Celebs like Katie Holmes and Victoria Justice appeared at the grand opening of Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer at the Venetian hotel-casino on December 29.

Black Tap is a New York-based restaurant known for their high-end burgers and ridiculous shakes. They first got their start in 2015 and have since opened four locations in New York City, as well as one restaurant in Dubai.

The Las Vegas location is the restaurant's first U.S. expansion outside of New York.

Black Tap has grown quite a bit since its humble beginnings.

"It started off as a 15-seat burger restaurant in New York that was just about coming in and having a burger and a beer," owner Chris Barish explained. "Now it's transformed into this unbelievable experience."

Outside of its Instagram-worthy aesthetics, the restaurant is backed by Michelin-starred chef Joe Isidori, meaning that the food tastes just as good as it looks.

"Our burger is more about simplicity and nostalgia," said Isidori. "You take that fine dining-level of a chef and drill it into a really casual burger, and I think that's what makes it stand out from the rest."
