To paraphrase their teaser website, "What do you do when you have already built one of the world's most luxurious, exciting and award winning resorts?"
Well, you build an even more gorgeous and luxurious resort right beside it on the Las Vegas Strip and call it....
The entire website showcasing all of the resort's amenities will be revealed with the opening of the resort tonight at 8:00 PM.
The resort features stunning decor that brings the outside in with large windows in the casino , even more luxurious suites (starting at 700 square feet), incredible new restaurants including "Sinatra", which is fine Italian dining and a labor of love between Steve Wynn and the Sinatra family. It features portraits, memorabilia and a personal soundtrack of music by "The Chairman of the Board".
Other restaurants include a steakhouse called "Botero Steakhouse" which will certainly be a most voluptuous dining experience set amongst the incredible work of artist Fernando Botero and another establishment called "Switch" that changes it's environment every 20 minutes for a true dining "experience".
The real "show" at "Encore" is their "XS Nightclub" (a play on the word "excess", I'm sure). It most certainly will exceed in off-the-hook luxuriousness for this club that is inspired by the style and ambience of St. Tropez. Of course, Wynn will do it in their own way and the party will start in the afternoon and flow into the wee hours of the morning. The club opens on New Years Eve.
Impressionist Danny Gans, who Steve Wynn introduced to the Mirage and made a Vegas star, is back with a whole new exciting show that will premiere in February, 2009.
From a personal perspective, my own experiences, and that of my family, when staying at a "Wynn" resort in the past was that we always felt "taken care of" and were truly treated as welcomed guests. On a professional level, as a wedding consultant, that "taken care of" experience at Wynn, Las Vegas is embodied in the professionalism and care extended to me and my clients by the wonderful staff at the resort. It is one of my favorite places to work in Las Vegas.
I am so excited to visit "Encore" this weekend and see all the gorgeous new venues in the Wynn Collection that will be perfect for celebrating your wedding in Las Vegas. From welcome parties to brunches, bachelorette and bachelor parties, spa and bridal beauty and stunning new ceremony and reception locations, "Encore" is going to, yet again, raise the bar on what it means to have a wedding or Destination Wedding celebration with Las Vegas "style"!
Check out some great images and video of the resort on the "Vegas Deluxe" blog of Robin Leach (yes, the "Champagne Wishes & Caviar Dreams" man himself).
Bravo, "Encore", welcome to the neighborhood and I would like to wish all of my friends at Wynn Weddings, Wynn Catering and Restaurant Events "congratulations". I am so excited for you and wish you all great success. I look forward to many fabulous and memorable weddings and events with you.
