PHOTOGRAPHY COURTESY OF GOLDEN GATE HOTEL AND CASINO. OPPOSITE PAGE: PHOTOGRAPHY BY BARBARA KRAFT Fact: Golden Gate had the first 50-cent shrimp cocktail in Vegas. Its real bargains are the massive penthouses. GILDED AGE WITH A CASINO EXPANSION IN THE WORKS, GOLDEN GATE'S BEST DEALS ARE ABOUT TO BE A LITTLE LESS SECRET. You may have passed the Golden Gate Hotel & Casino along the Fremont Street Experience a thou- sand times, but you might not know that the hotel in fact predates the Experience by 90 years. In 2012, Derek and Greg Stevens bought a 50 percent stake in the now-111-year-old property—adding a five-story hotel tower with 14 new suites and two penthouses. Last year, they became the Golden Gate's full owners, and in February they began a major casino expansion. Expect those two "secret" 1,600 -square- foot penthouses to lose their insider quality. But until you can't book them anymore, enjoy their outdoor patios this summer—with wet bars, fireplaces, lounge seating, a grill, and a 50 -inch TV. Starting at $599, the penthouses cost less than the nightly price of a Strip suite. 1 Fremont St., 702-777-6951; SPACE SOURCE: The L AS VEGAS HOME DÉCOR, HOTELS, AND REAL ESTATE 104 VEGASMAGAZINE.COM
