Drai’s is at The Cromwell at 3595 S Las Vegas Blvd
10 AM – close on Friday-Sundays, + Tuesday Nightswim
Positioned atop The Cromwell on the 11th floor, Drai’s reigns over what is arguably the busiest intersection in Vegas. During the daytime it’s a beach pool party on steroids; in the evening it morphs into an upscale high-voltage nightclub.
The dayclub embraces north-facing views including the Red Rock Mountains in the distance and the Bellagio fountains across the street. A central pool is flanked by palm trees and a white edifice with pink curtains covering the 15 second-floor cabanas outfitted with HD TVs — but with all the hard bodies dancing to the tunes of a live DJ it’s doubtful anyone will be watching much television. The nightclub, a two-story indoor space facing the dayclub pool, is all shiny black semi-circular booths and a horseshoe DJ station surrounded by columns festooned with postage stamp-sized mirrors.
“I designed this club inch by inch,” Drai tells The Hollywood Reporter. “I wanted a different scale and scope.” He’s certainly achieved that. The two-story nightclub has seven control table operators behind the DJ for unsurpassed visuals on the 270-degree wraparound video wall and the first-ever ceiling video panels, so it’s a constant stream of optical illumination. VIP tables and booths ring the dance floor and match the second-floor private balcony areas, all of which are upholstered with black imitation crocodile coverings highlighted with pink and orange. The sound system is off the charts, and the music will rattle your very bones, making the nonstop flood of sound, vibration and light a near-primal sensation.
