Work Has Begun on The Encore Beach Club

November 21, 2009

Ok, so there’s this big thing opening soon in Vegas that rhymes with DittyDenter but if you’re Steve Wynnwhat are you really focusing on these days? Tearing down the front of your less-than-a-year-old hotel, Encore, and building an $80 million beach club.

The Encore Beach Club is set to open this summer and VegasCabbie snapped a pic of the construction that’s currently going on from the outside. Meanwhile, Two Way Hard Three has a pic of the inside. The tentative name of the club will be the Switch Beach Club because of its proximity to the Switch restaurant. But since Switch is a name that alludes to the culinary dinner theater that happens inside the restaurant, we don’t think that name will stick.

It’s also hard for us to even think about summer with the holidays on the horizon but if Wynn is building it, then we will come. If we don’t, there’s always CityCenter. (Burn.)  Via:  Julianna – VegasChatter

Cool Hotels for Bar Hopping

October 29, 2009

I don’t know about you, but I love going to hotel bars!  They are upscale, classy, and in this case….trendy. Today, there are many Hip Hotels that are stepping up their game when it comes to cool bars. Jet Setters who love traveling around the world make it a point to book hotels that have a trendy little bar scene within the hotel….it’s a requirement.  It’s about the Travel, and of course the Party!

Here are some cool hotel companies that have stepped up, and continue to re-create the hotel bar trend. And being a true Jet Setter, this is a must for hotel bar hopping!

Desire Hotels – This boutique hotel company is headquartered in Miami. They have 10 properties around the country. Known for top-notch terrace lounges, restaurants, and rooftop bars.

Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants – Always a F&B innovator, the San Francisco-based Kimpton operates more than 50 restaurants, and nearly 50 hotels in North America. Check out their newest venture; NIOS. An American restaurant and wine bar located right across from the Muse New York in the Big Apple.

NYLO Hotels – Not as big as the other hotel companies, NYLO owns three properties. NYLO recently opened the NYLO Dallas/Las Colinas that offers a sleek Texan vibe (whatever that means). You know the deal, don’t mess with Texas!

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide – One of my favorite and newest brands that fill up the 966 hotel portfolio is the Aloft Hotels. Each property features the w xyz bar, where signature cocktails, house-made infused spirits and evening events make the bar a hot spot. Happy Hour…..foget about it!  Aloft Hotels is definitley on my top list for cool hotels with the trendiest bar scene.

Wyndham Worldwide – This massive hotel company offers 7,024 hotels and 11 hotel brands around the world! I’m like DAMN……there is no excuse to not hotel bar hop with them right! I would be done after my third location =).

Nightlife Aboard the Norwegian Epic

October 26, 2009

Just when you think your eyes can’t get any wider, you step on board.  Welcome to the Norwegiean Epic!

Looking for a new, cool, hip cruise line that can handle your nightlife cravings? Well look no further!  Let me introduce you to  the Norwegian Epic,  the next level of Freestyle Cruising with unparalleled nightlife and entertainment.

All I can say is that the nightlife aboard the ship will be “epic”. Check out Ice Bar.  At 17 degress fahrenheit, it’s the hottest bar on the ship. A faux fur coat will keep you warm in the only true ice bar at sea……AWESOME!  Oh, the vodka helps, too.  The Norwegian Epic will have 19 bars, nightclubs and lounges, including the Ibiza-style Spice H20 and French Riviera-chic Posh Beach Club.

Sounds exciting right!  Well, the Norwegian Epic does not set sail until Summer 2010, and will be offering cruises out of Miami to the Eastern and Western Caribbean, but guess what? You can still book your cruise today =)

Get Your Tickets To The Playboy Mansion’s Halloween Party Now

October 7, 2009
Where: Los Angeles, CA, United States

Did you watch “The Girls Next Door” religiously back when Holly, Kendra and Bridget were running the Playboy Mansion? Are you in need of Halloween plans in the Los Angeles area? Look no further then the notorious Playboy Halloween Party, for which tickets have just gone on sale, costing about $1,000 each. You’ll be rolling up to party at the mansion of course, but no sleeping over; they’ve set up packages at the Hollywood Roosevelt for that, which is just as full of collagen and nudity anyways.

The official name of the party is the “Kandy Halloween Party at The Playboy Mansion,” since not only will the place be packed with dudes who shelled out the $1,000-$2,000 just for entrance, but also with Kandy models, Playboy bunnies, and “over 1,000 of the sexiest girls in the world.” That’s like paying $1-$2 each, just to be in their presence.

What costs $10,000, after the jump.

For some reason, we always thought that Playboy parties were mainly private affairs, with Hugh celebrating amongst his closest several thousand friends, but nope—any old schmuck with a large bank account can get in. Oh, and any old schmuck can do even better if he’s willing to part with $10,000 to have a table or cabana that evening. It will entitle the buyer to “free flowing bottle service, dedicated Kabana Girl, 2 bottles of Cristal, seating for 8-10, VIP Check-in, security and special Kandy surprises!”

So far, the only celebs we know who will be there are Flo Rida, who is performing, and good old Hugh Hefner, whose girls do the performing for him. They also promise robotic monsters, professional scare actors, expert set designers and lavish haunted décor, so long as you promise to get in the spirit of Halloween. Costumes are mandatory, and there’ll be no throwing on a Scream mask at the last minute; you’ve got to go whole-hog with your getup or face the wrath of the bunnies.

To book your tickets, head to their website at KandyHalloween.com, and enter VIP invitation code “TP3333,” which we hope gives you some fun benefits or something.  by JetSetCD – Jaunted

The Viceroy Snowmass Will Open in November at $150 a Night (With 50% Off Additional Nights)

October 3, 2009

Where: 130 Wood Road [map], Snowmass, CO, United States, 81615

While the spoiled ski bunnies will have to wait another year for the Montage Deer Valley to open, in the meantime, they can have their personal assistants switch their itineraries to The Viceroy Snowmass in Colorado which still expects to open on November 25.

Also still in effect through December 23rd, is a special deal that gets guests who book one night there, any additional nights at 50 percent off. But wait, it gets even better still.

The opening rate on November 25 is only $150 a night for a studio residence with mountain views which includes a king-size bed, fireplace, a small kitchen, 42-inch flat screens and WiFi. The room sizes start at 375-square-feet which is a little on the small side for a “studio” room category but hey, the price is right. Just don’t expect any fresh powder at your feet.

On site, the hotel offers a ski concierge who can get your lift tickets and store your equipment. There’s also ski-in, ski-out access, a signature restaurant and lobby bar, a heated outdoor pool with cabanas and hot tubs and even a Kelly Wearstler-designed pool cafe. (Designer Jean-Michel Gathy did the rest of the hotel’s interiors.) And your four-legged friends can shack up with you as well, for $100 per stay.

If we didn’t already have plans for Thanksgiving (on Nov. 26), we’d make a point of being here.  by juliana – HotelChatter

September 30, 2009

Where: Las Vegas

Paris Hilton apparently has a sunglass line and she will be debuting it this Friday at The Hard Rock from 8pm to 10pm at the pool. The shindig is officially called, “Paris Hilton Fashion Show and VIP Cocktail.” Sorry but not even “VIP Cocktails” (whatever that is) could get us to party with Paris. But we are whores for free shades. Early birds will get Paris Hilton sunglasses for free.  by juliana – VegasChatter
