The Venues Group, a premier special event and entertainment facility group, celebrated the development of its downtown Las Vegas location with a ceremonial groundbreaking event on Aug. 7. Scheduled to open February 2015, architectural renderings boast 36,000 square feet of meeting and event space.
Executives from The Venue Scottsdale, including owner and founder Victor Perrillo and vice president David Twigger, along with City of Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman, commemorated The Venue Las Vegas with a press conference and VIP event.
Mayor Goodman expressed her eagerness to add the special event facility to the downtown area.
“We already have so much enthusiasm here. For The Venue to come here is great as we’ve always been shy of event and meeting space [in downtown Las Vegas],” said Mayor Goodman.
Since 2006, The Venue Scottsdale is one of the most upscale and high-profile locations in the greater Phoenix 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.
Founded by 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 Twigger. “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.”
The Venue Las Vegas will feature 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 from 30 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. 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.
V2 = Virtue & Vice Lounge, an upscale bar and lounge featuring specialty drinks and small plates, will be open to the public on a nightly basis unless occupied for a special event buyout.
