CY WAITS BACK IN THE GAME

Waits
All LeBron, all the time.

Former XS managing partner Cy Waits, twin brother to current managing partner Jesse, is taking his next project to South Beach, so finally, Miami can have a nightclub of its very own.

Waits, partnering with former Hard Rock Body English/Rehab/Vanity mastermind Cory McCormack, will do Adore inside the Boulan hotel.

It will be unique and different,” says Waits, who expects to have a soft opening in time for Halloween and be fully operational by December. … “There’s no real theme per se,” says Waits, when asked about the design approach. “I always try to create something comfortable, sexy and warm that makes people feel at home.”

As for the DJ talent, nothing concrete has been announced yet. But it’s not hard to envision talent in line with the current XS roster.

KATY PERRY ROLLS DEEP INTO XS

As usual, it’s good to be Steve Wynn. (Photos by Danny Mahoney)

Katy Perry wandered around Wynn Friday night after the first day of the iHeartRadio Music Festival, wearing a T-shirt and jean shorts. Really low-cut jean shorts, sure, but a T-shirt nonetheless. It’s like getting socks on Christmas.

Perry, Muse, Adam Lambert, Brian May, Kate Hudson, Steve and Andrea Wynn, and Nick Hissom were among a group of 50 at Botero around 12:30 a.m. From there, they all went over to XS where they took over three private cabanas. Which probably led to dozens of clubgoers wondering why there was some broad in a T-shirt and jean shorts taking up valuable cabana real estate.

It’s Diplo at XS for Mad Decent Monday, and you know what that means. It means we’re playing another spirited round of What’s Diplo Tweeting Today?

Happy birthday Mexico

JOBROS CAN BOOZE AS A FAMILY NOW

We’re not exactly sure how a deal with Satan works, but we commend the Jonas Brothers for doing the hard work and reading like, old Aleister Crowley books and listening to Judas Priest records backwards to figure it out.

How else would you explain all that fame and money before being of legal drinking age? Or the fact that Nick Jonas celebrated his 21st birthday at Wynn with his girlfriend, who happens to be former Miss USA and Miss Universe Olivia Culpo? Goddamn. We’re not even using our soul for anything. It’s totally for sale. Cheap!

Nick was joined by brothers Kevin (and wife Danielle) and Joe (and not Taylor Swift) Saturday night at Le Reve, before doing dinner at Andrea’s. On Sunday, the crew were joined by 25 friends for dinner at Botero up until midnight, when he got celebratory cake.

Then it was on to XS, where Joe gave Nick a pair of Sinatra’s tap shoes and Kevin gave him chips from the casino floor. Which is like buying your mom batteries and gum from 7-11 on Christmas morning on your way over to her house.

Still partying on Sunday night were Enrique Iglesias, Lil Jon and Liam Hemsworth. Hemsworth seems to be doing just fine after the Miley Cyrus breakup, upgrading to actress Eliza Gonzalez at Encore Beach Club. Not the nonexistent “Bungalow” in the story. Just, you know, to clairfy in case you were trying to go to imaginary clubs all of a sudden.

Wayne Campbell doppleganger Max Vangeli heads up the show tonight at XS. We do not believe that a be-wigged Dana Carvey is scheduled for an appearance, though. Much to our consternation. Neither is a 1992-era Tia Carrere, much to our serious consternation. Click for more words and pictures »

WYNN CLUBS HEADING TO GEORGIA


Just another month, another festival headliner gig for Tiesto. (Photos by Erik Kabik)

TomorrowWorld, the Stateside extension of Belgium’s Tomorrowland, hits Chattahoochee Hills, Ga., of all places September 27-29. And right there to bring the full bottle service experience to the Dirty South will be XS and Encore Beach Club, which are running a VIP setup starting at $10,000.

Doing VIP areas at various festivals (and events like Sundance) is turning into regular business for the big, brand-conscious clubs. Treating the far-flung fests as a feeder market for Vegas nightlife seems like an obvious move, but what we’re curious to see is if there’s reciprocity in bringing talent from the likes of TomorrowWorld back to town. Here’s the 300-artist lineup in full.

XS rolls up another Monday tonight with Norman Doray, a man who has neither a DJ name nor is Dutch nor goofy headgear. So we’re pretty sure he doesn’t actually count. What, are we supposed to believe you can just produce EDM tracks under your real name and be from France? Come on. this ain’t our first rodeo. Click for more words and pictures »

Well, you’ve come this far, you may as well gut it out for one more night. Unless you just needed to sleep from 7 a.m. this morning until about noon tomorrow, and who could blame you? But if that’s not the case, XS has both Afrojack and Diplo tonight, for one last big DJ push before we go back to normal life. Click for more words and pictures »

So moody. (Photo by Danny Mahoney)

Or favorite DJ on Twitter, Diplo, returns Mad Decent Monday to XS tonight. It’s the only place where you’re going to find wisdom like “Ladies! Remember to clean ur bellybutton.. I jus cleaned mine it was dirty. Nobody wants a dirty belly button” and notable follow-up “Also next girl to give me a hickey is gettin bodyslammed this isn’t 8th grade.” That’s news you can use if you find yourself in Diplo’s suite around 6 a.m. Click for more words and pictures »
