Noted chef Todd English continued his highly praised Mediterranean menu in the Las Vegas version of Olives. Overlooking the Bellagio fountain show, the sleek and inviting restaurant was designed by Jeffrey Beers, International. Brad Oldham provided lights and several architectural elements for the Las Vegas Olives and for the Olives that opened three years later at The Beau Rivage Resort in Biloxi.

Brad Oldham designed and manufactured 4-foot bronze candelabra olive trees with electric candles that have become iconic in the restaurant’s environment. Each olive tree was hand-sculptured, cast and polished. Once the bronze work was complete, the sculpture was UL-lit for electric lighting. The hand-cast wax shades were cast in the studio to get the right color and exact size. Oldham worked with the project’s general contractor, the electrical contractor and the lighting architect to develop the shipping and installation strategies for the lights and other products for both restaurants.

Work performed included:
• Four 4-foot bronze-cast candelabra trees with electric candles (Las Vegas).
• 120-linear-feet of olive-pattern, hand-cast, faux-bronze ungulated sofit wall treatment. The designers originally asked for a flexible pressed-tin pattern, but tin was not flexible enough for the project needs, so Oldham created a custom wall treatment that looked like bronze. (Las Vegas)
• Cast resin pod grills (LED-lit) to top a custom room-divider (Biloxi)
• Three 12-foot candelabra bronze trees with a total of 22 “arms” (Biloxi)
• Four bronze-cast wall sconces to match the candelabra trees (Biloxi)
• A 9.5-foot bronze “tree” in the entrance (Biloxi)
• Door handles to a private dining room that resembled vines with amber pods on top (Biloxi)

When Interior Design magazine reviewed the design of Olives, its writer noted that the restaurant’s most exciting “wow factor” was the cast-bronze, olive-tree sculptures in the dining room.
