The “Crazy Girls” at the Riviera are getting some company.
The hotel-casino has announced plans to launch “Men: The Experience” late next month, a new male revue that marks the latest edition to the Riviera’s entertainment offerings.
The 75-minute show features the tried-and-true fare of male revues across the Strip, including a multimedia set and well-muscled male dancers performing skilled choreography in costumes ranging from secret agents to cowboys to firefighters.
"We're thrilled to welcome ‘Men: The Experience’ to Riviera Hotel & Casino and to continue our partnership with Red Mercury," said Alex Rangel, Riviera Hotel & Casino's vice president of marketing and entertainment. "There's no question our guests will enjoy the addition of this sexy and fun show to our already diverse entertainment lineup."
The production launches Monday, March 31, inside Crazy Girls Theater, with shows nightly at 7.
Tickets are $50 for general admission and $69 for VIP seating and go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through the Riviera box office and Ticketmaster.
With its glass, star-lit exterior, visitors can't miss the Riviera when driving down the Strip. As the first high-rise to open on the Las Vegas Strip, featuring a nine-story hotel, the Riviera has seen more than 50 years as an entertainment destination in Las Vegas. Top bill acts like Liberace, Dean Martin and the long-running Splash revue (closed in 2006) have graced its showrooms over time.
The Riviera still offers its share of entertainment options with topless revue "Crazy Girls," a comedy club and "Illusions," starring Jan Rouven.
The 100,000-square foot casino has been featured in many films like "Casino," "Austin Powers" and "21." Although the hotel has passed through a long list of owners over the years it has always held on to it's unique theme (for Las Vegas) in that it lacks any particular theme. It also features a William Hill Race & Sports Book walk-up betting window right off the sidewalk on the Strip.
The Riviera has dining options well covered, from seafood and steaks at R Steak and Seafood, a variety of breakfast, lunch and dinner fare at Banana Leaf Café to an international cuisine at the R Buffet.
