Part of an expansive entertainment complex that includes Encore Beach Club, this indoor/outdoor pleasure palace is the latest collaboration between Steve Wynn and nightlife impresario Sean Christie. The indoors is appropriately dazzling, with flashing pinball-like lights, plush banquettes and VIP seating surrounded by go-go dancers and a 90-foot metallic snake that peers out from the wall behind the main bar. Outside, the 45,000-square-foot oasis is marked by three tiered pools and two levels of extravagant, fully-equipped cabanas and bungalows — so you can party under the stars all night long.
Trendsetting DJ Steve Aoki, a prominent figure on the electro-dance scene, energizes the evenings with his dynamic live performance set every Friday night. And Surrender is the place to be on New Year’s Eve, when will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas will host and perform his first-ever New Year’s deejay set in Vegas.
