Fashion Show and Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian | the Palazzo Excite With Only-in-Vegas Entertainment!

March 27, 2014 Destination North America No Comments Email Email

When the rich, famous, and devastatingly beautiful let loose in Las Vegas, they all gravitate to one place: TAO Nightclub. Located inside the Grand Canal Shoppes, the venue is known around the world as one of the hottest nightclubs on the Las Vegas Strip.

With 44,000 square feet of space spread out between two main rooms, three full-service bars, eight private skyboxes, countless beautiful dancers, and some of the most infectious dance music that the world has to offer, TAO Nightclub has all the makings of an unforgettable night in Sin City.152588_num458274_168x168

The center is also home to “Streetmosphere” performances presented by an international roster of classically trained singers, actors and musicians who bring the cobblestone walkways of Venice to life.  Daily performances in St. Mark’s Square add an unexpected element of entertainment to the shopping and dining experience and further embellish the center’s unique, vibrant atmosphere.  Living Statues amaze guests with their immovable poses, while Artiste del Arte, a troupe of talented musicians, wander the center’s cobbled streets, serenading guests beneath a colorful alfresco sky.

After a full day of shopping, visitors can relax, take in the beautiful Venetian architecture and enjoy a true one-of-a-kind experience floating down the Grand Canal in an Italian gondola while being serenaded by a friendly, singing gondolier. The quarter-mile-long canal winds throughout the shopping center to create  a memorable experience enjoyed by visitors of all ages. If waking up before noon isn’t your style, enjoy a night cap and some late-night Brazilian fun at SUSHISAMBA. Evening excitement continues to sizzle into the wee hours of the morning at LAVO and TAO Asian Bistro & Nightclub – the place to be and be seen after hours.

Across the street at Fashion Show, the retail powerhouse brings fashion to life with weekend runway shows. Each weekend, fashion shows take place on the center’s runway in the Great Hall, a state-of-the-art special event venue that has been utilized by top designers including Alexander McQueen, Roberto Cavalli, Zac Posen, Donald Pliner, Red Carter and Perry Ellis.

Three days a week, five times a day, an eighty foot retractable runway and stage rises out of the floor for instant runway shows. Above the runway are three LED screens with advanced ligh152588_num458275_168x168ting features that drop from the ceiling to create a multi-dimensional experience.  State-of-the-art sound and special effect capabilities, such as snow and fog machines, further enhance the multi-sensory nature of this unique facility.

According to Janet LaFevre, senior marketing manager for Fashion Show and Grand Canal Shoppes, shoppers can sense something exciting is about to happen when the music is pulsing, lights are flashing, video is playing and the runway and stage box rise.  “More than 1,000 shows and events are produced in the Great Hall each year. It’s an experience offered only at Fashion Show in Las Vegas and nowhere else in the world.”
