NEW YORK, May 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The ONE Group, the New York-based hospitality company, known for its high-energy dining venues, announces a partnership deal with the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas to open a sports-themed restaurant and lounge called "Heraea" (pronounced "ha-ray-uh"). The new venue will take-over the space currently occupied by Garduno's, and will offer great food, state-of-the-art sports viewing and energetic music in a chic space. The ONE Group intends to open Heraea at Palms Casino Resort by the end of 2012.
"We create sexy spaces that are all about great hospitality and having fun," said Celeste Fierro, Senior Vice President of The ONE Group. "Heraea will be a place for everyone to hang out, see a game, flirt and enjoy a great meal."
Joseph A. Maglairditi, President of Palms Casino Resort said, "We at Palms are very excited to join with The ONE Group to offer our guests a new and exciting take on the traditional sports bar. We think the vibe and location of Heraea will perfectly complement all of the other changes happening at Palms."
The new venue, located on the Palms' casino floor and adjacent to the famous Palms pool, will attract an eclectic mix of guests all drawn together by the attraction of watching sports while enjoying a top-notch dining experience. Heraea, consistent with all The ONE Group venues, will be designed to appeal equally to the female and male audience. In addition to the sports focus, an energetic music program will feature deejays spinning, as well as a back bar stage for special live performances.
"We are proud to partner with the Palms Casino Resort and look forward to opening this unique venue," said Jonathan Segal, CEO of The ONE Group. "The property is undergoing many changes and it is exciting to be a part of the process."
