Vanity is poised to become one of Vegas’ favorite sins
The Hard Rock’s soon-to-open club will offer a dramatic counterpoint to Body English
Tue, Oct 13, 2009 (5 p.m.)
The Sin City nightlife scene is going to get a whole lot sinnier with the New Year’s Eve arrival of Vanity Nightclub on the second floor of the new and exclusive HRH Tower at the Hard Rock. And by the sounds of things, Vanity will have plenty to boast about.
Said to be weighing in at a substantial 15,000 square feet, the one-story nightclub is rumored to feature a $1 million floor-to-ceiling chandelier as its centerpiece and boast 55 VIP tables, five outdoor cabanas and an outdoor patio, which overlooks the famous Las Vegas Strip as well as the infamous Hard Rock pool complex. The club’s main room is also said to be comparable to that of Luxor’s LAX, but only with respect to its layout.
Whereas Body English is a dimly-lit, provocative, downstairs enclosure, Vanity will be set up on high with a contrasting look and feel and a commanding view, says a source. (The Weekly is silently praying for a heaven and hell-themed event to span both venues next Halloween.)
And while Vanity is expected to be blossoming on New Year’s Eve with a grand opening celebration to remember, Body English will be going out with a bang. It’s said to be closing its doors, though only for minor renovations and only until April 2010, when it will reemerge—it is rumored—as an exclusive, upscale afterhours venue.
Vanity will be holding a casting call on Wednesday, October 21 for all positions including bartenders, barbacks, cocktail servers, table attendants, door hosts and VIP hosts from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in Muse Halls 5 and 6.
Going in for an interview? Don’t be shy! One would expect a little vanity to be de rigeur at Vanity.
Arguably one the coolest joints in town, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino houses some of Vegas' best entertainment, restaurants and nightlife.
At Hard Rock, it's all about the music. From the light fixtures made out of drum cymbals and guitar shaped door handles to stage costumes and tools of the trade of legendary musicians displayed on the walls, the hotel screams rock and roll. The Hard Rock's Joint has hosted some the biggest names in music — from The Who to Bob Dylan to hometown heroes, The Killers.Aside from the music venues, the pool at the Hard Rock is one of its biggest attractions. Spread out over 4.7 acres, the pool area features swim-up blackjack, a bar and grill, private cabanas, a bevy of secluded nooks, a waterfall and an extensive live music venue with a dance floor. During the summer, the pool transforms into the Rehab club on Sunday afternoons.
The resident nightclub Body English fuses European elegance with a rock star bachelor pad and it often a hot spot for visiting celebs and popular DJs. Vintage rock memorabilia lines the walls at Wasted Space, Hard Rock's anti-club.
Restaurants at Hard Rock are just as hip as the rest of the casino. Pink Taco serves up Mexican dishes, as well as a Central American and Caribbean menu. Nobu, one of five worldwide Japanese-specialty restaurants from famed Nobu Matsuhisa, satisfies a different taste. For round-the-clock cuisine, Mr. Lucky's 24/7, is sure to ease your appetite even after a Vegas-all-nighter.
