 The Riviera


 The Riviera opened on April 20, 1955; and closed on May 4, 2015. It was located in Winchester, NV.  The Riviera is noted for being the first high-rise on the Strip.  Liberace was the featured headliner during the resort's grand opening.

Now, the Riviera is one of the last of the old Vegas casinos in the era of the mega-casino resorts.  The Riviera was the ninth to open on the Strip.  Dean Martin was once a part-owner.
