    What’s Next for Rose. Rabbit. Lie.?

    By Cindi Reed

    By definition, experiments involve trial and error. So, perhaps it shouldn’t have been a surprise when on July 13 the Cosmopolitan issued a statement regarding the status of its own “grand social experiment,” Rose Rabbit Lie: Vegas Nocturne, the beloved show portion of the perhaps-too-mysterious venue, had closed.

    DJ Jason Lema Feels Magnetic Pull of Production

    By Deanna Rilling

    If you’re in Las Vegas, and you see a guy subconsciously karate chopping to the rhythm in the DJ booth, that’s probably Jason Lema. The local spinner holds it down multiple times a week at Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub, as well as at Create in Los Angeles.

    By Laurel May Bond

    By night, these local DJs may have the masses sweating it out on the dance floors of Las Vegas’ top clubs, but by day, they’ve got stylish Las Vegans sweatin’ the hyper-curated street wear for sale at their local retail outposts.

    DJ Collectives Rally ‘Round the Beats

    By Laurel May Bond

    SKAM Artists With a roster longer than a weekend Strip cab-stand queue, the SKAM Artist family covers genres from hip-hop, to dance, pop, open format and beyond. Says SKAM Artist CEO Sujit Kundu: “I’ve got DJs that are worlds apart in their taste and spin style. Each has their own lane, but they’re still connected […]

    Fernet Branca Challenge Coins

    By Xania V. Woodman

    You don’t need a Fernet Branca challenge coin to order the Old Country, or any Fernet Branca cocktail for that matter, but it does help. Dwarfed though our market is by Fernet-obsessed San Francisco, Las Vegas is the birthplace of this important new cocktailian meme.

    Going Dutch with the Ketel One Society

    By Xania V. Woodman

    Elements Kitchen & Martini Bar co-owners Catherine Pawelek and her husband, chef Jose Luis Pawelek, make plenty of room on their menu for global cuisine: Italian, Argentinian, Creole and Dutch live right along side American favorites and Asian-inspired dishes. Recently, Elements got to highlight its Dutch offerings when the restaurant (4950 S. Rainbow Blvd., Suite 100, 750-2991) hosted members of the Ketel One Society.

    By Xania V. Woodman

    Construction is under way for Commonwealth’s September opening on the corner of East Fremont Street and Sixth Street, but the cocktail bar’s owners already have another announcement to make. Park On Fremont, a modern bar and urban beer garden, is slated to open just a month later at 506 E. Fremont in the former footprint of Maharaja Hookah Café.

    Carmer Takes Flight

    By Xania V. Woodman

    Freakin’ Frog and Whisky Attic proprietor Adam Carmer has a lot to smile about this St. Patrick’s Day. He is finally within a month of the launch of his Flight School in the Attic, as well as putting to bed his book, The Method: CSTEM, the Evolution of Tasting. For the UNLV professor, both projects have been a long time coming.

    Introducing Commonwealth

    By Xania V. Woodman

    Something new this way comes! In the heart of the summer, downtown will welcome Commonwealth to the corner of East Fremont and Sixth Street. The two-story venue presents, says partner and local businessman Michael Parks, “a mixture of snooty English country home, distressed Boston pub and an urban rooftop garden.”

    Two of a Kind

    By David Morris

    In an era where Manhattan’s “it” spots seem to expire in a New York minute, few nighttime playgrounds ever achieve any real staying power. However, Chelsea’s 1 Oak—short for “One of a kind”—has seemingly broken the mold. So what’s the secret? First and foremost it’s about the people—both the principals running the show and the clientele that become the evening’s cast. The Butter Group’s Scott Sartiano, Richie Akiva and Ronnie Madra (also behind Butter Restaurant, an amalgamation of nightclub and nouveau American bistro) undeniably “get” this.

    Repeal This!

    By Xania V. Woodman

    It’s how the nation got its booze back. Repeal Day—the day on which America’s Prohibition of alcohol ended, Dec. 5, 1933—will be celebrated in high fashion at a number of swinging parties around town this year. On Dec. 5, enjoy a Prohibition-era themed happy hour, 6-9 p.m. at RM Seafood in Mandalay Bay, then you can lift up a glass with Vegas Seven’s parent company, WENDOH Media, at the Holiday Repeal Day Bash, 8 p.m. at Comme Ça in the Cosmopolitan.

    Seeking Hyde

    By Liz Ohanesian

    At 9:30 on a Wednesday night, the club is virtually empty. As the clock ticks closer to midnight, though, L.A.’s Hyde Lounge quickly fills to capacity with the beautiful and the well-dressed. Girls with model faces sport fashionably nerdy glasses with their mini-dresses. Guys show up in business casual or high-end sportswear. This is a club where you want to look your best. It’s too exquisite a venue to show up in the same jeans and sneakers you would wear to a rock concert.

    We’ll have what the 99 percent is having

    By Xania V. Woodman

    Have your lighters at the ready and brush up on your loudest “Freebird”! Lynyrd Skynyrd BBQ & Beer will unite meat, liquor, women and rock ’n’ roll (the cardinal directions, in fact, for many an American man) when the iconic band’s raucous new barbecue joint and bar grand-opens Dec. 7 and 8 in Excalibur. But there’s much more going on in this 8,000-square-foot, 275-seat space than just the booze, brews and ‘cue.

    The venture of Milo and Eddie

    By Deanna Rilling

    We’ve repeatedly heard that Vegas is the new dance-music capital of North America, if not the world. Top DJ/producers from around the world are taking over at major nightclubs here. Renowned national and international nightlife brands are planting their flags up and down the Strip. But what about the local turntablists?
