TIDBITS:
1. Outside the Sayers Club hangs a chandelier made from the letter 'S' door handles of the old Sahara hotel.

2. The strange, space starfish-looking sculpture found in the center of the porte-cochere is named "Saam".

3. A roller coaster called "Speed - The Ride" was located in front of the property (during the Sahara days). The attraction was sold and removed, but rumors have it returning to Las Vegas.
HIDDEN TIPS:
The Sayers Club is a great Intimate live music venue, located inside the SLS Las Vegas. Just outside of Sayers is the Beer Garden patio, which is a great spot to enjoy the music without being in the club.
