Now with a full band and signed deal with Capitol Records / Lazy Hooks, this duo has been playing festivals internationally and is preparing for their upcoming Drai’s LIVE residency.

Over the past year, Drai’s Beachclub • Nightclub has become Las Vegas’ nightlife venue of choice for exclusive live concert performances from artists such as The Weeknd, Iggy Azalea, J. Cole, Chromeo, Chris Brown and many others. At Drai’s LIVE, the live music/concert experience is seamlessly integrated into the day life and nightlife experiences at Drai’s, featuring full-length concerts by arena-level musicians in a more close-up and vibrant atmosphere coupled with high energy DJ sets before and after the show.

ATOP THE CROMWELL EVERY TUESDAY BEGINNING APRIL 21

Captains of the Ship Revealed for First Five Weeks!

Drench Yourself in Las Vegas’ Hottest Nighttime Nautical Pool Party

drais
After its maiden voyage last summer, Yacht Club at Drai’s Beachclub • Nightclub is afloat once again on top of The Cromwell in the heart of Las Vegas Boulevard. Taking off on Tuesday, April 21, the city’s most in-demand nocturnal pool party will recur all summer long every Tuesday night with explosive DJ sets and live concerts, thirst-quenching libations, insane party packages and unmatched views of the iconic Las Vegas Strip.

Sailing steadfast right from the start, Drai’s has onboarded world-renowned captains to help drop the anchors (and the beats). Leading the charge on opening night is Drai’s resident DJ duo ADVENTURE CLUB; following that, another Drai’s resident MAKJ will make his debut on April 28; Cinco De Mayo is certain to rock the boat with a full-length live concert from Chris Brown on his birthday (May 5) plus DJ Sourmilk on the turntables; taking the wheel on May 12 is Sidney Samson & Friends; and resident DJ Borgeous will command the decks on May 19.
Yacht Club
Taking place on Drai’s 30,000 square foot outdoor pool playground, Yacht Club is deck-ed out with an outdoor DJ booth and live performance area; two main pools; VIP bungalows sharing five private pools; 15 luxury mezzanine level cabanas each equipped with an HD TV, private restrooms with showers, and their own mezzanine level pool; two full service bars and more. From front to back and port to starboard, this expansive beachclub setting is the perfect place to splash and dance under the moonlight.

For the whales out there, Drai’s offers a specially crafted Rooftop Regatta menu featuring packages from $250,000 and up, culminating with the most extravagant nightlife package Las Vegas has seen yet: The Moby Dick. Cashing in at $1 million, The Moby Dick will get you a literal boatload of stuff including: one (1) private yacht charter for you and 40 of your friends which can launch from Miami, New York, Los Angeles, Orange County or San Francisco; two (2) 180-second self-detonated rooftop firework displays; 400 bottles of spray champagne; 100 bottles of Dom Pérignon Brut Luminous; and two varieties of Ace of Spades champagne – one 30-liter Brut Midas and one 15-liter Rosé Nebuchadnezzar.

Yacht Club is presented this year with sponsoring partner Groove Cruise. Groove Cruise began when 125 friends went on a cruise together in 2004 and the concept has evolved into the world’s largest fully charted dance music cruise experience. Throughout the season, Groove Cruise will have significant presence at Yacht Club and the partnership will culminate in a multi-day cruise where Drai’s will host a series of parties on the boat. The official Groove Cruise party will take place in October and depart from LA.

drais beachclub
Drai’s Beachclub & Nightclub in Las Vegas has become infamous for the intoxicating nightlife, DJ’s and all-night parties, and now Drai’s has created a new daytime yin to the night’s usual yang – it’s called Drai’s Beach; a high-altitude midweek refresher for those 21 and over featuring Drai’s signature pools, rooftop palm trees and now, new day-long best-value bottle service every Monday-Thursday from 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

With its ultra-lounge ambiance, all day sun and Drai’s distinctive amenities, Drai’s Beach delivers to its guests (from The Cromwell, other hotels or locals) a rooftop haven with a relaxed point-of-view; one that also comes with unmatched sightlines of the Las Vegas Strip, the picturesque Red Rock mountains and even the daily fountain show at the Bellagio.

