Demolition Crews Make Quick Work of Las Vegas Club

The Las Vegas Club, in downtown Las Vegas, opened in 1930. It closed on Aug. 19, 2015, and is well on its way to being a memory.

Oddly, there’s very little difference between the Las Vegas Club now and its last few years of operation.

The Las Vegas Club is being leveled to make way for a new Las Vegas resort. The resort project is informally referred to as “18 Fremont,” the address of the shuttered Las Vegas Club.

Serves them right for giving us $20 on that Wheel of Fortune spin. That’s what was the Glitter Gulch strip club, at left.

Our obsessive coverage of the demolition continues with this sweet video of the 18 Fremont site.

The Las Vegas Club was around forever, and was purchased by Derek and Greg Stevens, owners of The D Las Vegas and Golden Gate.

Here’s a look inside the Las Vegas Club right before its demise, just in time to save Fremont Street the fate of having another (wait for it) pharmacy.

No, really. The previous owners were making a deal to turn half the Las Vegas Club’s casino into a CVS. Because the WTF is strong downtown.

The largest excavator in America will soon start tearing down this hotel tower, then its neighbor. This could be better than an implosion.

Demolition mavens North American Dismantling Corp. have been making swift progress in recent weeks, taking down an office building, Mermaids and the Glitter Gulch strip club.

Here’s a look at Mermaids today.

In the time it’s taken to write those first paragraphs, demolition has begun on the Las Vegas Club’s parking garage.

    Glitter Gulch has never looked better.

    I do have a soft spot in my heart for the dive that was the Las Vegas Club though.

    I usually refuse to look at demolition porn because it’s so very destructive. However, if it’s true that the big momma is going to make an appearance, all bets are off!

    Crazy footage. Thanks for posting. LVC was my spot for many years downtown. The free parking helped me always start my downtown adventures there. Plus the cheap rooms. Of course over the years it got worse and worse. It was sad. But I’m looking forward to what Mr Stevens has in mind. I just hope it isnt a pit for years.

    I always kind of liked the layout of the Vegas Club. But as I’ve said many times before, I’m looking forward to the new stuff. But I’m going to remember the way too many to mention great times I’ve had there. What a place. But on to Fremont 18!
