Riviera Casino and Hotel Las Vegas 2010 2011

Las Vegas has never seemed to concerned about saving history. In most cases it just implodes it’s past to make way for the future. There have been some cases were old buildings get a remodel and open under new names – but this is rare.

On June 14, 2016 the process of removing Riviera Casino and Hotel’s part in Vegas history was started. A fireworks show – with countdown numbers in these burst. Then implosion of Riviera’s 24-story Monaco Tower took place. Another Vegas icon wiped away in seconds.

Photos show outside of Riviera Casino – they were taken in 2010 and 2011. I never stayed or played at this property. But did make sure to take plenty of photographs. Unfortunately this was before I purchased video camera I now use.

Riviera (hotel and casino) (colloquially, “the Riv”) was a hotel and casino on the Las Vegas Strip in Winchester, Nevada which operated from April 1955 to May 2015. It is owned by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, which plans to demolish it to make way for the Las Vegas Global Business District. The Riviera opened on April 20, 1955 as the first high-rise and the ninth resort on the Las Vegas Strip.
