Rare mid-20th C promotional cocktail recipe book from the Pioneer Club, a Las Vegas casino that opened in 1942 in Downtown Las Vegas, at 25 East Fremont Street. It ceased operating as a casino in 1995. For many years, it was one of downtown's leading gambling establishments.

This cocktail recipe book issued by the casino somewhat uncommon... at the time of cataloguing, we see no others on the market.
