Life’s a Beach
Less than six months after it opened, Drai’s Beach Club, Nightclub & After Hours has distinguished itself in several ways—even in Las Vegas, a city that’s already overrun with to-the-max entertainment options.
First, it boasts eight pools—including five in private bungalows if you want to VIP yourself away from the masses in the 4,500-person-capacity venue. Then, if your checking account is feeling a little heavy, for $737,000 you can charter a 737 for you and 50 of your closest friends to jet to the club from anywhere in the country. (And yes, the club has received legitimate inquiries about booking the plane.)
But beyond the high fliers, the most popular event at the club takes place every Tuesday night: Drai’s Yacht Club—an all-night rooftop beach party. “We thought it would be like any other night, but it took on a life of its own,” says Drai’s managing partner, Ryan Craig. “Everyone comes in yacht attire: boat shoes and sailor hats.”
DJ FIVE, NIGHT OWL
ON AN AVERAGE SATURDAY NIGHT … I’ll usually take a nap before work. I’ll get to the club and DJ for two hours; after that I’ll go eat in Chinatown and go to bed.
A SHOW GOES TO THE NEXT LEVEL WHEN … There’s a high degree of technicality in the production. Pulling out all the stops—LED screens, confetti, being fun and having fun.
MY FAVORITE PART OF NIGHTLIFE IS … Getting paid to purely enjoy myself.
