"Bugsy" Siegel opened The Flamingo Hotel & Casino at a total cost of $6 million on December 26, 1946. Billed as "The West's Greatest Resort Hotel," it was the first luxury hotel on the Las Vegas Strip. Siegel named the resort after his girlfriend Virginia Hill, whose nickname was "Flamingo," a nickname Siegel gave her due to her long, skinny legs.
The splashy opening — Stars present included Jimmy Durante as entertainment, with guests including Clark Gable, Lana Turner, Cesar Romero, Judy Garland, and Joan Crawford.
The Mob was certain that Bugsy was skimming money from the casino, and on 20 June 1947, relaxing in the Beverly Hills house he shared with Hill, Siegel was shot to death. A memorial plaque exists on the Flamingo site near the outdoor wedding chapel
