The hottest hotel and nightclub in Miami are coming to Sin City.
The iconic Fontainebleau brand has arrived on the Las Vegas Strip as Fontainebleau Las Vegas announces its global debut set for Dec. 13 pending regulatory approvals. The fulfillment of a long-held vision of Fontainebleau Development Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Soffer is in the final stages of construction and is now accepting reservations ahead of its grand opening.
“For almost 70 years, the Fontainebleau brand has challenged boundaries and expectations,” says Soffer. “With Fontainebleau Las Vegas, we have transcended aspiration and set the stage for a new era of luxury hospitality defined by innovation, sophistication, and opulence, with an inextricable link to our roots at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach. This building represents a remarkable new chapter in our storied legacy and will be a beacon for those seeking to indulge in the unforgettable.”
Seamlessly connecting the past, present, and future, the 67-story Fontainebleau Las Vegas—the tallest occupiable building in Nevada—is the first western expansion for the iconic brand. The resort, located on the northern end of the Strip on the site previously occupied by the El Rancho Hotel and Casino and the Algiers Hotel, boasts 3,644 rooms and suites featuring a color palette of blue and silver water tones and dashes of coral-pink, accented by mercury-glass mirrors and brass details.
In anticipation of its December opening, guests can book their inaugural stays at Fontainebleau Las Vegas via fontainebleaulasvegas.com.
As they plan their visits, guests can also get a glimpse at Fontainebleau Las Vegas’ 14,000-square-foot fitness center and 55,000-square-foot Lapis Spa designed by Milan-based Lissoni & Partners. Lapis Spa, arriving in Las Vegas from Fontainebleau Miami Beach, will redefine wellness with an approach that emphasizes personalization and community. The spa offers a full spectrum of wellness-enhancing facilities, including 44 treatment rooms; a purifying salt cave; a healing infrared sauna and invigorating event sauna; rejuvenating lounge areas; men’s and women’s hydrotherapy lounges as well as a co-ed sensory room with communal healing waters; and 11 luxurious suites offering exclusive spa experiences.

The website also offers an inside look at the 36 first-to-market restaurant concepts from around the globe opening in December 2023 and throughout 2024. The collection features ten of the Top 100 grossing restaurants in the United States and concepts from award-winning chefs and restaurateurs, including Chef Gabriela Cámara, Michelin-starred chefs Masa Ito and Kevin Kim, Alan Yau, Evan Funke, David Grutman and more. Standouts include world-renown restaurants Komodo and Papi Steak from Grutman’s Groot Hospitality.
Grutman will also bring Miami’s ultra-hot nightclub LIV to the property when it opens its doors to the world in December 2023, pending regulatory approvals. Since opening at Fontainebleau Miami Beach in 2008, the LIV brand has amplified a feeling of spontaneity and high-wattage sophistication in South Florida’s discerning nightlife scene. Within four years of its opening, LIV ranked among the top five highest-grossing clubs in America. Its success led to Grutman being recognized as one of the “50 Most Important People In EDM” by Rolling Stone magazine.
Additionally, Fontainebleau Las Vegas and Grutman will debut an all-new dayclub concept, LIV BEACH, in Spring 2024, just in time for pool season.
“Having worked closely with David Grutman and Groot Hospitality for many years, I will say they are second-to-none when it comes to executing on the core tenets of nightlife and hospitality,” says Soffer. “Our past collaborations have transformed LIV into a worldwide destination and have made Fontainebleau Miami Beach a haven for celebrities, and adventurous revelers, and I know the same to be true for David’s other properties with Groot Hospitality. David’s vision aligns with ours, and we look forward to building on our record of success by taking LIV, Komodo and Papi Steak to the next level at Fontainebleau Las Vegas.”
Additional resort amenities will include a 96,500-square-foot luxury boutique retail district, located on the first two levels of the resort, a six-acre pool district, 550,000-square-feet of customizable, indoor-outdoor meeting space and 150,000.
