The Riviera had a good run -- it was open just over 60 years, closing in May 2015.
The property saw many changes over the years, and this photograph taken by Federal Heath shows the last façade of the property envisioned by designer Marge Williams. Many of the signs in this photo are now in the Neon Museum collection; several of the stars, plus the Riviera towards the bottom left were donated to us when the property closed. Thanks for the memories, Riv, your story lives on at the Neon Museum.
