Located on the North Side of Chicago, Illinois is the famous and historical Riviera Theater. This indoor concert venue was first built in 1917 and designed to be part of the Balaban and Katz theatre chain. Years later the Riviera Theatre would become a private nightclub until reopening as a concert venue. As part of the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago it is in the company of several other notable music venues including the nearby Aragon Ballroom. The company is also operated by the same company that owns The Vic, Park West and Jam Productions. The theater is most known for its grand interior design and its homage to its original 1917 roots which can seen throughout the venue with its historic decor.
