From the very beginning, The Smith Center was envisioned as a world-class performing arts center that would develop and present the best and brightest in a broad range of first-rate programming and unite the residents of our community. A collection of venues that could both host the world’s finest performances from Broadway shows to world-class concerts, and support and encourage local artists. We wanted to bring the fine art of the world to Downtown Las Vegas, and bring the art of Downtown to the world. Our vision of a world-class arts center has come true, and we have the art-loving community of Downtown Las Vegas to thank for it.
Designed to be the centerpiece of downtown Las Vegas, The Smith Center for the Performing Arts is a world-class performing arts center capable of hosting nearly any event you have in mind, from dance recitals to corporate meetings to memorable weddings. We offer a variety of venues to fit your event’s needs. The center was designed by world-renowned architect David M. Schwarz and crafted out of pristine Indiana limestone. Each theater was then meticulously designed by expert consultants Fisher Dachs Associates and acoustician firm Akustiks to provide unparalleled sound and sight lines. There is truly no other venue in Las Vegas that offers the same grandeur and breathtaking beauty as The Smith Center.
