The Riviera Hotel and Casino enjoys a legendary past as one of the first top-notch Las Vegas hotels in the State of Nevada, known for its big name entertainment and friendly hospitality, as well as its worldwide name recognition. The historic Riviera had its Golden Anniversary in 2005, and is one of the State's premier destination spots offering the passion and excitement of nostalgic Las Vegas and the Rat Pack Era, combined with a modern day, multi-million dollar remodeling of rooms and convention facilities, bringing the property up to par with today's mega-resort competition.
The Riviera, with its visually stunning exterior, is hard to miss on a cruise down the Las Vegas Strip. Riviera Hotel has often been touted as a bridge between vintage downtown Las Vegas style and the style of megaresorts further south on the Strip. It is a melting pot where past and present meets.
If Las Vegas really is the entertainment capital of the world, it is due in large part to the Riviera Hotel. It was the host of two classic Las Vegas films, "Casino" and "Ocean's Eleven". In addition to this heritage as a movie site, the Riviera draws in many top entertainers. Its shows are wild: Crazy Girls is a sexy topless show, An Evening At La Cage is a burlesque drag-queen show, A Neil Diamond Tribute is a tribute show that attracts music fans. In addition, the Riviera Comedy Club brings big name comics to the stage. You'll never be bored at the Riviera.
