[kl-bogel] Closure of the hotel and casino "Sahara" in Las Vegas

After working for 59 years, the hotel and casino "Sahara", made in the Moroccan style, are closed. Once it rested Elvis Presley and The Beatles, but in recent years, hotel and casino located on the decline. In its heyday, "Sahara" was a favorite place of Rat Pack (Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford), and even Sinatra performed there. The resort even flashed in the original version of the film "Ocean's Eleven", filmed in 1960.

In 2007, the impresario of a nightclub in Los Angeles, Sam Nazarian, took over management of "Sahara." But in March, his company, SBE Entertainment, announced that it considers hotel and casino "not economically viable." This is the end of a legend.
