DRAI’S AFTER HOURS ON TUESDAY, OCT. 21

The Tuesday Night Party Moves Below Deck to
Drai’s After Hours at The Cromwell

Yacht Club at Drai’s

Yacht Club at Drai’s sailed onto the Las Vegas club scene this past summer, and the late night swim party was an instant (and splashing) success at the new 35,000 square foot Drai’s Beach Club. Today, the days are turning shorter and the night’s cooler, and the Drai’s team is set to tee off a new Tuesday night tradition, Country Club. Premiering at Drai’s famed After Hours nightclub located underground at The Cromwell, Country Club takes the Tuesday night party and moves it below deck beginning on Tuesday, Oct. 21.

Country Club will make its Las Vegas debut inviting guests to swap their summer bikini’s and board shorts for their best country club chic gear, plaid shorts and pleated skirts. Since creating the after-hours concept in Las Vegas more than 15 years ago, the famed below ground venue will now welcome guests to Las Vegas’ most exclusive club, which will open its doors at 10:00 p.m. (only on Tuesday nights).

In the tradition of the greatest golf movie ever made, Caddy Shack, Country Club at Drai’s will no doubt become an instant classic – filled with incomparable characters, stylish garb and of course, Drai’s version of the ultimate golf/country club inspired party.

“We are channeling “Bushwood” and putting our own Drai’s twist on it,” said Managing Partner Ryan Craig. “We are looking forward to bringing the Tuesday night party downstairs and throwing a campy and sexy party that is sure to make Ty Webb and Al Czervik proud.”

Including: Eric Prydz, Adventure Club, Showtek and DVBBS

Las Vegas, long recognized as the dominant force for setting the trends in nightlife and music, took another giant step forward today when Victor Drai announced he will celebrate the opening of his 65,000 square foot Drai’s Beach Club • Nightclub at The Cromwell Las Vegas by tapping an exciting and diverse mix of resident DJ’s to perform at the state-of-the-art club which opens this Memorial Day weekend. Hailing from all corners of the globe including the U.S., Sweden, Australia, the Netherlands, Russia, Canada and Italy, the roster of resident DJ’s featured at the newly minted club represents the most exciting group of performers on the scene today.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled with the line-up of Resident Artists we will be featuring at Drai’s,” explains Alex Soifer, talent buyer for Drai’s. “Victor’s goal is to showcase the most talented, ground-breaking artists from around the world and provide them with a dramatic and electrifying setting that is unrivaled in Las Vegas – day and night.” “We are assembling a line-up that is reflective of what is on the top of the charts right now,” adds Victor Drai. “These are the artists that get people onto the dance floor – now they will be live here in Las Vegas performing in a venue that will both awe and inspire. It is a going to be a true 360 degree music and social experience.”

In addition to Eric Prydz, Adventure Club, Showtek and DVBBS, the Resident Artist line-up includes:

Soifer has assembled a roster of talent that crosses the musical spectrum and will appeal to music fans and club-goers of all types.

Instead, you are going to be in the middle of the biggest dance party on the Strip.”

Set 11 stories above the iconic Las Vegas Strip atop The Cromwell (the Strip’s first stand alone boutique hotel), Drai’s Beach Club • Nightclub has been meticulously designed by Victor Drai with the intention to completely transform the nightclub and nightlife scene in Las Vegas. Since envisioning his rooftop dream, Drai was determined to provide his artists and his guests with a venue like non-other in Las Vegas (or the world). Drai’s features Las Vegas’ only rooftop pool and deck with an indoor/outdoor club, panoramic views of the entire Las Vegas Strip and a concept where the DJ, club and guests are intertwined in a unified experience from sun-up to dusk back to dawn.

 

 “I’ve been dreaming about a rooftop experience for 15 years,” notes Victor Drai.  “Now with The Cromwell, I’m making that dream a reality.  It’s sophisticated, it’s sexy it’s everything people love about coming to Las Vegas.  Now they will get to experience it all from a spectacular rooftop setting with the best DJ’s in the business.” “We have a venue that will showcase some of the best DJ’s in the world at transitional points in their careers,” adds Drai’s partner, Michael Gruber. “The only difference is that they are part of a whole experience for the consumer, rather than being the sole experience. We believe that each one brings something special, and the whole experience is greater than the sum of the parts.”

 

Drai’s also features nine exclusive VIP Bungalows sharing five elevated pools and 15 luxury mezzanine level cabanas with their own mezzanine level pool overlooking the venue and the city below. Each VIP Bungalow also features its own shower and restroom, offering guests privacy while still being in the middle of all the action.

In a city known for setting the standard for spectacular pools and parties, the bar is about to be raised even higher (literally) this summer with the opening of Drai’s Beach Club in Las Vegas, perched 11 stories above the Strip atop The Cromwell.  With unobstructed views of Las Vegas Blvd. and never-ending sunshine on two levels, the 35,000 square foot Drai’s Beach Club is both an architectural and visual wonder featuring a 360-degree experience with multiple pools, tantalizing cocktails, renowned DJs, VIP luxury cabanas and top-of-the-line gourmet food.  Adding to the already spectacular scenery are ten, 35-foot palm trees (which were recently hoisted by crane to the roof above) which will offer guests ample shade when desired.

