The Rat Pack at The Sands in Las Vegas, 1960. ??
This spooky house befitting a member of the Addams Family or the Munsters is a part of the long standing tradition of the Gothic Revival architecture, a movement that started way back in 1740. People have always been obsessed with Gothic architecture so it’s no surprise that the design aesthetic continued into the 19th century.
Inspired by medieval design, the Gothic Revival style was most often used for country homes, or small town houses. These houses are incredibly sturdy, which is why so many of them are still standing today.
The height on many of these houses is such that ivy and vines creep up their walls, making them look more haunted than they actually are. Still, it would be pretty cool to live in a house like this.
In the 1960s no one was cooler than the guys in the Rat Pack. Not only were they epitome of what has happening, but they managed to make bad behavior look good in their well tailored suits.
More of a gang than a group of performers, these hard living and hell raising guys were the number one reason many people traveled to Las Vegas. After all, where else could you catch a Sinatra show and a Sammy Davis Jr. drop in? Nowhere, baby.
The Rat Pack created such an air of cool about themselves that people still look to them for style choices and even for sounds. It’s going to be a long time before these guys go out of fashion.
