This kitschy lounge, which features the replica of a floating boat that once carried Egyptian royalty down the Nile, has been transformed in recent years into The Gossy Room, home of throwback musician Matt Goss. When the fedora-wearing crooner isn't performing—which is to say, weeknights—the space is thumping with beats from one of the resident deejays. "The Barge," as it's known, isn't exactly cool or hip, but that's part of its appeal. Besides, where else can you
dance around on a makeshift boat inside a casino with a man-made lake, all in the middle of the desert?
