The Artisan is a Las Vegas non-gaming hotel boutique and ultra-lounge. Its 64 rooms[1] are covered from floor to ceiling with eclectic art and reproductions of world famous paintings.[2]

History[edit]

The Artisan opened in 1979 as a Travelodge.[1] In December 2001, the property was purchased and renamed 'The Artisan'[1] and overhauled.[3] At that point, the Artisan started putting artwork from artists such as Cézanne, Chagall, Da Vinci, Rembrandt, Renoir, Van Gogh and others all over the property.[4][5][6][7]

The Artisan was featured on a 2007 episode of the A&E TV show Criss Angel Mindfreak[8] and multiple episodes of the Cinemax series Sin City Diaries.[9][10]

In 2008, Las Vegas Citylife magazine named the Artisan lounge as the best bar in Las Vegas.[11]

Even though the property got good reviews and had a loyal clientele,[12] the property faced cash flow and maintenance problems[13] and went into bankruptcy.[1] [14] The property agreed to foreclosure in December 2009.[15] The Siegel Group purchased the property in January 2010[16][17] and has been working to correct all outstanding issues.[18][19][1] In May 2010, The Artisan started having themed-invite only pool parties.[20]

On June 7, 2010, Kourtney Kardashian and boyfriend Scott Disick stayed at The Artisan to celebrate Disick's birthday.[21] [22]
