The after-party was celebrated at LAVO Nightclub at The Palazzo, a fitting location as Palminteri has been spotted there numerous times in the past few weeks, including twice this week already. The celebrity guests and show attendees enjoyed Italian specialties from LAVO’s kitchen along with signature cocktails while congratulating Palminteri on his performance. Palminteri was seen enjoying one of his favorite LAVO dishes, Chicken Marsala, while drinking tea with honey to soothe his voice after commanding the state for 90 minutes.

As the nightclub opened to the public many of the guests stayed to enjoy Label Junkie Wednesday at LAVO with sounds by DJ Crooked. Famed Dutch DJ Tiesto was spotted in the nightclub drinking Belvedere cocktails and Moet Rose.

About A Bronx Tale
A BRONX TALE is a funny and touching memoir written by and starring Chazz Palminteri. In the celebrated play on which he based the legendary movie, directed by and co-starring Robert De Niro, Palminteri brings 18 characters to life while vividly depicting a young boy’s rough childhood in the 1960’s-era Bronx and the unforgettable people he encountered. A classic coming-of-age story about reaching your true potential and trusting your heart, A BRONX TALE is directed by four-time Tony Award-winner Jerry Zaks and produced by Las Vegans Trent Othick, Matt Othick and Jason Gaughan. The show runs thru Oct. 18 (dark 13 and 14). Tickets start at $46 and can be purchased online at www.venetian.com or by phone 702.414.9000.
