The Cal Veva Lodge, the infamous casino where the Rat Pack would smoke, drink and gamble, is closing its doors!
Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr spent a lot of time their in the 60s and it was also where Marilyn Monroe spent her last weekend before her passing in August of 1962.
Since the casino is in Reno, there was too much competition from Las Vegas and along with the recession, was forced to close.
"This was one of the hottest casinos in Nevada when Frank owned it," said tour guide Carl Buehler. "Frank had all the stars coming in and out of here, and it was always packed with people. I think the history is what keeps the Cal Neva going."
It has a renovated celebrity showroom and a helicopter pad on the roof along with tunnels used to shuffle mobsters and celebrities beneath the resort.
And although the casino will close, the restaurants and showroom named for Sinatra, will remain open.
