THE YEAR OF THE MONKEY SWINGS INTO 
THE VENETIAN AND THE PALAZZO LAS VEGAS 
WITH A UNIQUE ART INSTALLATION AND 
CHINESE NEW YEAR ACTIVITIES
Venetian

The Venetian® and The Palazzo® Las Vegas will celebrate Chinese New Year in traditional style with an extravagant décor, entertainment, and food and beverage offerings. A ceremonial lion dance and eye ceremony will officially kick off Chinese New Year 2016 activities on Feb. 8, at3:00 p.m.

THE WATERFALL ATRIUM AND GARDENS TRANSFORM FOR CHINESE NEW YEAR

To commemorate the Year of the Monkey, The Venetian and The Palazzo’s floral and horticulture team worked with a team of artisans and consulted a Feng Shui master to create the massive Chinese New Year display.

“To create the most stunning display for our guests, we begin the planning process a year in advance,” said Dana Beatty, director of floral and horticulture at The Venetian and The Palazzo. “Chinese New Year is very special to our guests so we took into account specifics to bring luck and make this display a spectacle our guests will never forget.”

Throughout The Venetian and The Palazzo, guests will find 78 handcrafted monkeys, each with a unique, hand-painted face. The main feature of the display is the five-foot tall, 300-pound Monkey King seated at the base of the 38-foot-tall wishing tree. His chest plate is made up of more than 8,000 hand-sewn gold coins and he is draped in Swarovski crystals. Among the wishing tree’s 8,000 branches of golden foliage are 28 young and somewhat mischievous monkeys. The number 28 is an auspicious number in Chinese culture, representing “easy fortune.” There are also eight giant, hand-painted peaches covered in Swarovski crystals. The monkeys that are extending a peach are wishing guests a long life.

The display also features:

  • 88 gold and red six-foot lanterns that are suspended over the walkways of the Waterfall Atrium and Gardens
  • More than 1,000 blooming flowers including golden Phalaenopsis, cymbidium orchids, chrysanthemums, and Oriental lilies
  • More than 1,200 plants including phormium grasses, philodendrum, Ogon grass, tangerine trees, lucky bamboo trees, ivy, ferns, and cast-iron plants

EYE CEREMONY AND LION DANCE CELEBRATION ON FEB. 8

An important ritual of Chinese culture symbolizing good luck and prosperity, the lion dance will officially kick off the Chinese New Year celebrations at The Venetian and The Palazzo on Feb. 8 at 3:00 p.m. The ceremonial lion dance will begin with an eye ceremony at The Venetian porte cochere. The dance will wind its way through The Venetian lobby and casino before stopping in The Palazzo Waterfall Atrium, then finding its way through The Palazzo casino, lobby, and ending at The Palazzo porte cochere. This exciting event features firecrackers, and a parade of dancers and drummers in authentic clothing.

HACKEN LEE AND JOEY YUNG LIVE IN LAS VEGAS

ONE DIRECTION ARRIVE AT MADAME TUSSAUDS LAS VEGAS
AS PART OF THEIR “WORLD TOUR”

Sensational British Boy Band Now on Display through February 2016

Wax figures of the award-winning pop group, One Direction, are now on display at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas through February 2016 as part of their “world tour.” All five original members of 1D will be featured at the attraction, including Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and recently departed member, Zayn Malik. The pop stars are featured sitting on bleachers with plenty of room for fans to cozy up to the figures for the perfect photo opp.

First launched in London in 2013, the One Direction figures were created in close collaboration with the band. Over the course of two sittings, 40 talented studio artists worked to take hundreds of precise measurements, examined their skin tones, matched their eye colors and tested hair swatches to ensure accuracy. The stars’ personal hairstylist then added the final touches to the boys’ stylish strands. Dressed in clothes donated by the singers themselves, the figures are adorned in their signature smart-casual stage style. The band members were notably stunned by the likeness of their figures. The figure creation took four months to complete and the cost for each figure totaled approximately $300,000.

