The Factory Kitchen Opens in Las Vegas December 2018

 

THE FACTORY KITCHEN OPENING IN LAS VEGAS

The popular Italian Trattoria in Downtown Los Angeles to open second location at

The Venetian® December 2018

 

FactoryPlaceHospitalityGroup and The Venetian Las Vegas announce plans to open The Factory Kitchen at The Venetian, opening December 2018.

“I am very excited and extremely thankful to The Venetian and Las Vegas Sands Corp. for the opportunity to open our first Las Vegas restaurant,” says Matteo Ferdinandi, CEO of FactoryPlaceHospitalityGroup.

The space, designed by Architect Thomas Schlesser of DESIGN BUREAUX, will be transformed into a vibrant 152-seat restaurant, filled with pops of The Factory Kitchen’s signature orange, forest green and rustic reclaimed wood tables. In contrast with the organic earth tones are industrial details: Touches of rose gold adorn the art deco-style light fixtures, cool concrete walls and plush grey banquettes line the perimeter of the restaurant. The façade will be interactive with the lively corridor that connects The Venetian and The Palazzo but will offer guests comfort and privacy.

The Factory Kitchen is the product of a long-standing friendship between Ferdinandi and Chef Angelo Auriana. Ferdinandi and Auriana share the vision of imparting their Italian roots and memories through food and hospitality. The original trattoria, serving traditional Italian recipes, opened its doors on Oct. 24, 2013, in The Arts District, Downtown Los Angeles. The Factory Kitchen takes its name from the street it’s located on and the former factory building complex that hosts it, but the restaurant’s soul is purely Italian.

In the kitchen, Chef Auriana prepares dishes using fresh, seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. The approachable menu at The Factory Kitchen highlights the simplicity of traditional local recipes. These recipes have been passed down from generation to generation within Italian families.

Beverage Director and Sommelier Francine Diamond-Ferdinandi has created a wine list which reflects the essence of their distinctive regions. Though Italian wines will be prevalent at The Factory Kitchen, additional wines from neighboring Western European countries and beyond are served.

The bar program highlights artisanal cocktails, which focus on texture, subtle acidity and simplicity, while illuminating the main spirit. The bar is approachable and the high-energy atmosphere fosters laughter and friendships—new and old.

The Factory Kitchen Las Vegas will be open for lunch and dinner when it debuts December 2018 in The Venetian.

WILLIE NELSON DELIVERS INCREDIBLE OPENING NIGHT OF WILLIE NELSON & FAMILY: VEGAS ON MY MIND TO A SOLD-OUT CROWD AT THE VENETIAN THEATRE, FEB. 1

Limited tickets to the remaining two shows are available at www.Venetian.com

American icon Willie Nelson took the stage for an incredible opening night of “Willie Nelson & Family: Vegas On My Mind” at The Venetian Theatre inside The Venetian® Las Vegas on Wednesday, Feb. 1.

 

The sold-out show began at 8 p.m. as Nelson and his band walked out into the spotlight and opened with legendary songs “Whiskey River,” “Still Is Still Moving to Me” and “Beer for My Horses” while eager fans cheered with excitement. Nelson was joined on stage by band members Mickey Raphael on the harmonica, older sister Bobbie Nelson on the piano, Robert Paul English on drums, Billy English on drums and acoustic guitar and Kevin Smith on electric bass.

 

Shortly after, Nelson welcomed his youngest daughter, Amy Nelson, on stage for a surprise performance as they sang “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die,” “Will the Circle Be Unbroken,” “I’ll Fly Away” and “I Saw the Light.” The crowd danced and sang along with the crooner as Nelson played on his famous guitar, Trigger.

 

During the performance, Nelson threw his bandana to one lucky fan and continued to interact with the crowd as he sang the classic ballad “Always On My Mind.”

 

At one point during the evening, Nelson addressed the audience and said, “Here’s one we haven’t ever done before on stage ever,” as he went on to perform “Still Not Dead Again Today” from his forthcoming album “God’s Problem Child.” Concertgoers roared as Nelson sang the opening lines, “I woke up still not dead again today, the internet said I had passed away.”

 

Nelson closed out the show with “Move It On Over” while thanking Las Vegas as the crowd stood up and cheered with excitement for the music legend.

 

The two remaining shows for “Willie Nelson & Family: Vegas on My Mind” take place at The Venetian Theatre on Friday, Feb. 3 and Saturday, Feb. 4. Limited tickets are on sale at www.Venetian.com.

