- This spot was recently added to the list of historical places in Nevada, as well it should. It was the first hotel (still in existence) to be built in Las Vegas, and it is still going strong. In the 1950s a "modern" facade was added, which remained until the inauguration of the Fremont Street Experience. Then the hotel was restored to its original charming appearance (circa 1930s), replete with flower boxes at the windows. A piano bar is situated next to the Shrimp Cocktail Deli, which still serves up 99-cent shrimp cocktails.
