Sighting: Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Miles Teller, Theo James and More Spotted at Hakkasan Las Vegas Restaurant and Nightclub – Saturday, Feb. 22

Last evening (Saturday, Feb. 22) the stars came out to Hakkasan Las Vegas Nightclub at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. Spotted were “Pitch Perfect” co-stars and gal pals, Anna Kendrick and Brittany Snow, who held court at a VIP table on the main stage next to the DJ booth.   Arriving just before midnight, the two enjoyed themselves while sipping champagne and cocktails and showing off their best dance moves with friends to the high-energy set by Hakkasan featured artists, Dada Life.

At another table nearby, “That Awkward Moment” actor Miles Teller was spotted celebrating his birthday, just days after turning 27. Joined with a large entourage that included Chase Crawford, the party arrived after midnight and headed to the nightclub’s main room, where they immediately kicked off the festivities and began dancing.  Around 1:00 a.m., Teller was presented with a three-tier cake as confetti flew through the air and his name took over the eye-catching floor-to-ceiling LED screen.  The cake, decorated with a “Fantastic Four” theme, in honor of his newly announced role as Mr. Fantastic in the upcoming reboot, was shared by all, including his girlfriend, who concluded the cake presentation by giving her man a kiss.

Also in attendance was Teller’s “Divergent” co-star and UK heartthrob, Theo James.  Seated on the main stage at a VIP table next to Kendrick and Snow, James was seen with girlfriend Ruth Kearney and a small group of friends. The crew spent the evening dancing and mingling and even got a visit by Snow as she joined their table to chat for a bit.

Earlier in the evening, Hakkasan Las Vegas Restaurant was also the place to see and be seen, as all of the above enjoyed the restaurants signature bites and libations.  Close girlfriends Kendrick and Snow were seen in high spirits, sipping on signature Zesty Martini and Chinese Mule cocktails as they dined on Vegetarian steamed dim sum platters and Hakka noodles with mushrooms and Chinese chives with several of their friends.

Teller also began his  birthday celebration with Crawford and friends at the modern Cantonese hot spot, indulging in the Mongolian-style beef tenderloin and the Jasmine tea smoked beef short ribs. The group paired their dishes with a sake and wine selection from the venue’s extensive list.

And a table away, seen enjoying the company of three other acquaintances, was up-and-coming James. The actor and his group savored on classics such as the Crispy duck salad, Roasted Silver Cod with Champagne and Chinese honey among others.

The weekend

Last night, (Monday, Dec. 30) PURE Nightclub at Caesars Palace kicked off the New Year’s festivities with a live performance by R&B phenomenon The Weeknd. The award-winning hot spot opened its doors for a very special affair to welcome the return of the talented recording artist.

Arriving around 1 a.m. the sultry Canadian sensation, also known as Abel Tesfaye, made his way to his VIP booth on the main stage while he took in the sights of the packed room. Moments later, the highly acclaimed lyricist took center stage as he introduced himself and took over the mic, leaving his fans in awe. “I go by the name of The Weeknd,” he stated, “I came all the way from Toronto to party with you all tonight.” The nightclub roared with excitement as he mentioned to the crowd that he was celebrating one of this friend’s birthdays and gave a special shout out to his personal DJ XO.

He kicked off the night with his hit “I’m Good,” where following the song informed the crowd that it was his first time performing the track in Las Vegas. The Weeknd had his fans on their feet as he led into “Live For,” and “Crew Love,” both songs whom he worked with fellow Canadian and GRAMMY Award-winning rapper Drake to produce. To close out his memorable performance, the R&B singer told the crowd that he’d be back soon to Sin City and fittingly his fans would enjoy his last song of the night “Remember You.”

The Weeknd thanked his admirers for coming out as he took the time to mingle with a few lucky ladies before heading back to his table. Also in attendance, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White, was seen in high spirits sipping cocktails with friends and taking in the performance from his VIP table.

