Golden Nugget - The Real Deal :

Right in the heart of downtown Las Vegas, the Golden Nugget epitomizes old-school class. Where the neighboring Binions has a rustic saloon sawdust feel, the Nug is plush. Great rooms, all reasonably priced, great food, great service and great action. You simply cannot go wrong at the Golden Nugget.

Location of Golden Nugget:

In the heart of Glitter Gulch, baby. It don't get any better than this.

Cool Stuff About Golden Nugget:

One of the oldest, and still classiest joints in Vegas... we love The Nug.
Home of the not so reality TV show "The Casino"

Golden Nugget History

Opened in 1946 at a then astounding $1,000,000 price tag, the Golden Nugget has weathered every possible storm Vegas can muster, yet, like a fine wine only gets better with age. From Steve Wynn's bajillion dollar renovation in the late 80's to the recent 'Rat-Pack Style' re-branding of the property by dot com bajillionaires Tim Breitling and Tom Poster (including the hi-larous reality TV Show 'The Casino' and their luvable goofball host Tommy Sundstrum). Tim and Tom sold the Golden Nugget to Landry's Restaurants about a year after they bought it.

From its agressive odds, to its delicious Wheel of Fortune slots over towards the North West entrance by the mini change desk (we hit some big numbers there) to the gorgeous new additions to the casino, to its plush yet affordable rooms, to the delicious Turkey burger at the Carson Street Cafe, the Nug delivers. Some of the blackjack dealers can be a bit cranky, but the gaming experience overall kicks ass.

Who needs the Strip anyways... We love the Nug.


The Rooms at Golden Nugget

The Nug offers a bunch of different rooms, depending on your bankroll and desires. The standard rooms are very competitively priced, considering what you get in Nugginess. They have some Spa Suites, but you have to give them a grip of action before they unlock those doors for you on a weekend night.

Restaurants at Golden Nugget

The Golden Nugget has completely upgraded all of their food offerings since the property was bought by Landry's restaurants.

One late night after a long blackjack/rum coke sesh at the Plaza, we headed over to the Nug for some eats. Over a tremendously delicious Turkey Burger (our compliments to the Chef) at the Carson Street Cafe that VegasTripping.com was born. Good food inspires good ideas... nuff said. The Nug rocks no matter where you eat or what you order... its gonna be good.


Golden Nugget Tips

Nearly all of the bars, restaurants, casino areas and the pool have been completely refurbished in the last two years. The end result is an even better Golden Nugget than even we thought possible.
