For an Out-of-the Box Event, You Have to Get “Out of the Box”
How non-traditional venues can make your next Vegas event truly fabulous!
In the hospitality business, it’s all about “location, location, location.” But, the same can be said about event venues: “Ballrooms, ballrooms, ballrooms.”
Whether you’re at the Comfy Cozy Suites, Mini-Mart and Truck Stop in Las Vegas, New Mexico, or at one of the mega-gigantic resort hotels on the Las Vegas Strip, you can bet that they both have one thing in common: a ballroom.
The typical hotel ballroom, no matter how swanky or sublime, is really nothing more than a big box consisting of four walls, a ceiling, lighting, and carpeting. Of course, some are much nicer than others. They all perform the same function as a place to shove a bunch of people for an event. These “dime a dozen” spaces are not very inspiring if you’re looking for a truly memorable and unique place that will make your event more fabulous than you can ever imagine.
Here at Destination Fabulous DMC, we are true believers in out-of-the-box thinking when it comes to Las Vegas event planning. Literally. By this we mean actually getting out of those confining four ballroom walls and expanding your horizons by considering some non-traditional event venues, which abound here in the Entertainment Capital of the World. We call this unique approach “SiteConcierge™.” You’ll call it “amazing!”
We recently came across an article in Vegas Seven Magazine called “The Tastemaker Awards,” which polled 100 Las Vegas “tastemakers” from the nightlife, spirits, culinary, and fashion industries on their top places to party, in this 24-hour party town. It serves as inspiration for booking unconventional event venue space that takes that boring boxy ballroom and blows it to smithereens.
Here are just some of the many unique, non-traditional venues and private dining rooms (PDRs) you can book directly through Destination Fabulous:
Best Pre-Party Vibe Dining – STK at the Cosmopolitan is “not your (Sugar) Daddy’s steakhouse,” (or maybe it is) with a DJ to get the beats going, and a fresh modern menu from Chef Stephen Hopcraft. It’s the perfect venue for an intimate affair or group dinner event.
Best Resident DJs and Bottle Presentations – Hakkasan at the MGM shines with DJ heavyweights like Calvin Harris, Tiesto, Steve Aoki, and Afrojack, plus unique bottle presentations that include light shows and marching bands if you want ‘em. You can book Grammy winner Calvin Harris, the #1 DJ in the world, directly through our XtremeEnterainment™ talent acquisition service for the ultimate in an SRO corporate or private event.
Best Outdoor Venue – The Ultrapool at XS at the Wynn/Encore is THE place for gathering under the stars and is available for a private buyout through Destination Fabulous. It’s where you can get “wet ‘n wild” in Vegas without the super soakers and water slides.
Best Splurge Experience – If you really want to go “all in,” then how about making a grand entrance as I will at next year’s Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) by renting a helicopter and obtaining EDC tickets through Destination Fabulous. It will transport you and six of your friends to and from the event in just 15 minutes while enjoying spectacular views of the Strip. Why be a part of the crowd, when you can soar above the crowd? Now that’s what we call getting high in complete ecstasy without the legal implications.
Best Private Dining Venue – Our own Director of Creative Services, Lauren Ashley, recently blogged about Celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis’ signature Italian restaurant atop The Cromwell that oozes continental sophistication and offers intoxicating views of The Strip. If you are looking for an unparalleled Las Vegas group event, this culinary gem can be privately booked through Destination Fabulous. We can even book Giada herself to welcome your group. Don’t forget, Giada is related to legendary Hollywood blockbuster producer Dino De Laurentiis. You’ll have to fight through the paparazzi to get to your pasta when you host a world premiere event in this remarkable venue. We’ll alert the media.
Best New Venue to Book – Let us help you be one of the first on the planet to book an exclusive VIP event at Omnia, the Hakkasan Group’s second Vegas nightspot scheduled to open soon at the former Pure nightclub at Caesars Palace. Omnia promises to be a totally different guest experience than their flagship Hakkasan nightclub at the MGM. Blending classic design with cutting-edge technology, this new Rockwell Group-designed entertainment venue is destined to transform the local club scene when it opens early next year.
