Fodor's Expert Review Gold Spike
Once a (seedy) casino, the Gold Spike has been resuscitated as part of Tony Hsieh's $350 million Downtown Project. In this case, that means gambling is out and free gaming is in. Gaming, as in shuffleboard, giant versions of Connect Four, and, on the back patio, life-size Jenga. Sure, at times (especially on Thursday night) it feels like the former casino floor is now a clubhouse for employees of Zappos.com. But the hot spot is open to the public and is becoming a popular place for locals, visitors, and hipsters to hang, too.
