After striking out in Miami and long after ditching plans for an LA location, Gansevoort Hotels has landed in a pretty spectacular place--Las Vegas. Specifically, the old Bill's Gambling Hall on the Las Vegas Strip.
On Friday, it was announced that Caesars Entertainment, the parent company of Caesars Palace, Paris Bally's, Bill's and a bunch of other casino hotels, would be turning Bill's into the Gansevoort Las Vegas. USA Today reported:
The Old West-style casino hotel, which closed last month, will reopen in January as the Gansevoort Las Vegas, with rates starting at $249 a night. The building's currently in the midst of a $185 million renovation that will transform the guest rooms, casino space, restaurants and public areas into stylish, upscale spaces.
Another night at LIV at The Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami, another crazy event goes down.
This time it was rapper Juvenile who was involved in some sort brawl at LIV that spilled outside to the front of the hotel, according to TMZ. And things got kind of scary:
Security told police the people involved in the fight were "creating a threat to life and property as well as the overall safety of the patrons inside."
The rapper, who had reunited with former bandmate Lil' Wayne earlier in the evening onstage at LIV, was arrested by Miami PD and hauled to jail.
Being one of the most popular nightclubs in Miami, LIV certainly has seen its share of wild action from the Miami Heat celebrating their championship win to Lebron's mom's bad behavior and even to some natural destruction. So we had to wonder, does any of this nightclub drama affect a hotel stay, especially if there's a brawl breaking out while guests are waking up for breakfast?
It has been years, literally, since we heard any news about the rooftop bar that was supposed to open at New York's Jane Hotel. Back in 2008 we managed to get a peek at what the space looked like at the time with its killer views of the Hudson River but by the following year, plans for the bar were seemingly gone with the wind. Until today.
Alas just because you scored a $79 cabin room at the hotel (with shared bathrooms down the hall) doesn't mean you will have access to the rooftop oasis.

After missing out on all the fun over Memorial Day Weekend, Revel HQ, the four-level nightclub venue inside Revel, is finally ready to make its debut. Kind of.
The nightclub's official opening date isn't until September, but it is hosting another "preview" weekend on July 6 (yes, another—the first preview was held on June 14, and Revel even posted photos on its website for your browsing pleasure). The club will open to offer revel-ers a taste of the bottle service, the bass-thumping DJs, the suspended stage, and all the rest of it.
Oh, and incidentally, this preview happens to coincide with a two-night run at Ovation Hall by a little known rapper called Kanye West. Ever heard of him?

Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh and the rest of the Miami Heat team finally captured the NBA Championship last night over the Oklahoma City
Zombie Sonics Thunder in Miami and once the celebrations moved out of the American Airlines Arena, the ballers took their partying to the LIV nightclub at The Fontainebleau, arguably the hottest nightclub in Miami depsite having been open for a few years now.
And here's exactly how they spent their night up in the club:
LeBron James with fiancé Savannah Brinson were greeted at the luxurious resort around 3AM to club goers chanting MVP as bottles of Ace of Spades Champagne arrived. Teammates Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh along with their significant others Gabrielle Union and Adrienne Bosh arrived with Heat owner Micky Arison to the sounds of DJ IRIE spinning at the party.
Wade revealed to the crowed his new Twitter hash tag , #LMT stands for "Love my Team" just as James grabbed the mic and took the LIV stage rapping to Jay-Z and Kanye West's "Ball So Hard," DJ Khaled's "All I Do is Win" and the obvious, Queen's "We Are the Champions." In a final surprise moment, electropop duo LMFAO took the stage to perform for the winning team and the still raucous crowd at 4:50AM.

Oh, Dream Downtown. In a perfect world, we'd love you all the way. But you sure don't make yourself easy to get to!
Back a few weeks ago, we thought we were doing y'all a favor by posting our list of which hotel rooftop bars to hit up on which days of the week, but since we've gotten some flack on the feasibility of actually getting past the door and up to some of those places, we thought we'd offer some advice on entering one in particular, PhD at Dream Downtown.

When the hotel soft-opened on April 2, only a handful of restaurants and public areas were open. But the rest of the resort was set to be revealed over Memorial Day Weekend. Except according to @NYNightlife, Revel's massive four-level nightclub HQ Nightclub along with the HQ Beach Club is not going to make the MemWeekend party. Instead a July opening is looking more likely.
We got in touch with a rep for Angel Management Group, who is operating HQ, and she confirmed the club's opening delay.
Clearly, American Airlines Arena was feeling left out: Sun Life Stadium has an offshoot of the Fontainebleau's LIV and the new Marlins Ballpark has a Clevelander bar. So, which hotel jumped in to complete the hotel-nightclub-inside-a-Miami-stadium triumvirate?
That would be the The SLS Hotel at South Beach, which will launch a Hyde club inside the home of the Heat. They're no strangers to stadium-clubs, with a Hyde in the Staples Center. You can read all about what to expect in downtown Miami all over the Internet--but we want to know is: what about Hyde Beach at SLS South Beach? What's the story there?

The time has come for the Maritime Hotel's Hiro Ballroom and Matsuri restaurant to close. After many years, many celebrity performances, and many penis festivals, the party has finally come to an end.
But that doesn't mean you can't still experience all the cool, Asian-inspired decor of the space long after it's gone. Eater reports that everything inside the ballroom and restaurant will be auctioned off starting next week. You like paper lanterns? You got 'em. You need a new Japanese bathroom sign? Now you know where to go. For all we know, they might even have some extra hot pots and sake barrels kicking around somewhere too.
The exclusive Setai Hotel in South Beach where rooms top $1,000 a night in season, just got a little more exclusive.
The hotel has opened their newest nightclub, the DV Club from Italian designer Domenic Vacca (the first in what is presumed to be a collection) and we hope you're on the list because this place is members-only.
The private club features a lounge/club areas as well as a 5,000-sq.ft. roof spaces, a 70-seat restaurant from Michelin Star-awarded Executive Chef David Werly and a wine cellar with more than 3,000 bottles of rare wine and champagnes. The club is open from Thursday through Sunday from 8pm to 2am (3am on Fridays and Saturdays.)
Now before you get in a tizzy, if you're a paying hotel guest, don't worry, you will have full access to the club. Phew!
Billing itself as the "next generation" of after-hours hotel entertainment, Royal Jelly will be one of two nightclubs opening inside the upcoming Revel, Atlantic City's brand spanking new multi-billion-dollar resort. So, what can we expect? Oh, the usual: burlesque dancers, flying catwalks, choreographed rock concerts, tuxedoed sax players, and pleeenty of feather boas and sparkling bikinis.
Judging from the promo video now up on their site, Royal Jelly aims to combine the hipness and exclusivity of a nightclub with the rock 'n roll-tinged brand of burlesque that is now the trademark of Ivan Kane, who will be running the show at Royal Jelly. Though don't expect to make an early night of it here: typically, shows will begin at 10pm every night, but an after hours (read: more fun) rock 'n roll burlesque performance won't get going until around 2am.
Guest of a Guest reports that both Matsuri and the Hiro Ballroom at the hotel are closing at the end of March. And in their place will be two new spots from Marc Packer, who helped launched two of NYC's hottest nightclubs, Lavo and Tao.
While Hiro and Matsuri were beloved places in their own right (and not just because of penis worshipping), we're guessing they just could not compete with the PH.D, the nightclub at the bumpin' Dream Downtown.
The Penis Festival usually happens during the first week of April. Maybe Matsuri will celebrate a week early. After all, what could be better than a final send-off surrounded by penii?
