Sahara To Close Its Doors
March 15, 2022
The legendary Sahara Hotel and Casino, which originally opened in 1952, is scheduled to be closing its doors this May 16th, apparently due to continued financial hardship, and possibly may never reopen again.

The Sahara, originally a glitzy home to such A-List celebrities as Buddy Hackett, George Burns and The Beatles, lately has been much more a friend to the budget minded player, with consistently some of the cheapest room rates on The Strip; a large poker room with a highly player friendly nightly $45 (plus one $20 rebuy) tournament; and a Nascar themed cafe with an infamous 6-pound burrito that’s free if you can finish it.

Along with being a stop on Vegas’ often troubled monorail line, the Sahara was also one of the last functioning casinos in a small pocket of the North Strip that use to contain both the Stardust and the New Frontier, which now gone, have both yet to be successfully replaced.

Those iconic casinos are forever lost to Vegas lore but the Sahara, though certainly closing this May, is not for certain out for the count, and could potentially even reopen once owners decide the best course of action for this historic yet unquestionably aged property.
