The history of Hotel Apache, Las Vegas
Originally opened in 1932 by the Silvagni family, Hotel Apache is the second oldest hotel in downtown Vegas (after The Golden Gate). Binion’s Apache Hotel played a vital role in shaping the landscape of the city with several firsts in Las Vegas, including:
- The first air-conditioned hotel lobby
- The first electric elevator
- The first carpeted casino
- The first casino to make poker a mainstream table game
Soon, these features became staples in all casinos and hotels on the Las Vegas Strip and downtown. As Las Vegas continued to grow, the Apache Hotel and Casino became the go-to destination for Hollywood movie stars visiting from California, including Lucille Ball, Clark Gable and Humphrey Bogart.
