The Fiesta Room is the El Cortez’s most versatile venue.

It offers 3,200 square feet of space that can accommodate up to 100 for plated or buffet meals and up to 150 for receptions. It’s perfect for anything from a seated, elegant dinner to a rock show to a sports celebration. After all, anything can be a Fiesta.

Ike’s Bar

Located in the Pit, Ike’s is our newest lounge. Named for Ike Epstein, a bookmaker from Chicago who moved to Las Vegas in 1959 to help open the Stardust, and the father of current owner Kenny Epstein, Ike’s offers lounge seating and a sports-viewing area replete with 13 televisions. Belly up to the bar to order any drink you like, or food from Siegel’s Gameside.
