Sala 118, Starbucks and Newly Designed Spaces Set the Stage for a Memorable Stay

LAS VEGAS, NV (Dec. 20, 2023) – More than a year ago, The Venetian
Resort Las Vegas embarked on a billion-dollar reinvestment strategy that
will impact nearly every aspect of the guest experience. The latest
milestone is the transformation of the guest arrival experience to The
Venetian Resort. Guests will be immediately welcomed to Sala 118, an
exquisite bar and lounge that embraces the spirit of Italy, a
beautifully designed Starbucks, and an expanded Concierge and Luggage

“Entering The Venetian Resort – whether for the first time or the tenth
– sets the stage for the extraordinary,” said Patrick Nichols, president
and chief executive officer 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 crown jewel of the lobby transformation is Sala 118, with its nod to
Italian designs, the bar evokes the romance of the 118 islands of Venice
in an enchanting space with arches and vaulted ceilings reminiscent of
historic cathedrals. The rich warm colors, plush sofas, and banquettes
create a cozy home away from home.

The menu, thoughtfully created by Andrew Pollard, director of mixology
at The Venetian Resort, features well-known Italian cocktails presented
in three chapters: aperitivo – the Italian way to wind down and
stimulate the palate before dinner; negroni, with several variations
crafted with Sala 118’s own signature blend of vermouth and bitters,
which is poured from a whimsical lion fountain at the bar; and classic
cocktails featuring a modern twist, designed to capture the beauty and
simplicity of the beverage.

“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.”

Cocktail highlights include:
 ·       _Signature -_ Fords Gin, Sala Signature Bitter & Vermouth Blend

 ·       _Brando – _Rémy Martin 1738 Cognac, Amaro Montenegro, lemon,

and provides guests with tailored and personalized recommendations.
