All three Wynn hotel nightclubs will close for a week or two in December, which might startle clubbers, but the clubs say they’re just using traditionally slow December business days to refresh interiors.
XS will close during Thanksgiving week of Nov. 25, 26 and 28 with a reopening Dec. 2, then close again Dec. 12-26 with a Dec. 30 reopening.
Surrender will close Nov. 25 and 26 and reopen Nov. 30, then close again Dec. 16-24 and reopen Dec. 28.
And Intrigue will close on Thanksgiving (Nov. 24) and reopen Nov. 25, then close again Dec. 16-24 and reopen Dec. 29.
As workers across the city know, December can be slow for business, not just in clubs but also in luxury retail and showrooms.
But other clubs will remain open throughout both November and December, including Omnia in Caesars Palace, 1 Oak in The Mirage, Drai’s in The Cromwell, Jewel in Aria, Hakkasan in the MGM, Marquee and Marquee Dayclub Dome in The Cosmopolitan, Ghostbar Dayclub in the Palms, Tao in The Venetian, Light in Mandalay Bay, Foxtail in the SLS and the Bank and Hyde Bellagio in Bellagio.
Clubs such as Hakkasan and the Bank are even open Thanksgiving.
Many clubs, such as Omnia and Ghostbar Dayclub, will be closed for Christmas.
And like the Wynn clubs, Chateau in the Paris is closing the first three weeks of December to do some refreshing.
All the clubs will be open New Year’s Eve, of course, since Dec. 31 is normally the most bananas night of the year.
MORE HALLOWEEN OUTFITS
Among celebrities dressing up for Halloween weekend and Halloween night at clubs:
At Drai’s, Floyd Mayweather Jr. went onstage (with rapper 50 Cent) outfitted as “The Money Man” — a suit printed out of money patterns.
Drai’s rapper Tip “T.I.” Harris showed up as a character called “Sir Knightly Von Killings, Vampire Hunter,” but he switched into a pilot uniform when it came time to perform there for Drai’s “Top Gun” theme. Puff Daddy wore a red cape and long black wig as “Thor” while standing over his DJ booth, holding a bottle of booze and rapping at club Jewel.
And Asa Akira and Joanna Angel showed up as demonic cheerleaders at club Chateau.
