Two Big Closures: MO5AIC at Bally's and LiFE at SLS

June 30, 2015 at 10:41 AM | by | ()

Grand opening....Grand closing.

We're used to places suddenly closing on The Strip but these two closures have us slightly taken aback. Let's start with the first and the most sudden of the two--Mo5aic at Bally's.

Just last week, the boys of this acapella show were hyping their return to Las Vegas with a grand media opening at the Windows Showroom at Bally's. But sadly, the residency lasted just short of a month as the The LVRJ reports that the show was halted due to "a dispute over delinquent rent." Seems like Mo5aic' s producer just pulled the plug at the last-minute. (Which probably won't help the guys get hired in this town again.)

Body English to Speak No More After July 3?

June 25, 2015 at 7:37 PM | by | ()

UPDATE 6.29.15: Yup, Body English is closing for good on July 3. The Hard Rock included the closing news in their weekly e-newsletter.

A tipster told us that Body English, the long-standing nightclub at the Hard Rock Las Vegas, will no longer be speaking English, body talk or any other language after July 3. That's because the club, which has been like a second Shore house for DJ Pauly D, is closing up shop on that day.

This is just a rumor but in Vegas, where there is a Facebook status update smoke, there's usually fire. Interestingly, Body English has not updated their social media profiles since May 24, which is like six months in Vegas time and in these heady social media days, pretty much means the death knell. Whether this closure is permanent or not, we don't know but signs are pointing to "CLOSED FOREVER." A few years ago, Body English closed down but returned by the time the Rapture of 2012 had come and gone.

As for this weekend, the club is still open at its usual times on Friday and Saturday from 10:30 pm until "close." Ladies are expected to pay $20 at the door while the "gents" should cough up $30. Perhaps you should do a shot at Center Bar and then pour some sugar liquor out at Body English. Just in case you don't get a chance to say a final goodbye.

Neon Will Once Again Rule Las Vegas When EDC Comes to Town Next Weekend

June 12, 2015 at 8:03 PM | by | ()

Fans of good ole' rock n' roll, look away now.

We're just one week away from the Electric Daisy Carnival, the electronic dance music (EDM) festival featuring 200 DJs spread out over eight stages at the Las Vegas Speedway. This is the carnival's fifth year in Las Vegas.

If you were hoping to get a ticket, 3-day general admission tickets are already sold-out--at least the ones that cost $329. But according to TicketMaster, there are some 3-day general admission tickets that are still up for sale at $349 a person, which end up totaling $388 with taxes and fee. VIP tickets are still available as well for $748 a person, including taxes and fees. EDC does not sell 1-day tickets but you can pay thousands of dollars for Marquee Skydeck Tables which are available on a one-day basis. *Bangs head against table. Does it again.*

The best way to find out whatever it is you need to know about EDC is to visit the website which like the festival, is overloaded with information but the carnival's Facebook page is posting regular updates as well.

Even though we think EDC attendees will be too burned out to do anything other than drugs dance at the festival, Las Vegas nightclubs such as Omnia, LiFE, and XS are bringing their celebrity DJs out in hopes of catching EDC-goers.

Incredibly, room rates aren't all that ridiculous next weekend. The Venetian is at $299; The Bellagio at $318; Wynn at $344 and MGM Grand at $222 with many others falling between the $150 and $250 range. Which is quite good for Strip hotels during a (supposedly) peak demand summer weekend.

Are you attending EDC next weekend or nah? Let us know in comments below!

What Happens If You Get Banned From a Las Vegas Property

Where: 3131 S. Las Vegas Blvd [map], 89109

So, let's say you come to Vegas and you get into a little bit of trouble. Maybe you partied too hard or broke a rule… and then got banned from a casino (yolo). Is that ban permanent? We had a reader, who obviously will remain nameless, tell us about this terrible, horrible, very bad, no good day in Vegas.

