Owner description: Dawson City’s world famous non-profit gambling hall is named after bona fide dance hall queen Diamond Tooth Gertie. 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.

The entertainment on stage was great. I enjoyed it. Talented ladies! I would suggest getting there 30 minutes before the show begins.

Relax, kick back, get in the spirit...anyway you want to say it, it comes down to this; Diamond Tooth Gerties is a fun place to spend some time. There are locals and tourists side by side. Don't expect Las Vegas, its the Klondike and that is more earthy. The shows are quite good, the food is fine and out the... More

Liked the costumes, the singing and dancing. Part of he money from Diamond Tooth Gerties goes to charity. What I didn't like was the service.

Back to the Gold Rush daze. Loved Dawson City. The show was really good with Gertie and the four can-can dancers but very professional. There is a small casino and lots waiting to play cards. We did not stay long but am so glad I got to see this place. Had one drink and then headed back to the only... More

The performers were exceptional and their interactions with those sitting in the front floor seats was hilarious. We aren't big gamblers so the few slot machines and the few tables were enough for us.

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!
