Features

Strike Zone Bowling Center
Sunset Station's Strike Zone Bowling Center opened in April 2005. At the time of its opening, the 77,000-square-foot (7,200 m 2), 72-lane bowling alley was the largest in Las Vegas and, at a cost of $26 million, was also the most expensive in the country. In 2007, the alley hosted the PBA Tour's Motel 6 Classic.

Gaudi Bar
The central feature of the 140-seat Gaudi Bar is a 6,000-square-foot (560 m 2) stained glass ceiling composed of thousands of glass pieces and weighing twelve tons. The design of the Gaudi Bar is said to have been inspired by Spanish architect Antonio Gaudi.

History
Sunset Station opened on June 10, 1997. While Station Casinos had successful openings with Boulder Station and Texas Station in the mid-1990s, Sunset Station was considered a demonstration of the company's ability to develop and market a locals casino that was upscale. Following the success of Sunset Station, Station Casinos continued to open locals casinos that were more upscale, such as Green Valley Ranch (2001) and Red Rock Resort (2006).

Expansions
In 1999, Sunset Station underwent a $34 million dollar expansion project that included a new parking structure, increased casino floor and meeting space, and the Sonoma Cellar Restaurant. In 2005, a multi-million dollar expansion added The Strike Zone Bowling Center as well as additional gaming space.
