The Riviera is one of the oldest and most famous casino resorts in Las Vegas, as well as the first high-rise to open on the Strip. It's had several celebrity partial-owners over the years, including Dean Martin and two of the Marx brothers, Harpo Marx and Gummo Marx. Liberace was the featured headliner at the resort's opening, and for many years afterward. Today, the Riviera features two permanent shows: Crazy Girls, a topless revue, and Illusions, featuring German Illusionist Jan Rouven. This legendary hotel has also been the site of many film shoots, including "The Hangover", "21", "Showgirls", and the original "Ocean's Eleven".