One Direction launched to super-stardom in 2010 after appearing on televised British singing competition, The X Factor. The chart-topping band has consistently been one of the most requested figure creations by Madame Tussauds’ guests.

“We’re just kind of a bit overwhelmed. We’ve been to Madame Tussauds and seen the kind of people who are in there. It’s crazy to think that we will be up there with them,” commented Harry Styles.

Niall Horan was similarly elated, stating, “We were super excited to find out that they were making us and that people felt we were worthy of a figure.”

Madame Tussauds Las Vegas Announces 1st Figures for 2016: Donny & Marie

madame tussuds

MADAME TUSSAUDS LAS VEGAS TO LAUNCH DONNY & MARIE
WAX FIGURES IN 2016

 Madame Tussauds Las Vegas will immortalize world-renowned musical performers Donny & Marie in 2016. The attraction is announcing today they will be the first new figures in the new year.

The brother and sister duo have been involved since the inception of the figures. Their sitting took more than three hours per person with the studio team taking approximately 300 measurements. Now this step is complete, their measurements have been used to be sculpt their figures in clay by hand, then covered in a plaster cast. The clay was removed from the casts and poured in and allowed to cool. The next few weeks will be spent meticulously inserting each hair by hand, which is customary for Madame Tussauds’ studio team. Finally, the figures will be fitted with acrylic eyes and teeth, while countless layers of tinted paint will be applied to build up skin tones and replicate their faces.

Photos from the sittings will be released in early November.

Madame Tussauds Debuts World’s 1st Bruno Mars Wax Figure in Las Vegas

madame tussuds

 

MADAME

MADAME TUSSAUDS UNVEILS WORLD’S FIRST BRUNO MARS
WAX FIGURE IN LAS VEGAS

 

 International pop superstar Bruno Mars has been immortalized in wax at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas to celebrate his 30th birthday. The “Uptown Funk” star will be on display starting this Thursday, Oct. 8 inside the “Music Room,” which is home to fellow music maestros ranging from Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj to Stevie Wonder.

Bruno Mars is an 18-time Grammy Award nominee and multi-Grammy winner. At the top of 2014, Mars made NFL history with the most watched Super Bowl Halftime Show that amassed a record breaking 115.3 million viewers, all while being the youngest artist ever to serve as the sole NFL Super Bowl Halftime headliner. The critically-acclaimed singer, songwriter, producer and musician has sold more than 130 million singles worldwide and was named Billboard’s 2013 “Artist of the Year.” His most recent album, “Unorthodox Jukebox” and his debut album “Doo-Wops & Hooligans” have a combined certification total of 94x Platinum worldwide. According to Billboard, Mars scored his first five “Hot 100” No. 1s faster than any male since Elvis Presley.  Mars most recently teamed up with Mark Ronson on the smash hit “Uptown Funk.” The international hit single is the longest-leading Billboard Hot 100 of the 2010s and is the 10th single in the Hot 100’s 57-year history to spend at least 14 weeks at Number 1.

Looking at home in front of a keyboard, Mars’ figure was created by Madame Tussauds’ studio team taking 20 dedicated artists nearly six months to complete. The figure was first sculpted in clay by hand then covered in a plaster cast. Once the clay was removed from the cast, the wax was poured in and allowed to cool. Nearly six weeks were spent meticulously inserting each hair by hand which is customary for Madame Tussauds’ studio team. Finally, the figure was fitted with acrylic eyes and teeth, while countless layers of tinted paint were applied to build up skin tones – all to achieve the astonishingly lifelike figure styled to pay homage to Mars’ retro showmanship. Mars personally donated the royal blue jacket that his figure wears.

