Pure Management Group has announced its intention to convert Company Kitchen & Pub House at the Luxor in Las Vegas into Company Lounge, “a casual nightlife venue.”
This is the second such change for the 11,000 square-foot venue, which opened in November 2007 as Company American Bistro. Originally helmed by Chef Adam Sobel (formerly of Restaurant Guy Savoy, currently executive chef of RM Seafood), the über-chic, ski lodge-inspired venue’s opening celebrity investor lineup included such Hollywood luminaries as Nick Lachey, Nicky Hilton and Wilmer Valderrama. Following Chef Sobel’s March 2008 departure—as well as that of Top Chef’s foam-of-famer Marcel Vigneron—Company briefly shut down to transform into the more approachable, American tapas iteration.
A PMG representative reports that the Company Lounge schedule has cut back from the resto’s Wednesday through Sunday, 5 p.m.-late, to just “Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings.”
Nightlife and restaurant leader Pure Management Group (PMG) announced the promotion of Deborah Krause to Chief Operating Officer. Since joining PMG two and a half years ago, Deborah Krause has earned many honors as the company’s Executive Vice President overseeing Food & Beverage and Development and with this new appointment, Krause will now oversee all operations for PMG and its venues.
With more than 15 years of experience in developing and maintaining hotels, restaurants and nightlife destinations throughout the country, Krause has earned the respect of her peers in the Las Vegas community and beyond. Her efforts have led to many awards including the “American Express Gold Star” for service, an Epicurean Award, several “Best of Las Vegas” awards including “Best New Restaurant” (2004) and most notably the coveted “40 Under 40 Business Award” (2006) which honors Las Vegas’ top business executives – all under 40 years of age – who have changed the face of the city.
