The Nugget is undoubtedly the classiest joint on the Fremont Street Experience. With the glittering high-rise Rush Tower, this casino hotel now has downtown‘s best rooms, lots of entertainment (from old-school crooners to lounge acts), top-drawer restaurants (Vic & Anthony’s steakhouse, Grotto for wood-fired pizzas, and Chart House for seafood), plus a street-view balcony for boozing upstairs in Gold Diggers nightclub.
Oh, did we mention the swimming pool with a water slide through a glassed-in shark tank? Reserve a red cabana to soak it all in, then retire to your swank Gold Club room, loaded with comps. If you win big in the poker room, swing by the casino ATM that dispenses actual gold bars. Nearby, the world’s largest gold nugget ever found with a metal detector, the 874ozt Hand of Faith, is on display behind glass.
