It’s never too early to plan your year-end nightclub stop. With that in mind: R&B singer Miguel will be headlining at Tao on New Year’s Eve. The Grammy-winning artist made it official after his Saturday evening performance at the club. Also recently revealed: Hitmaking producer/DJ Calvin Harris will be ringing in 2014 at Hakkasan, and Bruno Mars will christen the new Chelsea at Cosmopolitan.

Crazy Horse III and Posh announced their Halloween festivities, the fourth annual XXX-Travaganza. This time, it’s four nights of partying (starting on October 30), including a superhero-themed costume contest hosted by Pin Up star Claire Sinclair and a Ghouls Gone Wild booty-shaking contest. The full itinerary is available at

The Strip’s nightlife spots were celeb-spotting central thanks to last weekend’s iHeartRadio Music Festival. Adam Lambert, Queen’s Brian May, Kate Hudson, Muse’s Matthew Bellamy and Nick Hissom joined Katy Perry at Botero steakhouse on Friday night, before taking over three private cabanas at XS and partying into the early morning hours.

Ke$ha did a little post-festival partying with a group of friends at Hakkasan, joining Calvin Harris and BBC icon Pete Tong in the DJ booth on Saturday. And at Encore Beach Club, R&B star and former Las Vegan Ne-Yo stopped by with a group of friends to catch DJ Martin Solveig’s set from a private bungalow.
