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.

Wanted to do a little gambling. They wanted me to pay a cover charge for a can-can show that they put on for the tourists. Paid the cover. Show was not worth the cost of the cover.

This was suggested by the waitress we had at dinner. We were unsure, but decided why not. We really thought it would be a bit of a predicable tourist "thing". Well, for the price, and the ability to see three different shows, even using your...More

We just went here for the 10pm Can Can show, and loved it! One of our group was pulled on to the stage, to help remove a garter! A fun place to go!

We really enjoyed the show at Gertie's. The old time dance hall girl style show was very well done and professional. The singer/mc was very talented. Very good entertainment, but get there early to get a table up front.

This is a most interesting venue to see for historical reasons, plus the show from the Klondike dancers is like stepping back in time to what it would have been like during the days of the gold rush. There is a small admission fee however...More

No, they would find it boring. Given the gambling I don't think they let anyone in under age 19

I think it was five dollars per person. Not expensive.
