Seven Nights

This week in your city.

Thu 5

It turns out that July 5 is Bikini Day, in honor of the daring Frenchman Louis Reard, who unveiled the first two-piece swimsuit on this day in 1946. For the occasion, ladies can wear theirs all day and night—especially to the Splash Dance night swim party at Surrender, complete with Juicy music courtesy of Robbie Rivera. (In Encore, 10:30 p.m.,

Fri 6

Would you like some Disco Fries to go with that shake? Keep the bikini action going for Recess Fridays at Encore Beach Club, as well as a Betsey Johnson swimwear giveaway, as popular remix masters the Disco Fries spin. (At Encore, 11 a.m., For the Little Monsters looking for some Latin flavor to go with their house music, Lady Gaga’s music director and producer/DJ Fernando Garibay is In the House at Haze. (In Aria, 10:30 p.m.,

Sat 7

Thankfully planking was here and gone in the blink of an eye, but handstands never go out of style. In honor of what we’re being told is International Handstand Day, snap some snazzy Instagram photos of you doing just that—but it’s probably best to do so on the sandy Beachlife shores. Even better, Nectar Music Festival welcomes Paul Oakenfold, Doorly (with a grip of gear in tow for what should be some impressive sounds), Richard Beynon and one of our faves, Larry Tee, fresh off the release of his latest electro-clash treat, “Charlie.” (At Hard Rock Hotel, 10 a.m., Check another name off your Swedish DJ bucket list at Hyde for Marcus Schössow, who we’re 99.999 percent sure will drop his track “Las Vegas,” it’s only fitting—plus do another handstand when security isn’t looking. (In Bellagio, 10 p.m., Bonus points if on your handstand location scavenger hunt, you’re able to get a fabulous shot with Fabolous when the rap star performs live at 1 Oak. (In The Mirage, 10:30 p.m., Or take in some tunes under the night sky at the Boulevard Pool as Kimbra—better known to most of us as “that chick who sings on that Gotye song”—opens for Foster the People. (In the Cosmopolitan, 9 p.m.,

Sun 8

Ditch the party dresses and pumps, retire the monkey suit for the night and take a dip during Night Swim at XS to the sounds of Swedish DJ/producer Otto Knows. Check him off that bucket list, too! (In Encore, 10 p.m., For something a bit more off the beaten path, Grindhouse Burlesque presents its Midsummer Night’s Dream-themed show with sassy little strip teasers Sue Nami Sake, Rosalita Nikita, Red Satine, Poptart and D-Bomb at Choices Pub & Showroom.

Mon 9

Fresh off the success of its Ribbon of Life Spectacular, Golden Rainbow will help even more locals who are living with HIV/AIDS thanks to more fundraising during Cabanas for a Cause today at the Palms Pool & Bungalows. (At the Palms, 9 a.m., Once upon a time, party people didn’t eat; a strict diet of Red Bull and vodka was all that was needed to sustain life. But in the past few years, dining with a scene is a more important pre-game than downing a handle of Popov in a parking lot. So slip into something sexy as Botero Supper Club debuts tonight, with Warren Peace bringing the beats and Botero unveiling its nightlife menu with signature cocktails, small plates and light bites. (In Encore, 9 p.m.,

Tue 10

Bands should come with beer-pairings. For example, if you’re into punk rock/country music (yes, that’s a thing), Lucero is your band, and PBR perfectly enhances the flavor. And you can get both at Beauty Bar tonight! (517 E. Fremont St., 9 p.m., It might be called the Las Vegas Country Saloon, but all genres are welcome, including the weekly Hip-Hop Roots showcase.

The Grammy Award-winning icon is at Lavo for Hip-Hop Wednesdays—or the party formally known as Old School Wednesdays if your planner needs updating. (In the Palazzo, 11 p.m.,
