February 4th: a Beginning and an End

Wynn made official Jan. 30 what seemed to be just a matter of course after his Jan. 7 gig, confirming that Tiësto will play exclusively at XS, Surrender and Encore Beach Club in 2012. His first official date will be Feb. 4. … Speaking of Feb. 4, that’s the last night Studio 54 will be in operation, and the final-bash guest star will be Grammy-host-to-be LL Cool J. … For its second classic hip-hop performance, downtown nostalgia engine Insert Coin(s) brought in Talib Kweli on Jan. 26. Previously, De La Soul did a gig there Jan. 11. Maybe LL will stop by to do “Radio” and bring this thing full circle.

Get your chopsticks and your glow sticks (or your glowing chopsticks) ready. Studio 54 will close Feb. 5, the space going dark for about 10 months until December while Angel Management Group transforms it into fine dining/nightlife hybrid Hakkasan. The Michelin-starred restaurant operates at Miami’s Fontainebleau, and will open a spot in New York in March, as well as five international locations in London, the Middle East and India. The new concept will expand the 54 space and will be indoor/outdoor.
