25 Ways to Celebrate 25 Years of Silverton Casino

From bottomless drinks to eating with mermaids, enjoy all the property's festivities for the rest of July

In such a transient town as Las Vegas, standing the test of time is an incredible feat. Silverton Casino is celebrating 25 years of gaming and great eats — not to mention some particular aquatic pastimes that are a surefire kid-pleaser. In no particular order, here are 25 things to do at Silverton for its quarter-century celebration this July.

1. Order some “under the radar” items at Su Casa

Su Casa is the home of sushi fusion at Silverton. Seafood fans will enjoy classics like spicy tuna rolls and avant-garde options like tsunami fries and lychee panna cotta. Try the uni lobster fried rice for a heightened culinary experience.

2. Enjoy the Signature Silverton Sweet Treat

Sundance Grill serves up its fair share of delights, and their “Strawberry Tall Cake” takes the cake — or center stage. Get it for just $2 during their anniversary promotion.

Fun fact: Silverton has served nearly 100,000 Strawberry Tall Cakes, and they’re still on the menu today.

3. Sip on an Anniversary Cocktail

Nothing is more refreshing than a fruity drink on a hot day — especially one enjoyed in an air-conditioned casino. This watermelon delight is handcrafted with Tito’s vodka, a longtime favorite of the hotel.

4. Get $25 Bottomless Drinks

Calling all happy hour hounds. All casino bars are serving up bottomless drinks for the low price of $25 from 4 to 7 p.m. every Thursday through Saturday in July.

5. Swim with the Mermaids

Your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you. Mermaids join the fish in the casino aquarium to delight guests of all ages. Watch them swim, help the divers feed the fish and perform underwater acrobatics in shimmering mermaid tales.

Fun facts: The mermaids have made more than 500,000 individual appearances, and one of the mermaids was a gold medalist on the 1996 USA Olympic Swim Team.

6. Cool Off in the Sway Pool

This is the typical luxurious resort pool, complete with cabanas and bar service. Keep cool this summer by lounging in the Sway Pool. Enjoy it for the rest of the July, as new renovations begin August 1st for a brand-new Silverton experience.

7. Play some Buffalo Xing

The Buffalo gaming brand has seen 15 years of evolution in the realm of video gaming. Silverton is home to the world’s first-ever Buffalo Xing, the multi-game system housing all of the classics. Try your luck at these historic machines, and visit all Buffalo slot machines “corralled” together in one space.

10. Roll the Dice at Twin Creeks

Twin Creeks is the home steakhouse at Silverton. From its plant-based menu to the accoutrement-happy mains, all diners will feel welcome at this legendary steakhouse. In July, guests can quite literally “roll the dice” tableside for a chance to win a free entree.

11. Hit The Berkley

Enjoy a homey high-rise stay just steps away from the main hotel. The Berkley is the site of an 18-story accommodations that offer some of the homier comforts in a hotel room stay. Full kitchenettes, vanity areas and private washer/dryers will make any guest feel like they’ve stepped into a well-stocked home.

12. Enjoy the Silverton Casino

This is the neighborhood casino your vacation needs. Everything from the lamps to the carpet lends to the underwater inspiration. Pull up a chair for slots, table games and drinks across the wide expanse of gaming real estate.

13. Visit the Aquarium

Voted “The Best Free Attraction in Las Vegas,” this aquarium is the perfect family-friendly activity. Several tanks are spread out throughout the casino and the Bass Pro Shop. Spot the mermaids and divers feeding the thousands of fish at select times.

Fun fact: More than 400,000 pounds of fish have been fed to the stingrays in the tanks.

14. Be Hypnotized by Flare Bar

Located in the middle of the casino floor, Flare Bar has thousands of mirrors reflected from the ceiling to create a cool, modern vibe. Guests love the iridescent bar setup while indulging in the ever-present inset keno machines.

15. Throw Parties at Shady Grove Lounge

Open 24/7, this Shady Grove Lounge is an indoor lodge getaway. Just like On The Record at Park MGM, a vintage airstream trailer sits parked inside the restaurant’s premises. This one even has a mini bowling setup.

16. Check Out Hotel Drover

For out-of-town readers feeling the wanderlust, don’t worry. Silverton’s sister hotel, Hotel Drover, is located in Fort Worth, Texas. This boutique hotel captures the spirit of the West with its prime location and rustic details.

17. Get Married at Veil Pavilion

Step away from the desert landscape and into this forest-inspired venue for your special day. The aptly-named Veil Pavilion can house hundreds of guests in the 11,000 square feet space for nights of matrimony.

18. Grab a Moneyball at the Claw Machine

This is the ultimate claw machine for adults. Go Go Claw is present in many casinos on the Strip. Try your luck for a prize ball full of cash.

19. Eat with Mermaids

Once you’ve watched the kids fulfill their “Little Mermaid” bucket list wish, it’s time to eat. This lounge bar serves all of the American dining favorites to pair with the fun cocktails. Plus, the view of the fish tanks and casino floor adds a calming touch to the ambiance.

20. Enjoy the Mermaid Cove Art Gallery

The mermaids are a work of art in themselves, and this art gallery reinforces that sentiment. Featuring several pieces from Wil Cormier, guests can peruse the pieces any time of day or night. All works of art are available for purchase.

21. Spend a Holiday at Silverton

Vegas delivers the best in holiday experiences, and Silverton is no exception. Major holidays are recognized with events, food specials and giveaway prizes. Join the hotel staff and guests later this year for its pop-up Christmas bar.

22. Enjoy Poolside Live for the Rest of July

For a limited time, stop by the pool for some evening enjoyment. From 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. live music will deliver those true vacation vibes at Silverton. Guests are welcome to stop by for this free entertainment.

23. Participate in a Giveaway

The casino isn’t the only place to rake in the rewards at Silverton. Take advantage of frequent drawings and contests to win prizes. Whether it’s a smaller reward like ice cream, or a brand-new car, the prizes are plentiful and worth putting your name in for.

24. Head Over to Hyatt Place

Silverton Village has another hotel located a stone’s throw away from the main hotel. The Hyatt Place has every comfort of a name-brand stay, including a pool and meeting rooms to accompany the high-end suites. The suites and onsite dining round out the experience.

25. Return for Remodels

Silverton can’t wait for you to come back and visit—especially when they’ve finished their face lift. Starting August 1, the hotel will close its doors for a temporary hiatus, to make room for remodels and upgrades.
