Nightlife News & Notes: MDW celeb sightings, Mix closes and more

50 Cent and Chris Brown at Drai’s Nightclub.

Mix restaurant and its long-running, adjacent party spot on the 64th floor of the Delano will close June 1 to make way for the eventual opening of Alain Ducasse’s Mediterranean eatery Rivea and a new lounge concept to be revealed in the coming weeks. Mix Lounge was one of Mandalay Bay/Delano’s longest-operating nightlife ventures; House of Blues’ Foundation Room will remain the property’s oldest dance room after Mix shutters.

MDW post-mortem: Akon performed alongside 50 Cent during the latter’s live set Friday night at Drai’s Nightclub. Two nights later, 50—along with Too Short and Meek Mill—joined Chris Brown’s own post-midnight concert at the same venue. … Meek Mill was also spotted at Palms Pool & Dayclub on Sunday with girlfriend Nicki Minaj and Karlie Redd. … Kevin Hart joined both Fabolous (performing live at Tao Beach) and Eric D-Lux (DJing at Tao) onstage, bringing up Taraji P. Henson during both occasions. In between hamming it up at the two party spots, Hart performed the second of two comedy shows at Mandalay Bay Events Center, and he also stopped by STK late Friday night and Tao Beach and Marquee on Saturday. … Speaking of Tao: Wiz Khalifa joined Snoop Dogg during the latter’s Saturday night DJ set to perform their song “Young, Wild & Free.”

Disco-llaneous: Surrender hosts Major Lazer’s release party for its new album Peace Is the Mission on June 3. Exactly one week later, the Encore club employs Wynn nightlife resident Skrillex for its fifth-anniversary party. … House/techno party After is planning a pre-sunset get-together at Sunset Park June 3 at 3 p.m., featuring all its DJs and honoring founder Thom Svast and resident DJ Alex Clark’s birthdays. ...
