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.

Entertainment is the Riviera's last name, and a large selection of dining destinations, gambling options and other amenities make it the place to be for a real Vegas experience.

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 offers four main nightly shows, each one with its own unique character. Splash has been making waves for more than 20 years, Crazy Girls is Las Vegas' sexiest topless revue and the Riviera Comedy Club brings nationally known comics to the stage every night. An Evening At La Cage rounds up the list with classic drag-queen burlesque and host Frank Marino as Joan Rivers.

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 that include the popular Penny Town -- an area full of penny slot machines for the budget-conscious gambler looking for a fun time.

Other amenities include a spa (the Executive Fitness at the Riviera), a wedding chapel and a fun-filled arcade area for younger visitors.

If you came here looking for historic Sin City accompanied by contemporary comforts, the Riviera is more than happy to oblige.
