Wynn Opens Intrigue; Aria Preps Jewel

Wynn Resorts heralded a new era of intimate nightclub entertainment with the April 28 opening of its Intrigue club in the Wynn Las Vegas, while Aria prepares its new nightclub, Jewel.

Nightclub mogul Sean Christie partnered with Wynn Resorts to create the Intrigue, which replaces the former Tryst nightclub.

Supermodel Charlotte McKinney and 2012 Miss Universe and Miss USA Olivia Culpo hosted the Intrigue’s grand opening party. Also attending  were actresses Kate Hudson and Vanessa Hudgens, along with other celebrities.

The new venue is smaller and more “intimate,” in order to create a more interactive environment for patrons, and will provide an ever-changing experience, Christie told Las Vegas Sun columnist Robin Leach.

Christie says they’ll “consistently change it up,” instead of providing the same repetitive sensory overload offered at many large-scale nightclub venues on the Las Vegas Strip.

Further south, on the west side of the Las Vegas Strip, the Hakkasan Group opened its Jewel nightclub at the Aria, which also will provide an intimate experience for clubgoers.

The Jewel will hold up to 1,923 patrons, and each of its 50 tables will be at the heart of the action inside the 24,000-square-foot, single-room club.

Entertainment will include hosts comprised of artists of many types, as well as DJs, to help create a party-like atmosphere. The Hakkasan Group says every guest will be close to performers, creating a more intimate experience.

The Jewel also will have five themed skybox suites on a mezzanine level, as well as a bar and an area for general admission.
