The latest indulgent nightlife creation is Vanity, set to open in the new, luxurious HRH Tower at the Hard Rock Hotel on New Year’s Eve. The official grand opening is Jan. 2 with music mogul, record producer and primo party pro P. Diddy.
MLB star Jason Giambi is a co-owner of Vanity with The Nightlife Group, which runs Body English, Rehab, Carey Hart’s Wasted Space and Rare 120, all at the Hard Rock.
The entrance welcomes partygoers with a collage of sparkling, reflective tile and antique vanity mirrors. The interior, courtesy of Mr. Important Designs, transports guests into an eclectic jewel box adorned with pearls, hand-cut crystals and reflective walls of bronze fused with metallic gold.
The heartbeat of the club is a spectacular cyclone chandelier lit from within by more than 20,000 LED lights that brings the dance floor to life.
“We’ve taken everything we learned from Body English, one of the best nightclubs to hit Vegas, and brought it to the next level,” said Cory McCormack, Hard Rock’s managing partner of The Nightlife Group. “Vanity will cater to a person’s every whim.”
The 14,000 square-foot venue features two marble bars, 50 intimate VIP booths and an outdoor terrace with cabanas and fire pit that offers direct access to the new outdoor Sky Bar opening next April. The ladies lounge at the nightclub comes complete with nail and makeup technicians available for touch-ups, and all bathrooms are equipped with full-length, three-way mirrors, naturally.
VIP seating lines the 80-foot sunken dance floor, while a larger center seating area borders an onyx catwalk lined with tall lanterns. Staff in rocker-style uniforms offers champagne menus engraved on handheld antique mirrors.
Vanity will be open Thursdays through Sundays, with Godskitchen every Thursday, DJ Eric D-Lux on Fridays, DJ Clinton Sparks on Saturdays and Sin at Vanity on Sundays with DJs Eric Cubeechee, Presto One and Five.
The new nightspot is part of the Hard Rock Hotel’s $750 million expansion, which includes the addition of 860 guest rooms -- the recently opened Paradise Tower and HRH Tower opening on Dec. 28, with Reliquary Spa located across from Vanity.
The Hard Rock’s two new towers will be completed with new pools and the Sky Bar in the first half of 2010, and by spring 2010, the property will have created more than 1,200 new jobs.
