The Sahara Hotel & Casino was once known as the “Jewel of the Desert”, and we’ve wasted no time bringing that glitz and glam back to the North end of the strip with SLS Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. Before LiFE Nightclub, Foxtail Pool Club, and Bazaar Meat was The Congo Room, Garden of Allah, and Don the Beachcomber. And when the Marquee, which now glows from over 7,000 LED modules, used to don names like Johnny Carson, Don Rickles, and Liberace. We’re taking a look back to this iconic site where these legends and the likes of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr. crooned and cocktailed, and when it was the only hotel on the strip The Beatles would stay.

Recreate Las Vegas’ glory days with our Sahara Room Package! Vacation in legendary-style with $250 in dining credit at Bazaar Meat and $200 beverage credit at The Sayers Club.
