The Flamingo in Las Vegas served as architect Irwin Schuman’s inspiration for the resort, which was built in 1958 with a communal wheel-spoke shape. Especially popular in the 1960s, it welcomed such notables as Frank Sinatra and the rest of the Rat Pack, and hosted performances by Elvis Presley, Desi Arnaz, Count Basie, Raquel Welch, and Bob Hope. In 1988, Sonny Bono opened his namesake Italian restaurant and hosted a tennis tournament here.
