Lily Bar and Lounge Grand Opening

Robin Thicke Performs at the Bank

The Light Group’s Lily Bar and Lounge hosted an official grand-opening celebration at the Bellagio on Saturday night, and the celebrity turnout included Whitney Port (in a BCBG dress), Mark Salling (who wore a Rudsak Joseph leather jacket), Eliza Dushku and boyfriend Rick Fox, Cee Lo Green (who performed at the Keep Memory Alive “Power of Love Gala” tribute to Muhammad Ali’s 70th birthday at MGM Grand Garden Arena and Haze in Aria on Saturday night), hometown hero Ne-Yo, Billy Burke, Carly Chaikin and Parker Young.

DJ Alexandra Richards set the tone of the soiree behind the turntables, and at midnight, singer-songwriter Robin Thicke surprised guests with a set behind a mini grand piano, including his hit “Lost Without You,” before heading to nearby Bank for the Lily Bar & Lounge Grand Opening after-party, where he performed again for Saturday night partygoers.

Lily is the former site of Caramel Lounge.
