Cipriani, the iconic Italian institution, is set to make its anticipated Las Vegas debut at Wynn Plaza at Wynn Las Vegas in November 2018. Following its expansion with restaurants across the globe, including New York, Dubai and the recently opened Cipriani Riyadh, Cipriani Las Vegas is the first location on the West Coast.
It all started in 1931 when Giuseppe Cipriani Sr. opened a quaint spot off a canal in Venice, Italy and called it Harry’s Bar. One family, four generations and over 85 years of history – the Cipriani name is synonymous with the type of cool glamour, service and classic Italian recipes that attract a very eclectic international clientele, all with one thing in common; they like to have a good time.
“With restaurants and locations around the world, we want to continue to preserve and introduce to new cities our family traditions and Italian cuisine paired with warm and attentive service,” said Giuseppe Cipriani, third-generation member of the Cipriani family. “Vegas is a very exciting and ever-changing destination that attracts many of our loyal customers but also new visitors and residents every year, both for business or leisure. We have been considering a Vegas project for a while, and this seems to be a perfect match as Wynn shares the same attention to detail, quality and service that we do.”
Designed by Florentine architect Michele Bonan, Cipriani Las Vegas will feature classic Cipriani design elements, including a nautical feel, glossy walnut and chrome accents and terrazzo floors in addition to color accents and lighting unique to the Las Vegas space.
The menu will include signature classics such as Carpaccio alla Cipriani, Baked Tagliolini with ham, and the sinfully delicious Vanilla Meringue. And for a true taste of Venice, the bar will serve the original Bellini, which was invented at legendary Harry’s Bar in Venice.

About Cipriani Las Vegas
Cipriani Las Vegas is set to open its doors in November 2018 inside of Wynn Las Vegas in the new Wynn Plaza. This will be the brand’s first venue on the West Coast.
The iconic brand’s roots date back to a kind act that took place in Venice by a humble bartender named Giuseppe Cipriani who loaned a tidy sum to a customer named Harry Pickering, cut off from his family fortune. Repaid for his generosity, Harry’s Bar was conceived in 1931 and its famously relaxed atmosphere, great food and warm service have catered to a very eclectic clientele that has included Hollywood legends, royalty, artists and people from all over the world throughout the years. Harry’s Bar was recognized in 2001 by the Italian Ministry of Cultural Arts as a national cultural landmark. It is the birthplace of ‘Carpaccio’ and the ‘Bellini’, a concoction of Prosecco and white peach purée, which was named after 15th-century Venetian painter, Giovanni Bellini.
In the 87 years since and with three generations of Cipriani family members leading the growth, Arrigo, Giuseppe and his sons Ignazio and Maggio, Cipriani has developed into an international hospitality brand with restaurants, landmarked event spaces, luxury residential, hotels and clubs around the world including Venice, New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Abu Dhabi, Hong Kong, Monte Carlo, Ibiza, Mexico City, Dubai and Riyadh. The timeless values of love for service, lack of imposition, quality of products and luxury in simplicity are still as important today as they were in 1931. Cipriani.com
