The Las Vegas Club, a casino located at the corner of Main and Fremont streets in Downtown Las Vegas, closed just after midnight on Thursday, according to Vegas Inc.

The casino was bought by the two owners of The D Las Vegas and the Golden Gate Casino Hotel, casinos also located Downtown.

The Las Vegas Club opened in 1930 and had the first hotel in the city with a neon sign.

It’s unclear what the new owners of the shuttered Las Vegas Club will do with the space, the report said. The closing was the second this year in Las Vegas. The Riviera, located on the Strip, ended operations in May, ending its six-decade-long run.

The Las Vegas Club, which had 22,210 square feet of gaming floor space, opened a poker room in 2007, but eventually closed it. The casino closed its hotel tower a couple of years ago as well.

The property was sold less than a week before closing its doors. A price tag was not disclosed.
