The Crown Theater at the Rio Hotel is hot and the Rio Hotel plans to add some fuel to the fire. Nightclub industry veteran Darin Feinstein plans to open the Crown Theater and Nightclub at the Rio's former 3121 space. The venue will provide a mix of live concerts and nightlife events throughout the year.
This space has been home to top entertainers including a brief run by the legendary Prince. Although the showroom seats more than 900 people, the "in-the-round" design allows for intimate performances by A-list stars and up-and-coming artists. After the concerts, the space turns into a nightclub featuring themed nights focused on various styles of music. Every seat in the theater has a panoramic view of the stage and VIP seating is abundant around each level and features low-slung, modern furnishings.
