Somehow, all at once, Tao nightclub brings not only a taste of the Orient but also a slice of the Big Apple to the Venetian resort, creating perhaps the ultimate nightlife destination in Las Vegas.

The 10,000-square-foot nightclub, modeled after the successful New York City club of the same name, is just one part – though a massive one – of the $20 million Tao entertainment complex, which also includes a restaurant, banquet facilities and ultra lounge, all located under the watchful eye of Tao’s signature 20-foot Buddha.
