Learn about the Crystal Bay Club Casino history

The Crystal Bay Club Casino

The Crystal Bay Club Casino, initially built in 1937 as the Ta-Neva-Ho, has been a central figure in Crystal Bay’s history. Over the decades, this casino has undergone major changes, including big renovations to changes in ownership. The casino was a center for entertainment, from bowling in the early ’40s to hosting major concerts in later years. Then in 2002, the casino was brought out of bankruptcy, then remodeled, and reopened. The casino still continues to serve as a significant entertainment venue in Lake Tahoe.

Northern Lights Festival: A Modern Celebration of Art and Nature

In contrast to the historical glamour, the Northern Lights Festival illuminates Crystal Bay, and the surrounding Lake Tahoe region with a contemporary celebration of art, culture, and nature. This annual event changes Crystal Bay into a picture of light and creativity that draws visitors in from all over the world. The festival not only shows the natural beauty here at Lake Tahoe but also supports many of our local artists and encourages a sense of unity with an appreciation for the arts.

The Fun and Interesting History of Crystal Bay: The Rat Pack

Step back into the early 1960s, and you’ll find the Cal Neva Lodge & Casino, straddling the California-Nevada border, buzzing with the electric energy of the Rat Pack. This was no ordinary group of entertainers; led by the charismatic Frank Sinatra and featuring the likes of Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop, they were the epitome of cool. The crew was known for lighting up Las Vegas with their captivating performances and films, the group lived a life of glamour that became the envy of their times.

In 1960, Sinatra injected a new level of excitement into Cal Neva by becoming a part-owner. It wasn’t just a casino and resort in Crystal Bay; but under Sinatra’s influence, it changed into an exclusive playground for the rich and famous. Imagine the legendary parties, the kind where celebrities, politicians, and moguls mingled under the stars. The resort’s secretive tunnels, remnants of its storied past, whispered tales of Sinatra and his guest’s slipping unseen across the property, away from the prying eyes of fans and the press.

But not all that glitters is gold. Sinatra’s reign at Cal Neva took a dramatic turn in 1963 when his gambling license was revoked. What was the cause of the license revoke? Sinatra’s ties with Sam Giancana, a notorious mobster, didn’t sit well with the Nevada Gaming Control Board. This unfortunately marked the end of Sinatra’s direct involvement with the resort and the beginning of a new chapter in the Cal Neva history.

Yet, the Rat Pack’s time at Cal Neva remains a gilded memory, a time when celebrity culture and the casino lifestyle merged to define Lake Tahoe’s allure. The Cal Neva of today, with its layers of history and multiple makeovers, still echoes the glory of Sinatra’s days, inviting us to reminisce about a golden age of entertainment and luxury that once graced the shores of Crystal Bay.

The Incline Village General Improvement District

The Incline Village General Improvement District (IVGID) was created by Washoe County in 1961, initially tasked with constructing and maintaining sewer and water systems. IVGID expanded its responsibilities over the years, adding recreational facilities and acquiring beaches, golf courses, and Ski Incline (later renamed Diamond Peak).

The IVGID also played a key role in environmental wastewater treatment of efforts to protect Lake Tahoe’s water quality. Significant projects included the acquisition of land for treated waste disposal and the construction of facilities to meet federal and state environmental mandates.
