It’s been just over four months since the Sahara Hotel and Casino was forced to close its doors in Sin City. On the day of its closure, the Las Vegas relic was the oldest remaining hotel and casino on the Strip.
Back in the 1950s, the Sahara served as the training grounds for some of America’s most beloved and treasured entertainers, including Frank Sinatra, Don Rickles, and Johnny Carson.
However, the half-century old mainstay was forced to close in May amid economic turmoil the likes of which had never been seen before in Las Vegas.
But now, for the first time since May, there appear to be signs of life at the old Sahara.
In recent months, owners have paid off debt owed on the property and have assigned a team of architects to explore all avenues when it comes to rehabilitating the Las Vegas icon. While nothing is concrete just yet, it’s good to know that there is still some life left in the old Sahara after all.
