For 13 years Siegfried and Roy were two of the most famous entertainers in the world. Night after night they delighted audiences with their Las Vegas show. And all that revenue helped them build a very impressive residence in Sin City. Now City Council has approved the demolition of Siegfried and Roy‘s Las Vegas home. Little Bavaria was what the duo called their estate. That moniker was a tribute to their homeland of Germany. Siegfried Fishbacher and Roy Horn were born in Germany and met on a cruise ship. They started performing magic together and were fired from their first job for bringing a live cheetah onboard the ship. Horn is the one who came with an affinity for exotic animals. A family friend of his owned a zoo and he was exposed to these animals at an early age. Horn was a waiter on the cruise ship when he met Fishbacher, and that meeting is what lead to him become a performer. Eventually the pair’s act caught the eye of people who invited them to Las Vegas.

Siegfried and Roy‘s Las Vegas home was never planned to be a tourist attraction. Even though estates of other late performers have followed that path, Fishbacher made it very clear that was never going to be the destiny for his home. Horn famously survived a tiger attack in 2003, but died in 2020 from complications from Covid-19. Fishbacher died just eight months later from pancreatic cancer. The men’s personal belongings were auctioned off earlier this year in Los Angeles. And now their Las Vegas home will be demolished to make way for new building. As reported by 8NewsNow, the property will be the future home to a new apartment complex project that will start in 2024.

Still would have been cool to tour it before it gets the wrecking ball.

Eat Inside Of A Jungle In Las Vegas

Las Vegas is the quintessential hub for all things luxury hotels and casinos. They set the standard for hospitality in the nation being one of the top in providing exceptional service.

The Bellagio Las Vegas Hotel & Casino is no exception to being one of the most extravagant hotel and casinos on the Las Vegas Strip with it’s Europe-village ambiance, upscale shopping and fine dining restaurants.

The building was inspired from a small “city” in the province of Como which resides in northern-central part of Italy called Lombardy. Bellagio is located on Lake Como providing inspiration for the architecture.

Walking in and around the Bellagio, one feels as if they have been transmitted into an Italian renaissance with the villa archways and beautiful gardens.
