"Midcentury Las Vegas"

The historic home of Antonio Morelli, the famed musical director and orchestra conductor of the Sands Hotel's legendary Copa Showroom, stands tall as a reminder of the city's illustrious past. The house is a charming example of Midcentury Modern architecture, featuring glass walls, an open floor plan and the use of natural building materials; a style that was typical of the houses constructed during the 1950s and 1960s in Las Vegas. While the architecture of the house alone is emblematic of Las Vegas in the 1950s, the house was also an after-hours meeting place for the Rat Pack, including the likes of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Nat King Cole. Although a little known treasure, the Morelli House is a place of pilgrimage for fans of the midcentury legends of entertainment. The Morelli House was rescued, relocated and restored by the Junior League of Las Vegas, and now serves as their administrative headquarters. Tours, open days and special events are often organized, however, if you would like to visit at any other time you must schedule a visit by contacting the Junior League.
