Pizzaoki – Steve Aoki’s New Pizza Chain

With “Papa” John Schnatter going through a months-long meltdown and his eponymous company suffering the consequences, there appears to be an opening for a new player in the celebrity-fronted pizza-delivery market. Enter Pizzaoki, a new business co-founded by famous disc jockey Steve Aoki, who happens to be the fourth-highest-paid DJ on Earth. Pizzaoki launched in Los Angeles, and, according to Forbes, it is poised for major expansion across the country, and, maybe someday, the world. Here are some questions you may have about the burgeoning celebrity-owned pizza delivery operation, plus all the answers.

Who is Steve Aoki, exactly?

As previously mentioned, the 40-year-old is an extremely successful DJ. Aoki’s accolades include Best Set of the Season at the 2007 DJ Awards and Best Mix Album of the Year at the 2008 Billboard Awards. He’s been nominated for one Grammy, which he lost out on to Skrillex in 2013. Aoki has also appeared in several television episodes and movies, typically playing himself, as a famous person often does in such cameos.

Also, his late father, Rocky, founded the ubiquitous Japanese steakhouse chain Benihana, which is so revered it was the setting for the greatest Christmas episode in the history of the American Office. One might not think a DJ has the required skills to run restaurants, but as he tells Forbes, Aoki already counts himself as an investor in five other restaurants, including a partnership with his brother in Bluetree Cafe, which boasts three locations in Hawai’i. He has the business in his genes.

What’s the Pizzaoki business model?

It actually has pretty low overhead. Since coming online July 9, the restaurant has operated out of Los Angeles’s Cloud Kitchens, which provides cooking space for multiple LA restaurants. It’s delivery only, with pies arriving at customers’ doors via third-party apps such as Postmates and UberEats. As a DJ, Aoki is no stranger to late hours, and Pizzaoki is appropriately open late: Sunday through Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. and Thursday through Saturday from 4 p.m. to 4 a.m. Of all Aoki’s restaurant investments, this is his first foray into the delivery-only sector.

Aoki is attempting to forge ahead where others have failed. The delivery-only model for restaurants has been pegged as The Next Big Thing in recent years, partly due to the success of third-party restaurant-delivery startups. However, execution of the idea may be more difficult than conception. In May 2017, New York City-based delivery-only establishment Maple, which counted celebrity chef David Chang as an investor, shut down. Less than a year later, Chang’s own delivery-only spot, Ando, followed suit. Last year in San Francisco, Young Fava’s delivery-only experiment lasted less than two months. This came on the heels of another Fog City delivery-only business, Sprig, going under.

So, Aoki may be facing a tougher path to delivery-only glory than he realizes, but, in his favor, chain pizza has been perceived by Americans as a delivery-only food for decades.

Pizzaoki serves eight pizzas, with names that reference Aoki and his music career, and ingredients that reference weed.

What’s on the menu?

Pizzaoki serves eight pizzas, with names that reference Aoki and his music career, and ingredients that reference weed — the base of each pie is his “lit herb-infused” dough. The sauce is his purportedly his mother’s homemade recipe. The most elaborate pizza is Aoki’s take on the supreme. Officially known at his restaurant as “mayhem” — that’s the name of a Steve Aoki song, by the way — it’s topped with mozzarella cheeses, sliced pepperoni, ground sausage, meatballs, mushrooms, black olives, red onions, sweet onions, red bell peppers, and green bell peppers. Purists will be disappointed to learn there is a pineapple pizza, the “turbulence,” which also comes with mozzarella cheese, sliced pepperoni, and homemade garlic ranch sauce. No doubt, Guy Fieri will be stopping by to proclaim this creation as “totally out of bounds” in the near future.

Does Pizzaoki have any celebrity endorsements?

Endorsements include the infamous Tommy Chong!

What do the customers think of Pizzaoki?

So far, the business is receiving generally positive reviews. “I love the music, but the pizza is AMAZING!” one satisfied customer writes on Facebook, where Pizzaoki has garnered 4.3 out of five stars. Yelpers have been a little more critical, doling out a 3.5-star rating. “It was good the next day when I ate a cold slice, like a heathen, after coming home through LA traffic,” opines one diner. “It was even a decent price. But, in the end, this was pizza.”

Are there haters?

Of course there are haters. Nobody wants to believe in a DJ-turned-pizza entrepreneur. “I love Steve Aoki but even he would be disappointed in what his pizza chefs are sending out to people,” says a less-than-enthused Yelper. Nevertheless, Aoki is undeterred.

