LAVO is one of the many restaurants offered within The Venetian resort. The thing they’re most famous for — aside from the massive 1-pound meatball on the menu — is their Party Brunch experience! It’s one of the most fun times you’ll ever have at brunch.

Offering indulgent menus, a large selection of champagne, live chef stations, bottomless cocktails, and resident DJs, brunch at LAVO is unlike anything on the Las Vegas Strip.

Saturdays and Sundays are where it’s at. On Saturdays from October to March, you can partake in the famed LAVO Party Brunch where you can even dance on top of tables after your meal. Every Sunday, you can indulge in a bottomless Italian brunch experience with unlimited options and live chef stations.

Both of these weekly events are perfect for large groups and celebrations — LAVO is practically a staple for bachelorette parties in Vegas!
