Intrigue Nightclub at the Wynn Closing June 1

There might be time for one more dance at Intrigue. Wynn Las Vegas is shuttering the luxurious 14,000-square-foot nightclub on June 1 and will use the venue as a private event space.

Intrigue opened in April 2016 after the Wynn club space was renovated and updated from its previous version, Tryst, which was created in collaboration with Victor Drai in 2005 after the original incarnation, La Bête, was scrapped. The indoor-outdoor club has always been known for its cascading waterfall and intimate environment, including Intrigue’s “secret space” the Living Room.

Intrigue was also the smallest nightclub among Wynn Nightlife’s offerings, which include Encore’s XS Nightclub and Encore Beach Club. Memorial Day weekend saw Intrigue performances from RL Grime and Dillon Francis.

Cielo Nightclub to Close After 15 Year Run

NYC‘s historic nightlife scene may be hardly recognizable in a matter of years. Following a long list of closures of New York nightclubs, including Pacha NYC and Webster Hall, historic nightclub Cielo is reportedly shutting its doors at the end of the year.

In a post to his Facebook page, DJ Dove A.K.A. Capote Barbarito alleged that the club will permanently close its doors at the end of December to make way for real estate developments. “Great memories there whether it was hanging out dancing or playing some of my best sets DJing,” he wrote. “Cielo you’ll always have a special place in my heart thank you [sic].”

Cielo opened its doors to the public in 2003. The concept for the nightclub was hatched by Nicolas Matar, a DJ who got the idea for the club from playing Pacha Ibiza’s El Cielo, also called The Funky Room. Over the past 15 years his iconic club billed a talent pool diverse enough to include David Guetta, Luciano and Sven Väth.

Thanks for the memories.
