The Flamingo Las Vegas is a piece of Vegas history. The Flamingo was the 3rd resort to ever open on the Las Vegas Strip and is currently the oldest resort on the Strip! Originally constructed by infamous gangster Bugsy Siegel, The Flamingo Las Vegas was actually named after Bugsy’s girlfriend Virginia Hill, who he nicknamed The Flamingo because of her long, skinny legs. The Flamingo brings to mind images of South Beach, Miami, including a wildlife habitat featuring real flamingos, swans, koi and turtles! You will feel immersed in Vegas culture if you stay in one of the Flamingo’s 3,000+ rooms; for a special treat check out one of their new Go Rooms. The 77,000 square foot Caribbean style casino offers everything you could ever want in a Vegas casino.
Over the years many world-famous entertainers have graced the stage at the Flamingo, including Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis and Nat King Cole. Today the Flamingo Las Vegas keeps that tradition of stars alive with shows by Donny and Marie Osmond, famous stand-up comedian George Wallace, psychic John Edwards and the sexy X Burlesque showgirls show. You can enjoy the beautiful private cabanas at the Flamingo Go Pool surrounded by waterfalls and lagoons, or have a delicious cocktail right in the center of the gorgeous lagoons in the Garden Bar. Head to Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville for a Cheeseburger in Paradise or just for a night of delicious cocktails and dancing to live music. Head to Carlos’N Charlies for tacos and tequila, and dance away the night. For a taste of authentic Japanese cuisine, head to Hamada of Japan and watch a professional knife-swinging chef perform tricks as he prepares your dinner right before your eyes.
For an unforgettable Vegas experience, (and I do mean unforgettable), get a tattoo at O’shea’s Vince Neil Ink, the oldest tattoo parlor on the Las Vegas Strip. If you need to recharge your batteries, enter the Flamingo Spa and Fitness Center for a rejuvenating and relaxing experience that will stay with you for days after your trip. Whatever your reason for visiting Vegas, the Flamingo Las Vegas gives you a chance to be a part of Vegas history by staying in the Las Vegas Strip’s oldest resort. Feel the legacy of Bugsy Siegel and the original mobsters who created Las Vegas, and see how that world meshes with the family friendly fun that Las Vegas is known for today. You can bridge the gap between two worlds at the Flamingo Las Vegas, and have a fabulous time in the heart of Las Vegas.