The Most Extraordinary Culinary Event Of The Year, Ultimo – A Weekend Of Excellence Returns To The Venetian And The Palazzo, Dec. 17-20

VENETIAN AND THE PALAZZO

THE MOST EXTRAORDINARY CULINARY EVENT OF THE YEAR,
ULTIMO – A WEEKEND OF EXCELLENCE
RETURNS TO THE VENETIAN AND THE PALAZZO, DEC. 17-20

venetian

The culinary event of the year Ultimo – A Weekend of Excellence,  hosted by The Venetian® and The Palazzo® Las Vegas, will take extravagance to new levels, Dec. 17-20.

For the third year in a row, Ultimo will celebrate the romance of Italy with lavish feasts and exceptional experiences from an A-team of award-winning chefs as it unfolds around The Venetian and The Palazzo Las Vegas.   Renowned culinary luminaries participating in the weekend will include Chefs Jérôme Bocuse, Daniel Boulud, Josiah Citrin, Shaun Hergatt, Gavin Kaysen, Thomas Keller, James Kent, Roland Passot, Philip Tessier, Ming Tsai, Richard Rosendale, and Dario Cecchini, the famed Chianti “Butcher of Panzano.”

“This will be, without a doubt, the most spectacular gathering of world-renowned chefs in Las Vegas,” said Sebastien Silvestri, vice president of food & beverage for The Venetian and The Palazzo.  “For the culinary enthusiast, this will be a weekend to remember.”

This exceptional winter weekend will feature the return of The Venetian’s Grand Banquet, a landmark collaboration between several of the world’s best culinarians including Chefs Keller, Tessier, Hergatt and Tsai.

The Grand Banquet, originally introduced in 2013, has become a signature Las Vegas culinary event, with its sumptuous setting on a spectacular table that spans the iconic Grand Colonnade of The Venetian. In its first year, Chef Mario Batali called it “the grandest meal ever served in Las Vegas.”

This year, Ultimo will kick off with a noteworthy Bocuse d’Or Team USA competition event, held in partnership with ment’or BKB Foundation, a nonprofit organization, founded by Chefs Daniel Boulud, Thomas Keller and Jérôme Bocuse, that aims to inspire excellence in young culinary professionals and preserve the traditions and quality of classic cuisine in America.  Bocuse d’Or is the world’s most prestigious culinary competition for young talented chefs.  At the event, one team will be chosen to represent the United States at the 2017 Bocuse d’Or biennial competition in Lyon, France.  This opportunity is especially noteworthy following the 2015 Silver medal showing of Team USA at the event.

“Each time an American team competes for the Bocuse d’Or, they honor and extend traditions older than themselves,” said Chef Thomas Keller, president of ment’or BKB Foundation, “The Bocuse d’or serves as a direct connection to culinary history and that’s why our participation matters.”

This phenomenal all-day event will usher in a fanciful winter weekend of decadent food by the world’s most celebrated chefs, in conjunction with Urbani Truffles, Southern Wine & Spirits, and Krug Champagne.

The Ultimo itinerary is rich. With a theme of Earth, Water, Air, and Fire, each of life’s elements will be celebrated during a once-in-a-lifetime meal experience.

The Venetian® and The Palazzo® Las Vegas are proudly joining restaurants, bars, and food trucks across the globe this June in support of the (RED) organization, which harnesses the power of people and companies to fight AIDS.

 

“We are excited to be part of this important cause that will save lives and bring awareness to AIDS,” said Sebastien Silvestri, vice president of food and beverage at The Venetian and The Palazzo. “We invite guests to come out and be a part of the (RED) movement that has raised over $300 million to date.”

 

Participating restaurant, bar, and lounge partners include B&B Burger and Beer, B&B Ristorante, Carnevino, db Brasserie, Morels French Steakhouse & Bistro, Otto Enoteca Pizzeria, SUSHISAMBA, Bellini Bar, Fusion Latin Mixology Bar, Laguna Champagne Bar, The Bourbon Room, and The Label.

According to (RED), today, it costs 40cents for two lifesaving pills that can help prevent HIV+ moms from passing the virus to their unborn babies. Still, 650 babies are born with HIV every day. The Venetian and The Palazzo will join the fight to turn 650 into ZERO.
