Notice the familiar face on CNN last Sunday? Well, there were ostensibly a few of them, but any nightlife regular would have recognized local Marquee resident Jason Lema, who performed and answered queries during the nightclub segment of the Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown travelogue show devoted to Las Vegas.
Longtime local beat-server DJ Shoe, who wears Hakkasan restaurant’s music manager and resident DJ hats (among others for the international nightclub/eatery brand), has added his dining-hour deep house sets to the popular Hakkasan Nightclub Radio podcast, found on iTunes and Soundcloud.
Pour out some Guinness for southeast tavern Quinn’s Irish Pub at Green Valley Ranch, which was recently shuttered, to be replaced by an as-yet-unknown new offering.
From the you-read-that-right file: A one-off, fairy-tale-themed gay party called Mirror Mirror takes place April 26 at Vanity, the special-event nightclub at Hard Rock Hotel. The Snow White-inspired night will have Nick Ayler in the DJ booth and drag performer Disco Dollie on hosting duty. Locals pay $10 for entrance.
Another week, another development in the After saga. The afterhours party—which suddenly left TW Theater two weeks ago, leaving its future dates in doubt—will get to throw its April 26 event featuring Chicago house DJ Anthony Attalla at Posh Nightclub inside Crazy Horse III. It’s unconfirmed whether Posh will be After’s new home, though.
In daylife news: The 21-and-over Daydream Pool Club at M Resort—an alternative to the booming, confetti-strewn experience in the tourist corridor—opens April 26 for Saturday-Sunday operation. Locals not staying at the hotel get in for $20. And those who want to see an indoor lounge transformed into an oceanside throwdown might want to attend Hyde’s season finale for its themed XIV Vegas Sessions party, called Life Is a Beach, on April 27.
