The venerable Riviera Supper Club was a popular bayshore destination for Green Bay residents seeking fine dining in the mid-1900s. This vintage postcard touted the prime view and elegant dining rooms. (On the back of the postcard, it read: “The discriminating choose Riviera Supper Club, house of GOOD FOOD, PERSONALIZED SERVICE.” The menu advertised fresh lobster, broiled steaks, and chicken.) In the mid-1960s, when Brown County put together its offer of land to the University of Wisconsin as a building site for the new UW-Green Bay, the privately-held Riviera was one of the properties designated for purchase and transfer. The aging building was one of the first to be razed as the site was developed.
