Meet The Original. This is the El Cortez Hotel & Casino. We’re the place you tell your friends about. The place your best stories begin.
We’re the longest continuously-running hotel and casino in town, and we know what it is to be ‘Vegas’. It’s who we are, and we won’t apologize for it.
The El Cortez Hotel and Casino anchors the Fremont East Entertainment District, a revitalized area of Downtown popular with locals and tourists alike. We offer world-class dining, entertainment, and gaming, all while honoring the glitz and glamour of classic Las Vegas. We’re a Vegas legend, and a Downtown icon.
Look around, and see what it means to be The Original.
For casual dining, Café Cortez is your place. Enjoy a huge menu of your favorite foods for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and everything in between. Sundays through Thursdays from 10:30pm – 7:00am, the Café Cortez offers a limited menu featuring breakfast items, salads, deli platters, pastries, cakes, and pies.
You need a bar where the bartender knows your name, your drink, and how to make it. At the Parlour Bar, you’ll find a great liquor selection, knowledgeable, friendly staff, and the comforting ambience of a bar where you’re always welcome. Come by and try one of our twelve specialty martinis.
