Defected in the House touches base at Club Nikki
Tue, May 31, 2011 (5:50 p.m.)
The grand opening weekend of Club Nikki included the Defected in the House party as well as a live performance by Jamie Foxx.
Staying true to its status as one of the world’s most famous house music venues, the brand new Nikki Beach at the whitewashed Tropicana spent part of opening/Memorial Day Weekend hosting Defected in the House, an ongoing party from U.K. label Defected Records.
Saturday night, resident DJ and Music Director Roman Rosati opened for Defected artists ATFC and Rae (who sang while DJing), both flown in from Europe to promote the new residency. The Defected name was plastered about the club, and LED chandeliers over the dancefloor frequently flashed the label’s trademark “D.”
After Rosati warmed up the crowd with some commercial, old-school house, ATFC rocked the brand new space for two hours. But I wasn’t sure that the crowd knew what to do with real house music in a large, Las Vegas club. Even with recognizable vocals from Top 40 divas peppered through the mix, they seemed slightly lost during this edition of the international party.
They’ll get another shot. Nikki Beach in the House, mixed by The Shapeshifters, is out June 20, with plans for the duo to play the next DITH installment in Vegas on June 25.
This multi-leveled and set on over one acre of Tropicana Las Vegas’ lush natural landscape, Nikki Beach brings the most exclusive beach club experience to Las Vegas. The beautiful and elegant design is inspired by South Beach, Marbella and St. Tropez.
Nikki Beach offers day beds so guests can sun themselves in the heart of the action, while signature white opium beds and teepee cabanas provide select guests a more secluded experience. All areas offer bottle and food service from expansive menus.
Besides the beautiful design, Nikki Beach is known for a sizzling blend of hot fashion, internationally-renowned DJs, Champagne spraying, exotic libations, sexy entertainment, more Champagne spraying and a stunning staff.
Amazing Sundays, the ultimate daylife party, features Champagne, live food stations, interactive entertainment, a group Champagne spray, and can be best described as the only way to end your weekend or start your week.
The best view in Las Vegas can only be found at Nikki Beach’s outdoor gaming area with blackjack tables overlooking the action.
