The imagination won't have to wander much longer as Binion's will soon re-open their gift shop under them thar stairs with an entrance right from the street. Binion's has previously housed two gift shops, one on the "Mint" side and another on the "Horseshoe" side where the new one is going. Could this finally mark the start of several long rumored renovations for this downtown legend?
The casino's Facebook page adds some interesting trivia about the flooring in these halls. One floor was covered with leftover carpeting from the Landmark Hotel, another with Stardust's extras. The three floors here were connected by the city's first electronic elevator. And, the gorgeous stained glass was installed 'cause the views weren't the best. That's a solution for the dreaded anti-view we can get behind.
Binion's gift shop will open initially at 5 p.m. daily and include Whiskey Licker branded souvenirs. We're picturing a big seller in "Liquor in the Front, Poker in the Rear" T-shirts.
