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

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.

Did not have anything to eat here. The show was a fun evening for the price. Was relaxing after a long day.

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

The show was entertaining, but maybe a little short. The drinks were good. We don't really gamble. We just went there really for something to do.

This place was great. The shows were entertaining and the shows were fun. It cost a bit more than I expected to get in but it was still fun. We lost some money but had fun doing it.

My 1st trip to Gerties was in '87. Plenty of charm back then. Slot machines might bring in the money but the casino has lost its old world charm and atmosphere. Best to order 2 drinks at a time, service was slow. The Floor Show is fun to see. Once.

$12 to get in per person, per year but the fee goes to a not-for-profit society that puts the $ back into the community. Walking in through the doors is like stepping back in time. You must stay for the follies in the evening and watch Diamond Tooth Gertie entertain the audience. Lots of laughs and so much fun!!

Diamond Tooth Gertie's has a "wide-open" feel that makes you want to have a drink, spin the roulette wheel and enjoy another show. Cute dancers, super-friendly personnel. Feels like the Klondike days of old.

They have three nightly shows and the show is more risqué each show. They have a nice bar area. It's old style cowboy red everywhere. Good songs good dancing can can style. Lots of fun. You can gamble they have a casino

We thought we'd go in and gamble a token $5 or something to say we did, but it's $10 to get in because of the show (we didn't want to be bothered with dancing girls). HIstorical, though, not a waste of time if it's for you.
