Yardbird Southern Table & Bar Las Vegas, NV

Glenn Rieder completed the construction of the Venetian Hotel & Casino’s Yardbird Southern Table & bar.  Completed in a remarkable 10-week period (from award to turnover), this original concept was developed by renowned restaurateur John Kunkel.  The critically acclaimed Yardbird Southern Table & Bar is a tribute to farm to table ingredients, Southern cooking, culture and hospitality.  It was named Best New Restaurant by both the James Beard Foundation and Bon Appetit Magazine.

Our partners on the project included Moser Architecture Studio (architect), Parts & Labor Design (designer), Williams General Contracting (general contractor) and the Venetian Hotel & Casino (owner/developer).

Covering nearly every elevation and ceiling surface, Glenn Rieder incorporated custom rustic millwork features throughout the restaurant.  The craftsmanship of this project is remarkable as you can observe wall and ceiling planking and custom millwork prevailing in the bars, casework, doors and sliding barn style front systems.  Architectural glass and complex metals, including blackened steel countertops, were utilized in the banquette seating and simulated beam rafters.

The Yarbird Southern Table & Bar marked our first project with the Venetian Hotel & Casino.  It was an incredible project and we were grateful to work with such a wonderful group of partners.
