A New Year means updates for the Las Vegas party scene, including some hellos and goodbyes. First up, we bid a fond farewell to Snitch at Ghostbar. January 30 marks the final night for the party that’s been going since 2010. In honor of the finale, the OG DJ crew of DJ88, M!keAttack and Dave Fogg are on hand. But all is not lost: A new ladies night will launch sometime in March.
Also new to nightlife, Pure dips into early-hour entertainment Mondays through Thursdays starting at 5 p.m. in the Lounge (the former Pussycat Doll Lounge space). Singer/songwriter Suzie McNeil will hold a residency for the month with a mix of favorite covers and originals, plus an audience segment with a rock-star karaoke twist. The Pure Lounge opens at 5 p.m. with the entertainment starting at 8 p.m. (9 p.m. on Tuesdays).
Those fortunate enough to get away from all the neon—but who still long for the vibrancy of Las Vegas nightlife—will rejoice in the knowledge that both Wynn Resorts and Tao Group are heading to the annual Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. First up, Encore Beach Club, Surrender, Tryst and XS, will transform concert venue Park City Live into a club experience January 17-21, with DJ sets from Nero, Afrojack, Cedric Gervais and more over the course of the weekend. And for its eighth year on the mountain, Tao Group descends upon the film festival, once again creating an underground club at the Village at the Lift, with talent including DJs Vice, Politik and a performance by Nas.
