Marquee might have been the last major nightclub to announce its New Year’s Eve talent, and it’s a doubleheader: Fetty Wap will perform and conduct the midnight countdown, followed by a 1 a.m. appearance by Bruno Mars, with DJ Politik playing all night. The Cosmo club will host a two-hour open bar and three hours of passed hors d’oeuvres at 9 p.m. Tickets cost $78-$151.
Looks like longtime Wynn nightlife resident Lil Jon is sneaking off to Hakkasan. He plays at Surrender December 19 and pops up next in Hakkasan’s main room on January 1.
A new gay Sunday night on the Strip has bubbled up. Fizz in Caesars Palace—the Champagne bar located where the casino meets the Forum Shops—is now the home of Equality Sundays, which kicked off December 13. The weekly event soundtracked by DJ Brandon Godfrey starts at 9 p.m. and benefits AFAN.
