It’s easy to overlook the regency homes in the Las Vegas Strip, but the historic apartments at regency Las Vegas are worth exploring if you want to see what life was like in the city during the Golden Age of American entertainment.
In the early 1920s, MGM was building a new hotel in the area.
At one point, MGM wanted to have a bar, restaurant, and a cinema, but a city councilman convinced MGM that the most entertaining place in town would be in a regency home.
MGM built a Regency apartment in the building in 1923.

The building, which was originally designed by George C. Wolfe, was originally named Regency Castle, but Clark renamed it Regency Towers, after the two towers that were built to house MGM and MGM Resorts in New York City at the time.
When MGM moved into the building, the surrounding hills were cleared and the building was razed.
Today, the building is home to the Regencies Las Vegas Casino.
There are a number of other regency houses in Las Vegas, but Regency Las Venanos has the most famous.
There’s also a nearby hotel, Regency Luxury Las Vegas.
In 1923, MGM Resolutions bought out the Regents Las Vegas Castle, and in 1924, MGM purchased the Regent Las Vegas Tower for $2.7 million.
The Regents Regency Tower now stands in the heart of the Regence Hotel, which is where the Las Cruces Museum is located.

The Las Venanes is a fantastic place to visit.
As with the Regens, there’s a rooftop bar, but unlike the Regans, the Las Avenes is open to the public.
In fact, it’s so open to guests that the Regences Las Vegas Hotel’s website has a list of activities available for reservation.

It features some of Las Crucians most famous productions.
