The Mirage Las Vegas Hotel and Casino



The Mirage is a 3,044 room hotel and casino resort located on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada.



The Mirage was built by developer Steve Wynn and designed by Joel Bergman. It opened in November 1989 and was the first resort that was built with the money of Wall Street through the use of junk bonds.



It was built on the site, formerly occupied by the Castaways and previous to that, the Red Rooster Nite Club



The Mirage was the most expensive hotel-casino in history, with a construction cost of US $630 million. The hotel's distinctive gold windows get their color from actual gold dust used in the tinting process.



From 1990 through 2003, The Mirage was the venue for the Siegfried & Roy show. The two headliners combined magic and the use of wild animals. The show closed in 2003 after performer Roy Horn was attacked and injured by one of the white tigers used in the show.



Now the main show at the Mirage is the Terry Fator, the winner of America's Got Talent in 2007.



The Mirage Hotel and Casino has some history in film:


The poker room at The Mirage was the dream destination of Matt Damon's character in the movie Rounders.



The movie Vegas Vacation was filmed mainly at The Mirage.



The Mirage is parodied in at least three video games: Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas as 'The Visage', Need For Speed: Carbon as 'The Mirror', and Hitman: Blood Money as 'The Shamal'.



The Mirage was one of the three casinos that Danny Ocean and his crew robbed in the 2001 version of the film Ocean's Eleven.



A scene from Steve Martin's Sgt. Bilko was shot at The Mirage.



The movie Pure Country featuring George Strait features scenes from The Mirage.



The Television show Criss Angel: Mindfreak sometimes takes place here.



Cher's 1991 CBS special Cher Extravaganza: Live at the Mirage was taped during stops of the singer 1990 Heart of Stone Tour.



The 2009 film 2012 featured the Mirage several times; one in a destroyed Vegas from a magnitude 10.9 earthquake in California.



"Bare", a poolside lounge in which guests can go topless. While men are welcome, this attraction is mainly promoted for women since they are allowed in the lounge for $10–$20 as opposed to the charge for men of $20–$40. This is a rare experience for women since in most public places women must have some sort of covering over their breasts. One must be 21 years or older to enter.
