my goodness - what wondeeful pix. your collection never ceases to amaze me.

i thought this building had already been demolished - i had no idea it was still there?


here's my pix from about 8-10 years ago.
i did not go in - cause it was a scary bar/club at the time and i was alone (and alot more timid than i am now).

Note the corrugated port cochere like overhang and the fabulous patterned concrete walls.

Yep! It's still there...for how long, I don't know. I asked a few people who were walking to the surrounding townhomes, but they knew nothing.

With all the recent interest in spas again, you'd think they might be able to make this one work again! There's a place in Nevada, near Genoa, called Walley's Hot Springs. It looked like a WRECK 20 years ago and now it's renovated and a "hot" spot! We'll be staying there in April :-)

Punch this into google maps:

9457 Las Vegas Blvd S
Las Vegas, NV 89123
USA

Looks like it's still standing...

Going to drop in when I'm in Vegas this Aug!

any update on this? I'm going to try to check it out tonight. I checked it out on google maps using the streetview, but all I could see was a bunch of construction sites...not a good sign!

sadly, it is razed to the ground, reduced to gravel...

Went by in August to check it out and left heartbroken
