Over 235 entries were received for the 14 nightlife-related categories. A panel of judges each selected his or her top three choices and a calculation yielded the finalists and ultimately the winners.
Moreover, XS was named No. 1 in the rankings of the Top 100 Nightclubs by Nightclub & Bar Magazine. Sister nightclub Tryst came in at a more-than-respectable No. 5 in the rankings after taking second last year.
Members of XS ownership and management are scheduled to walk the red carpet at the Exhibit Hall at noon on Tuesday, March 9.
There will be a special VIP reception Wednesday, March 10 at 8 p.m. at Lavo inside the Palazzo in Las Vegas during the Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show, as well as a DJ Spin-Off that evening at 10 p.m. at Tao inside The Venetian.
The winners will be featured in the March issue of Nightclub & Bar Magazine as well as online at nightclub.com.
Designed with a European sensibility, XS is furnished in warm browns and gold. Tables with plush couches form concentric circles around a small dance floor, and a disco ball-inspired chandelier casts circles of flickering light onto the dark floor. Textures are everywhere – metallic snakeskin on the banquettes, ultra suede on the couches – and large pillars covered in mosaics of tiny mirrors reflect the space.
From the first steps inside, the club makes an impression. Along the entrance way the walls are rippled with the life-sized outlines of nude women. Pushing against the gold façade, they look as if they’re trying to fight their way out of the walls and into the party. Behind the bar, inverted female torsos, also in gold, highlight the walls while bartenders in shimmering corsets mix drinks in front.
When weather allows, the back wall of the club will open onto an adults-only pool for an indoor/outdoor party starting in the afternoon and continuing into the early morning hours.

You can go over the top with a $10,000 Ono cocktail. That's right, $10,000 for one drink. The cocktail comes with an 18-karat white gold necklace, with a Tahitian black pearl pendant. It's served in a jewel encrusted champagne flute and is a mix of rare Remy Martin Louis XIII Black Pearl cognac, Charles Heidsieck 1981 Champagne Charlie, fresh-squeezed orange juice, Sence rose nectar and apricot puree.
