Happy Birthday Jewel

The newest nightclub on the strip celebrates its first turn around the sun

Aria’s nightlife gem, Jewel Nightclub, is positioned for a blowout bash the weekend of May 19 on the occasion of its first anniversary.

Over the past 12 months, the Hakkasan Group venue played host to DJs such as The Chainsmokers, G.T.A., Party Favor, Tiësto, The LA Leakers, Borgeous and, of course, Steve Aoki, whose residency has sold out the venue on more than one occasion. Beyond the typical DJ cut, weekend party The Good Life Fridays has included chart-topping talent such as Travis Scott, Anderson .Paak, Lupe Fiasco and more. And Flawless Mondays has proven to be the industry night that shines even on the city’s most coveted day off. With programming touching all tastes, Jewel’s celebrity guests have included Jamie Foxx, Lil Jon, Jason Derulo and Puff Daddy, all keeping partygoers on their toes.

At less than one-third the size of Hakkasan Nightclub at MGM Grand, Jewel has given room-packing DJs a rare opportunity to connect with their fans in an intimate environment. Kaskade, who has become quite at home playing the big rooms, will be taking his party to Jewel on May 20. But the good times start with the Billboard Music Awards Official Pre-Party with PartyNextDoor on May 19. And the weekend closes out with Zedd on Flawless Mondays.

In only a year, Jewel Nightclub has become an integral part of the nightlife landscape. Now let’s eat cake and drink Champagne.
