Like a rift in the space-time continuum, the brand-new Venetian Cinemas transports its clientele simultaneously to the past and the future. With architecture that pays homage to the ancient Venetians and Romans, the façade beckons passersby with towering cast-stone columns, enticing them through the doors and into the lobby, where vaulted hallways and more columns with Corinthian capitals sweep them along to the auditoriums. Four screens engross the eyes and ears while more than 800 stuffed leather seats cradle the body, and cuisine from the cinemas' restaurant delights the remaining senses for a complete entertainment experience akin to the famous Roman-gladiator chili cook-offs.
In front of the viewers, granite countertops hold a service button that, when pressed, beckons servers to take orders from the menu. Substantial gourmet offerings such as pizza topped with fresh mozzarella or tacos dressed with green-chili-roasted pork top plates and ready stomachs for belly laughs. While still in their seats, their eyes drawn to the on-screen drama on the wall-to-wall curved screens and their ears bathed in the waves of a 40,000-watt sound system, viewers can order cocktails, microbrews, or margaritas from a fully stocked bar. After the movie, staff members clean up, letting patrons leave their glasses, plates, and ketchup-scrawled plot summaries behind.
Al-Amir Lebanese Restaurant and Club pairs sit-down dining with DJ-led dancing, creating an experience that's fun even beyond its well-loved dishes. From the menu, creamy hummus, stuffed grapes leaves, and meat pies are easily shareable with the whole table and showcase the chefs' use of rich flavors such as mint, oregano, sesame seeds, and garlic. They also skewer beef, chicken, shrimp, and veggies to create their signature fire-crisped kabobs. After dinner, guests can sidle over to the dance floor, where a DJ spins the latest hits and belly dancers often join in, swiveling their way around the room. On select nights, diners can learn how to salsa dance or write their life story in smoke rings from a hookah while the music plays.
