Where East Meets Best: 1 Oak

Las Vegas lucked out last year when it welcomed New York import 1 Oak Nightclub to the former Jet space in The Mirage. Actually, it was a lot more than just luck that led to the 16,000-square-foot space’s sophisticated makeover. As featured in last year’s awards (VegasSeven.com/NightlifeIssue/2011), it was the fortuitous collaboration of New York’s elite the Butter Group and Las Vegas royalty, the Light Group, that brought the Avalon Sound system to life in an all-new design set off by artwork from Roy Nachum. You should know by now that 1 Oak stands for “one of a kind,” and it is, although technically now there are two. We let it go, so should you.
