Recap: Hakkasan Nightclub Forbidden City: Rise of The Empress – Halloween Weekend

Halloween weekend at Hakkasan Nightclub at MGM Grand was full of action-packed energy as thousands of partygoers assembled to enter the realm of the Forbidden City alongside unrivaled talent including resident DJs Calvin Harris and Tiësto, among others. The hot spot fully transformed into the Forbidden City as detailed experiences including seductive areal acts, shimmering dancers, playful décor and alluring light shows set the scene for an unforgettable four-day bash. In addition to the non-stop entertainment, the nightspot hosted three nights of sultry costume contests where multiple lucky winners were crowned as the “sexiest costumes” in Las Vegas and took home impressive prizes each night, totaling $60,000.

 

Kicking off Hakkasan Nightclub’s Rise of The Empress Halloween weekend was none other than famed DJ Calvin Harris, Thursday, Oct. 30. Harris took over the decks and played his chart-toping hits until the early hours of the morning, giving fans sweet nothings instead of ghoulish tricks. Gold-clad dancers played as eye-catching attractions to set the scene for what turned out to be a night full of mischief and mayhem as some lucky ladies were crowned as winners for the awaited costume contest.

 

Hakkasan Nightclub pulled out all the tricks as Halloween night arrived, Friday, Oct. 31. The Hakkasan Empress was ready to rule over her empire with the help from resident DJ Tiësto and young artist Danny Avila, who took part in the festivities with spooky face art to command the crowd. The party was amped up during the costume contest where party patrons aided in voting for the lucky winners. Heightening the energy even more, Tiësto continued to play his popular tracks such as “Red Lights” and “Wasted” which had clubgoers dancing into the night alongside the Empress in her Forbidden City. The Ling Ling Club was also a party of its own all night with DJ Ruckus spinning beats for the special occasion.

 

As the madness continued, the popular destination brought the three-day costume contest to a close with sounds provided by the highly energetic DJ Afrojack, Saturday, Nov. 1. In awe of the Forbidden City, the renowned artist took a second to take in the atmosphere before letting loose and cranking up the party by taking advantage of the specially installed dragons above the DJ booth that exhaled expansive amounts of CO2 whenever he demanded. Afrojack had partygoers on their feet and confetti in the air all night long for an evening to remember. Hakkasan also welcomed back DJ and producer Questlove to the nightlife mecca for a night of action-packed fun in the Ling Ling Club.

 

Closing out the final night of the Rise of The Empress celebration was none other than cake-slinging DJ Steve Aoki with help from The Chainsmokers, Sunday, Nov. 2. Three previous nights of partying did not scare away any clubgoers as the nightlife mecca was kicked into high gear to bid farewell to The Forbidden City with partygoers dressed up for one last bash of Halloween debauchery. Aoki ensured a stimulating night as he served up his iconic cake to a few enthusiastic fans while spinning tracks from his new album Neon Future. He even brought out his raft and let a few fans take part in his tradition by riding the waves of the crowd. After four nights of Halloween mayhem, The Forbidden City has finally been laid to rest and normalcy has been restored in the nightlife destination.

Hakkasan Las Vegas Restaurant and Nightclub at MGM Grand was filled with excitement last night as GRAMMY Award-winning country artist LeAnn Rimes and husband Eddie Cibrian were spotted enjoying an evening out at one of Vegas’ leading nighttime destinations, Saturday, May 10. In town to perform a gig earlier in the evening, the talented singer was joined by a number of close friends and family including her mother Belinda Butler Rimes and father Wilbur Rimes as they celebrated a successful show.

As their night began, the stunning couple was seen in good spirits as they arrived with their party to Hakkasan Restaurant around 11 p.m. Fully enjoying their time the group indulged on a number of Hakkasan’s signature dishes including Hakka steamed dim sum platter and pan-seared Shanghai dumplings while sipping on The Hakka – the destination’s most popular specialty cocktail. Laughing, taking photos with one another and engaging in conversation, the party made the most out of their dining experience before making their way up to the nightclub.

Nearing 1 a.m., the adoring pair and their guests arrived at the fourth level of the nightlife complex where they took their seats on the main stage. In awe of the energy from the main room, the group was filled with excitement as they took in the sights of the packed dance floor while rising DJ duo The Chainsmokers manned the decks and spun their chart-topping hit “#SELFIE.” As the evening went on and headlining artist Steve Aoki took over the turntables, Rimes and Cibrian were spotted dancing with one another and shared a romantic champagne toast. The group continued their celebratory evening before making their way out of the iconic nighttime destination around 3 a.m.

Photos: Hakkasan Las Vegas Restaurant Celebrates One-Year Anniversary

Last night (Thursday, April 24, 2014), Hakkasan Las Vegas Restaurant inside MGM Grand Hotel & Casino kicked off the venue’s one-year anniversary celebrations as it welcomed an exclusive VIP event hosted by VEGAS Magazine. The city’s most widely influential publication was on hand to throw a celebratory party boasting the city’s most distinguished guest list. A progressive evening, which started in the architecturally stunning restaurant space, took more than 200 VIPs on a sensual journey as guests experienced the tastes, sights, smells and sounds of Hakkasan.

Greeted upon arrival by traditional Chinese lion dancers moving to festive drums, guests were led into Hakkasan restaurant to experience a vibrant party space filled with intriguing interactive and culinary elements. Beyond its signature latticework caging and tucked away in its Calcutta marble inlays and wood corridors, Hakkasan restaurant presented many surprises for its visitors including a branded photo booth area, were enticed by the beautiful movements of white dragon atmosphere dancers and Chinese calligraphers offered live-painted Chinese characters of wisdom. The event’s guest of honor: Lady Hakkasan was adorned in a custom Hakkasan branded gown, made entirely from red envelopes (a symbol of good luck and fortune). Lady Hakkasan set the evening’s elegant tone by delicately presenting gifts to all who interacted with her.

Furthermore, culinary stations were positioned throughout the space to highlight some of Hakkasan’s distinctive and modern Cantonese cuisine. A Peking duck station featured chefs slicing and serving its famed dish, a mixology station showcasing Hakkasan’s Iron Rose, Buddah’s Palm and Virgin Hakka were crafted in front of the intrigued guests and an interactive dessert display impressed the foodies who attended as its house made macarons and customized chocolate mignardises were the talk of the evening.

After experiencing the extravagant celebration inside the restaurant space, invitees advanced up to the exclusive Ling Ling Lounge, located on the venue’s third-level, for a private cocktail reception. The party continued in the main room of the nightclub where Steve Aoki, fresh off the announcement of his highly anticipated upcoming new album “Neon Future I,” brought his over-the-top party to the venue to commemorate an unforgettable kick-off to anniversary weekend celebrations.
