Las Vegas entrepreneur Steve Wynn designed the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino to attract families with children. The property boasted a skull-and-crossbones pirate theme, a kid-friendly pool area and a video game arcade. The casino presented free pirate shows several times a night at the casino entrance in a man-made lake named Buccaneer Bay.

In 2003, the hotel replaced the kid's pool area with an adult nightclub and party bar. The same year, Treasure Island renamed the artificial lake to Sirens' Cove and replaced the pirate show with a revue that featured scantily-clad women and a pirate named Eros. In 2013, the casino closed the lake to make room for a multilevel shopping area and 24-hour pharmacy.
