What was rumored over the weekend is now official.
Hakkasan Group will be able to use the tagline, "now with more oontz," come January when its purchase of Light Group for $36 mil is expected to be finalized. 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.

Two years after we first pointed out fun things to do up and down the Strip, we're back for another round. Initially, we suggested some not-so-obvious Vegas activities to explore, but this time, we're broadening our scope to include some obvious things you might have simply discounted. We hope you enjoy the series' return and find something new to check out the next time you are in town.
Some may say it’s just another nightclub, but they probably haven’t actually experienced it. I’d say I’m past my prime clubbing years so it takes a lot to get me to stay out late enough to actually see a headlining DJ. I had always been curious about the hype surrounding Steve Angello since his Swedish House Mafia days so I figured I would check out his new Reflections residency at LiFE Nightclub at SLS Las Vegas.

Hakkasan Group is spreading the (ins)Omnia.
After announcing the club formerly known as Pure would take on the new moniker of Omnia earlier this month, Hakkasan has now revealed that the coming Caesars Palace nightlife venue will have a beat-droppin' sister.

VegasChatter Facebook fan Taylor R. found a trademark filed by parent company Hakkasan for the name, Omnia Beach Club. A check also found a sister trademark for Omnia Day Club. But, while this week's news reports have highlighted the rooftop garden, nary a word has been uttered about a day life experience.

Is it just us or does the new club sound like a sleep aid? Omnia. Saying it just makes us want to take a snooze, not dance with booze. Not really the thoughts that should pop into mind when thinking about a high-energy nightclub. What was once home to one of the original mega clubs, Pure, will now be revamped by Hakkasan Group to become Omnia at Caesars Palace. The word supposedly means “all” though we’re just hearing Ambien competitor.
The 75,000 square-foot space used to have celebrity appearances as its bread and butter but now will return as a performance-focused space much like recent additions to the scene, Light at Mandalay Bay and Life at SLS Las Vegas. Luckily, the venue will still utilize Pure’s famous patio space. It will be turned into a rooftop garden. In addition to the large main area downstairs, the venue will also feature a lounge and mezzanine area. Because the old footprint just wasn’t big enough, Omnia will also spill over into the former Caesars poker room area, giving it plenty of room for performance space.

Hakkasan North will be here before we know it.
Okay, that's not really the new name of the club destined to replace PURE at Caesars Palace (that we know of), but it's now our designated placeholder. While still nameless (or, at the very least, still unannounced), the mega-club will be a sister to Hakkasan at MGM Grand. An extensive renovation of the space includes an expansion into the resort's old poker room.

Just over one month in, SLS Las Vegas is already making noticeable operational changes. Before it opened, many wondered just how the resort would do on the desolate north Strip. Now, could we already be seeing the answer?
Over the last few days, readers have reached out to us about cutbacks at Foxtail, one of several nightlife venues at the north Strip resort, and the SLS buffet.

The nightclub hailed as def not one of the best clubs in Vegas, but better than some others on Yelp is preparing to leave fans with only hazy memories of what was.

The LMFAO song “Sexy And I Know It” was awesome for many of its one-liners, not least of all the gem, “no shirt, no shoes and I still get service!” Chateau Nightclub at Paris, or more specifically its rooftop party pad known as The Deck, is embracing a variation of this song lyric. While you still have to wear a shirt and shoes, it’s not the typical Vegas club dress code. Jeans, flip flops and T-shirts are A-okay. Tank tops for men are welcome as well.
While new to Vegas, this writer was just beginning to wrap her head around the nightclub clothing culture eight or nine years ago when a group of friends tried to get into the now defunct Tangerine lounge at TI. I knew flip flops were a no-no and I wore a dress just to be safe. I watched my guy friends go into a mild panic when the group of men in front of them was turned away for lack of proper footwear. We regrouped and hatched a plan to have one guy (in proper shoes) enter with a girl with a big purse and then she would ferry the pair of shoes back out to the next guy (in flip flops) so we could get our whole group inside. This eventually sounded as ridiculous to us as it likely sounds to you and we just decided to go elsewhere. Unfortunately, this dress code issue can become a real impediment in Vegas, especially when you want to visit a club on the fly and simply don’t have the right clothes on, even if you do know the “rules.”

[Ed. Note: Our sneak peek was actually part of the SLS Las Vegas invite-only "Play Days" which serve as a dress rehearsal of sorts for the SLS service team. Stay tuned for further impressions of the resort when it officially opens to the media and the public on Friday.]
Given the fun billboard ads showing the transition between the “old Vegas vibe of Sahara and the changing of the guard to the hip and trendy SLS Las Vegas, you might expect the entire resort to be a little more retro or at least a hybrid of the eras. After a sneak peek of SLS Las Vegas last night, there weren't as many old school elements hearkening back to the old Sahara as we may have all anticipated but this writer, at least, certainly wasn’t let down by what I saw.
The renovated property has all the upscale hipster-ish feel of the Cosmo in a more easy to navigate package. And, that new casino smell is downright delicious. If body glitter had a scent and you mixed it with the aroma of a fruity tropical drink, that’s how I would describe the first whiff. It was sweet smelling and new, with a dash of seductive optimism.

Last week, we showed off Sin City's finest day wear. Today, we're showcasing some of the town's finest, um, evening wear. Remember, this is Vegas so short and tight is not only expected, but required. Yet, these ladies of the night (not those kinds of ladies) are putting their own spin on club wear. Karl Lagerfeld, it's your turn to look away now.