Holborn and TA Global Bring Internationally Renowned Restaurant, Nightclub and Fitness Club to Trump International Hotel & Tower® Vancouver

Together with world-class brands, Trump Vancouver will redefine entertainment in Canada’s most livable city

Holborn Group and TA Global Bhd. announced today that they have signed new business partnerships for Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver, securing the management of the development’s restaurant and nightclub, as well as access to a fitness club which will be situated adjacent to Trump Vancouver. World class brands Mott 32, Drai’s and Equinox will offer residents and guests of the development the opportunity to experience internationally renowned dining, entertainment and fitness.

Mott 32 was created by Malcolm Wood and Xuan Mu, owners of Maximal Concepts – the most awarded restaurant group in Asia. Mott 32 will bring its distinguished modern Chinese cuisine to Vancouver – a first in North America – with an emphasis on farm-to-table cooking. The restaurant is the winner of countless category awards in Asia including the much-fabled Hong Kong Tatler’s “Best New Restaurant” 2014/15 and the 2014 INSIDE World Festival of Interiors, “World Interior of the Year.” Embracing flavours and the finest ingredients from Asia and the world, Mott 32’s cuisine is principally Cantonese with signature Sichuan and Beijing dishes including Peking duck. Named after 32 Mott Street, New York City’s first Chinese convenience store which opened in 1891, Mott 32 will bring a vibrant and creative dining experience to Vancouver.

With Drai’s Beach Club & Nightclub and Drai’s Afterhours in Las Vegas, Drai’s will re-invigorate the nightlife scene in Vancouver as managers of Trump Vancouver’s dayclub-nightclub. Under the guidance of renowned entrepreneur Victor Drai, the nightclub’s meticulous attention to detail, impressive LED lighting systems, and modern technology will fuse to create a sensual, multi-sensory expe­rience unlike any other in Vancouver.

Equinox, the high performance fitness and lifestyle leader, will open adjacent to Trump Vancouver. Equinox will provide its best-in-class programming and service offerings. Inside the facility, its internationally acclaimed instructors will lead a full range of yoga, cycling, Pilates, boxing and innovative signature programming such as Barre Burn, MetCon3, Shockwave, Elimin8tor, and Precision Running. Equinox’s fitness floor will offer cardio, strength and stretch areas creating an inspirational setting where members can workout on their own, or with one of Equinox’s highly skilled personal trainers.

“As a local developer, we are thrilled to bring these renowned brands to Vancouver for the first time,” said Joo Kim Tiah, CEO and President of Holborn Group, the developer of Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver. “Mott 32, Drai’s and Equinox share our vision to provide those living in this world-class city with the highest level of service.”

“Offering residents and guests access to first-class dining and entertainment puts Trump Vancouver at the forefront of luxury in Vancouver,” added Donald Trump Jr., Executive Vice President, The Trump Organization. “Alongside Trump Spa by Ivanka, London Air Services and Rolls-Royce, we are proud to add Mott 32 and Drai’s to our roster of unparalleled amenities.”

In addition to Mott 32 and Drai’s, with full access to Equinox, the premium $360-million Arthur Erickson-designed world-class hotel and residence will feature 147 guest rooms, Trump Spa by Ivanka and 15,000 square feet of meeting and event space. Above the hotel will be 217 luxury residences, offering residents spectacular views of the North Shore and beyond.

Sales for the residential suites are over 70% sold, with project completion expected in summer 2016.

Mott 32 is named after 32 Mott St. in New York. 32 Mott St. was the first ever Chinese convenience store to open in 1891 and was the nucleus for what is now a vibrant Chinatown in one of the most exciting cities in the world. Mott 32 is a celebration of Hong Kong culture and cuisine, which thanks to the bravery of families, such as those who left Hong Kong in 1891 to open 32 Mott St., is now a global phenomenon.
