Founded in 1946 as the Flamingo Hotel and later renamed The Fabulous Flamingo, this landmark locale was originally touted as “the most fabulous, most magnificent, most luxurious resort in the world.”

“Nowhere in the world will you find such a complete facility dedicated to pleasure ’round the clock,” gushed an ad at the time. “Fun fills the air — name your brand, it’s here, in all its glory, just for you!”

Flamingo Las Vegas turns 75 in December 2021, and it just seems to get better with age. It’s still the place “where you’ll be surrounded by the spirit of good living and the best things in life.”
