the Riviera Casino Complex in the northern part of the strip has seen better days. Due to the number of closures at the northern end of the Strip, the foot traffic in the area has significantly reduced hence the Riviera is now on Chapter 11 (Bankruptcy mode). The Riviera was formerly surrounded by The Stardust, The New Frontier and The Westward Ho, properties which were demolished to make room for new construction. A shutdown in the new construction in progress at the adjacent Fontainebleau Resort Las Vegas and Echelon Place contributed to the Riviera's downfall, It was formerly one of the major casinos in the strip when it started in 1955 and the complex has a total of 2,100 rooms and has a 110,000 square feet of slot machines and table games. if you are in the Northern area of the Strip, try to check this out before it goes under like the Stardust.