“We faced the skepticism issue from the start, and it was one of the first conversations that we had,” he tells Forbes. “I already faced skepticism as an artist coming out of the gate. Of course, I still have the haters out there that want to bring me down on just the music side. I remember when I got my first Grammy nomination with my first album, and some of the music community were skeptical of a DJ coming into that space. The only way to battle it is by turning out quality content, quality service.”

What is Pizzaoki’s expansion plan?

Aoki and his business partner, Lawrence Vavra, are looking to ride the momentum that has come from their buzzy introduction in Los Angeles. The two reportedly want to open as many as seven more locations around LA and Southern California before the end of this year. Next year, they’ll add a San Diego establishment; head north to set up shop in San Francisco, Oakland, and Berkeley; and look beyond the Golden State to markets in Boston, Chicago, Miami, and New York City, totaling 15 to 20 locations around the country, by Vavra’s estimates.

What’s more, Aoki is already thinking about expanding across the Atlantic Ocean.

“Well, it’s kind of funny because I’ve been touring all summer and Pizzaoki is doing incredible, incredible numbers and getting an incredible response in LA, and all the interviews that I have been doing here in Europe and every single journalist wants to know when we’re bringing Pizzaoki to their country,” he tells Forbes. “When LV and I first sat down, we decided to conquer LA first then California and then the United States, that was the plan, but now the world is asking for it too. It’s so exciting to think I could bring Pizzaoki to Germany, Spain, France, and Italy, I mean, that’s the home of Pizza so who knows where we’ll end up going.”

New Orleans Mardi Gras 2018 Nightlife Party Guide

Mardi Gras 2018 invades New Orleans AKA “The Big Easy” over the next seven days, and the party doesn’t stop from now until next Wednesday.   There’s no doubt that N’awlins is more of a restaurant, dive bar, and live music venue city, with the lion’s share of the year-round party action centered around the infamous French Quarter and Bourbon Street.   And during the Mardi Gras Festival itself, daytime revelry will be spotted everywhere amidst the city streets of New Orleans: parades, colorful outfits, marching bands, dance trains, bead throwing, and public processions winding their way through the main arteries of the city from dawn ’til dusk… and then there’s little to no break before the freaks (and drunks) come out at night.

Mardi Gras in New Orleans means costumes and exposed flesh everywhere!

That being said, there are also a handful of vastly underrated nightclub options in the Crescent City – opulently decorated showrooms blasting laser-tinted smoke and pulsating music, where the world’s best hip-hop and electronic music artists stop in to perform as their national tour dates wind through the American South.  To be sure, New Orleans is and always will be an ultra-casual city – think shorts, flip-flops, and t-shirts with rude sayings on them – but sometimes you just want to dress up, be more fancy, sip adult cocktails, and bob your head to a beat… amirite or amirite?   Well, we’ve found found the best spots for you to do just that, and our app will make it easy to party hard in The Big Easy.  To celebrate our in-app launch of New Orleans, we give you our top picks for the best nightlife events for visitors and locals to celebrate Mardi Gras:

Boombox Cartel @ Metropolitan 

Mardi Gras may a bucket list vacation for many Americans, but for this particular 9-to-5 workday you’ll be grinding hard and sweating buckets.   Metropolitan NOLA has cobbled together a high-energy eight-hour electronic set headlined by brand-name duo Boombox Cartel.  Mexican born Producer/DJ’s Americo Garcia and Jorge Medina have quickly risen in fame among the EDM circuit and are due for a breakout 2018 in the electronic space with their unique low-end, heavy genre-blending sound. Their tracks are played all over the world by the likes of RL Grime, Diplo, Skrillex, and DJ Snake, and they have recently received shout-outs from Mad Decent, Billboard, Noisey, ThisSongIsSick, Complex, and many more.