Following his performance at PURE Nightclub, The Weeknd made his way to Ling Ling Club located inside Hakkasan Las Vegas at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino where hundreds of party patrons waited in anticipation to catch a glimpse of the music icon. As celebrated DJ Irie manned the decks, he announced the arrival of the artist and the entire nightclub was on their feet eagerly watching for the artist to make his introduction. Appearing in the DJ booth, The Weeknd hopped on the mic to address his fans and began to put on his second special performance of the evening. Afterwards he thanked his fans for their support and made his way back to his VIP booth to mingle with fans and party the night away in true Las Vegas fashion.

Hakkasan Las Vegas at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino celebrated Labor Day Weekend with a five-day, action-packed event series, featuring some of the most notable names in dance music including (in event order) Steve Aoki, Hardwell, Calvin Harris, music icon Moby and Tiësto.

The holiday weekend was in full force as Las Vegas’ most buzzed-about nightclub kept the fun going all weekend long.  Kicking off the weekend of festivities Thursday, Aug. 29, was GRAMMY Award-nominated artist Steve Aoki as he spun his classic sounds while entertaining the crowd with his signature antics and customized props from cake-throwing and champagne-spraying, to his C02 hand guns and Indian “Winnetou style” head piece that is fully covered with color changing LED lights – all part of the fun of his signature Hakkasan party, “Neon Future.” 

Friday, Aug. 30, Dutch DJ and producer Hardwell took to the tables to delight guests with his blend of progressive and electro-house beats as Netherlands “mash up maestro” Dannic closed out the powerful evening . The dynamic two-some had fans dancing all night long as they put on a pulsating performance for clubgoers.

Continuing to thrill guests with an unparalleled weekend of music  Saturday, Aug. 31, was GRAMMY-Award winning mega-producer and DJ, Calvin Harris, joined by English progressive house DJ Michael Woods. The duo kept the energy up in the main room each with vibrant sets which included their fan-favorite beats.

The most legendary moment of the Labor Day celebrations took place Sunday, Sept. 1, when Hakkasan guests received a special treat as renowned music icon Moby delighted the crowd with an exclusive one-off performancethe first time the GRAMMY Award-nominated artist has performed at the venue. With his 11th studio album “Innocents” set to be released in early October, the legendary musician took a short break from his international tour appearing in Sin City for the first time since 2009.

Wrapping up the weekend of revelry  Monday, Sept. 2, crowd-pleasing Tiësto made the most of the extended weekend’s final moments in a show-stopping DJ set with Tony Arzadon. 

Hakkasan’s “open format” club area, the Ling Ling Club, also hosted a wide array of DJ talent throughout the weekend.  Thursday, Aug. 29, guests were delighted by performances from special guest DJ Sid Vicious; Friday, Aug. 30 featured hip-hop legend DJ Ruckus and Saturday, Aug. 31 renowned DJ Irie as they all took turns manning the decks while spinning hard-hitting tracks for partygoers.

Photos: Hakkasan Las Vegas Welcomes Floyd Mayweather and Damon & Marlon Wayans – Friday, July 26

Last night, Friday July 26, Floyd Mayweather, boxing’s reigning pound for pound king, celebrated his friend’s birthday dining at Hakkasan Las Vegas inside MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. Mayweather arrived to the restaurant with a group of 40 friends just after 9 p.m. and dined on Hakkasan signature items such as the Stir-fry black pepper beef ribeye with merlot, Mongolian style beef tenderloin, Hakka steamed dim sum platter and more. Leaving his tough exterior in the ring, Mayweather was instead seen in high spirits, laughing and talking with the group, while toasting to the birthday with glasses of champagne.

Also spotted at Hakkasan Nightclub last night were actors and comedians Damon and Marlon Wayans, who were celebrating Marlon’s birthday with a group of five friends in the Ling Ling Club. Arriving around 12:30 a.m., the group was seen taking shots, dancing to the music and inviting a few lucky ladies to join them at their table. Clearly in a very celebratory mood, Marlon hopped on the mic and announced his birthday, as well as his stand-up performance the following night. Towards the end of the evening, clubgoers cheered as a cake was brought out to Marlon’s table, complete with confetti and Hakkasan light batons. Damon, Marlon and friends continued to sip cocktails throughout the night before making their way out of the nightlife mecca around 2:30 a.m.

Meanwhile, upstairs in Hakkasan’s main room, clubgoers danced late into the night to the hits of resident DJ deadmau5 and his two new signature mau5bots.
