People tend to check in during these times:
At the the post modern jukebox show. Tickets were over sold. The place is packed way beyond capacity. Someone should call the cops before the upper balconies collapse on top of the floor crowd.
Went to see Kendrick Lamar and Jay Rock here for the Kuntas Groove Sessions. The Riviera is a nice venue loved that the crowd was so diverse!
Fantastic, large venue with ample standing room downstairs and unreserved upstairs balcony seating. This venue offers interesting historical architecture in addition to any show you'll see here.
Fabulous architecture and never seen a bad show here.
Yeah it's a decent place to see a show but it's an old building, gets really smelly, and the bathroom situation is a little ridiculous. Only go here if you really like the bands you're going to see.
Some great shows here, and fun to either sit up in the balcony or stand close to the stage
Very strange seating set up with standing room going way too far back for decent viewage. The architecture tho is brilliant as with all Uptown venues. A little smack of history w ur rock show.
STFU #ChiTown and listen to the music.
Great place to see a show, but it's basically a shit hole that the owners won't put any money into. It's a shame, because it's easy to see how beautiful a place it probably was at one time.
Cool venue, but could use some acoustic upgrades.
The sound quality at this venue isn't the greatest. The good thing though is the performances feel more intimate.
The views from the balcony are fantastic and the drink lines are non existent. If you don't want to step away from the show there are waitresses too.
Cool tip: this place sucks
It's not the best place to see a show, the sound is mediocre and there is not a lot of places to see well, esp as a shorty like me
They pack way too many people in the theater for a concert. Don't think I'll ever go back to this location again for a concert.
Ownership lacks capital to restore bldg
Need to use the restroom? Head to the main lobby and down the stairs. North side for men, South side for women! Handicap restrooms available on the first floor.
If you are interested in meeting the act that you just saw perform, head to the side door on Racine Ave. or head over to the Green Mill, where many acts go to catch live music until 5AM.
The sound and view during a show is usually better upstairs. Not the best place in the city, but way better sound than The Aragon. Grab dinner at Sun Wah up Broadway before the show.
If you need to go to the bathroom, don't wait until you get to the venue. The restrooms are in less than desirable condition unfortunately.
Hey there! Since you're so close, come by for some cheap eats after the show. Your first Foursquare check-in gets you $10 off the purchase of two entrees.
Wilco's favorite place to play in Chicago. Don't miss them at the Riv.
Bring a nicotine patch, no re entry.
You're going to want to take off that hipster sweater; it's burning up in the balcony!

Just great theatre with history.
Chicago: Built in 1917 as a movie palace, "The Riv" now hosts some of Chicago's best live shows, including the famous Wilco residency in 2008. -IFC Staff
See a show at the Riv!
If you have to drive to the Riv or the Aragon park in the residential area just south west of the Lawrence Broadway intersection. Don't pay $20 for parking.
La ventilación es bien malita, pero el resto ok
