They might have missed their promised spring debut date, but there's no mistaking the committed construction work effort at The Venue Las Vegas. Located across the street from the Container Park, the 36,000-square-foot, built-from-scratch event space is designed to host parties, meeting events, mitzvahs and weddings with room for up to 2,000 guests. Spread over three floors, revelers will have access to two "Bugsy" VIP lounges, a patio and a rooftop lounge.
They also also hope to engage with non-event guests via their two proposed venues. Featuring a separate Fremont Street entrance, VirtueVice lounge will be open to the public when not booked out by an event and will be styled in a mode described as "swanky." Renderings hint a long bar will hug the wall and the room will include a large, circular booth for communal seating.
On the opposite side of the building, The Comedy Spot is now confirmed to be on its way. Scheduled for a later, fall arrival, it will follow the model for The Venue's parent company comedy club in Scottsdale, Ariz. Since its 2002 debut, the Scottsdale venture has positioned itself as a "very affordable" entertainment venue and hosts open-mic nights and free "improv classes." It will also have its own, separate front entrance on Fremont.
Original plans to add a pizza lounge and a billiards room now appear to have been dropped. The Venue is working steadily for a summer debut, eight years after the developer first started work on the project.
