Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
Project Year

Family-owned Ellis Island Hotel, Casino and Brewery, has expanded its footprint and added a new attraction to island: The Front Yard. The long-awaiting beer garden is a two story indoor/outdoor venue with a premium bar and full-service restaurant.

The definitive highlight of the space is its impressive barrel-vaulted open ceiling that offers unobstructed views of the Las Vegas Strip. Working with KALB Industries, ShadeFX manufactured and installed twelve 18’x14’ arched motorized canopies to fit the over 3,000 sq. ft. ceiling.

For increased rain management, gutterspainted to match the structure, were added. Eight extra wings were included in each canopy for an extra sleek look and added strength in the windy location.

The new space, with a capacity of over 300, is open daily to guests. Customers can be treated to clear open skies and protected from the occasional showers, with the push of a button.
