KENWOOD (SONOMA VALLEY), Calif., Dec. 27 /CNW/ -- Kenwood Vineyards is
set to light up Las Vegas on December 30, 2007, when hip-hop mogul Jay-Z's
40/40 Club opens at The Palazzo, the spectacular new world-class resort on the
Las Vegas Strip. Kenwood Vineyards will sponsor the star-studded Grand Opening
gala at 40/40 Club Las Vegas that evening, an event that includes the debut of
the winery's namesake VIP room at the Club -- the Kenwood Vineyards Lounge.
The new $20 million 40/40 Club Las Vegas is the third location of Jay-Z's
renowned upscale sports bar and lounge, following in the footsteps of his
highly successful 40/40 Clubs in New York and Atlantic City. The multi-level
venue features 85 plasma screen televisions, five bars serving "top-shelf"
wines and libations, and leather couch seating for ultimate sports enjoyment,
plus a luxurious dining area offering all-American fare with a Latin accent
and five VIP rooms -- including the Kenwood Vineyards Lounge -- for private
The Kenwood Vineyards-sponsored 40/40 Club Las Vegas Grand Opening gala
will be an opulent affair. A throng of "A-List" celebrities will walk the red
carpet in front of fans and the press before heading inside for an evening to
include a welcome and ceremonial ribbon-cutting by Jay-Z, dancing to live
celebrity DJs and a midnight toast. A one-hour television special, "Live on
the Red Carpet at the 40/40 Club Las Vegas Grand Opening," is scheduled to air
on "Extra" and "E!".
The Kenwood Vineyards Lounge promises to be the most popular VIP room at
40/40 Club Las Vegas. Literally a "club within a club," the intimate Kenwood
Vineyards Lounge -- which can accommodate only 70 guests -- blends wine
country accents with leather wrap around couches, hardwood floors, wood
paneled walls, a sunken living room and an 8-foot pool table. This private
space also is equipped with two 65-inch plasma screen televisions, an
independent sound system, wireless internet access, Xbox, Playstation, chess
boards and a complementary Ms. Pacman arcade game. One of the Kenwood Vineyard
Lounge's most distinctive amenities is a private outdoor terrace, with views
of the famed Las Vegas Strip and the Las Vegas fireworks. Befitting a
private, "by reservation only" lounge, VIP servers assigned exclusively to the
Kenwood Vineyards Lounge will take care of guests' food and beverage needs. A
superb selection of premium Kenwood Vineyards Sonoma County wines will be
available in the Kenwood Vineyards Lounge by the glass and by the bottle.
The new club is located in The Palazzo, a 50-floor all-suites
hotel-casino-resort that takes Las Vegas luxury, sophistication and
contemporary chic to new heights. Situated adjacent to The Venetian and across
the street from the Wynn Las Vegas, the Palazzo is situated at the center of
Las Vegas excitement. The Palazzo is scheduled to open on December 20, 2007.
Established in 1970 in the Sonoma Valley, Kenwood Vineyards produces
premium wines that showcase Sonoma County's world class vineyards.
