S Bar Las Vegas Partners with In The Moment Hospitality: Exciting Collaboration Unveiled


Working with the In the Moment Hospitality team, S Bar Las Vegas debuted a new programming scope which began on October 14. The new programming line-up includes engaging evening performances with a focus on creating a unique and immersive guest experience. 

As a complement to nightlife programming, S Bar Las Vegas and ITM launched this new collaborative series “Late Affair” on October 29th, featuring House of Leaves, a late-night psychedelic style art performance troupe paired with sultry beats and deep house from renowned DJs, with the official grand launch on November 5th, 2022. The House of Leaves troupe is well known for world-class DJ talent, show-stopping performances and roaming cast members interacting with guests to inject energy into the nightlife experience. 

The preview event on October 14th featured incredible performances and a guest DJ set by Esther Anaya, plus celebrity guests such as Peter Facinelli and Ross McCall, MMA Fighters, UFC Octagon girls like Brittney Palmer, and NFL star Shawne Merriman, among others. The evening featured libations by partner Remy Cointreau, with an exclusive Louis XIII Tasting for VIPS in the “Members Only” intimate lounge.

Rounding out the experience, S Bar guests will enjoy a continued commitment to elevated mixology, coupled with a decadent dinner and bites menu featuring shareable options. Popular cocktail offerings from the extensive menu include the Second Rodeo featuring a live flame presentation (Green Chile Vodka, Spiced Hibiscus, Lime, Rose Kombucha) and Blood Orange Basil (Gin, Blood Orange Juice, Basil). For the more engaging cocktail enthusiast, S Bar offers the extravagant Midas’ Manhattan ($80.00) — an impressive cocktail fit for a king, topped with gold and served with a luxurious surprise gift for the guest. The That’s What I Like cocktail offers unlimited strawberries and champagne for the duration of one’s visit and providing for the ultimate late-night offering. 

S Bar’s menu also features decadent, shareable bites such as Tuna Poke, Deviled Eggs, Cool Cucumber with Sesame, and Lobster Mac, as well as larger plates such as Steak Tartare, an assortment of Flatbreads, the Spicy Cigars (a signature favorite of Cleo restaurants), and a Chef’s Charcuterie Platter, complete with indulgent  desserts.

Commenting on the partnership, Nolan Lambertsen, sbe’s Vice President of Operations, Las Vegas said, 

“We look forward to bringing new energy to S Bar Las Vegas by aligning with the In The Moment team to bring sought after and elevated experiences to our Las Vegas guests. We are excited to launch this new partnership, providing expanded creativity to nightlife programming. We are thrilled for what is next!”
