They did not basically let us in because we are two females. I find this very upsetting because we are both queer, and we're looking to just enjoy the show. they claimed that it was bc some ladies had come in before looking for their bfs, but that has nothing to do with us. This is homophobic and gender discrimination. BEWARE.

Horribly run place. They wouldn't allow me in because I was too "drunk". We came here for my hubby's bday after beer garden . Mind u I drank 2 beers!! 2 lol . I've been here quite a few times before and have seen men ridiculously drunk or drugged . I've seen fights break out and no one do shit about it. Disgusting establishment . I felt extremely discriminated against because both the bouncer and everyone else in my party knew I was not drunk.

Strip Club ? No more like a dump! This is one of the most disgusting establishments I have ever been to. This establishment is for those looking to throw their money at hood rats so if you are then this is the venue for you. Vip is gross. I have seen restrooms in truck stops that are cleaner. The music they play is all low down dirty ghetto hood rap. Dancers are sloppy and unattractive. Bouncers are very strict and do a good job of weeding out most of the garbage that this place attracts.

I came Friday night around 10:30 for a few hours with a group of friends; 2 females, 4 males. Street parking's easy, cover fee $20, mandatory coat check $3. There's women of all shapes, sizes, ethnicities. I disagree with previous reviewers that there was too a lot of silicon going on. 30% of breasts/butt surgery which is less then other clubs or maybe it was done so well I couldn't tell. Reasons why I gave only 3 stars: 1. The layout of this place SUCKS. The stage is behind the bar and people reserve bar spots. So unless you made reservations or get table service end up standing around and just straight up staring. 2. Only 4 women did tricks on the pole. One was a older brunette with killer abs, another looked like Ariel from the little mermaid, and the other two had undistinguishable features. The rest of the dancers just shook it. I prefer my dancers to be able to put on a show. 3. When tipping, some dancers would take the dollars from your hand instead of letting you tuck it somewhere. I don't like that. 4. Smoking is allowed.

Pretty good strip club. Cover charge is not worth it. Drink service sucks. Strippers are all beautiful. Bouncers are retarded, but functional. I got in with contraband twice. The girls pick up the slack.

Always a party up in this spot! Can get pricy but the party is well worth it! Strippers are hot, drinks are strong! Music is good.

Standing up was a little tiring because it was so crowded that going to the bathroom was a mission. Overall was Great and woman were gorgeous (a little too much silicone for my taste though) $30 for a lapdance is a little steep but so is the price of a good time.

It's wrong to be a fan of a stripclub : ) A-ok sounds just fine.. this was only my 2nd club, but i preferred the latina/black mix this place had vs the mostly white dancers i'd seen in arizona. i also got in a lil dancing to some unexpected music, always a plus for me.these girls pass around and you stick money in their bras.highlight(?) of the night was when one dancer rubbed stuffed my face in her boobs..she'd thought i was a bit too shy apparently. sigh : )

This place has more dudes than women. Turn off. Very few of the girls do anything acrobatic. Turn off. I went to the VIP. The upswing is a very private booth. The down swing is that other than that, this place feels.... skeevy. I've been in clubs that weren't half a big which felt classier. You are very aware of the racket. That literally makes this place feel like an actual meat market. So there is a sadness in the room. The girl who gave the private dance gave me her number afterward. When we talked later, she mentioned that the club takes about 50% with fees. I mentioned for that much, they should get their hairy behinds up on stage and shake it.

Please don't patronize this place and their sketchy ways. The people who run this joint are awful people who like to try and sweep GRAND LARCENY AND FELONY FRAUD under the rug.The owner of this place is a sketchball, amongst other things that I'm too ladylike to even think of.I was robbed back in 2006 and the lovely ladies that took my wallet decided to head on over to the Riviera to enjoy a night's partying on me.They ordered two bottles of Grey Goose and chucked the balance of the bill onto my debit card. When I got home around 4 a.m. and realized my wallet was missing, I ran to the computer to check my account and cancel my cards. Lo and behold, the $500 charge was already there from Riviera.After canceling my cards, I called Riviera to tell them about what happened and see if they knew who used my card. The owner flipped out on me and told me it was "impossible" that someone besides me used my card and that I was "just trying to get out of paying my bottle service tab", saying that they check ID's when people pay for such large tabs to make sure the person matches up with the card - then he hung up on me.Thirty minutes later, I get a call back from the same guy telling me that he caught the girls who used my card. Since the bitch stole my wallet, she had my driver's license that she used with my debit card to make the purchase look legit. The only problem is, that chick was Spanish, 5'3'' and pushing 30. I was 19, 5'10'' and Middle Eastern. Nice job catching the differences. Oh, and yes, I never had a fake ID so my license said I was NINETEEN. How in the world do you sell two bottles of liquor to an underage girl at a strip club if you're sooo good at checking IDs?The next day I went down to pick up what was left of my wallet that the cleaning crew found flung on the floor. By the way, my then-boyfriend was NOT allowed to go into the place with me to talk to the owner - he told the bouncer to keep him at the door. Sketchy part #8,659. The owner took polaroids of all the culprits as well as their info - but then he instructed me NOT to go to the police because they were part of "a bad crew from Brooklyn and they WILL come after you." Hah. Nice try. You're just trying to save your ass because you sold liquor to some girl who presented you fraudulent ID and debit card that said she was 19. I went to the police anyway, but nothing ever came out of it, of course.

I haven't been here for almost a year but I do remember a latin hottie name Silk that worked here that you would consider thick. Nice ass and shapely legs. Does anyone that goes to this club know if she is still working here? IMHO she's the only one worth checking out - all the other girls are toothpicks and nothing sexy about them.

Nice club. You can have a good time with a girl in the CR room, but be prepared to spend $500 when all is said and done.

I personally love Riviera!! I am a girl and my man goes here all the time so I finally went with him, I was nervous at first, it was my first time there and I just turned 21 so I didn't know what to expect, but I LOVED IT! Pretty chicks, all different types, they're nice and respectful and didn't try to do shit to my man to try to get me mad, I've had that experience in trashy shitholes like Club 37 in brooklyn! But this place is great, drinks are reasonable price, the music is hot, crowd isn't too rowdy at all, and you just leave there wishing you could stay longer! Long live Riviera! I'm getting dressed right now to go with my boo! Free admission on Sundays, Mondays and Wednesdays!

Place set up nice clean and friendly. Dancers really work the stage. Only draw backs music to loud and dancers a little on the slim side for my taste. but worth a second visit I did pick a slow day of the week on purpose for a first visit.

Love this club, classy, yet relaxed atmosphere. The girls are so hot!!!! I love Mia, also stay away from Touch, crappy bikini club with a bunch of dirty Mexican looking dancers. Almost as bad as Mermaids.

was there over the weekend, and the girls were a 3-7. there was one dancer there who probably was about 74 pounds. you saw every bone in her body and not one curve whatsoever. not very attractive. if there is dining here you should suggest her eating something. as far as russians go, there has to be a ratio and as far as i can see this is another queens club that will be run by those girls, and that would be fine and all except for the pressure to get a dance and/or a bj after their shift is over. i dont see this club lasting more than a year

This place is great!! Great location and safe neighborhhood, I mean you don't have to worry about your car getting all jacked up. Hottest Dancers in NY!!! This is the way i remember Strip Clubs; classy, SKINNY beautiful women, and really great appetizers. Can't wait for the steak house to make its debut. I mean even the barmaids/waitresses are good looking and a lot of fun. Keep up the good work and good luck to this club.
