Following a busy week in Las Vegas leading up to tonight’s 62nd Miss USA competition, Donald Trump took Miss USA Nana Meriwether out to Simon Hammerstein’s renowned nightclub and theatrical experience, The ACT, late Saturday night to celebrate her final evening as the reigning Miss USA.

Joined by Miss Universe Olivia Culpo, former Miss Alabama Katherine Webb and Azerbaijani singer and businessman, Emin, the group also toasted Trump’s 67th birthday, which was Friday.

Trump and his group of nearly 50 guests were seen enjoying The ACT’s performances from the center of the action, on the floor beneath the main stage.

Before entering The ACT, Trump stopped to pose for photographs with Culpo. Trump was dressed in a navy blue suit and pink tie, and Culpo looked stunning in a silver beaded Sherri Hill cocktail dress and silver pumps.

The ACT is a 15,000-square-foot, multi-level nightclub which merges world class late-night entertainment and an exclusive clientele. Guests experience the action unfold from the stage into the party, blurring the line between performance and reality.
