Mountain Top, The End of an Era

Dear Source:
Mtn. Top in the 1960s was "island elegant." They had a fabulous Sunday dinner buffet that matched the incomparable view. In the late sixties, Mtn Top was home to Montessori School's Las Vegas Nite. Hotel rooms gave way to gift shops, perfume kiosks sprouted in the formerly grand entrance area and an art gallery sold original paintings by Larry Gluck. The banana daiquiris were made with real bananas! End of an era.
