Dick Graves opened the Nugget on March 17, 1955 as a 60-seat coffee shop with a handful of slot machines. John Ascuaga had worked for Graves in Idaho and moved to northern Nevada to help Graves open and manage the Nugget. Ascuaga purchased the Nugget in 1960 when Graves retired.
Today, John Ascuaga’s Nugget‘s twin hotel towers illuminate the Reno-Sparks skyline and boast 1,500 rooms, eight award-winning restaurants, 110,000 square feet of meeting space, an 84,000 square foot casino floor, world class entertainment and much more.
You're invited to check out all of the fall and winter craft brews being offered by dozens of brewers while dressing up for Halloween!
Our musical entertainment comes by way of Snake Oil Sinners who will time warp you into a live ultimate rock show! They'll play all of your favorite hair rock, melodic rock, metal and classic rock songs in full costume!
