(Las Vegas) – Sambalatte, a Las Vegas-based, award-winning premier coffee restaurant, today announced the grand opening of its newest location, situated in a highly visible outdoor plaza at Monte Carlo on the Las Vegas Strip. The new restaurant, which officially opens May 1, will be the brand’s largest venue to-date and will feature its award-winning menu items and amenities. Sambalatte at Monte Carlo will exclusively feature a coffee bean roaster and a state-of-the-art coffee lab, providing “The Theater of Coffee,” so guests can enjoy watching the roasting process by the experts.
Sambalatte will be located Stripside at Monte Carlo as part of the resort’s transformation of its front entrance. The new plaza will feature an array of casual eateries, bars and restaurants in a social environment.
This year, Sambalatte will have created more than 40 new employment positions at this new location and its recently opened southwest restaurant at 6555 S. Jones and the 215 Beltway.
“This is a dream that I’ve focused on for more than 10 years,” said Sambalatte Founder and Owner Luiz Oliveira. “To expand Sambalatte has always been our vision, and to finally open a location on the Las Vegas Strip will expose our brand to visitors from all over the world.”
Patrick Miller, Monte Carlo’s General Manager, said, “As we watch the development at Monte Carlo take shape, we get more and more excited about what we will soon introduce to our guests. Sambalatte is a terrific addition to our amenities and we know that Las Vegas visitors will love this elevated coffee experience just as so many Las Vegas locals do.”
The new Sambalatte will offer guests 3,300 square feet of indoor space with the capacity to hold approximately 80 people. Outside will highlight a spacious patio that features a view of the Las Vegas Strip and a seating area for 100 people. All the familiar and delicious Sambalatte menu items will be available including coffee, savory sandwiches, salads, pastries, desserts, and a grab-and-go open food case. Other amenities include a state-of-the-art coffee lab featured behind a glass wall, a variety of unique brewing techniques and technology, flat-screen televisions, free Wi-Fi, multiple power source work stations and more.
For this new venture, Oliveira partnered again with Vanrooy Design, a Los Angeles firm that contracted the design of the Boca Park flagship Sambalatte, along with architecture firm Bunnyfish Studio and Las Vegas builder Shaw Lundquist. Known for being environmentally friendly, supporting local businesses and providing superior customer service, Sambalatte will continue to create a diverse social environment.
MGM Resorts International and renowned sports, entertainment and facilities powerhouse AEG are building a 20,000-seat indoor arena on land next to Monte Carlo. The arena, set to open in 2016, will be within walking distance from the new Sambalatte and will host major events, including boxing, MMA, concerts, award shows and family shows.
Founded in 2010 by Luiz Oliveira, Sambalatte is an upscale brand and caffè espresso lounges offering exclusive rich brews, delicious casual cuisine, and unique flavors served by highly trained baristas who create an ultimate experience. With an organic touch, comfortable atmosphere and extensive menu, Sambalatte has multiple southern Nevada locations offering an environment of complete sensory immersion, and has been awarded “Best Of” and recognized as the choice place in Las Vegas to “Sip, Savour and Socialize.” For more information, visit www.sambalatte.com of follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
