Description of sign(s)

1. Name: Rosewood Grill

2. Owner: Alan and Kevin LeWinter

3. Address: 3335 S. Las Vegas Blvd.

3b. Additional Site Details: The Rosewood Grill is between the Venetian Hotel-Casino and the Tam O'Shanter Motel on the east side of Las Vegas Blvd. The façade of the building is a plain, if not unassuming white stucco structure, with a driveway running along the north side of the building. Directly in front of the buildings western wall, along the strip, a tall pylon faces north /south

4. Condition: Structure 3 Surface 3 Lighting 3

Notes: See description

5. Form: plyon

6. Specfic Description: The pylon sign, which faces north/south, is the only signage notifying the pedestrian traffic of the establishment within. It is a tall vertical advertisement, mostly comprised of a vertical, rectangular shaped, internally lit cabinet, with rounded edges. The face of the sign is a plastic, graphically treated photo image of a man in a tuxedo holding up a giant lobster.

7. Type of Display: incandescent, backlit

8. Media: steel, plastic

9. Non-neon treatments: graphics,

10. Animation: chasing, flashing

Notes: The raceway, which runs the circumference of the faces of the sign, contains small strobes placed at random places, and flashing at random patterns.

11. Environment: The sign for the establishment is the only marker that anything is operational in the dimly lit building. Not that the building looks non operational, but the majority of the building is very unassuming, mostly being denoted by the large drive and entrance. It is located just south of the Tam O'Shanter motel, among the awkward transition of the strip, that is Spring Mountain Rd. The Vagabond Inn and the Treasure Island square off the end of the block before the desolate expanse of what used to be the Desert Inn, and the transforming Fashion Show Mall, sprawl out across the north side of the road. The Rosewood Grill is part of the side of the street that trails off in size, but not character as the giant Venetian slows its progress.
