Renowned Hospitality Entrepreneurs and Nightlife Moguls
Richard Chu and Cy Waits Announce
The “World’s Most Luxurious and Exclusive Nightlife Concept”
San Francisco (April 12, 2013) – Le VANTAGE Group, a luxury hospitality company committed to setting a new standard of nightlife, has introduced RÊVE Luxury Nightlife. RÊVE will fill a void by introducing a new dimension of worldly sophistication and high energy to the city’s scene, a venue commensurate with San Francisco’s standing as a world-class dining, shopping and cultural destination. A 6,000-square-foot luxury nightlife and hospitality venue, RÊVE will open along The Embarcadero in late summer 2013.
“We are thrilled to introduce RÊVE as the world’s most lavish, luxurious and exclusive nightlife concept,” said Chu, co-founder of Le VANTAGE Group and owner of RÊVE. “RÊVE was conceived in response to demands by some of our most high-profile Bay Area clients, and has been custom designed to integrate into San Francisco’s illustrious cosmopolitan character and become its most exciting new destination.”
An integral force in Las Vegas nightlife operations for more than a decade, Chu teamed with Cy Waits in 2011 with the goal of reinvigorating San Francisco nightlife. Waits, managing partner at RÊVE, is recognized as one of the world’s most successful pioneers of global nightlife, having created and operated the highest grossing nightclubs and restaurants in the world, including XS, Tryst and Drai’s of Las Vegas. Together, the duo intends to create an unparalleled nightlife destination in San Francisco, combining unsurpassed customer service and upscale amenities with world-renowned DJs and a cutting-edge sound system.
“We are firm believers in the importance of nightlife as a critical arena for personal and professional enjoyment and advancement,” noted Chu. “From SoMa’s tech-set, Silicon Valley’s venture capitalists and budding local artists to social mavens, politicians and celebrities, RÊVE will cater to the Bay Area’s top influencers, tastemakers and trendsetters by creating an unprecedented networking hotbed where high-power deals can be sealed and celebrated.”
Guests arriving at the RÊVE valet station will step onto a red carpet and into one of San Francisco’s most magnificent settings on the Embarcadero waterfront, with the famed Ferry Building and iconic Bay Lights serving as a world-class backdrop. In every aspect, RÊVE will provide guests with the absolute highest level of service, including one Provocateur and one Captain per table, Rolls-Royce Phantom house cars, a state-of-the-art LED video wall, a million-dollar sound system, and distinctive design by AK Design Network. The venue will also offer premium Caviar Service and high-end large format Champagne bottles, with everything from magnums to jeroboams to an impressive $125,000 Melchizedek (30-liter).
Furthermore, RÊVE will uniquely employ hosts who serve as multi-talented concierges; not only will they book tables or events, they will have the keen business awareness to facilitate strategic introductions, keeping synergies in mind and connecting one table to another. RÊVE will maintain secure profiles of regular guests, noting preferences, interests and goals to customize the guest experience in an entirely new and beneficial manner.
“Our goal with RÊVE is to set the bar in exceptional service and entertainment to create a carefree atmosphere,” said Waits. “By achieving this, we are confident guests will experience evenings not soon forgotten without ever having to leave the city they love.”
Entry into RÊVE will be by way of an exclusive, invitation-only list on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings; all other timeframes will be reserved for corporate and social buy-outs. RÊVE will offer tiers of premium elevated seating comprising only 19 tables, including The Presidential, to provide an exclusive set of guests an unrivaled experience starting at $10,000.
RÊVE, located at 134 Embarcadero Drive, is set to open in late summer 2013. For more information, inquiries, and to be kept abreast of news, visit www.revesf.com and/or start following RÊVE at http://www.facebook.com/revenightlife, https://twitter.com/revesf.
