California - The Real Deal :
Nice downtown gaming vibes. The Cal (like most downtown joints) caters to the Hawaiian/Asian clientele. Be sure to check out the Golden Arm Hall of Fame on the bridge over to Main Street Station. Its a display of plaques given to craps players who rolled the dice for an hour or more. Very cool.
Location of California:
Just off Fremont Street on Ogden Ave... a short walk but surely worth it... You can also take a bridge to the Main Street Station from here.
Cool Stuff About California:
Read our detailed review of the rooms at the California.
A bridge connects the Cal to Main Street Station right across the street.
The Cal features shuttle service to Sam's Town.
Opened in 1975 by the Boyd Family (owners of Sam's Town, Fremont, Stardust, Barbary Coast, Jokers Wild Casino, Main Street Station. The Orleans and other properties in Vegas) the California Casino has a distinctly Hawaiian flavor.
The Rooms at California
The Cal has 781 rooms, and was last renovated in 2008. Offerings include standard rooms, mini-suites and full suites. The rooms are cozy (small) clean (yet somewhat little smelly) and vintage (but with brand new decor) but you really can't beat the good vibes by the staff and the price (cheap). Gotta say, the new rooms there are pretty spiffy.
Restaurants at California
Lots of Island cuisine and tropical drinks. Market Street Cafe offers standard coffee shop styled fare 24-7, The RedWood Bar & Grill is The Cal's steakhouse option, Pasta Pirate - Italian Cuisine, and the Cal Club offers quick bites for on-the-go types. Be sure to check out Dave's Aloha Bar for some tasty island treats on the mezannine near the sportsbook.
Be sure to check out the "Golden Arm" Wall of Fame, which honors the best craps players at the Cal on the bridge that heads to Main Street Station.
