Marc Vetri’s Vetri Cucina debuted on Monday with its unobstructed views of the Las Vegas Strip from the dining room’s floor to ceiling windows on the 56th floor. The 80-seat restaurant features hand-blown Murano glass chandeliers and airwave glasses, marble countertops contrasted by dark wood accents, and exposed brick.
True to the huge renovation at the resort, artwork plays a role, with art pieces from world-renowned artists including Damien Hirst (Veil of Imagination), Andy Warhol (Flowers), and Philadelphia-born Timothy Curtis (20 Faces, Philadelphia Greatness).
But the super secret piece of art might be the most interesting, since diners have to hunt for it to find it. DabsMyla, the Australian husband-and-wife artist duo, painted their latest mural in an unexpected stairway at the restaurant, covering the multi-floored passageway with their colorful and whimsical pop-art paintings.
Diners can find it by departing Vetri Cucina through a stairwell to the 55th floor, home to Apex Social Club.
