Sparks property sold



Marnell Gaming, the latest owner of the Sparks Nugget, has purchased the former Silver Club property across the street.

The Silver Club was originally a casino and a hotel in a separate building on C Street. It closed at midnight on Jan. 10, 2009, after operating under that name for more than a quarter century. It reopened briefly as the Bourbon Square, with the hotel still a part of the property but not operating.

After Bourbon Square closed, the hotel property was sold in 2015 and converted to apartments.

Marnell, which owns several casinos in Clark County, has not announced its plans for the new holding. Also standing empty at the moment is the downtown movie theater multiplex. Both properties have been gutted.