Bacchus Parade Afterparty w/ DJ Keith Scott @ Masquerade

The local organizations responsible for throwing the world-famous parades on each day of the Mardi Gras festival are called Krewes.  Each Mardi Gras Parade Krewe has a unique history and theme.   Some have been around for decades, while others have been in existence for just a few years.  The Krewe of Bacchus, a local group formed in 1968, holds its parade on the Sunday before Mardi Gras Day, drawing crowds of several hundred thousands every year. With more than 1,000 members and 31 animated super-floats, the Krewe of Bacchus is revered as one of the most spectacular krewes in Carnival history; their large signature floats, Rendezvous supper dance with Las Vegas-type entertainment, and national celebrity monarchs are just a few of the tradition-breaking moves that set the Krewe of Bacchus apart from he rest.  Bacchus, the Greek god of wine, has been portrayed in past Mardi Gras parades by fun-loving celebrities such as Bob Hope, William Shatner, Dick Clark, Andy Garcia, and Will Ferrell.  After their parade wraps up, the afterparty shifts over to Masquerade, the Vegas-style nightclub inside Harrah’s Casino, for a wild dance party featuring DJ Keith Scott, a mainstay on Louisiana hip-hop radio stations.

Time: 10:00 PM – 2:00 AM

Venue: Masquerade (8 Canal St, New Orleans, LA 70130)

Steve Aoki & Grandtheft @ Metropolitan

The Lundi Gras celebration is a grand New Orleans tradition embedded into the fabric of both locals’ and tourists’ traditions of honoring carnival season.  Lundi Gras represents a series of events that take place the Monday before Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday. It has experienced a 20th century revival in New Orleans and is a must see daytime event for Mardi Gras revelers.  In the late afternoon, the Riverwalk Marketplace will host the annual Lundi Gras at Spanish Plaza with the arrival on the banks of the Mississippi River of Rex, King of Carnival; this free celebration includes fireworks and live musical entertainment.  As day turns into night, the Big Easy fireworks continue over at Metropolitan where Rex, King of Carnival yields his dominion to Aoki, King of Electronic Dance.   Brace yourself for a tough ticket but an epic time if you can squeeze your way in.

Time: 9:00 PM – 5:00 AM

Venue: Metropolitan (310 Andrew Higgins Blvd, New Orleans, LA 70130)

10th Annual Lundifest f/ Waka Flocka Flame @ Republic NOLA

Southern hip-hop star Waka Flocka Flame, with mega-hits like “No Hands” and “Hard In The Paint” under his belt, is sure to be one of the highest energy sets in the 10-year history of the Lundifest.  In New Orleans tradition, the night will start out with brass versions of hip-hop hits by New Orleans natives The Hot 8 Brass Band.  Come early and stay late, because Republic’s long-time resident, DJ G, will be spinning top 40s and hip-hop classics before, between, and after all the live sets.  Performances will start shortly after the parades pass downtown, so watch the Orpheus parade nearby and walk right on over for another epic Lundifest.

Time: 9:00 PM – 3:00 AM

Venue: Republic (828 S Peters St, New Orleans, LA 70130)

Mardi Gras Takeover @ Masquerade

For the past hot minute, Bernice Burgos has been making quite the name for herself.  The bartender turned “urban model” turned entrepreneur (3.7M Twitter followers!) has been turning up everywhere from your favorite artist’s music video to hip-hop morning radio stations to the gossip websites, thanks to her social media beef with Tiny Harris, wife of rapper T.I. and fellow reality TV star (4.5M Twitter followers!).  OK, OK, so reality TV may not be your cup of tea…. but rest assured, Ms. B’s presence as the marquee host for Masquerade’s Mardi Gras afterparty will explain why this venue inside Harrah’s Casino will be the “it” place of the night filled with famous/not-so-famous/wannabe-famous Instagram models, hip-hop celebrities, and known athletes such as the “Honey Badger” Tyrann Mathieu (a Lousiana State University legend) and local hero (and fantasy football god) Alvin Kamara of the NFL’s New Orleans Saints.  Pony up and bottle up… because if you can’t YOLO on Mardi Gras, you probably shouldn’t YOLO ever.

Time: 10:00 PM – 3:30 AM

Venue: Masquerade (8 Canal St, New Orleans, LA 70130)

More events and more venues for Mardi Gras 2018 in New Orleans can be found on the Discotech app.  Have a crazy but safe weekend, make sure to where lots of purple, green, & gold, always use the buddy system around town, and make sure to stock up on those beads!

Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 Party Guide

The annual International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) – with over 180,000 registered participants – descends upon Sin City this coming week.  If you’re joining us from out of town and are attending the conference, then you are in store for hellacious crowds, physically demanding marathon race-walks, and long days stacked back-to-back with vendor/partner meetings, sales pitches, and product demos.  But hey, don’t let this Vegas trip on the company dime go to waste.  You know what they say:  Work Hard, Play Harder.  And you can always catch up on sleep on the long plane ride home… or when you’re dead.

