Vegas Club - The Real Deal :
The Vegas Club is known for two things - some of the most "liberal" blackjack rules in Vegas and its historic Sports Book. While it may have "liberal" rules, they're also a little suspect and bordering on the Carnival Game area - tons of weird side bets and strange payouts on naturals. Be sure to read the signs posted on each table before you plunk your money down.
Location of Vegas Club:
On the corner of Fremont and Main Streets, just across the street from The Plaza and The Golden Gate, next to Binions.

Vegas Club History
Built on the site of the Overland Hotel (1905), The Las Vegas Club is one of the oldest joints in Las Vegas. In the 1960's the Las Vegas Club had its first wave of major renovations - it was designed to emulate the great Ebbets Field, home of the Brooklyn Dodgers, by its original owners Mel Exber and Jackie Gaughan. It's sportsbook was one of the hotspots of Las Vegas from the 1950's until the 1990's when its prominence began to wane. The Las Vegas Club's hotel consisted of 200 rooms until a 1995 expansion doubled that number.
The Rooms at Vegas Club
The Las Vegas Club offers a decent mix of rooms in its 200 room hotel. Nothing too fancy really. Basically a bed, TV and a shower. A random midweek check of rates pegged the prices at $149/night (monday & tuesday) - seems a little steep for what you get.
Petite Suite - double bed, private bathroom, television and a teeny weeny desk.
Full Suite - 1 or 2 bedrooms, 4 poster bed, lounge, TV, bathroom.
Restaurants at Vegas Club
No bachelor party trip to Vegas would be complete without the Groom-to-Be taking a stab at the famous 9LB Burger at the Las Vegas Club's eatery The Upper Deck. Sink your face into a slab of meat, lettuce, tomatos, bun and a mountain of french fries. We'll bet you 10$ you can't finish it.
Other options include : Mahalo Express - decent Hawaiian cuisine, Great Moments Room a vintage Vegas dining experience combining American and French Cuisine - good food and a nice price, Seventh Inning Scoop - ice cream.
