Celebs gone but not forgotten after Las Vegas Grand Prix

Updated November 22, 2023 - 8:16 am

Let’s play F1 cleanup with the famous folk.

The Las Vegas Grand Prix might have bugged out, but we still have some superstar-sorting to do. Celebs hit the scene with the RPMs of Max Verstappen’s RB19 (we are learning the sport, even after its first run in Las Vegas).

The After by Wynn at Delilah Las Vegas was the pace-setter, held during Wynn’s Ultimate Race Week extended party.

The event’s co-hosts were Wynn CEO Craig Billings; The h.wood group co-founders John Terzian and Brian Toll, operators of Delilah at the Wynn; Bond Hospitality, which opening an outpost of its exclusive Zero Bond club at Wynn in 2025; and Carver Road Hospitality co-founder and former Wynn Nightlife visionary Sean Christie, whose company operates Casa Playa at Encore.

Quest Love was the event’s DJ at Delilah. VIPs reported on hand included (and be prepared for serious bold-face action): Justin Bieber, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Casey Affleck, Brooklyn Beckham, James Harden, Sofia Vergara, Jon Hamm, Tyga, Shaun White, Nina Dobrev, Wiz Khalifa, Odell Beckham Jr., Leon Bridges, Zach Braff, Corey Gamble, Richie Akiva, Ashley Graham, Elijah Diamond, Sofia Franklyn, Balthazar Getty, Damson Idris, Crystal Minkoff, Anthony Mackie, Dre London, Flava Flav, Rudy Gay, Karlie Kloss, Lil Baby, Scott Galloway, Donald Faison, Trevor Wallace, Rudy Mancuso, Kimball Musk, Jonathan Cheban, Michael Rubin, Sam Wilson, Alec Monopoly, Myles Shear, Druski, Jalen Rose, Sam Wilson, Frida Aasen, Tony Gonzalez, Kayla Ewell and Tanner Novlan.

At XS on Friday, TikTok influencer Alix Earle influenced the DJ booth to join EDM superstars Swedish House Mafia. VIP DiCaprio, Maguire, Michael B. Jordan, French Montana and Saweetie were also in the mix.

At Encore Beach Club on Saturday, just before the race, Tyla performed her hit “Water” with Marshmello during the ESPN Presents party at Encore Beach Club. Other notable VIPs in attendance include Nigel Sylvester, Rudy Gay, Warren Sapp and Lawyer Milloy.

Later that evening at XS, Calvin Harris, Diplo and Dom Dolla welcomed Lewis Hamilton, Kelsea Ballerini, Chase Stokes, Beckham Jr., Russell Westbrook, Earle, Saweetie, Wiz Khalifa, Druski, Mike Majlak and David Dobrik.

As Terzian said, “It was a magical night and was great for all of Team Wynn to come together to host.” And also, a requisite reference to party cannons, our favorite nightclub effect.
