A restaurant opening before the end of the year at the Venetian is looking to hire 150 workers.

Public House, scheduled to open next month in the Grand Canal Shoppes, is staging a job fair Tuesday through Thursday to interview applicants for almost a dozen jobs, including server, host, bartender, manager, supervisor, sous chef, cook, pastry chef and dishwasher. Applications will be accepted from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Galileo Room 901 of the Venetian, and interviews will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Public House is the latest venture by Block 16 Hospitality, the Las Vegas company behind The Barrymore and Holsteins in the Cosmopolitan. The restaurant will feature upscale versions of traditional tavern fare, as well as several brands of whiskey and cognac, a wine tasting room and more than 24 beers on tap. The interior is designed to offer the feel of a Prohibition-era speakeasy and will feature natural wood and exposed kegs.

The eatery should not be confused with a second — and identically named — Public House opening on the Strip. That restaurant, scheduled to debut early next year in the Luxor, is the latest installment in a upscale pub chain with several East Coast locations.

  1. What dates will the job fair be on? If it was Tuesday through Thursday of *this* week then this story is not exactly what I would call helpful.

  2. The job fair is Tuesday through Thursday of next week, Nov. 8 to Nov. 10.

  3. Let's see, 150,000 unemployed in Clark County. One new restaurant hires 150. I have the solution, we need to open 1000 new restaurants. Problem solved.

  4. Which company forgot to fill out the trademark application? There's also a Social House in City Center, although it doesn't get any press. I can see the naming rights becoming a very confusing problem for all parties involved, esp w. social media and web domains. Personally, I would consider a name a little more interesting than 'Public House' if I want to be in business longer than 2 years.

  5. Two new restaurants both on the strip, both named "Public House" and both sound similar in what they serve, etc. Talk about a recipe for massive consumer confusion. If the one opening at Luxor is part of an existing chain, how the heck did the one at the Venetian get rights to the same name?? I trust 90% of visitors will assume it's two locations of the same restaurant... bad.
