Treasure Island


Treasure Island (or TI) on a cold New Year's Eve as seen from the Palazzo.  TI is a four-diamond hotel and resort currently owned by Phil Ruffin (former owner of the New Frontier).  The casino is located in Paradise, NV. and features 2,665 rooms.


Treasure Island was originally to be a second-tower expansion for the Mirage--but later became its own resort.

Siren's Cove at 10:00 A.M.--not a soul in sight.


Owner Phil Ruffin had such a great success with Gilley's at the New Frontier (now imploded), that he decided to open another at TI.  Gilley's TI premiered in April, 2010.

One of the major features of the nightclub are the beautiful Gilley Girls--providing western hospitality and also acting as casino dealers in the Gilley Girls Party Pit.

The cowboy nightclub and bar have become a major feature on the front of TI, built into the cliff face along the Strip.  Gilley's can also be accessed from inside the casino.

Kahunaville nightclub:  a flair bar--near the rear of the hotel; the bartenders entertain customers by tossing bottles and other bar tools as they pour and mix drinks. 


Defunct:  Mist bar--the color orange was the theme.  The Mist no longer exists-after a seven-year run, the Mist closed Halloween night, 2009 to make room for Gilley's.


Modified:  Francesco's Pizzeria at TI was near the Valet (south) entrance.  The restaurant, which was upscale in presentation, has been moved and is now found between the TI Poker Room and the Mystere Store near the rear of the property; it has been downgraded to a fast food pizza joint .  Francesco's old location has been taken over by Gilley's.  


Francesco's as it appears today. 


Treasure Island is one of seven or eight hotels along the Strip that shoot fireworks simultaneously on New Year's Eve night.
