Castaways

Originally, the Sans Souci Hotel was situated on the land. In 1963, the property became the site of the Castaways. The hotel experienced financial trouble and was sold and renamed Oliver's New Castaways Casino.
The hotel had a 1500-gallon aquarium in its bar. Three times a day a show was put on by naked women in the aquarium.

In 1970, the Castaways was sold to billionaire Howard Hughes for $3 million. The resort was then purchased by Steve Wynn in 1987.
Wynn then proceeded to develop a new resort on the Castaways' former grounds using the working name Golden Nugget on the Strip. The resort became Mirage and opened on November 22, 1989. A few years later, the Treasure Island was built on more of the land that had been used as the Mirage's parking lot and additional adjacent undeveloped land.
