Last Saturday, Liaison Nightclub had a line extending to Bally’s slot machines, with generally packed dance floors, several occupied VIP tables and busy bars between midnight and 2 a.m.—typically signs of a healthy, successful night. Several attendees sported Britney Spears shirts, having just walked over from Planet Hollywood where she had just performed. A few straight couples were spotted within the overwhelmingly gay male crowd. One queer dude even brought his dad.
However, I’ve heard repeatedly that busy nights were not the norm at the LGBT-marketed danceteria—the first of its kind inside a Vegas casino—which opened its doors last June after Victor Drai and this team moved their afterhours party back to its basement location at the Cromwell but kept the space they renovated at great expense.
