Riviera Hotel and Casino now closed; “everything must go” sale

LAS VEGAS – Whether it’s a brass letter “R,” a baby grand piano or a hotel ice machine you desire, it’s all there inside the Riviera — for a price.

The Riviera Hotel and Casino closed May 4, but everything inside the 2,075-room hotel-casino must go.

National Content Liquidators has started selling it all at a public sale that started 9 a.m. Thursday.

The sale is open through mid-June, or until everything is sold. Admission costs $10 per person during the first four days, which likely will be the busiest. After that, it’s free.

The 60-year-old casino-hotel on the Las Vegas Strip is slated to be demolished by its new owners, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, before the end of the year.

An expanded convention centre will take its place.
