Ground was broken last week on the Venue Las Vegas, an event and entertainment facility set to open in February 2015 in the Fremont East district of downtown Las Vegas. Plans call for 36,000 square feet of event space as well as a bar and lounge open to the public. The facility is the second outpost for the team behind the Venue Scottsdale, which has hosted special events, performances, conventions and trade shows in Arizona since 2006. The new building will offer two stories and a rooftop patio, including six indoor and outdoor party spaces that will accommodate 30 to 2,000 attendees. Other features include a built-in stage and entertainment hall with full audio and lighting production, on-site catering, private rooms, and a VIP and billiards area. The bar and lounge will be available for buyouts.
