Royal Flusher's Daily Vegas Pic - Feb 1, 2018 - Golden Gate

The Golden Gate has been through good times and bad.

It is definitely flourishing under Derek Stevens' ownership, but as usual, I get nostalgic for times gone by.

I think I loved the Golden Gate most when it was just on the edge of seedy, and fairly run down.

At the back was a Deli, and the home of the famous 99-cent shrimp cocktail.

There was some seating back there, and a piano player sometimes too.

The Bay City Diner was everything you want in a diner. Counter seating, booths, rubbies, the works.

That morphed into Du-Par's which is now closed. So - no more Deli, no more Shrimp bar, no more piano player, no more coffee shop - but we do have dancing dealers!

  1. Dupar's was awesome. Our favorite breakfast in Vegas.

    So how does a restaurant that has people in line all morning and into the afternoon every day have to shut down? I'm still waiting for an answer.
