A unique club collaboration will bring a Puerto Rican hip-hop legend to Rehab’s pool party for Cinco de Mayo weekend.

Reggaeton star Tego Calderón, also known for his acting roles in the Fast & Furious films, performed at Embassy Nightclub back in November, when the Latin Grammys took over T-Mobile Arena. He was just one of many world music stars to visit Embassy, located west of the Strip near the Chinatown district and known as the headquarters for Latin nightlife in Las Vegas.

“It’s been almost two years now that we’ve been hosting major Latin artists every week, so we have that face, that background,” says Embassy boss Zaher Fakih. “When we got a call from the Hard Rock [Hotel] that they wanted to do something special for Cinco de Mayo, it was great. For other clubs to reach out, it’s a blessing. It means we’re on the right path.”

The result is a fun weekend at the Hard Rock, powered in part by Embassy. Calderón will take the Rehab stage on Sunday to cap the weekend after the big Canelo Álvarez-Julio César Chávez Jr. fight at T-Mobile on Saturday. Embassy is also promoting nighttime pool parties at the Hard Rock’s Breathe Pool Ultra Lounge, too. It’s another interesting step in the continued evolution of Rehab, where Mexican-American DJ Deorro will spin for Saturday’s day party.
