Holy Cow Casino Will Be Walgreens

The site of the defunct and razed Holy Cow Casino is being constructed into a Walgreens. This is at the northeast corner of Las Vegas Blvd and Sahara.

SLS Hotel & Casino is now open on the southeast corner. As well, Bonanza gift shop (which is not open 24 hours) remains open on the northwest corner. The southwest corner continues to remain unimproved.

SLS Las Vegas - Where Are The People?

SLS Las Vegas is open for business. On a recent morning the outdoor bar as well as traffic circle seemed rather empty.

Homeless Meter - Las Vegas Blvd @ Sahara

Not a parking meter, but a meter to donate to the homeless or services which assist them. This is on the northwest corner of Las Vegas Blvd and Sahara, the corner of the Bonanza Gift Shop.

Diagonally across, SLS hotel & casino, now open, can be seen.

Holy Cow Casino Was Here - Las Vegas Construction August 2014

Holy Cow Casino used to exist at the northeast corner of Sahara and Las Vegas Boulevard.  Following that Ivana Trump had a sales office on that site for a high rise which was never built.  (Just as well, it would have been like building a skyscraper on the footprint of a 7-11.)

Something is being built there right now, however, as can be seen in the photos of the construction framework.  The photos from top to bottom rotate south to show the geographical relationship to SLS Las Vegas which is due to open later this month.

Here is a link to an old post of mine in which I covered the demolition of the building which was Holy Cow Casino.  http://royvegas.blogspot.com/2012/05/holy-cow-casino-demolition-las-vegas.html
