It’s been open for less than a year, but we hear Redneck Riviera is closing at Grand Bazaar Shops at Bally’s.
Redneck Riviera opened in Feb. 2017, backed by country star John Rich, whoever that might actually be.
The decision to pull the plug on the country-themed Redneck Riviera comes after months of struggling to connect with Las Vegas visitors.
Redneck Riviera featured live country music and a “Heroes Bar,” touted as being “staffed by veterans” and offering military members and veterans their first drink free.
The bar had some distinctive decorative elements, including an American flag fashioned from beer cans, a sequined saddle and creative bathroom fixtures.
It’s unknown what will replace Redneck Riviera after it closes, expected to happen as soon as the end of the month.
Updated (2/20/18): Our story has been confirmed with the closure of Redneck Riviera at Grand Bazaar Shops. It appears the venue’s Facebook page hasn’t been informed of the closure, and the Grand Bazaar Shops Web site is also in denial.
