Aladdin Hotel and Casino Room Service Menu, Las Vegas, 1960s
A voluptuous genie in a transparent costume delivers room service in this 1960s menu cover from the famously gaudy Aladdin Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, the venue of Elvis and Priscilla Presley's marriage. First owned by entrepreneur Milton Prell who invented the Yahtzee game, the hotel adopted an Arabian Nights theme in the mid 60s. Cocktails were served in the Sinbad lounge, there was entertainment in the 500-seater Baghdad Theater and a neon Aladdin's Lamp, measuring 15 stories high, stood at the entrance. The Presley marriage took place in 1967. The Aladdin went through a series of owners and bankruptcies and closed in 1997. The building was imploded and a new Aladdin opened in 2000. It didn't last long – professional gamblers took advantage of the casino's inexperienced staff and fleeced the resort of piles of cash. The hotel was again declared bankrupt in 2003 and has since been taken over by Planet Hollywood.