 

Here’s a recap of the best parties around town after the sun goes down during CES 2018 Week:

Monday, January 8th, 2018

French Montana @ Marquee Nightclub

French is ready to go “All The Way Up” for CES – are you?

CES doesn’t officially kick off until Tuesday morning, but the majority of convention attendees will fly into town on Monday morning, set up their booths at the Las Vegas Convention Center all afternoon, and be chomping at the bit to get the party started in Sin City as the sun goes down.  There are a few Monday night events and mixers around town, including the free Startup Night Downtown Vegas, where visitors can get a sneak peek at 15 of the hottest local startups from nearby Eureka Park. NASA, Lighter Capital, Scout Ventures, and other industry leaders will help select two winners who will go on to compete in the 2018 Startup of the Year competition.  Welcome mixers end around 9pm, and the hottest afterparty will be at Marquee Industry Mondays, where Grammy-nominated Moroccan-American hip-hop star French Montana will take CES revelers “All The Way Up” into the wee hours of the morning.  Pro tip 1: Sign up for the *FREE guest list* using the Discotech app.  Pro tip 2:  MAKE SURE YOU WAKE UP.  Set your hotel room alarm clock BEFORE you head out onto the Strip… or tell a co-worker to send you a wakeup call so you can get to the Convention Center or where you need to be on time.  Or else your employability will be going all the way down.

Time: 10:00 PM – 5:00 AM

Venue: Marquee @ Cosmopolitan (3708 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109)

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

Chainsmokers @ XS

Don’t ask them to play that Blink 182 song that you beat to death in Tucson, OK?

Is there any doubt that 2017 was the year of The Chainsmokers?   A slew of Song of The Decade candidates, a global world tour that can only be described as EPIC, and of course the residencies at two of the hottest nightclubs in Vegas.  This past year the duo put on numerous supercharged performances to packed houses at XS Nightclub and Encore Beach Club at the Wynn — and on the heels of the Grammy-winning pop duo’s incredible inaugural year as Steve’s nightlife residents, The Chainsmokers will headline Sin City’s biggest convention week behind the decks at XS Nightclub.  Tickets will start at $50 for men and $35 for ladies, giving access to both indoor and outdoor sections of the mega-club (stage access is not included unless you have a table). Tables range from a $2K minimum spend on the outdoor patio to a $15K minimum spend for VIP stage tables, with tax/gratuity/venue fees totaling about 35% on top of your group’s final spend amount.

Time: 10:30 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: XS @ The Encore (3131 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109)

Steve Aoki @ Omnia

Cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake….

A 2017 Hakkasan Group resident and the selected headliner for their 2018 Consumer Electronics Show festivities at their flagship venue, Steve Aoki is known for the enthralling electronic sounds and hard-hitting beats of his highly energetic shows.  The DJ, producer, and California native began his musical career in 1996 as founder of Dim Mak Records; since then his label has released over 250 music records for other notable electro house artists such as Datsik, Infected Mushroom, Dada Life, Zeds Dead, Aoki’s own collaboration with Tiësto, MSTRKRFT, The Bloody Beetroots, Felix Cartal and Mustard Pimp, Bloc Party, Battles, The Kills, The Gossip, Klaxons, Scanners, Whitey, and Mystery Jets just to name a few.   A surefire fan favorite for his captivating stage presence and zany antics – his signature move is throwing cakes into the crowd – Aoki enthralls dance floors and concert halls around the globe with his remixes and collaborations with some of the best-known DJs and recording artists of our time, including Celine Dion.  This is the official opening party for CES, and all CES attendees will enjoy an open bar from 10-11 PM and complimentary entry with their CES badge or event pass. Will Aoki invite any CES visitors to join him on stage at Omnia to do his world-famous “Aoki Jump” for the 2018 jump-off?  Get your tickets and make plans now, because it could be you…

Time: 10:30 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: OMNIA @ Caesar’s Palace  (3570 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109)

Wednesday, January 10th, 2018

Marshmello @ Intrigue

That one time you took off the VR headset and the person in front of you STILL looked like THIS.

