Sans Souci

The land that the Castaways was built on was first used in 1931 for the Red Rooster Nite Club. That structure was destroyed by a fire in 1933 and it was rebuilt. In 1942, the San Souci Auto Court was built next to the Red Rooster. Later in October 1957 opened the Sans Souci Hotel. In 1963, the property became the site of the Castaways Hotel & Casino. In February 1970, the Castaways was sold to billionaire Howard Hughes for $3 million as part of his spree of buying Las Vegas properties. The resort operated until July 1987, when it and the surrounding property were purchased by Steve Wynn. Wynn then proceeded with his plans to develop a new resort on the Castaways' former grounds. The resort eventually became the Mirage and opened on November 22, 1989  Casino Pictures
