Timothy Sheldon has done and a seen a lot in his varied career. He was a professional soccer player touring Asia until an injury cut short his time on the pitch. He worked in television production in LA for Warner Brothers, with Sharon Osbourne and at a new media startup called TMZ. Then he went to New York City to serve as personal assistant and stylist for Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs.
The common thread running through everything Sheldon has done: travel. “It is my No. 1 passion. Anybody who knows me knows that any given week I could be on any given continent,” he says. “It keeps me in touch with what’s new and fresh in different markets and on top of emerging trends in music, fashion and hospitality. Traveling is the nucleus of what I do.”
Someone with Sheldon’s knowledge, network and taste would be an incredible asset for a luxury nightlife venue on the Las Vegas Strip, so it makes sense that he stewards the Living Room at Intrigue Nightclub at Wynn Las Vegas.
“It’s so counter intuitive to common nightlife ideas,” he says. “There are so many clubs, but nobody is doing this concept. This room is special, for invited guests only, and you can’t just buy your way in. So many other venues are really just about the business [of nightlife], but here we want to bring it back to that secret venue where you know you are getting great people and great clientele.”
Sheldon travels constantly, spreading the word about Intrigue and the new experiences to be had at Wynn while continuing to explore what the world outside Las Vegas has to offer. What’s his favorite new discovery? You can have one guess.
“The Living Room is it for me. It’s a new paradigm, ahead of the curve. I feel very lucky, walking around the property every night and seeing the excitement and energy of the casino, knowing we have a special venue here—one that could only happen in Las Vegas.”
