Attraction details
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.

“Nice little show”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

When in Dawson.... According to this motto, we went to see Gertie. Got what we expected and where not disapointed.
Staff was very nice and also able to get us cocktails, that where not on the menu. We saw the 10:30 show.

Gertie had a good voice, the dancers were entertaining and the piano player was enjoyable. A seat in the balcony afforded a view of the whole show.

Wow! Best entertainment north of Las Vegas and it's free. If you can stay awake, hit the midnite show. It's a great show,half price drinks and you can gamble too. What more do you wan? You cannot visit Dawson City without a stop at Gerties.

“Super fun and a great show`”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

We had lots of fun watching the dancing girls - very entertaining a tasteful show. We went to the early show so all the jokes were clean, apparently it gets more risque as the night goes on...