The wow factor for hotel guests begins the minute they disembark from the hotel’s elevator where they will be met with never-before-seen views emanating from the corner of Flamingo and Las Vegas Blvd. The sparkling new pools are the highlight of the expansive rooftop venue, but the pools share equal billing with the unique vantage point overlooking Caesars Palace and the Bellagio fountains to the west, Bally’s and the Las Vegas Strip to the south and the impressive row of hotels to the north. Located directly above Las Vegas Blvd., Drai’s Beach Club will also be home to an endless day of sun – never disappearing behind hotel towers or buildings. While there are countless perks for staying at The Cromwell, having exclusive guest access to the city’s most splash-worthy new pools is going to be top of the list.


Split into two levels, Drai’s Beach Club is designed to be sexy, sophisticated and most importantly, social. No feature or guest amenity has been forgotten and the Beach Club will cater to every level of pool reveler:

• Two lower level main pools
• Central wet deck and perimeter seating
• 40 poolside day beds
• Nine exclusive VIP Bungalows sharing five elevated pools
• 15 luxury mezzanine level cabanas with private pool with private shower/restroom
• Two full bars
• Elevated DJ booth
• Ten 35-foot natural palm trees
• Unobstructed sunlight and views
• Drai’s unparalleled service

“I’ve been dreaming of building a day/night club for the past 15 years,” explains Victor Drai. “With the creation of The Cromwell, the opportunity finally arrived to make my dream a reality. The Beach Club and pools at Drai’s Beach Club will be like nothing that exists in Las Vegas. The size, scope and attention to detail, design and guest experience has driven our concept. I always build my venues so that there is a ‘wow’ factor from the minute you arrive. When a guest steps off the elevator, they are going to marvel at what we have built and the never before-seen-view will provide an unforgettable experience.”

Drai’s Beach Club
Drai’s Beach Club is located on the roof at The Cromwell, the Strip’s first stand-alone boutique hotel and casino. Hotel guests of The Cromwell will enjoy the opportunity to experience this one-of-a-kind rooftop pool daily from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. The unique pool experience becomes Drai’s Beach Club Friday – Sunday from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. and transforms into Drai’s Nightclub Thursday – Sunday at 10 p.m.

Chef Giada De Laurentiis to Open First Restaurant at Gansevoort Las Vegas, 2014

Gansevoort Las Vegas
Chef Giada De Laurentiis to Open Very First Restaurant at
Gansevoort Las Vegas, Set to Open Early 2014
Chef, author and television personality Giada De Laurentiis plans to open her very first restaurant in early 2014 at the upcoming and all-new luxury lifestyle resort Gansevoort Las Vegas. This innovative concept is expected to open in early 2014 in conjunction with the hotel and casino.

 

Located in the heart of the dynamic city of Las Vegas, De Laurentiis’ outlet will become the cornerstone of the hip and luxurious destination, located on the second level above the casino floor. This outlet will boast al fresco dining and breathtaking views of the Las Vegas Strip and the Bellagio fountains.

 

“Ever since I was a little girl hanging out at my grandfather’s restaurant, I’ve dreamed of having a restaurant of my own,” says De Laurentiis. “I’ve held back on past opportunities because I really wanted to be ready for the responsibility and challenges that come with a restaurant. Now, I couldn’t be more excited about working with Gansevoort Las Vegas and Caesars Entertainment to turn this dream into a delicious reality. The location, the al fresco dining and the views were just too good to pass up!”

 

De Laurentiis’ cuisine will embrace her birthplace of Rome, mirroring her passion for Italian cooking with lighter, Californian influences. Guests can enjoy her signature dishes made famous through her many cookbooks and “Food Network” television shows, along with uniquely crafted family recipes that focus on quality ingredients and great flavors.
Guests will be greeted with delicious aromas of bread baking along with a signature antipasto station, a first for Italian eateries on the Strip. The appeal of an open and airy kitchen will set the space apart giving guests the opportunity to watch chefs prepare the specialty pasta of the day, create beautiful flatbreads and bake divine desserts.

 

“Gansevoort Las Vegas will be a completely unique boutique resort experience and will bring a new level of social excitement to the Las Vegas Strip. Drai’s Beach Club and Nightclub, Drai’s After Hours, the signature lobby bar, and now Giada’s very first restaurant, are certain to set the destination apart,” said Tariq Shaukat, chief marketing officer for Caesars Entertainment.  “Giada’s exuberant warm personality and dynamic style will undoubtedly result in a restaurant that will not only be a perfect match for the experience we are creating, but also will become a destination in itself.”

 

With De Laurentiis’ vision in mind, the restaurant will be a completely new build-out, revealing a modern, yet sleek design with clean lines and pops of color.  Los Angeles-based Studio Collective, whose prestigious portfolio includes several well-known hospitality venues including Thompson Hotel in Beverly Hills and Hyde Lounge at The Staples Center, will lead the overall design. The restaurant space will extend over the pedestrian walkway below, featuring large glass windows with daytime and nighttime views of the Strip. The overall design will bring forth a comfortable, warm and welcoming charm with natural light and unique energy. Posh living room-style furniture will provide a cozy space for guests to relax, while views of the open kitchen from the bar will create an air of excitement. Private dining room space will also be available for larger parties or group functions.

 

“Giada is a gem,” said Caesars Entertainment Regional Vice President of Food and Beverage Jeffrey Frederick. “She’s the first female celebrity chef to join the Caesars Entertainment family in Las Vegas and will fit right in with our lineup of many renowned chefs including Bobby Flay, Gordon Ramsay, Nobu Matsuhisa and Guy Savoy. Finally fans will experience firsthand Giada’s style and sophistication via her restaurant’s ambiance and cuisine.”

 

The new restaurant will be open daily for lunch and dinner and will accommodate nearly 300 guests.
