In the 1970s, Las Vegas was thriving with 24 hours gambling, showgirls, casinos, restaurants, and hotels illuminated with neon lights. There were high and low budget burlesque shows like Burlesque and Branded. Live music was the norm in every casino, with fantastic groups entertaining for free. Food was excellent, from gourmet dining to the 99 cent breakfasts and $5 steak special downtown. The Las Vegas city hall was finally completed and opened for the public in 1973. Here below are some fantastic vintage photos that give a glimpse of 1970s Las Vegas.
