During the Gold Rush of 1898, in order to distinguish herself from numerous Klondike kings and queens, Gertie Lovejoy wedged a sparkling diamond between her two front teeth. Any discomfort this caused paid dividends. Instead of working the creeks for her riches, Diamond Tooth Gertie made her fortune by mining the lonely prospectors who readily opened their gold pokes in return for her affections. In Dawson City today, Gertrude Lovejoy’s moniker lives on at the town-run Diamond Tooth Gertie's Casino.Replete with cancan dancers and a singing master of ceremonies named Gertie, Canada’s oldest gambling hall gives you a chance to re-live the heady days of Dawson’s Gold Rush era. With three nightly shows by Gertie and her Gertie Girls, Diamond Tooth Gertie's is today a fixture of fun-filled entertainment where patrons can enjoy a beverage while playing blackjack, roulette, Texas Hold'em poker and an array of glittering slot machines. « less

Well, you're in the Yukon and it just oozes Gold Rush, so go to Gerties for the atmosphere. The show is fairly short (about 40 minutes), but you can stay for as many shows as you like. As a performer myself, I must say that the Gertie and her four can-can dancers worked very hard. There is also a casino... More

We were at Gerties most evenings off our week in Dawson. We enjoyed the shows, the staff, and everything in general. Even made a little bit of money at the slots. This venue had the feel of the gold rush days!

Diamond Tooth Gerties is the best way to pass your night in Dawson. Not only can the gambling be very cheap (meaning you don't lose much if you lose it all), but the dealers are talkative and the show's enjoyable. You have to pay a price for admission for the year ($12), but it's worth it. Drinks are also average... More

Interesting nightspot in Dawson City. Crowded (little else in town) lively (wonderful performers) and good drinks. Just don't expect the slots or other games of chance to pay off...

Three different dancing/singing shows a night a bar and a casino. All the locals go here, too. Pay one price and get free admission the rest of your stay.

Fun and cheap night out, believe it was $10 for a years entry. Three different shows (singing and dancing intertwined with humour) a night which are very professionally executed and entertaining. Older men sitting by the stage may become part of the show which is very funny. The food was good and plentiful (ordered at the counter), drink service may... More
