LAS VEGAS, Nevada—Over a year ago, The Venetian Resort Las Vegas embarked on a billion-dollar reinvestment strategy that will impact the guest experience. The latest renovation is the transformation of the guest arrival experience to The Venetian Resort. Upon arrival, guests will enter Sala 118, a bar and lounge; a Starbucks; and an expanded concierge and luggage desk.
Patrick Nichols, president and CEO of The Venetian Resort Las Vegas. “These additions alongside the Grand Colonnade make The Venetian lobby more than an iconic photo spot, but a destination to be experienced throughout our guests’ stay.”
The majority of the lobby transformation is Sala 118, which has architectural focuses like arches and vaulted ceilings reminiscent of historic cathedrals. The menu, created by Andrew Pollard, director of mixology at The Venetian Resort, has cocktails presented in three chapters: aperitivo; negroni; and classic cocktails.
“I am passionate about Italian culture and spirits so it’s exciting to craft a new style of bar for Las Vegas,” said Pollard. “We want our guests to feel like they are in Italy with the right mood, beautiful architecture, flavorful drinks, and exquisite service.”
In addition to Sala 118, the lobby experience has a new Concierge desk, which provides guests with personalized recommendations. Starbucks sits alongside Sala 118. The coffeehouse gives guests a location to take in the Grand Colonnade.
