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.

Admittance was 12 bucks, and good for the rest of the season. The performance is corny but not bad, the building is interesting, and the girls are cute. Worth it even if you're not gambling.

Enjoyed the music and atmosphere of Gertie's. They got the audience involved with the dancing girls-picking "willing" men out of the audience. It was great fun and lots of laughs. We stayed for 2 of the 3 shows. Posing for pictures was great too!

The price is right, the drinks are good, the atmosphere makes the place. We came for the first show and stayed for the second one. We would have stayed for the third but we were too tired to stay until midnight. We had a balcony seat so our view was quite good - the show was great fun, with dancing,... More

Gerties is a must when in Dawson City. They feature a bar, slots, and some gaming tables. Dance hall show was a reminder of the gold rush days.

Well, in this mining town of years past ... this is about the only place for visitors. Go to the first showing, as it gets crowded. The locals appear to have the game tables taken up as regulars. Service is sloooow. Could be due to difficulty in getting help in this isolated place up north in the Klondike. Short show,... More

Fun fun fun. Nice singing and dancing in an old time saloon atmosphere. Three shows a night with costumed high kicking girls. One ticket gets you in any time for a season, so stay for the next show or come tomorrow night.

The show is worth the visit. The performers are talented and the show fast paced. Loved the can can girls and the mistress of ceremonies! And the little live band with piano player and drummer! Its a great space and liked that the proceeds go back into the government coffers. Well done!
