Alain Ducasse to Debut Rivea and Skyfall Lounge at Delano Las Vegas
July 23, 2015
Rivea – inspired by the casual elegance of the Mediterranean coast – and Skyfall Lounge – a sophisticated nightlife concept – will sit high atop the stunning resort.
“Rivea will bring the soul of the French and Italian Rivieras to Las Vegas locals and visitors alike. Its comfortable, vibrant environment and seductive menu will make guests feel as though they’ve been transported to those endless summers in the South of France. And at the same time, it’s sparkling and relaxing, secret and select, chic and low-key,” said Ducasse.
Influenced by the delectable food markets of Provence and Italy, Alain Ducasse and Rivea Executive Chef Bruno Riou’s menu will focus on simple, fresh Mediterranean flavors made with the best West Coast-sourced seasonal ingredients. House-made pizzette, pastas and premium grill offerings with Mediterranean accents embody the nature of the Riviera. Signature dishes including Crispy Socca, a traditional cold cut board, Stuffed Baby Vegetables, an original Niçoise salad in a chickpea wrap, Gilt-head Bream with a minestrone reduction, and an outstanding Lemon Shortbread and Limoncello Sorbet dessert are designed to be shared, encouraging a lively social experience.
Aperitifs, a true Riviera staple, will prep palates for the meal ahead while sommeliers suggest a distinctive list of spirits or classic Italian cocktails. Dinner service will allow guests to select from a simple and easy-to-understand wine list made up of more than 300 wines from France, Italy and California. Traditional digestifs such as Grappa provide the ideal ending to the enchanting meal.
Having worked together on numerous restaurants and projects throughout the years, Ducasse invited Paris-based and acclaimed French-Canadian design duo Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku to create his new Las Vegas restaurant and lounge. With inspiration from Ducasse’s modern French-Italian Riviera menu offerings, Jouin and Manku will design the space with a palette of maritime blues and yellow accents synonymous with the laid-back vibe found on the coast. Cozy corners and sweeping mahogany banquettes inspired by the exquisite yachts in Venice will abound throughout the 200-seat dining room offering spaces for both large and intimate gatherings. Drawing upon the coastal climate, wooden Venetian blinds will line the windows and woven rattan lighting fixtures will hang throughout the space, while elegant striped fabrics and leather chairs bring a cozy touch to the contemporary feel of the room. A lighted “Wave Wall,” crafted by arranging hundreds of glass squares in a pattern mimicking the lapping motion of the Mediterranean Sea, will be a glistening focal point. The iconic, custom-designed glass chandelier composed of 15,000 hand-blown glass spheres made in Murano, Italy, will remain in the center of the dining room igniting visions of water drops pearling down from above.
A new 50-seat private dining room will astound guests with extraordinary views of The Strip through floor-to-ceiling windows. A majestic light fixture comprised of twinkling lights arranged to accurately represent the constellations found in Las Vegas’ night sky will serve as an exquisite enhancement to the gorgeous space. This intimate and secluded room will be available for hosting truly memorable occasions.
Skyfall Lounge, located adjacent to Rivea, will offer 180-degree views of the city along with an evolving nightlife experience that gradually increases in tempo as the night progresses. The warm and inviting space will make it possible for guests to sip a glass of Champagne while watching the desert sunset or to dance the night away as DJs spin upbeat house and dance music in the vibrant space from 10 p.m. to close.
The contemporary, theatre-style space, also designed by Jouin Manku, will offer multiple levels creating optimal views of the sparkling Vegas skyline from every seat in the room, while an expansive outdoor patio will offer a relaxing, fresh-air escape. Seating islands surrounding the centrally located dance floor create semi-private retreats for conversation and taking in unobstructed views of the Vegas skyline. The décor will simulate the beauty of an evening sunset with deep purple, red and honey-gold accents and subtle cloud forms hanging overhead.
Skyfall’s cocktail program will feature a list of handcrafted cocktails created with artisanal liquor and spirits from the United States as well as dynamic domestic craft beers and American wine selections. Elevated light fare from Rivea’s kitchen will include small crispy Tigelle sandwiches with cured ham, tomato and basil; and Squid Fritters with spicy pink dipping sauce will be available throughout the evening.
Hours of operation for Rivea will be 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Skyfall Lounge will be open 5 p.m. to midnight Sunday through Thursday and 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
