Finally! A gallery dedicated to preserving Sin City's sizzling past. The Las Vegas Club Gallery originally opened as a space to showcase and sell sports memorabilia from one of the city's first casinos with a neon sign: the Las Vegas Club (no brainer). Apparently Vegas sports memorabilia from the 1930s was a big friggin' deal because it's pretty much all gone.
The Plaza decided we still needed a space to honor Vegas history, so they decided rotating exhibits would be the best way to give Vegas lovers what they want: ahem - more Vegas. The gallery features local artists and their works, which you can take home with you (if you feel so inclined), and super cool historical exhibits.
The current exhibit features the prints and paintings of local artist Jerry Misko who's known for his "retro-meets-modern" renditions of vintage Vegas. On Feb. 4, 2016, the Las Vegas Club Gallery will open the "Union Plaza Then and Now" exhibit that displays 150-200 artifacts like rare shot glasses, chips, dice, photos and more.
Admission to the Las Vegas Club Gallery inside the Plaza Hotel in downtown Las Vegas is free.
