A couple of big Vegas names are trying their luck in the South Beach nightlife scene. Miami magazine reports that Cy Waits—former partner at XS and Tryst, which are currently run by his twin brother Jesse—is heading east to open a new nightclub with former Body English and Rehab manager Cory McCormack. Adoré is expected to open December 5.
On Saturday, staffers at the Act were notified that night would be the club’s last, closing after just one year at the Palazzo. The much-hyped outpost of The Box in New York ran into trouble with Las Vegas Sands, which attempted to evict the club in August for explicit performances they claimed violated Nevada obscenity laws.
Sean Kingston closed out Rehab’s summer party season with a set including the hits “Letting Go (Dutty Love),” “Fire Burning” and “Beat It” on Sunday. Later that night, Marquee hosted a celebration for two-time America’s Best DJ winner Kaskade, with DJ Times editor Jim Tremayne and Pioneer Marketing Manager David Arevalo presenting him with a plaque and a customized 24-karat gold Pioneer mixer. Kaskade, who also won in 2011, is the first DJ to top the poll twice.
And Kaskade will be back in Vegas on Halloween, as part of the weeklong XS Apocalypse celebration. Sister club Tryst will produce an almost concurrent slate of heroes-and-villians-themed parties called Heroween. If you’re more inclined to celeb-watch, none other than Kim Kardashian will celebrate her birthday at Tao on October 25.
