Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino to Debut Crown Theater and Crown Nightclub

April 14, 2010 by  

Industry veteran Darin Feinstein brings Crown Theater and Crown Nightclub to the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino this summer in the former 3121 space. Feinstein, who purchased the world-famous The Viper Room from actor Johnny Depp, will put the world-renowned Rio venue back on the Vegas map with a mix of live concerts and nightlife events.

“The location has hosted both nightclub and headliner performances featuring world-class entertainment including the legendary Prince,” said Gary Selesner, president of Rio.  “We are thrilled to launch a new offering combining the best of live music and late night entertainment. Crown will appeal to locals and visitors alike, serving as the perfect complement to the diverse roster of Rio resort amenities.”

The venue’s 900-capacity unique, in-the-round design will feature intimate performances by some of the biggest, as well as upcoming, names in music as part of Crown Theater’s offerings. As the night progresses, so does the venue, becoming Crown Nightclub, a nightlife spot away from The Strip providing a mix of themed nights with a variety of music. The multi-tiered venue features VIP seating around the arch of each level, complete with low-slung, modern furnishings, giving way to a panoramic view of the venue.

“My venue, The Viper Room, hosted some of the top live performances in Los Angeles, ranging from Queens of the Stone Age to Shiny Toy Guns – here at Crown Las Vegas, we’ll showcase a similar lineup of quality acts” said Feinstein. “For nightlife, after the various concert series, you can look forward to a themed venue night hosted by one of the top domestic or international DJs. It’s important to remember that The Rio hosted one of the top concert/nightclub venues in the country for more than a decade; we’re looking forward to being part of its resurgence.”

The booking of Crown Theater will be under the direction of Joe Rinaldi who brings to the table years of experience booking venues including The Viper Room and House of Blues-Live Nation, as well as experience with multiple installation shows for major music conventions including South by Southwest and CMJ. Additionally, Rinaldi has worked on the artist side during his time with Ultimatum Records giving him well-rounded experience in working with both the artist and venue.

Schedules, times and ticket prices for concerts, events and nightlife will be announced at a later date.
