The 44th annual Beaux Arts Ball is coming back to Studio 54

The 44th annual
 Beaux Arts Ball
is coming back to Studio 54 this year on Halloween night! The party starts at 10pm and tickets are just $25 in advance and $35 at the door. Don’t forget your costume because cash prizes will be given away for Sexiest, Best Drag and Most Original Costumes!

The biggest Halloween costume party of the year, the Beaux Arts Ball is a Las Vegas tradition dating back more than 40 years. Born as a private party for Strip headliners to lose themselves in costumed fantasy, the Beaux Arts Ball is open to everyone who dares to enjoy. The night features live performances by cast members of Las Vegas production shows, dancing, costume contests and the most outrageous costumes seen anywhere in Las Vegas.

Organized by Golden Rainbow, it is a non-profit organization founded in 1987. We provide housing and financial assistance to people living with HIV/AIDS in the Southern Nevada area.

Golden Rainbow is a grass roots organization, founded by members of the entertainment industry who saw the need to provide housing for people with HIV/AIDS when one of their own was forced to live and die in a garage.

Entertainers, doing what they do best, put together their first show to raise money for this worthwhile cause. That first show was called “Golden Rainbow” and premiered July 11, 1987, in the Ziegfeld Theatre at Bally’s. Since then the show’s name has been changed to  “Ribbon of Life ” and is one of the largest HIV/AIDS fundraisers in Nevada.

The Abbey of West Hollywood Comes to Vdara with a Weekly Sunday Beach Party


Widely known as one of the most popular West Hollywood hot spots, The Abbey Food has partnered with Las Vegas party planner Eduardo Cordova  and Vdara Hotel & Spa to host The Abbey Beach.  Each Sunday, Vdara Pool & Lounge will offer a taste of The Abbey’s signature LGBT party in the heart of CityCenter.

Vdara’s chic Pool & Lounge was decked out with The Abbey’s colorful flags and beach balls, while its 19 fully appointed cabanas were  serviced by the handsome Abbey Boys.  The Abbey’s bartenders from West Hollywood kept  the signature mojitos and martinis flowing while a rotating lineup from The Abbey’s resident DJs kept the party moving. 

“The first Abbey Beach at Vdara exceeded expectations. The crowd was high energy and the vibe was great. We had more than 400 guests party with us on opening weekend and are excited to welcome the community back for the rest of the season,” said Mary Giuliano, General Manager for Vdara Hotel & Spa at CityCenter.

“We are excited to offer  the LGBT community this  high-energy, upscale pool party unlike anything in Las Vegas,” said Mary Giuliano.  “With our designer architecture, personal service and unique location, Vdara is quickly becoming a hot destination for the sophisticated LGBT traveler.”

The Abbey Beach at Vdara Pool & Lounge occurs every Sunday now through September 26, noon – 6 p.m.  Labor Day weekend’s event will move from Sunday to Monday, September 6.  Cover is complimentary for Vdara hotel guests, $10 for Las Vegas locals and $20 for all other guests.
