North Las Vegas is the latest hot spot in Southern Nevada. One of the hottest spots in that area is the Cannery Casino and Hotel. Near Nellis Air Force Base and the popular Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the Cannery bills itself as a “resort destination.” It’s hard to argue with that – especially for those who’ve come for the races.
This hotel has 200 rooms, an elegant palm-bordered pool and Jacuzzi and 24-hour room service. The casino level offers six restaurants and two bars with nightly live entertainment.
As you might guess from the names of the bars – Pin-Ups Lounge and Victory’s Bar & Grill – the Cannery goes for a WWII-vintage canning factory atmosphere, from the extensive use of brick to the illustrations of ’40s models on the blackjack tables.
The 75,000-square-foot gaming area offers over 1,650 slot and video poker machines and 20 table games. There are weekly blackjack tournaments and free gaming lessons on weekend mornings. The property recently open a brand new race and sports book, a poker room offering 2 tables including low- and medium-limit Texas Hold’em, Omaha and 7-Card Stud and a 288 seat bingo room.
The signature restaurant is Waverly’s Steak House, showcasing dark wood tones and still-life paintings that give it the look of a ’40s-style plant manager’s office. There’s also the Cannery Row Buffet featuring BBQ lunch and dinner, Casa Cocina for Mexican and margaritas and the All-American, 24-hour Victory’s Cafe. Try Vino’s Italian Restorante and Deli for a taste of Italy in your own backyard.
The Cannery also features Galaxy Luxury Movie Theaters with 16 screens, a large indoor/outdoor entertainment and exhibit venue that accommodates up to 3,000 people for concerts, festivals, motor sports exhibits and boxing matches.
