    Protip: Contemplative chin-scratching is more effective with a Gandalf beard than soul-patch jewelry.

    DJ Turbulence is back for his bi-monthly Turbulent Thursday gigs at 1 Oak. We like the idea of doing something aviation-themed tonight, but we also hate the idea of putting on pants. So we’re probably going to just sit home and watch The Aviator. Again. Alec Baldwin kickin’ it in the Chrysler Building is basically how we want to live out our days. (more…)

    We apologize for anyone who has nightmares about being devoured by a nine-foot Kendall Jenner. If you have to blame anyone, blame 1 Oak. They’re the ones who busted out the Fatheads for Kriss Jenner’s birthday. She partied there Friday night with probable boyfriend Corey Gamble, Jonathan Cheban, probable serial killer Scott Disick and others. None of her actual daughters, but with those people for sure. Disick hosed her down with champagne before the night was through. Run, Kris! He’s playing the long-con! Next time he puts on a raincoat, you think it’s for the champagne and then BAM.

    Remember how we said Halloween wasn’t over until we or Diplo said it was over? Well. Halloween’s over. Sadly, no one wanted to turn it into Halloween Week with us. So I suppose we need to take off these werewolf hands. Actually, you know what? Screw it The wereijb igms gew pb. Also, Nick Cannon is at 1 Oak. (more…)


    Well, we have always wanted to run away and join the circus. (Photo by Joe Torrance | SPYONvegas.com)

    Tonight you can channel your inner clown in a way that could include the floppy shoes. Instead of just the regular way you do it. 1 Oak hosts Clinton Sparks and his Greatest Party on Earth for its monthly celebration of all things both circusy and dancey, wherever that particular Venn diagram overlaps.

    Famed Jeopardy! contestant and star of The Empire Strikes Back John Ratzenberger made a quick run on Social House with a friend last night. He got there around 8 p.m. for cocktails, but did take the time to talk with some of the other patrons at the bar. Who we’re going to go ahead and assume asked him “Archibald Leach, Bernard Schwartz and Lucille LeSueur?”

    Some other people who have never been in Ratzenberger’s kitchen: Meek Mill, who was at 1 Oak last night to celebrate his 25th birthday. Lil Jon was there with venture capital company Seedfrog CEO Danny Davis. Wait, is Crunk, LLC registered anywhere? You should probably squat on that trademark as soon as possible.


    As long as we stick to anything but tequila, it’ll be fine.

    If you’re clubbing it tonight, your choices are 1 Oak or Pure. Not the we can fathom the thought of drinking tonight after an evening full of margaritas that can be charitably described as “neon-esque.” Still, it’s not a bad opportunity to get in on an Industry Tuesday at Pure while you still can, with the rumors of a remodel scheduled for after Memorial Day.

    Oooh! We hope there will be elephants.

    The circus is back in town, with Clinton Sparks’ Greatest Party on Earth coming back to 1 Oak. We suggest packing 14 of your closest friends into a tiny car and piling out at the valet. It’ll really make that guy’s night. At least until all 14 of you tip him in cotton candy, anyway. (more…)


    Do something amusing. Like wear stiletto clown shoes.

    April Fool’s is not the booziest night of the year, it turns out. Apparently everyone’s afraid of exploding Martinis, or plastic snakes popping out of Red Bull cans or something. If you don’t want to spend the evening watching Netflix, your choice is 1 Oak. Otherwise, we suggest a comedy. (more…)

    Nick Cannon, who we learned today can almost make a convincing white guy if he didn’t go just a little too overboard with the ginger hair, swings through 1 Oak during the Nightclub & Bar show to spin a set ahead of April 1′s White People Party Music. So … it’s just “Brown Eyed Girl” and three random Hall & Oates songs over and over again? (more…)


    Those people who insist everything used to be better aren’t necessarily wrong.

    The overlap of aviation enthusiasts and dedicated drinkers doesn’t have to just be pilots anymore. 1 Oak tonight celebrates the launch of Red Bulletin, the magazine of the Red Bull Air Races, by inviting ladies to come dressed in sexy aviation-inspired costumes for free Skyy drinks until midnight. Why stop at Sexy Stewardess? Why not Sexy Amelia Earhart, or Sexy Alice Kramden (what with all the trips to the moon) or a Sexy Cessna C-145? That last one might only appeal to a very specific niche.
