Riviera Casino is scheduled to close on May 4, 2015. The Riveria Casino building will be demolished as early as late summer or early fall of 2015.
The announcement came shortly after the historic Las Vegas landmark was sold to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority for up to $191 million in February of 2015.
An estimated 1,000 casino jobs will be lost.
“We greatly appreciate the expressions of fondness and loyalty for ‘The Riv’ from our guests since ground first broke in 1954 and through the years.” the press release stated. Coming this April 20th, Riviera Casino will celebrate it’s 60th anniversary. What is left of old Vegas? This is another mark that the times keep changing and instead of revamping and upgrading the old, the new Vegas will replace.
