Beauty Bar co-owner Darin Feinstein has dropped his lawsuit against former patron Megan Trivette. As reported by the Sun, Trivette, who complained of harassment by Feinstein on Facebook in July, published two specific retractions on the social media platform that were the main impetus of his dropping the suit.

Where one legal kerfluffle ends, another begins. Spiegelworld, the production company behind Absinthe, has filed a lawsuit against the Cosmopolitan’s management company, Nevada Property 1 LLC, accusing it of violating numerous terms of their contract, including the mid-July closing of Vegas Nocturne, which had been the resident show at Rose. Rabbit. Lie.

More nightlife-related litigation: The case against former Vegas nightlife VP Mustafa Abdi—aka Moose Diesel—is now being argued in federal court, according to KLAS-TV. Abdi and his former employer are at the center of two suits filed by an anonymous Light Group cocktail server who says Abdi and other club brass forced her to submit to sexual acts and take drugs as part of her job. Abdi has since moved to Miami.

Speaking of Miami: Former XS and Tryst managing partner Cy Waits recently shuttered his South Beach club Adoré after failing to find a new nightlife management group to take it over. The Vegas-style venue opened in March.

Eduardo Cordova, local LGBT nightlife promoter.

Eduardo Cordova is out at Liaison, Drai’s Enterprises’ new LGBT club at Bally’s. The former managing partner and gay promoter was still resolving the separation as of press time.

And the SLS has revealed August 28 grand openings for both ultralounge/dayclub Foxtail and intimate live music/nightlife venue the Sayers Club. DJs Rebecca & Fiona will open the former, while singer Tove Lo breaks in the latter.
