Don't worry. This is just a construction shot of Drai's. It's not the finished product.

As we eagerly await the opening of The W Hollywood on December 3, we've got word that construction on the hotel's nightclub, Drai's Hollywood--a spin-off of the legendary Las Vegas club--has begun. The club's construction firm, R.D. Olson sent us this press release with some detes:

Draiís Hollywood will include an intimate 2,331-square-foot VIP lounge on ground level with a private VIP entrance separate from the hotelís public lobby entry; a 21,552-square-foot penthouse glassed-in bar on the 11th floor with a 1,000-square-foot open air balcony; and an adjacent 2,131-square-foot rooftop pool deck and bar. The total capacity of Draiís Hollywood will be 792 occupants.

And perhaps to avoid the noise problem that has plagued the W Scottsdale, the 11th floor bar will be atop an "unusual insulated adjustable concrete slab." Still, we'd be wary if we were one of the residents who live on the floor below.

Interested in some nightclub construction shots? R.D Olson has set up a webcam of Drai's construction. In the meantime, you can also become Drais friend on Facebook. But that doesn't mean you'll get VIP treatment when it opens.
