Kimberly Esparza, marketing director, Tivoli Village

Q: What are you reading?

A: “The Power of Positive Leadership” by Jon Gordon and “Present Over Perfect” by Shauna Niequist

Q: What is your favorite restaurant? Where do you take clients to dinner?

A: Echo & Rig at Tivoli Village. Besides the amazing Old World ambiance that Tivoli provides, I can’t get enough of their Over The Rainbow salad and portobello fries are a win every time. Tivoli’s newest restaurant, Hamptons, is becoming a fast favorite for me, too. Their green chile pork stew and Wild Isles salmon mignon are incredible.

Q: Where do you work out or play your favorite sport?

A: The Grateful Yogi

Q: How do you decompress after a hard week?

A: Since Tivoli Village is now under new management in an effort to shift focus, drive new business and better position the asset, I’ve had quite the transition into my new role with the property and Pacific Retail Capital Partners. Yoga, time with my husband and son hanging out in our backyard or a glass of Champagne and a good book on Audible (1.5x speed, helps me pay attention) are how I like to try to unwind at the end of every week.

Q: What is the biggest challenge facing Las Vegas in the next five years?

A: Remaining a destination. Las Vegas is naturally ahead of the curve in one of the industries’ major trends, the shift toward experiential retail. Las Vegas is also fortunate to have a plethora of shops, some of which are only found in unique or aspirational shopping districts or major, sometimes international cities. Tivoli Village has the potential to pull those type of partners wanting to expand into the marketplace, and we have a lot of unique concepts and individual stores that have not been replicated in other parts of Las Vegas. We, as a community, are fortunate to have the addition of major league sports which will continue to drive the market.
