With its star-lit glass exterior, you can’t miss the Riviera as you drive down the Strip. Its location at the north end of Las Vegas Boulevard, bridging the classic style of downtown Vegas with the modern-day mega resorts further south, confirms the symbolic standing of this resort as a place where the past meets the present.
Celebrating 50 years of non-stop 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 1961 classic “Ocean’s 11″ and Martin Scorsese’s “Casino.” Today, the Riviera still offers top-notch shows, each one with its own unique character. Crazy Girls is Las Vegas’ sexiest topless revue and the Riviera Comedy Clubbrings nationally known comics to the stage every night.
Dining is well covered by a wide range of dining rooms, from the seafood and prime steaks at Kristofer’s to the Champagne Brunch at the World’s Fare Buffet. The Riviera’s 100,000-square-foot casino floor continues to be one of Vegas’ most active, with gambling options from table games to slots.
Other amenities include a spa Achilles 24 Hour Spa and Sauna, a wedding chapel, an outdoor pool and a fun-filled arcade area for younger visitors.