Midway through CES week, your brain will probably be fried by all the relentless techie small talk, Virtual Reality headsets, driverless car rides, and awkward social interactions with the hordes of nerds and hipsters.   Wouldn’t it be fund to recharge by spending part of your CES rollicking and laughing the night away with one of EDM’s most talented artists and one of its funniest, quirkiest personalities?  After your CES company dinner, leave the graybeards of upper management at the slot machines, because this show will be for the twentysomething kids (and Janice in Accounting, because she’s cool AF).  A picture is worth a thousand words, and a Youtube clip is worth a million.   Enough said.

Time: 10:30 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: Intrigue @ The Wynn (3131 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV  89109)

Rick Ross @ Light

The boss that you wish you had at work.

Not only is CES one of the most exciting weeks for technology, it’s also an exciting week for music, as prime music artists flock to Vegas to entertain the masses that the convention brings in to town.  Mandalay Bay at the far south end of The Strip – one of the furthest hotels away from the Las Vegas Convention Center – is getting in on the action too.  But after a long couple of days covering over 1,900 square feet of exhibitions, you’ll definitely need to unwind and may not be up for the hike (or monorail ride).  The choice is yours: you can head back to your room, crawl into bed, put on the noise-canceling headphones, and lose yourself in some gangster rap… or you can dump all your pamphlets, shower up, get suited and booted, and find your second wind with Grammy-winning rapper Rick Ross and the gorgeous crowd he always draws.  We strongly suggest Option #2 – because nothing gets your mind off your mean boss like your dream boss AKA “The Boss” AKA Ricky Rozay.

Time: 10:30 PM – 5:00AM

Venue: Light @ Mandalay Bay (3950 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89119)

Thursday, January 11th, 2018

Tiesto @ Hakkasan

New Year’s resolution for this guy: More Vegas.

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. It looks like globe-trotting DJ and producer Tiësto will be staying as well, with the extension of his multi-year residency, which will go through 2020. The news was revealed last month in a press statement made by Hakkasan Group, which operates Hakkasan Nightclub, Wet Republic and several other clubs for both day and nightlife.  “It is an honor to return to Hakkasan Group and to continue my residencies at Hakkasan Nightclub and Wet Republic,” says Tiësto. “Vegas has come to feel like home, and through my residency with Hakkasan Group, I feel proud of the space we’ve created here for dance music. I look forward to many more opportunities to be inspired by this incredible city in venues that are consistently full of energy.”  Tiësto’s first performance of 2018 comes during CES; the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino will also be converting its main lobby to host meet-and-greets and more. Tickets to both events can be purchased here.

Time: 10:30 PM – 5:00 AM

Venue: Hakkasan @ MGM Grand (3799 S Las Vegas Blvd S ,Las Vegas, NV 89109)

DJ Mustard @ Tao

One beat please. Bacon-wrapped, hold the ketchup, hold the relish.

We assume most of you – yes, even you CES nerds – are at least peripherally familiar with DJ Mustard at this point.  Even if you aren’t, you’ve definitely heard a beat he’s created on your local radio station within the past five years, and you couldn’t get away from DJ Mustard in 2017: he burned up the airwaves month after month collaborating with some of hip-hop’s biggest names.  The Pushaz Ink affiliate has pioneered what he describes as “ratchet music”, and is a close friend of fellow California artist YG, also serving as his official tour DJ. Throughout his young career, the L.A. native has already collaborated with the likes of Young Jeezy, Tyga, 2 Chainz, TeeFlii, Nipsey Hussle, Ty Dolla $ign and many more.   Let’s face it: YG’s “My N*gga”, 2 Chainz’ “I’m Different” and Tyga’s “Rack City” are all DJ Mustard tracks that you – and every techie in your IT department and coding development team – had in your Spotify playlist and secretly know all the words to.  Now is your chance to sing along in person with zero shame and zero f*cks given, as Mustard returns to the site of his 2017 Vegas residency for a special CES performance featuring surprise guests and all his hits.  Main room tables start at $1,000 minimum spend; if you have control of the company AMEX card, those dance floor tables go for $4,000 and can be expensed to “team-building exercises” that are way more fun than trapezes or yoga retreats.

Time: 10:00 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: Tao @ The Venetian (3355 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109)

Friday, January 12th, 2018

DJ Esco @ Drai’s Nightclub

If you made it this far into CES week… then you’re from here.