The Venetian Las Vegas Debuts Coworking Lounge Powered by Zappos

THE VENETIAN LAS VEGAS DEBUTS COWORKING LOUNGE POWERED BY ZAPPOS

 Beginning January 2, 2017, The Venetian®, The Palazzo®, and Sands® Expo, in partnership with Zappos, will begin offering guests access to a first-of-its-kind coworking space in the heart of The Venetian | The Palazzo Congress Center.

The 1,170 square foot pop-up lounge will offer space to recharge, huddle areas for collaboration, and a conference room for small meetings. The space is enclosed for noise management, but is also transparent to invite guests to come inside and take advantage of the amenities. The furnishings are by Restoration Hardware, creating a relaxed and comfortable residential feel.

“Our coworking pop-up taps into a growing trend of creating collaborative workspaces that can be used on a temporary basis in addition to traditional offices. Placing a coworking space in the heart of a meetings and convention destination combines two concepts that you do not often see together,” said Lisa Marchese, chief marketing officer at The Venetian and The Palazzo. “We know this unexpected amenity, with its comfort and functionality will appeal to our guests and help them maximize their time while they are here for a meeting or convention.”

Amenities in the pop-up lounge include Wi-Fi, charging stations, four private phone rooms, and a private conference room that seats six.

“Coworking encourages the sharing of ideas and what better place to do that than in the middle of the largest meeting space in Las Vegas,” said Maggie Hsu, an advisor at Zappos. “Our team members will be staffing the lounge and will share the Zappos service philosophy of ‘delivering happiness’ with every ‘collision’ they make with a guest.”

The lounge, located on level two of The Venetian | The Palazzo Congress Center, will be open seven days a week from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Those hours are subject to change based on the needs and utilization of the Congress Center.

AEG Live Senior Vice President John Nelson fielded questions from students about the variety of rewarding jobs in production and promotion, including booking, marketing, artist management, and more.
 
Students met with The Moody Blues Tour Director Mark Hogue, Production Coordinator Karen Colvin, and Head Guitar Technician Chris Tropea, who shared their stories about breaking into the music industry and answered questions from those looking to do the same.
The Moody Blues – Justin Hayward (lead guitar, vocals), John Lodge (bass guitar, vocals) and Graeme Edge (drums) – appeared on stage for a special Q&A with the attending students. Highlights from the session include:
  • Student: “Who are your favorite musicians?”
  • John Lodge: “The ones I listened to growing up. The music that you listen to now will be with you for the rest of your life.”
  • Student: “How do you start a band?”
  • Graeme Edge: “Come together with friends who play instruments and you’ll start meeting other people who play instruments. Before you know it, you’re in a band.”
  • Student: “How do you pursue a career in music?”
  • Justin Hayward: “Follow your heart. If music is what you want to do, you have to pursue it and keep pursuing it.”
The Moody Blues have been at the forefront of the classic rock music scene since the ’60s with their multi-Platinum, Platinum, and Gold albums and singles hitting Billboard at #1, Top 5, Top 10, Top 20 and Top 40.

About SANTANA:
For forty years and as many albums later, Santana has sold more than 100 million records and reached more than 100 million fans at concerts worldwide. To date, Santana has won ten GRAMMY® Awards and three Latin GRAMMY® Awards. He won a record-tying nine GRAMMYs for a single project for 1999’s Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for “Smooth”) as well as three Latin GRAMMY’s. He has also received the Billboard Century Award (1996), was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1998), received the Billboard Latin Music Awards’ Lifetime Achievement honor (2009), and was the recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors Award (2013). Among many other honors, Carlos Santana has been cited by Rolling Stone as #15 on their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” And, with the 2014 release of Corazón, Santana surpassed the Rolling Stones and is one of only two music acts in Billboard history to score at least one Top Ten album for six consecutive decades from the 1960s on. April 15, 2016 marks the release date of Santana IV, the wildly anticipated studio album that reunites the revered early ’70s lineup of guitar icon Carlos Santana (guitar, vocals), Gregg Rolie (keyboards, lead vocals), Neal Schon (guitar, vocals), Michael Carabello (percussion) and Michael Shrieve (drums). Santana IV features 16 all-new tracks written and produced by the band that burst with the same unparalleled energy and superlative musicianship that made Santana a pioneering force in world music and a household name across the globe. Santana IV debuted at #5 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart and marks Santana’s fourteenth Top 10 album. Santana is currently headlining a multi-year residency at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas. In the fall of 2014, Carlos Santana released his memoir “The Universal Tone: Bringing My Story to Light.” It’s a profoundly inspiring tale of spiritual commitment and musical fearlessness that does not balk at finding the humor in the world of high-flying fame, nor at speaking plainly of Santana’s personal revelations, and the divine and infinite possibility he sees in each person he meets.
