Gay nightlife returns to the Strip with Roi Sundays at Chateau

Even though he knows as well as anyone about the lack of gay nightlife programming on the Las Vegas Strip, Eduardo Cordova was still a little surprised at the solid showing during the sneak preview/debut of Roi Sundays September 20 at Chateau. “It was packed. Everybody loved the venue and the event,” he says. “It was like the community was waiting for this.”

Cordova, a mainstay in the local club scene who also publishes the Spanish-language In Vegas magazine, has teamed with the nightclub at Paris and Pacifico Entertainment to make Roi Sundays a weekly event—the only LGBT night on the Strip.

Roi is French for “king,” and the royal French dancers that perform on Sundays help the event match Chateau’s Euro-vibe. An Absolut-sponsored open bar runs from 10:30 to 11:30 p.m. (Absolut bottles are $150, and shots are $5 all night) while the sounds are provided by resident DJs Nick Ayler and Ryan Kenney. Locals always get in free.
