Tao Las Vegas @ The Venetia
3355 Las Vegas Blvd. South
Las Vegas, NV 89109

The Scene
The creators of TAO Asian Bistro have now brought the renowned New York hotspot and celebrity hangout to The Venetian. Specializing in Hong Kong Chinese, Japanese and Thai cuisines, Chef Sam Hazen’s creations include everything from Kobe beef to traditional Peking Duck, all prepared by master chefs from across Asia.

At 42,000 square feet, TAO’s entertainment complex is among the largest in the world and features Las Vegas’ hippest nightclub, coolest ultra-lounge, largest banquet facility and of course, the hottest restaurant in town. This “Asian City’s” décor includes lush velvets and silks, waterfalls and century old woods and stones, and a hand-carved 20-foot-tall Buddha floating peacefully above an infinity pool complete with Japanese carp. – The Venetian

Like I said before, Nike always hosts one of the best events/parties, this was of course an amazing dinner and party. The ambience of Tao was just amazing, indeed one of the hottest restaurant/nightclub in town! I was surrounded by Asian décor and the food was amazing as well as presentation. It was great chatting up with Bobby Jones, his wife and Rodney at the table. If you’re in Las Vegas, this is a hotspot that you must go! I am definitely going to try out Tao NYC soon! The party was hot too, Nas and Ludacris performed for us, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James were just a few that were there. Thank you Nike for inviting Freshness and me to the dinner and party, it was hotness. Peep the meal and party pics after the jump…
