Whiskey Pete's Hotel & Casino

Venue Info

This casino opened in the late '70s, but the legend of Whiskey Pete goes back to the early part of the 20th century. Whiskey Pete was allegedly a gas station owner who got into the bootlegging business, and whose grave was "accidentally" discovered while a bridge was being built on the property. Where he's buried now is anyone's guess, but his namesake casino is near the California state line, which means this spot is your last chance for Nevada gas prices before heading into California. You can check out the bullet-riddled car in which Bonnie & Clyde were killed in the lobby (morbid but worth a look), and it's worth booking a room here if you're seeing a show at the nearby Star of the Desert arena.
