This lovely vintage postcard is unused.
Th Hacienda opened in 1956 and was imploded on New Year’s Eve December 1996. It was located on the very south end of the strip, near McCarran Airport, in the location where Mandalay Bay now stands.
Here’s a YouTube of the implosion:
The implosion wasn’t the final bit of the Hacienda, though. The next day, the rest of the demolition work began. This website has some excellent photos of what was left after the explosion.
