The annual Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show hits the Strip this week, and the nightlife expo’s afterparties always offer interesting environments as operators from around the country get a taste of what’s going on right now in industry-leading Las Vegas.
March 26 features a kickoff at Foxtail Pool, an early in at XS where Diplo will take the stage and a country-themed party at Stoney’s. Night 2 keeps it rocking with a tasting at the Otheroom at the Forum Shops at Caesars and a party at Omnia.
Wednesday gets wild at Hyde Bellagio. The Nightclub & Bar finale runs from 9 to 11 p.m. on March 28, but then doors open to everyone for Neon Jungle, a sexy safari sure to go down in the books as one of the most memorable parties of the year. Consider it an extra edition of Hyde’s legendary XIV Sessions, where the team shows the theme—in this case, servers clad in seductive renditions of wild animal costumes—and the Champagne showers don’t stop. Expect more confetti than you know what to do with, plus sounds from life of the party himself, DJ Five, who’s just returning from a trip to Japan.
NEON JUNGLE WITH DJ FIVE March 28, 10:30 p.m., $20-$30. Hyde Bellagio, 702-693-8700.
