Introducing Gay Nightlife to Las Vegas. Gay nightclub inside of Ballys Casino! LIAISON.
Victor DRAIS clubs are famous in Los Angeles and now Las Vegas. Liaison is his first gay club.
(Drai’s Enterprise is owned and operated by managing partner Victor Drai and Michael Gruber, who is regarded by many as the “father of the Las Vegas after-hours scene.” As creator and founder of Las Vegas mega-clubs Tryst and XS, Drai is the visionary and owner of the legendary Drai’s After Hours club. Drai’s Enterprise also operates the renowned Los Angeles restaurant/club Drai’s, which was established in 1993, and the very popular Drai’s Hollywood, which opened in 2010 as a restaurant, pool and nightclub located on the rooftop of the W Hotel in Hollywood, California. In 2014, Drai Enterprise will introduce a new concept, Drai’s Nightclub Beach Club, at the formerly known Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall & Saloon. The rooftop venue will encompass 65,000 square feet offering panoramic views of the Las Vegas Strip and boast a pool, dayclub/nightclub and concert space. Additionally, After Hours by Drai will re-open, Las Vegas’ most famous after hour’s nightclub, is a lush, exciting place to enjoy the early morning Vegas nightlife. Boasting four various sized rooms with two plush bars and two large dance floors, the sensuous interior offers more than 10,000 square-feet of alluring space. Beautiful artwork is placed throughout the venue creating a unique artistic ambiance.)
BUT BACK TO LIAISON….Everything at Liaison will symbolize elegance. From the saturated, sexy dark finishes of gold and black found throughout the club to the opulent design featuring an abundance of mirrors and Venetian-style chandeliers. Liaison will be intimate, yet large enough to provide the social experience that is a signature of Drai’s venues. It will offer two club rooms, two DJ’s, multiple bars, stage and plenty of space for surprise performances. “The importance of having a gay nightclub in a major hotel/casino on the strip is huge,” notes Cordova. “It validates equality and demonstrates just how far we have progressed culturally. This has been the moment that I’ve been working towards for all these years and it’s exciting to see gay nightlife changing in such a big way; these are definitely exciting times in LGBT and Las Vegas history.”
The famous LADY BUNNY will be in town July 24 and July 31st, kicking off LIBRARY THURSDAYS with some of the most famous drag entertainment in the world!
