Nov 27, 2007 4:38 AM

Presenting the newest hotel on the Las Vegas Strip in nearly three years, Las Vegas Sands has announced that The Palazzo Las Vegas — the lavish resort under development adjacent to the Venetian Resort-Hotel-Casino — will soft-open on December 20 followed by a series of grand opening celebratory events, January 17-19.

According to Palazzo President Rob Goldstein, the property will feature unparalleled luxury, sophistication, and contemporary chic on the Las Vegas Strip.

"In The Palazzo Las Vegas, our vision was to develop a property of elevated luxury in Las Vegas," said Goldstein. "We’re balancing sophisticated design and decor and luxurious experiences with some of the simple comforts of home to cater to the preferences of the most discerning traveler."

Goldstein adds The Palazzo will feature modern European ambience and designs reminiscent of Italian affluent living executed through a combination of premium amenities that include: spacious suites; restaurants by top celebrity chefs such as Wolfgang Puck, Emeril Lagasse, Mario Batali and Charlie Trotter; entertainment with the Tony Award-winning musical Jersey Boys and 40/40 Club, a Las Vegas version of New York’s dynamic sports bar and lounge; The Shoppes at The Palazzo featuring upscale boutiques anchored by Las Vegas’ first-ever Barneys New York; and the largest Canyon Ranch Spa to date.

During the grand opening weekend in January, invited guests and celebrities will be welcomed to The Palazzo for an event on the evening of Thursday, January 17. The Shoppes at The Palazzo will open their doors January 18.

Celebrations will culminate with a concert featuring a variety of international performers on January 19. Tickets for the concert will be available to the public for purchase with details to be released later this month.

All-Suite Accommodations

Every room in The Palazzo is a suite, each of which is specifically fashioned with comfort and convenience in mind. A sunken living room decorated with a modern European design, marble-appointed baths with oversized bath sheets, luxurious Egyptian linens from Anichini and remote-control Roman shades and curtains with first-of-its-kind ”˜touch control’ technology are a few of the in-suite features.

Fine Dining

The Palazzo will be home to more than a dozen restaurants, offering a variety of cuisines from a collection of award-winning chefs. The new restaurants include CarneVino by Mario Batali, CUT by Wolfgang Puck, Table 10 by Emeril Lagasse, Restaurant Charlie by Charlie Trotter, as well as Dos Caminos, Grand Lux Cafe, Jade, Mainland, Morels French Steakhouse & Bistro, Prime Blue Grill, SUSHISAMBA, Wildwood BBQ, and Woo Asian cuisine.

The Shoppes at The Palazzo

Anchored by a flagship, 85,000-square-foot Barneys New York, The Shoppes at The Palazzo will present more than 60 luxury boutiques. In addition to Barneys New York, 20 stores and luxury brands are making their Las Vegas debut at The Palazzo. They include Chloe, Tory Burch, Christian Louboutin, Diane Von Furstenberg, Van Cleef & Arpels, Catherine Malandrino, Anya Hindmarch, and Michael Kors.

These new additions to the Las Vegas Strip will be joined by the likes of Ralph Lauren, Jimmy Choo, Piaget, Burberry, Ferragamo, Fendi, Bottega Veneta and Montblanc to present one of the most upscale retail destinations under one roof in the United States.

Jersey Boys and more

In the spring of 2008, Broadway smash-hit Jersey Boys will take residence at The Palazzo in a new 1,800-seat theater. Jersey Boys will be joined by the 40/40 Club, the sports bar and lounge founded by music impresario Jay-Z, a unique Lamborghini showroom, gift store and cafe, as well as additional entertainment offerings that will be announced shortly and should be ready in early 2008.

Overall, The Palazzo — when coupled with the neighboring Venetian and Sands Expo and Convention Center — will give the company the largest hotel and convention complex in the world. The hotel tower will include 3,000 all-suite rooms with its new shopping, dining and entertainment venues located on two luxurious levels.

The 450,000-square-foot retail space, The Shoppes at The Palazzo will be connected to The Venetian via The Grand Canal Shoppes. It will house approximately 60 high-end and mid-level stores from the most recognizable brands to the hottest newcomers and unique one-of-a-kind boutiques drawn from all over the world. Additionally, The Palazzo will offer 14 new restaurants from renowned chefs, many of whom are not yet featured in Las Vegas.
