Girls of Glitter Gulch Among 3 Downtown Vegas Sites Closing

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas is about to lose a trio of kitschy downtown properties, including the last remaining topless show on the Fremont Street casino pedestrian mall, and a signature spot for deep-fried Twinkies and Oreos.

Mermaids, Topless Girls of Glitter Gulch and La Bayou are due to close their doors Monday.

Developers and casino owners Derek and Greg Stevens acquired the properties in April from the Granite Gaming Group.

They’ve said they plan to build a new hotel-casino, which would be the first ground-up downtown development in decades.

The Stevens brothers also own the open-air Downtown Las Vegas Events Center concert venue, and the D Las Vegas and Golden Gate casinos.

They tell the Las Vegas Review-Journal they’re still in planning stages for the new property.
