Vegas Vickie Neon Sign

Field review by the editors.

Las Vegas, Nevada

Vegas Vickie, Sin City's iconic kicking neon cowgirl sign, was named "Sassy Sally" when she first hung over the entrance to the Glitter Gulch casino in 1980. Then in 1994 she "married" a neighboring neon sign cowboy, Vegas Vic, and acquired her current name.

Time took its toll on Vegas Vickie, as it does to all Las Vegas showgirls. Her makeovers grew increasingly involved and expensive, and when Glitter Gulch closed in June 2017, Vickie was taken down and hauled away, her future uncertain.

The vintage neon sign was rescued by the owner of a new casino, the Circa, which opened only a few feet away from the old Glitter Gulch. Vickie was repaired by YESCO, the same sign company that had built her. In a frantic last-minute restoration push, the pulley that kicked her mechanical leg was repaired one minute before she was flipped back on, October 27, 2020. Vickie now hangs in an indoor atrium, next to "Vegas Vickie's Cocktail Lounge." She finally has her own place, and is safely shielded from the elements.
