Behind The Booth: Frank Sinatra & Booth 22

Behind The Booth: Frank Sinatra & Booth 22
Frank Sinatra (1915 – 1998) was an iconic American singer, actor, and producer from Hoboken, New Jersey. Known as "Ol' Blue Eyes" and "The Voice," Sinatra's career spanned over six decades, leaving an indelible mark on the world of music and entertainment. With his smooth, velvety voice and unparalleled charisma, he became one of the best-selling music artists of all time, with hits like "My Way," "New York, New York," and "Fly Me to the Moon."

Sinatra's influence extended beyond music into film, where he starred in over 60 movies and won an Academy Award for his performance in "From Here to Eternity" (1953). He embodied the essence of cool and sophistication, leaving an enduring legacy as a cultural icon of the 20th century. Despite his passing in 1998, Sinatra's legacy continues to inspire countless artists and entertainers, ensuring that his legend lives on for generations to come.

Sinatra was also a regular at the Golden Steer. The restaurant was a popular destination for celebrities during the 1950s and 1960s, and Sinatra was among the most frequent visitors along with the rest of the infamous "Rat Pack," a group of entertainers that included Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., and others. He enjoyed the privacy and exclusivity the restaurant offered, and would often order his favorite dish, the Steak Pizzaiola, while holding court from Booth 22. Those fortunate enough to dine on the same evening would often enjoy an impromptu serenade from “Ol’ Blue Eyes” himself.

Sinatra's patronage helped to establish the Golden Steer as a legendary destination in Las Vegas, and we honor his legacy at the Steer to this day.
