About the Casino
In Las Vegas, a "local's" casino is defined as anything not right on The Strip or Downtown that caters mostly to the residents of the city through low-cost restaurants and entertainment, low room rates (for friends or families visiting from out of town), low limits on gaming, and other budget minded offerings.
The Cannery, on the north side of town, follows this blueprint almost to a T. This sister property on the east side of town both follows that blueprint and throws it away at the same time.
The Eastside Cannery is located on Boulder Highway, one big block south of another local's favorite Sam's Town and near Arizona Charlie's and Boulder Station. For those of you unfamiliar with the neighborhood what you're going to want to do is take Flamingo (that's the street between Caesars and Bellagio) east about 6 miles and hang a right. In other words it's nowhere near the places most tourists want to go but that doesn't mean you shouldn't know about it, especially if you're one of those people who is always complaining about how expensive Vegas has gotten.
It’s hard to miss the building. At 16 stories it’s one of the tallest structures in that area of town and just to make sure you don’t miss it they have added colored lights that cast patterns across the façade of the tower. If you fly into town you’ll be able to see it since it’s right off the main approach to McCarran International.
The original Cannery has a ’40s theme (think Rosie the Riveter) but this one updates things by a couple of decades with a subtle ’60s theme. This is mostly exhibited with a series of large paintings of iconic free-love era imagery such as a Volkswagen van and various go-go style beauties.
