One last Tryst: Pay a final visit to the trailblazing Wynn nightclub

Say farewell to Tryst during the Wynn nightclub’s final weekend of operations.
Danny Mahoney

So Tryst started it all, sorta. Well, first it had to become itself—don’t forget that Wynn’s initial foray into nightclub operations 10 years ago was called La Bête. It was run by mostly food and beverage executives, and it didn’t work at all. When Victor Drai came in and transformed the space into Tryst, a new standard was set—luxury and intimacy and a wild party. The indoor-outdoor setup, the cascading waterfall, all the sexy. Its success paved the way for the Encore expansion of XS, Surrender and Encore Beach Club, ushering in the Wynn DJ boom.

Now it’s time to say goodbye. Tryst shutters after one more party on November 7, and appropriately, DJ Dave Fogg (who helped open the venue) will be in the booth. At some point this weekend, Wynn will reveal at least a little info about the new nightlife concept that will take its place. Hopefully it will be what Tryst was—something different and beautiful to set a new pace.

The Final Affair Weekend at Tryst Industry Closing Party with Dave Fogg, November 5, 10:30 p.m.; Alie Layus, November 6, 10:30 p.m.; Grand Closing with Dave Fogg, November 7, 10:30 p.m.; $30+ men, $20+ women. Wynn, 702-770-3375.
