The massive liquidation sale at the closed Sahara Hotel includes objects ranging from high-end items such as Vegas Memorabilia, gaming tables and chandeliers, to low-end items such as silverware, dishes available for as low as $1.
The property located in the same neighborhood as older hotels like Circus Circus Las Vegas and the Riviera Hotel & Casino, shut its doors last month after the new owner, SBE Entertainment, decided it was no longer viable to keep the property open. SBE has not announced any plans for the property.
The historic resort, which opened in 1952, rapidly gained popularity for attracting big celebrities such as Don Rickles and Louis Prima. Its closure leaves the Tropicana, Flamingo Las Vegas and the Riviera as the only vintage “Rat Pack” casino-hotels that continue operating in Las Vegas.
The firm in charge of the liquidation is charging a $10 admission. The sale continues daily 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. The casino is expected to stay open every day until everything is sold.
