With Las Vegas expecting record crowds this New Year’s weekend, Sin City must make room for its revelers.
Cue: Hyde Bellagio.
Opening New Year’s Eve, this Italian villa-inspired new club overlooking the Fountains of Bellagio is the first nightlife venture in Las Vegas brought to you by designer Philippe Starck and sbe, the group behind LA’s The Abbey, Cleo, the SLS Hotels, and more. And with a day-to-night New Year’s Day celebration featuring an intimate performance by three-time Grammy Award-nominated DJ Paul Oakenfeld, Hyde Bellagio is off to a very good start. Ten-fact countdown, commence.
10. The Hyde’s signature cocktail: the Cucumber Watermelon Margarita.
9. It’s open nightly from 5pm-1am, and opens and closes extra late on Friday and Saturday, 11pm-4am. You could put it in a full workweek here. Partying is a full-time job.
8. The club is 10,000 square feet. That’s as large as Jenny Craig’s house!
7. The wine menu includes 1,500 bottles from Bellagio’s award-winning wine program. Come thirsty. Leave…at some point.
6. The outdoor terrace is inspired by a Tuscan garden. Lined with olive trees and flanked with sumptuous sofas and an outdoor bar, here is your front-row view of the Fountains of Bellagio. Bring popcorn.
5. There’s a fireplace. In the salon.
4. Be vain without shame at the upper living room’s vanity-inspired bar. Made of high-gloss black carved wood, the bar features assorted artwork and photography.
3. A private study (for studying?) features more wood-covered walls with bookshelves (for reading?) and a desk where books, festival masks, and candles are up for sale, as well as history-filled trinkets left behind by the space’s previous owner.
2. Drink and eat with small plate offerings from the Strip’s home-style, NY-native Tuscan restaurant Osteria del Circo. Kobe beef sliders and Ahi tuna taratar cones. Mmmm.
1. The club fits 714 people. That’s the entire population of Tuscola, Texas!
