Today that location still has the Golden Goose sign but it's
a popular gentlemen's club under the Fremont Street Experience canopy.

In an article from August 11, 1977 Herbert Pastor was approved as the
unconditional licensee of both the Golden Goose and the Coin Castle Casinos.

Herb Pastor later went on to convert the Coin Castle Casino to the Louisiana themed La Bayou. In 1983 he opened Sassy Sally's and then in 2000 converted it to Mermaids Casino.
He converted the Golden Goose Casino to
the current gentlemen's club "The Girls of Glitter Gulch."
Herb Pastor opened his first casino, The Golden Goose, in April 1974, just weeks after being licensed by Nevada Gaming Commission. His newly named Golden Goose Casino transformed the boarded up Mecca Slots into a very successful operation.
The half block of Fremont Street from 20 to 32 Fremont has been home to quite a few important and recognizable businesses in the past. The little alley between the Las Vegas Club and the Golden Goose sign is part of the original layout of Las Vegas as surveyed in 1905.  I took the picture below in October 2013 and the list shows some of the businesses that took up residence in this tiny patch over the years.

One of the great giveaways at the Golden Goose was a key fob with your initials stamped on it!
