Nite Bite: DJ Skribble joins roster of Vegas resident DJs
Fri, Feb 12, 2010 (3:37 p.m.)
Remember when you used to party at Studio 54 all the time? There’s a new reason for clubbers to go back to the MGM Grand’s nightclub thanks to celebrity DJ Skribble.
Beginning March 6, the turntabilist popular with the party people starts his weekly Saturday night event titled, “Freakshow.” The two-story venue will be renovated into a modern-day circus for all the freaks to play in … wait, circus? Hmm… that appears to be a popular theme for 2010 as the just announced “The Cat’s Meow” with Felix da Housecat also has a circus theme and begins March 22. (No word on whether Circus Circus is planning a nightclub event now, or if Cirque du Soleil is at all threatened by this new trend.) Who will take center ring? Does it even matter? We’ve got some partying to do!
During the late 1970s Studio 54 in Manhattan was the ultimate destination in hedonistic nightlife, so it only makes sense that the local reincarnation of New York’s famous nightclub is a perfect fit in Vegas. While there may not be cocaine and cash stuffed in the walls, this club certainly knows a thing or two about excess. Sprawling a massive 22,000 square feet with four dance floors to get your groove on, Studio 54 is full of nods to the original. From the signature disco ball still spinning from the ceiling to the huge black and white photographs taken at the NY venue, there is no doubt where the club gets its inspiration. But while the interior features décor synonymous with the original Studio 54, there’s nothing outdated about it. In 2005 the club underwent a complete remodel, and today aerialists contort above your head, go-go dancers writhe to the beat and the dance floor literally pulses with energy. Dress to impress for a night out here, after all it is Studio 54.
