Zee Zandi is keeping Vegas on the cutting edge.

As executive director of artist development and strategy at Wynn Nightlife, Zee Zandi is helping to build a colorful, creative soundtrack for the Las Vegas nightclub and dayclub scene. That sonic curation has become increasingly diverse in recent years at Wynn’s venues XS, Encore Beach Club and Intrigue as more artists with connections to the European party scene have landed on the Strip, epitomized by the landmark Art of the Wild weekend, which returns to Wynn March 22-24. Zandi is an essential contributor to this musical movement and one of the most influential industry figures for more than 20 years now.

Zee has great taste in Vegas Thai food and has been lunching at the fantastic new version of the legendary Lotus of Siam.

Mark always stops in at Makers & Finders Coffee whenever he’s roaming Downtown Summerlin.
