Bottle service at Vegas clubs is often not for the faint of
heart wallet, but reality TV star and Peepshow headliner Coco was even caught off guard by pricing at the newly opened Hakkasan at MGM Grand.
She Facebooked a photo of Hakkasan's premium beverage menu over the weekend with these remarks:

We can probably all agree that clubs are filled with enough douche bags so here's our best advice on how not to be one of them. Got another tip to add to the list? Share it in the comments below!
Be Respectful To Your Host
Whether via email or text, communicate back in a timely fashion and be honest. Don’t tell him (or her) that you can bring 10 girls with you when in reality you can bring four. Or, that your party will be there at 10:30 when you know you’ll arrive at midnight. And if, at the last minute, you change your mind about going to the club, let your host know. Hosts get paid by the amount of people (more so, girls) they can bring in so keep that in mind before you flake out.
Don’t Lie Or Make Up Excuses
“The other girls in my party are still in the bathroom. Can you let us in, anyway?” “I’m best friends with Jesse Waits.” “He’s my designated driver, he doesn’t have to pay cover, does he?” It's all been heard before. And, it gets lamer every time.

Our Club Kid Brandy Alxander is more of a prissy girl these days, but the opening of the 80,000-square-foot megaclub Hakkasan at MGM Grand compelled her to keep on those sexy heels for one more late night on the town. She weighs the pluses and minuses below.
DJs: Before Hakkasan, Angel Management Group (the company that owns Wet Republic, Pure, LAX, among other Vegas venues) occasionally booked a Hollywood heavy hitter or a hot R&B star like Jennifer Lopez and Miguel, but more often booked D-list reality stars (Snookie) or rappers nobody cares about anymore (Vanilla Ice and Fat Joe). So, it was surprising to see the A-list DJs they
poached booked for their grand opening weekend, Memorial Day Weekend and even long-term residencies. Given, you’ve probably already seen Calvin Harris, Deadmau5 and Steve Aoki at Wynn’s nightclubs already, but they’re worth seeing again as they put on a pretty rad show every time.

It probably isn't boring working at the Strip's Boulevard Theater. It sounds like you'll never know who will be performing on their stage from week to week. Located behind Fatburger and across the street from the Monte Carlo, this hidden theater is large, remodeled, but still trying to find its legs. We previously alerted you to their latest headliner, Stars In Concert, a celebrity singer impressionist blockbuster from Europe.
We were very kindly invited to a witness a performance, but it closed before we had the chance. Bit of a surprise to everyone. But, fear not. The Las Vegas Stars In Concert show, featuring an Elvis and a Tom Jones, is still running. Back in Berlin.

The five-story restaurant-slash-club-slash-lounge welcomed a sea of oontz lovers for its inaugural evening. Food lovers, however, must wait 'til May 3 to beat it to Hakkasan's resto for "modern Cantonese cuisine."

Things are a'changing fast at The Quad. Pulse of Vegas, the blog of Caesars Entertainment, recently chronicled the opening of a new bar (Catalyst), a new section of casino floor, a new wine and spirits shop, and two new entrances as well. While work continues on other sections of the hotel-casino, no mention has ever been made about improvements to its sportsbook. But, is that about to change?
VegasChatter Facebook fan Mike P. messaged us today with this news:

VegasChatter fan @JoshTheWeaver first tweeted us news about the closure in November. At the time, MGM said there was nothing official to share. That changed earlier today when they sent out a brief, two-line announcement regarding its end:
Tabú, the boutique nightclub at MGM Grand, will close effective Saturday, April 6. The last night of operation will be Friday, April 5 and more details about the space will be released in the near future.

Remember when Hakkasan at MGM Grand once touted a New Year's Eve 2012 debut? Well, stop it 'cause they probably rather you didn't. Instead, spring ahead to April and May when the brand's nightclub and restaurant will, respectively (and finally), make their Vegas debut. (Fingers crossed)
Hakkasan announced earlier today that its club will open April 18 while its restaurant will start serving "modern Cantonese cuisine" on May 3. As we first told you last summer, Hakkasan will just be your typical five level restaurant-slash-club experience.
Thought this club kid hung up her heels for good? Think again.
The club scene in Vegas is expanding. It’s not just about nightclubs, anymore, and hasn't been for a while. Besides, waiting until the sun goes down to experience the Vegas club scene isn’t making the most of your experience. Party people -- you absolutely must add day and brunch clubs to your Vegas bucket list.
Confused about the difference between day clubs, nightclubs and brunch clubs? Think of the club scene (and the people that fill them) like stereotypical high school girls: Day clubs are the peppy cheerleaders who are waaaay too into costumes and live on Red Bull. Nightclubs are the sexy, popular girls that everyone wants to hang out with, but are kind of overrated. Brunch clubs are your high school sweetheart, a hybrid of the first two, but so much better because she serves some amazing food.
After a lot of dancing, drinking and eating (it’s a rough life), we’ve rounded up the pros and cons of each scene:
You are not going to believe your eyes the first time you walk into LIGHT, the nightclub experience currently under construction in Mandalay Bay. We already knew that things were going to get Cirque-y (Cirque is partners with The Light Group in its creation), but now we're getting our first look at just what that means. And, that pretty much means you are not going to believe your eyes.
LIGHT released two renderings of the mind explosions that will happen once we step inside starting April 26. We can't even begin to tell you what to expect because we're still taking this all in ourselves. And, you haven't even seen the bigger versions yet. Head to our Facebook page to see these renderings super-sized. But, take a moment to prepare yourself, first. Here's how Cirque/Light Group explain it:

Remember when Hakkasan once promised a debut of December 2012? Well, add another four to five months to that. The photos above and below show what Hakkasan looked like over the weekend.
Back in September, we reported that Hakkasan wouldn't open until late April 2013. Now, that timeline still seems to be the case as Vegas Uncork'd touts its kick-off party at Hakkasan.. on May 9. And, if Twitter can be believed, the club will open first with the restaurant to follow:

With the teams now set and the tilt just around the corner, Haze Nightclub at Aria has announced a Big Game party on Thursday night at which they will give away an all-inclusive trip to New Orleans for the Super Bowl to the "Most Valuable Partier."
Save your dance moves, dudes, as it's not your swag that will determine your fate -- it's your female following. The prize goes to the person who brings the biggest group of ladies to the club, and we can't decide what's a better payout: The trip to New Orleans itself or the self-esteem boost that will undoubtedly come along with having the most ladies at your side in the City of Sin.
