Expert Reviews
Gayot
Opened in 1943, this legendary casino enjoys the loyalty of its longtime regulars in a smoky atmosphere reminiscent of downtown's early days.
Frommer's
Finally, a much-needed (as opposed to just done because everyone else is doing it) and well-conceived renovation has given an old-timer an unexpected new shot of life.
Time Out
The historic building's Spanish-style architecture is still intact, and so is another relic: Jackie Gaughan, who bought the property way back in 1963, still walks the floors daily.
