Croce and his designer, Paul LaMorticella, have been to Las Vegas, New York and North Carolina purchasing unique furniture and fixtures for what's being described by Croce as "Vegas meets Buffalo".
"Traveling around the country to some of the finest clubs to try to bring a Las Vegas style nightclub right here to western New York and go over the top and do something nobody's ever done right here in buffalo," explains Croce. "Rendezvous is going to be a key integral part of Statler City."
Over 100 workers scramble to get everything set in place for tonight's opening. While the grand opening is set for sometime this December, the doors will be open a few times before then, to allow preview parties for the club.
