    Hi to Everyone,
    Perhaps an unusual question;
    Does anyone know if there was a rooftop restaurant or bar or something relevant in Las Vegas Hilton in 1976?
    I will appreciate any answer
    Thanks

    No help to your question, but maybe you're thinking of the old Landmark? They had a restaurant & lounge on top and were close to the old Hilton.

    pantera, I've read a bit about the hilton in the 70s, and I've never heard of any public restaurant/bar up there in those years. up until 1976, elvis lived at a penthouse on the top floor -- some sources say it was the entire top floor (which I find hard to believe) and other sources say it was 5,000 square feet. the hotel in the 70s was smaller than it was today – the east tower was added in 1975, north tower in 78. today on the top floor there is the verona sky villa, 15,000 sq feet
