Brazilian Room, Hotel Tropicana Las Vegas 1970s
When it opened in 1957, The Tropicana was the most lavish and expensive hotel and casino on the Las Vegas Strip.
It had 300 rooms, an impressive casino and its three restaurants including the Brazilian room were overseen by Alexander Perino, whose Perino’s restaurant in Los Angeles was much admired.
The Tropicana was featured in several movies in the 1960s, including Viva Las Vegas with Elvis Presley and Diamonds Are Forever with Sean Connery as British secret agent 007.
It is probably best known for hosting the long-running Folies Bergere, emulating the original in Paris and featuring performances by statuesque showgirls with extravagant costumes and immense headpieces, interspersed with comedy, magic, acrobatic and animal acts.
The show ran from 1959 to 2009.
