Tao at Venetian

Tao at the Venetian has been a mainstay on the Las Vegas nightlife circuit since 2005. The multi-functional entertainment venue encompasses 60,000 total square feet over three stories with a restaurant, lounge, nightclub, rooftop pool deck and banquet facilities.

Your entry to Tao is sure to be memorable as you walk past scantily clad women covered in flower petals and dancing in large bathtubs. The next thing you can’t help but notice is a twenty-foot Buddha greeting you as it seemingly hovers above an infinity pool filled with live Japanese Koi. The restaurant serves an Asian fusion menu that blends Japanese, Thai and Chinese culinary elements. The full menu and cocktail service are also available in the venue’s lounge.

The nightclub alone is 8,000 square feet with 1,500 square feet of that devoted to the dance floor. General admission guests have access to three full-service bars. VIP guests can choose from comfortable booth seating adjacent to the dance floor or one of eight luxurious Sky Boxes arranged on two levels. An outside terrace provides stunning views of the Strip lights.

EDM fans will want to hang out in the main room but with different types of music featured in others rooms, there is always something to please any musical taste. Multiple dance floors allow the crowd to spread out. Table service seating is also available in the Opium Room and Voyeur Lounge.

Tao Beach provides an additional 18,000 square feet of space for mixing and mingling under the stars. The pool area becomes an outdoor party lounge for the nightclub after dark. Four large fire columns and floating lanterns lend a cozy ambience to the space. A dozen luxury cabanas provide privacy for those who want to party away from the crowds.

The Tao entertainment complex is available for private events with flexible layout options to accommodate live entertainment of all kinds. Multiple areas are available for use separately or combined to handle special events of all sizes. Dinner, reception and buffet menus are prepared by the restaurant’s chefs.

Access to Tao is inside the Canal Shoppes at the Venetian. The nightclub has its own separate valet to save guests the walk through the casino from the main entrance.