Electronic dance music reigned supreme in Vegas throughout 2017, consistently commanding the highest-price tickets and tables in nightclubs around town.  That being said, there’s no doubt that hip-hop is enjoying a resurgence at the moment, and Drai’s Las Vegas has been a big reason behind that comeback.  This past year saw Drai’s surge to the top of the Vegas hip-hop nightlife ecosystem by committing to booking top-tier talent – Future, Migos, G-Eazy, Lil’ Wayne, to name a few – which in turn made Drai’s a coveted brand and destination not only for hip-hop royalty but for professional athletes and all of black Hollywood.  Yeah, yeah, yeah – we know that the Official CES Closing Party is just down the road at the Venetian.  But half of your compadres will already have skipped town, and the eggheads who worked too hard all convention week will be trying too hard to have fun there.  So trust us when we say the better party atmosphere will be elsewhere on the strip.  The coolest Vegas stories come from partying with the cool kids AKA us Vegas locals, and there will be plenty of them at the legendary Drai’s on Friday night bumping to DJ Esco and taking their city back from the hordes of CES tourists, prior to ending the night / starting the morning next door at the infamous Drai’s After Hours.

Time: 10:00 PM – 4:00AM (Drai’s After Hours goes from 2:00am to noon)

Venue: Drai’s Nightclub @ The Cromwell (3595 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109)

More events and more venues for CES 2018 in Las Vegas can be found on the Discotech app.  Safe travels to and from Sin City, enjoy the convention, and look for Discotech back in your own town!  (We’re in 25 North American cities and counting…)

Las Vegas New Year’s Eve 2018 Party Guide

Was 2017 a lucky one for you???  For Las Vegas – the entertainment, nightlife, and gambling capital of the world – it was certainly an up-and-down year.  On one hand, the city welcomed its first professional sports franchise – the NHL’s Vegas Golden Knights – with great crowds and rousing early success, and then broke ground on a new stadium for its soon-to-be second, the NFL’s Raiders franchise (moving from Oakland in 2020).  On the other hand, the city also suffered an unspeakable tragedy in the form of the worst terrorist mass shooting in American history during its annual Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival back in October.

As the year draws to a close, a sense of normalcy and community has returned to Las Vegas, and its glittering fast-paced lifestyle is proudly back on display for all to see – #VEGASSTRONG no doubt.   The trademark winter chill has descended upon the desert, but the casinos, entertainment shows, nightclubs, and bars have bounced back well and warmly from this past autumn’s tragedy.  The city’s locals are forever grateful for the emotional and financial support provided by the renewed streams of visitors coming from all over the world, and they are ready to do what they do best: deliver you stress-free good times for New Year’s Eve weekend and beyond, well into the 2018 calendar year.

For one last chance in 2017 you’ve got a tailor-made excuse to set aside all your past year’s disappointments and low points and promise yourself that next year will be THE BEST YEAR OF YOUR LIFE, all while surrounding yourself with fun-loving strangers, pulsating music, and premium liquor as you dance all your cares away.  And there are few better cities in the world for doing this than in Sin City, the world’s preeminent entertainment destination, with hundreds of fabulous party options to suit any taste.

In Vegas, they say “Luck Be A Lady” and all visitors hope and pray this fleeting dame does plant a lucky midnight kiss on their cheek to ring in the New Year.   While we can’t control what happens to you at the blackjack or craps tables this weekend, Discotech can most certainly assist with you finding good fortune at a great party.  Here our “Lucky Seven” picks for the best NYE nightclub parties/events around Sin City for you and your friends – be they Rat Pack or Wolfpack – to ring in 2018:

Toast to a memorable year with Bellagio as The Bank brings in the New Year the only way it knows how: with fabulous parties, amazing menus and drink specials, and over-the-top entertainment in the form of pop mega-superstar Bruno Mars.  Ring in 2018 in glitz and glamour and dance the night away in the 24K magic glow of the “24K Magic” man, who wraps up his year-long global tour with an encore return to the same venue where he rang in the 2012 and 2017 New Year’s celebrations.

Time: 9:00 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: The Bank @ Bellagio (Bellagio Resort and Casino, Las Vegas, NV 89109)

2) NYE 2018 f/ The Chainsmokers @ XS

Is there any doubt that 2017 was the year of The Chainsmokers?   A slew of Song of The Decade candidates, a global world tour that can only be described as EPIC, and of course the residencies at two of the hottest nightclubs in Vegas.  This past year the duo put on numerous supercharged performances to packed houses at XS Nightclub and Encore Beach Club at the Wynn — and now for the Grammy-winning pop duo’s incredible inaugural year as Steve’s nightlife residents, The Chainsmokers will lead the countdown to 2018 behind the decks at XS Nightclub.  All Access New Year’s Eve tickets will be $150 for men and $125 for ladies, giving access to both indoor and outdoor sections of the mega-club. Stage access is not included. Under the Stars tickets, with outdoor access only, are priced at $75 for men and $65 for ladies. Tables range from a $2K minimum spend on the outdoor patio to a $30K minimum spend for VIP stage tables.

