The evolution of Las Vegas nightlife takes an exciting culinary turn with the Dec. 28 opening of Andrea’s, a unique new dining concept in Encore at Wynn Las Vegas. The restaurant debuts an alluring style of “vibe dining”, combining a restaurant and nightlife experience into one environment. The addition of Andrea’s will complete the expansive Encore Beach Club and Surrender Nightclub entertainment complex, becoming the first Wynn Las Vegas restaurant to be fully integrated into a nightclub.
“We are delighted to add another distinctive concept to our collection of dining experiences,” said Marilyn Spiegel, president of Wynn Las Vegas and Encore. “Andrea's will launch a new era in nightlife with a combination of culinary excellence, legendary Wynn design and the energy of Surrender Nightclub.”
Steve Wynn, Chairman and CEO of Wynn Resorts Limited, has tapped nightlife visionary Sean Christie as managing partner. Christie’s Las Vegas Nightlife Group operates Encore Beach Club, Surrender Nightclub and Society Café Encore. “Andrea’s will seamlessly integrate into the Surrender space and experience,” said Christie. “It fills a need by catering to the resort’s significant nightlife clientele, delivering the same high level of Wynn Las Vegas standards for food, atmosphere and service.” Whether dining before, after, or in lieu of a nightlife experience at Surrender, XS or Tryst nightclubs at Wynn Las Vegas, diners can expect a sensory immersion of exotic Asian-inspired flavors, imaginative cocktails, high-end service and mood enhancing sounds set in a sexy atmosphere.
Enclosed from view of the casino floor, the 6,194-square-foot restaurant will feature a spacious and inviting lounge conducive to socializing, a step-up dining area designed for diners to see and be seen, hexagon tables for larger groups, intimate private dining enclaves, and a 2,100-square-foot terrace overlooking Surrender Nightclub’s panoramic outdoor space.
Setting the vibe is world-renowned Wynn Las Vegas resident DJ Steve Angello, of Swedish House Mafia fame, who will direct Andrea’s music program as Musical Chef. Angello will produce exclusive music mixes that are enhanced by the restaurant’s state-of-the-art audio and lighting system designed by award-winning John Lyons Systems. Top resident DJs will also spin sets after 11 p.m. as the lounge fully transitions into Surrender Nightclub.
Seating 155 in the dining room, Andrea’s will embrace a contemporary style of dining that is more fluid and less formatted than the traditional three-course model. From Andrea’s exhibition kitchen will come a steady stream of Asian cuisine -- from sizzling platters of expertly prepared meats, seafood and noodles, to sushi and dim sum. The sharable dishes can be enjoyed with sublime cocktails, many named after the resort’s world-famous resident DJs.
Andrea’s will be open 7 nights a week from 5 p.m. until 2 a.m.
