It has changed owners many times and has grown to encompass many smaller casinos.

Early downtown Las Vegas recollections of Charles W. Aplin


Well, then, on the other side, down there was the old Las Vegas bar, and that was up next to the corner—the corner of First and Fremont, right there on the very corner, and they used to call it the Pioneer Club, though, next to that—that was quite a corner, right next to Beckley’s place at that time. And the next one was down on Second—on the corner,
there, where the Apache Hotel is. Then, across on the other corner was where—the building that belonged to Griffith—which belongs to the Golden Nugget, but at that Nugget, but  at that time, the post office went in there and then that was converted into a saloon and they done quite a bit of business in that place.
