XIV Sessions brings the neon Wild Wild West to Hyde

Who turns up on a Sunday? Hyde does.

Champagne showers and cowboy boots. And lots and lots of confetti. That was the scene at Hyde Bellagio on Sunday during the recurring XIV Sessions party.

The normally chic and ultra-modern lounge was repurposed that night as a neon Wild Wild West, soaked in black light as orange and green stallions and horseshoe decorations hung from the ceiling. All around me, droves of girls in midriff-baring plaid shirts, cowboy hats and Daisy Dukes danced on tables, shimmying and shaking to DJ Stellar’s blaring beats. There was no telling what kind of craziness might ensue, and that’s exactly why XIV has become Hyde’s signature event.

It’s the kind of party that isn’t for the faint of heart, and it’s as far from your average Netflix-and-chill Sunday as possible. From St. Patrick’s Day bashes to neon fiestas and Candyland-themed parties, XIV pulls out all the stops. And while it’s only a winter and fall occasion in Las Vegas—Hyde Los Angeles kicks off its summer sessions in May—it’ll give you something to look forward to once you’re ready to retire that swimsuit, and when you’re wanting to keep the party rocking all week long.
