Riviera Hotel and Casino is a part of a 60- year history

In Las Vegas, the famous complex Riviera Hotel and Casino, which functioned on the territory of the state since 1955, was closed this Monday, on 4 May. It was going to celebrate its 60th anniversary. Such stars as Liberace, Orson Welles, Bob Hope, Sammy Davis Jr., Marlene Dietrich, Louis Armstrong, Dean Martin, Elvis Presley, Barbra Streisand, Harry Belafonte and the Village People performed there. Its immortalized “Crazy Girls” topless show is moving down the Strip to Planet Hollywood.

Whatever happens in Vegas gets blown to bits in Vegas?

Casino Riviera in its history went bankrupt several times and many more times changed its owners. Imagine that the casino had to change the original owner before it was completed. Detroit’s mobster William Biskof wanted to name his casino Casa Blanca, but left the project, giving it to John Samuel Cohen. He, in his turn, also left the board of the casino, at least officially, after Cohen was suspected to be a member of a gangster syndicate.

As it was told to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the reason for closing the Riviera Hotel and Casino is the fact that Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority bought the 26-acre property in February. On May 14, the sale of the equipment and furniture from the entertainment complex will begin. According to preliminary estimates, the total amount from the sale of property Riviera Hotel and Casino is $ 3 million. Anyone can pay a small monetary contribution and participate in the upcoming auction.

At the end of winter, the building of Riviera Hotel and Casino became the property of the company Las Vegas Convention Center for $182.5 million. On the 26 acres of the gambling and entertainment complex, there was a casino and a hotel with 2075 comfortable rooms.’s previous news related to the topic: The UK Gambling Commission meliorates safe regulations.
