Hooters Hotel Casino is at 115 E. Tropicana Ave. (1 blk. e. of Las Vegas Blvd., across from the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino). If only the local Hooters had slots and a sports book—you'd never leave. That's what the bar/restaurant chain's bigwigs were probably thinking when orange dolphin shorts and tight white tank tops took over the ghastly old Hotel San Remo in 2006. Knotty wood paneling strung with big-bulb Christmas lights gives the place that trademark Hooters feel.
The theme continues with orange-felt gaming tables and Hooters girl dealers slinging cards and counting chips. Near the back door is a proper Hooters restaurant serving chicken wings and watery beer to waitress gawkers and a surprising number of families.
