Riviera Hotel and Casino closes its doors

After being in business for over 60 years, and hosting entertainment heavyweights such as Liberace, Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, and Barbara Streisand, Riviera Hotel and Casino, or The Riv, as it is sometimes referred to, has finally closed its doors. Riviera Hotel and Casino was amongst the first Las Vegas casinos that was established during the days when the mob controlled Sin City. The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority purchased the casino and the 26 acres that it sits on in February, and plans to expand the Las Vegas Convention Center to the Strip. The furniture and fixtures inside the casino will most likely be auctioned off in mid May, before the casino is taken down by implosion.
