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.

“"Gertie" is quite a gal!”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

I was afraid this might be a tourist trap..but NO! The shows at Gerties were very entertaining. The performers are quite good-especially the star-Gertie. They start the evening with a family show, then a more risque version. The mid-night show is pretty adult. Very entertaining. Really a must-see if you've gone all the way to Dawson City.

“Entertainment”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

With the flavor of the 1898 Gold Rush featuring Can Can Dancers and Miss Diamond Tooth Gertie singing, the Honky Tonk Piano music and gambling it is a super place to spend an evening.

“Something fun and different”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

We went here when the Over The Top Race from Tok, Alaska to Dawson City was on so were entertained by the Snowshoe Shufflers! Definitely a show to be remembered & great fun.

“What a show!”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Had a ball! We ate supper 1st at there little restaurant they had in the back of the dance hall. Awesome homemade Meatloaf dinner for $6.00. The show was excellent, and what a voice on Diamond Tooth Gertie. The Can- Can girls were super. Nice little gambling hall there also. Perfect night out, at a reasonable price.

“Centre of the nightlife in Dawson City, a must visit”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

Cabaret and casino, with three shows per night in season, can-can girls and Gerdie as hostess. Performances progressed in time over the course of the evening, so stay for all three shows
