Barlow, Councilman of Ward 5; break ground at the future site of The Venue Las Vegas, located at 760 Fremont Street on Thursday, August 7, 2014.
The Venues Group, a premier special event and entertainment facility group, celebrated the development of its downtown Las Vegas location with a ceremonial ground-breaking event today.
Executives from The Venue Scottsdale including Owner and Founder Victor Perrillo and Vice President David Twigger, along with Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman, commemorated The Venue Las Vegas with a brief press conference and VIP event to reveal information about the space and showcase architectural renderings of its future location, scheduled to open in February of 2015.
Since 2006, The Venue Scottsdale has been known as one of the most upscale and high-profile locations in the greater Phoenix, Arizona area to host special events, including music concerts, entertainment shows, charity galas, wedding ceremonies and receptions, meeting conventions and tradeshows, as well as social events such as proms, reunions, birthdays, anniversaries, and more. Expanding on its success in Scottsdale, The Venue Las Vegas will offer the same capabilities as the original location at its new property in the heart of downtown Las Vegas in the Fremont East District.
The Venue Las Vegas will feature 36,000 square feet of unique and versatile special event and meeting space with two full stories and a rooftop patio, including six indoor and outdoor event spaces for parties that can accommodate as little as 30 or up to 2,000 guests. Featuring exterior stone work and interior urban chic décor, the state-of-the-art event space will also include a built-in stage and entertainment hall with full audio and lighting production, on-site gourmet catering with limitless culinary options, private rooms, outdoor patios, a VIP and billiards area, and V2 = Virtue & Vice Lounge, an upscale bar and lounge featuring specialty drinks and small plates. V2 = Virtue & Vice Lounge will be open to the public on a nightly basis unless occupied for a special event buyout. Primed with a highly experienced in-house event design team, The Venue Las Vegas can customize and execute creatively themed special events of any size.
Founded by Owner and visionary Victor Perrillo, The Venue Las Vegas will add 200 jobs to the burgeoning downtown area, at a time when it is experiencing tremendous growth and economic upturn. “I’ve wanted to expand to Las Vegas for many years, and purchased this land eight years ago,” said Perrillo. “I waited to build our second location until the time was right. With recent investments the community has made to revitalize downtown, we felt that this year was the perfect time to develop The Venue Las Vegas.”
“We’ve noticed there was a real need for this type of mixed use special event facility in downtown Las Vegas,” added David Twigger, Vice President of The Venue Las Vegas and The Venue Scottsdale. “We began to feel a strong sense of community pride and a commitment to make downtown a success, and we wanted to be a part of it.”
