Dip & Dance at Encore Beach Club “Days Go By” super fast when you’re having fun in the sun, but time really flies on the nightclub dancefloor. British house music trio Dirty Vegas supplies the sounds for EBC’s nighttime pool party, with cast members from Cirque du Soleil’s Zumanity playing host for the moonlit soiree. June 2, doors at 10 p.m., $40 men, $30 women, local ladies free.
Real World: Las Vegas Wrap Party at Gallery What? Not Vanity? That’s right—the RWLV cast celebrates the end of its 15 minutes (or in this case, three months) of fame at the Planet Hollywood nightspot. The drama might be sparse, as Cooke, Mike-Mike, bad-boy Adam and Bronx badass Naomi will be absent from this last hurrah. Get over it. Breaking cocktail glasses and club security escorts are sooo 25th season. June 3, doors at 10 p.m., $30 men, $20 women.
The Get Back at Beauty Bar After perusing the Arts District on First Friday, head to Fremont East and get your groove on. The Downtown watering hole’s funky soul dance party features special guest Rich Medina with residents John Doe, Danny Boy, Phoreyz, Aurajin, 8-bits, Roccanova, Shred and Johnny Rox also turning the tables. June 3, 10 p.m., $10 men, $5 women.
Mark Ballas at Liquid What’s a two-time Dancing With the Stars champion to do when handed third place? Party in Vegas, of course! Ballas celebrates his 25th birthday at the Aria dayclub’s installment of Nivea for Men’s “Look Like You Give a Damn” weekend, with sounds supplied by David Christian. June 4, doors at 11 a.m., $40 men, $20 women.
Pussycat Dolls Burlesque Saloon Grand Opening With burlesque’s popularity rapidly rising (see: our cover), it was only a matter of time before an entire venue devoted to it joined the scene. Unleash your inner Pussycat Doll on one of the saloon’s stripper poles or elevated platforms while sex symbol Carmen Electra christens the lounge’s stage with a live performance. June 4, doors at 9 p.m., $20 men, $10 women, local ladies free.
Karina Smirnoff at Tao & Tao Beach You might be surprised to learn the professional ballroom dancer has never received that hideous Dancing With the Stars mirror ball trophy. Even more surprising? She recently bared all as Playboy’s May cover model. Catch a glimpse of the Ukrainian beauty (clothed) as she hosts day and night at the Venetian. Tao Beach: June 4, doors at 10 a.m., $30 men, $20 women, local ladies free. Tao: June 4, doors at 10 p.m., $30 men, $20 women, local ladies free.
Nick Cannon DJs at Chateau Mimi’s man is back. The actor, comedian and newly minted father (to a pair of twins!) returns to the Boulevard to spin some sensational sounds at the Paris nightspot. June 4, doors at 10 p.m., $30 men, $20 women.
S&M Sundays at Eve Holly’s World star and past Playboy Playmate of the Year Jayde Nicole hosts the launch of Eve’s new weekly event. Tweet #SMSunday to @EveNightclub for reduced admission. June 5, doors at 10:30 p.m., $30 men, $20 women (with tweet: $20 men, $10 women).
