With its star-lit glass exterior, you can't miss the Riviera as you drive down the Strip. Its location toward the north end of Las Vegas Boulevard, bridging the classic style of downtown with the modern-day megaresorts farther south, confirms the symbolic standing of this property as a place where the past meets the present.
Celebrating 59 years of nonstop entertainment, the Riviera is one of the reasons why Las Vegas has been dubbed the "Entertainment Capital of the World." Over the years, the hotel has played host to hundreds of legendary performers and dozens of film and television productions, including two of the ultimate Vegas films: the 1960 Rat Pack classic "Ocean's 11" and Martin Scorsese's "Casino."
Today, the Riviera still offers top-notch shows, each one with its own unique character. The Riviera Comedy Club brings nationally known comedians to the stage every night. Headliners and nationally known comedians appear at the resort regularly. The hilarious one-man production "40 Is Not the New 20" stars 25-year comedy veteran Matt Kazam and explores how much the world has changed in the past 40 years. The sexy "Crazy Girls" cast perform in a sensuous and fun-loving topless revue, and there's a hot male revue called "Men the Experience" (on hiatus until January 2015). Two nostalgia-filled productions -- "Forever Motor City" and "Forever Doo Wop" -- are featured at the resort. For dangerous and thrilling feats of magic, be sure to check out German-born Jan Rouven in "Illusions" (closing Nov. 17, 2014). And on Dec. 1, 2014, master magician Dirk Arthur will bring his big cats to the resort as part of the "Wild Illusions!" show.
Dining is well covered by a wide range of eateries, from the seafood and prime steaks at R Steak & Seafood to the Banana Leaf Asian Restaurant, which has the Far East covered with a menu of eclectic dishes from Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and China. The Wicked Vicky Tavern offers favorites like burgers, wings, pizzas, nachos, soups and salads along with more than 100 beers.
The Riviera's more than 100,000-square-foot casino floor continues to be one of Vegas' most active, with options from table games to slots and video poker. Plus, there is a William Hill Race & Sports Book.
Other amenities include Zeba's Beauty Salon, a barber shop, a tattoo studio, a gym, a wedding chapel and an outdoor pool. The Pinball Hall of Fame and a fun-filled arcade area are sure to impress younger visitors.
From the bright, neon-lit facade to the 2,075 rooms, the Riviera combines the passion and excitement of nostalgic Las Vegas with the style and comfort that have put the city on the map.
