Sahara Las Vegas is a sleek, seductive retreat, a mixed-use resort and casino combined with a collection of great restaurants and bars. Musician and creative visionary Lenny Kravitz was involved in its design as the aesthetic reflects Kravitz’s eclectic global lifestyle.
Until its closure in 2011, the Sahara Hotel was located at this very place, a location with legendary music history connected to it. Ironically, one of the biggest moments at the Sahara involved the four lads from Liverpool, UK. Legend has it that The Beatles were paid quite a huge amount of money to perform two shows in Las Vegas on 20 August, 1964. It is said that because of the local teenage hysteria, John, Paul, George, and Ringo stayed in their suite, No. 4722, nearly the entire time. Two thousand teenagers had surrounded the hotel, queuing up outside and in the lobby. The Beatles would perform the two shows for more than 11,000 screaming fans packed in the Las Vegas Convention Center, the only venue at that time that was large enough to accommodate the audience. Have a look at the setlist of the evening here.