Time: 10:30 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: XS @ The Encore (3131 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109)

3) NYE 2018 f/ Chris Brown @ Drai’s Nightclub

Electronic dance music reigned supreme in Vegas throughout 2017, consistently commanding the highest-price tickets and tables in nightclubs around town.  That being said, there’s no doubt that hip-hop is enjoying a resurgence at the moment, and Drai’s Las Vegas has been a big reason behind that comeback.  This past year saw Drai’s surge to the top of the Vegas hip-hop nightlife ecosystem by committing to booking top-tier talent – Future, Migos, G-Eazy, Lil’ Wayne, to name a few – which in turn made Drai’s a coveted brand and destination not only for hip-hop royalty but for professional athletes and all of black Hollywood.  For New Year’s Eve, superstar performer Chris Brown – arguably the hardest working artist in R&B hip-hop – graces the stage to open 2018 in front of a star-studded and celebrity-filled crowd.  The pride of Virginia has made a reputation among Vegas locals for club performances that last over 3 hours – nearly twice as long as those of other headlining artists – so lucky fans in attendance will definitely get their money’s worth.  Ticketholders for the event will receive two complimentary glasses of champagne to toast at midnight.  Oh, and this will be a black-tie affair…. so channel your best James Bond impressions,  take this tutorial, and come to the Cromwell dressed to the nines.

Time: 10:00 PM – 4:00AM

Venue: Drai’s Nightclub @ The Cromwell (3595 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109)

4) NYE 2018 f/ 2 Chainz @ 1OAK Las Vegas

If you’re a 2 Chainz hater, then you’ve spent a frustrating 2017 sitting on your hands while the Atlanta-born native has burned up the radio airwaves month after month.   Fast on the heels of his third album release in 2016, 2 Chainz dropped his fourth studio album “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music” to start the summer, and it immediately became the go-to album for barbecue/pool party background music.  Star-studded tracks such as “Good Drank” featuring Gucci Mane and Quavo, “4 AM” featuring Travis Scott, “Big Amount,” featuring Drake, and of course the ultra-catchy “It’s A Vibe” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, Jhené Aiko, and Trey Songz kept the star in the public eye, and his “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music” tour with his The Trap Choir was a smashing success.   For New Year’s Eve he returns to the site of his 2017 Vegas residency for a special performance featuring surprise guests and all his hits; lounge room tables start at $1,000 and main room tables at $2,500.

Time: 10:30 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: 1OAK LV @ The Mirage (3400 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109)

5) Steve Aoki @ Hakkasan

A 2017 Hakkasan Group resident and the selected headliner for their New Year’s Eve festivities, Steve Aoki is known for the enthralling electronic sounds and hard-hitting beats of his highly energetic shows.  The DJ, producer, and California native began his musical career in 1996 as founder of Dim Mak Records; since then his label has released over 250 music records for other notable electro house artists such as Datsik, Infected Mushroom, Dada Life, Zeds Dead, Aoki’s own collaboration with Tiësto, MSTRKRFT, The Bloody Beetroots, Felix Cartal and Mustard Pimp, Bloc Party, Battles, The Kills, The Gossip, Klaxons, Scanners, Whitey, and Mystery Jets just to name a few.   A surefire fan favorite for his captivating stage presence and zany antics – his signature move is throwing cakes into the crowd – Aoki enthralls dance floors and concert halls around the globe with his remixes and collaborations with some of the best-known DJs and recording artists of our time.  Which of his world-famous friends will join him on stage at Hakkasan on NYE to do his world-famous “Aoki Jump” for the 2018 jump-off?

Time: 10:00 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: Hakkasan @ MGM Grand (3799 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV  89109)

6) New Year’s Eve f/ Marshmello @ Intrigue

Wouldn’t it be fund to spend NYE rollicking and laughing the night away with one of EDM’s most talented artists and most humorous, quirky personalities?  A picture is worth a thousand words, and a Youtube clip is worth a million.   Enough said.

Time: 10:30 PM – 4:00 AM
