Proposed Glitter Gulch Bar Could Mean the End of Iconic Golden Goose Sign
There are still a good number of hoops to be jumped through, but a proposed outdoor bar at downtown’s Glitter Gulch strip club could result in the demise of a vintage Las Vegas sign, that of the former Golden Goose casino.
Here’s a look at the proposed bar.
The proposed bar would preserve the famous Vegas Vicki sign, but would appear to replace the old-school Golden Goose sign with a video display.
Here’s the current space involved with the Glitter Gulch proposal.
Since we work at Fremont Street Experience as our day job, we won’t weigh in on whether this bar should be allowed (it shouldn’t), but we will weigh in on pulling down one of the most fabulous signs on Fremont Street. Specifically, it would suck harder than a black hole that’s been held underwater for eight minutes. Or something.
The site of the Golden Goose sign has a long and storied history, most of which we’re likely to get wrong because we’ve been drinking.
Originally, the State Cafe stood at the Golden Goose location. After that, it was Buckley’s casino, then it became the Mecca Casino. Golden Goose opened in 1974, the same year “The Six Million Dollar Man” premiered. What that has to do with anything, we have no idea. It’s obvious you skimmed over the part about us drinking.
We’re a little protective of our home away from home (downtown Las Vegas), so we’ll be watching the progress of the proposed Glitter Gulch bar with great interest. We may also have to watch the progress from inside Glitter Gulch. The sacrifices we make for you.
