One of the really cool things about living in a world-famous tourist destination is that we can enjoy the same things without having to travel far. SLS Hotel brought in Tarek Benaoum from France to transform all the walls and ceilings in their Foxtail nightclub with calligraphy. These are large letters, french words, english words, all kinds of words written in place in every hand imaginable everywhere in this space. This is a calligrapher's dream. Not only is Foxtail covered in gorgeous letterforms, but there are several other places in the hotel also sporting calligraphy. If you come, check out the pillars by the steak house, the pizza restaurant, even the bathrooms! Many thanks to the Security Department and Mike who gave us the best tour we could have asked for and who also pointed out remnants of the former hotel, The Sahara, which was just as interesting to the members who have lived in Las Vegas for a while and remember The Sahara Hotel.
Share the love of calligraphy and related paper arts in Las Vegas with delight, commitment to excellence and a healthy dose of humor.