“I am a frequenter of the Vegas pool club and nightlife scene, particularly those on the Wynn/Encore properties. Unfortunately, about a year back, I was caught with a single illicit substance in my wallet (I had forgotten it was there from the night before, was holding it for someone) and was told I was banned from the entire property. They had me face a security camera (which apparently took my pic) and my license. I haven't been back since.”

My question: is there a process to get un-banned from Wynn/Encore of any Vegas casino? Or is this a permanent thing?

The Top Picks Of Vegas Concierge

April 21, 2015 at 1:59 PM | by | ()

In Vegas the only thing better than a free buffet is insider info on the top shows, restaurants and attractions. So many of the contests to rate these keys to a fun vacation have majorly padded votes or PR influence. Getting an honest opinion is hard to come by. That’s where VegasChatter and the concierge desk come in. Concierge are the front line in Vegas entertainment options. They’ve seen all the shows and eaten at all the restaurants. They’ve partied in every club and hit up every attraction.

VegasChatter got the chance to attend the Southern Nevada Hotel Concierge Association’s 25th Anniversary, hosted at Wynn Las Vegas. Steve Wynn himself even showed up and presented a few acts from his favorite child, ShowStoppers. These awards are voted on by the concierge and thus carry a little more clout than your garden variety recommendation.

Hakkasan and NOW Omnia! Hakkasan group just got that much stronger. View from behind the DJ. #Hakkasan #Omnia #Vegas

If you oontz it, they will come.

Omnia, the brand new nightlife experience at Caesars Palace by Hakkasan Group, is street official now. An invite-only group previewed the mega-club last night and flooded social media with a first look. The most ooo-worthy was the massive, Close Encounters of the Third Kind-inspired chandelier above the main dance floor which appears to drop almost as much as the bass does.

The Liaison Is Over At Bally's

Where: 3645 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

Another gay club in Las Vegas has run its course. Liaison Nightclub at Bally’s didn’t even make it to the year mark. There was much excitement about its opening last June when it took over the temporary space Drai’s Afterhours occupied before reopening at The Cromwell. But, even with club guru Victor Drai's guidance and an impressive lineup of LGBTQ celebs, the club closed its doors last night.

The news comes as no surprise to many. We had heard rumblings of unhappy employees and fans alike. The club was rarely full and cut back its nights of operation soon after opening.

Westgate's pool in October 2014.

Westgate owner David Siegel wasn't all talk. When he purchased the LVH last July, Siegel had big plans for the flailing off-Strip property. And, before year's end, he'd already started to deliver.

Omnia Drops Its DJ Lineup, Rendering Of Interior

January 20, 2015 at 4:56 PM | by | ()

Despite not loving the snooze-inducing name, Omnia's renderings have us a little more excited. We may still need a Red Bull to get past that moniker, but at least the interior of Caesars' new club looks promising. The exterior rendering had been previously released, but an interior rendering was made public today as well as a preliminary list of headliners who will grace the new club’s DJ booth.

What To Expect From Vegas in 2015

January 8, 2015 at 1:02 PM | by | ()

If 2014 was the year of the new hotel, 2015 will be the year of the restaurant in Las Vegas. A billion (rough estimate) new dining destinations will fire up around Las Vegas this year and, for the most part, that's about it. Yes, we'll also see the arrival of Hakkasan North, erm.. Omnia.. and the Delano Beach Club, but otherwise, you're going to have some eating to do. And, by some, I mean you need to buy extra stretchy pants now.

More Dining

So yeah, dining. You won't be able to walk in any direction without running into a new eatery this year. Aria will welcome Michael Mina's BARDOT Brasserie (January 16). Casino Royale will be all about that White Castle (expected later this month). Bellagio will bring the Lago (March). Caesars Palace will launch Searsucker and MR CHOW (both this spring). Gordon Ramsay will bring his Fish & Chips to The LINQ (spring). Morimoto will finally fire it up at The Mirage (summer). Rivea will replace miX at Delano (September?).

The buyout will mean the assimilation of Light nightclub at Mandalay Bay, 1OAK at The Mirage and The Bank at Bellagio, as well as the lounges and most of the restaurants under the Light Group domain.
