Where Las Vegas - - CONTENTS -

A hot­bed for celebrity per­for­mances and sight­ings since it opened in 1955, the iconic Riviera has seen, through­out the years, Mar­lene Di­et­rich, Gin­ger Rogers, the Car­pen­ters and Lib­er­ace (who cut the rib­bon at its open­ing) per­form. Built for the mod­est sum of $10 mil­lion, at nine sto­ries tall it was the first high-rise casino on the Strip. The Riv was a popular spot for film­ing movies as well—scenes from the orig­i­nal “Oceans Eleven,” “Casino,” “Ve­gas Va­ca­tion” and “The Han­gover” were all shot there. The Riviera closes its doors on May 4, but you still have a chance to win your share of $500,000 in the Clas­sic Cash Give­away— check with the Riviera Re­wards Cen­ter for de­tails. Its closing marks the end of an era in Las Ve­gas his­tory. We salute you, Riv, thanks for the mem­o­ries! 702.734.5110
