Almost 100 years old, the Indy 500 has created a pretty killer list of epic stories and out of control experiences for race fans across the world! The last couple of years, the new and improved Snake Pit has brought in unreal talent and incredible music. So what happens when 4 legendary musicians take over the Snake Pit? The VIP stage breaks!!! The music was incredible, the energy was wild and the React Presents team threw down one hell of a party! The Snake Pit gates open at 7am and the party was well on its way (parties were raging as early as 4am in the lots surrounding the Indianapolis Motor Speed Way).
Sinclair Wheeler, local DJ and a personal friend, took over the stage and elevated the energy to its raging levels. A-trak followed with some incredible beats and dirty sounds, making him one of the crowds favorite. Steve Aoki took the stage next… man on man did he put on a killer show. Cakes were thrown and bodies surfed the crowd, all while the Indy 500 racers geared up and lined up for the 99th race. Kaskade followed the green flagged and took us well into the race. Though, honestly we just watched Kaskade thump the VIP stage into a close crash. Thanks to Miller Lite VIPs were able to enjoy the music with complimentary drinks, to make up for the stage inability to rage up. Dynamic duo Milk N Cookies closed the Snake Pit down with their dirty bass and party sound. Check out our personal experience and if you there… tell us who you loved the most!!
As beloved fans of EDM, we can’t wait to reunite our bodies to the beats of Kaskade, Steve Aoki & finally catch A-Track live. Over the last couple of years the Indy 500 SnakePit has brought us an incredible line up of DJs, from Afrojack to Benny Benassi to Diplo and now Kaskade, Steve Aoki & A-track. It is pretty clear that we, and hundreds of other EDM fans, will be buring like wild fire the grounds of the Indianapolis Motor speed way – specifically round 3 – to the production and incredible music of these DJs.
So get ready! Pack your water bottles (It’s a hot day and long day, so remember to hydrate), comfortable (but cute) shoes, SPF (because nobody likes a farmers tan) and your favorite people (because this party is way more fun with friends). Tickets are still available here & get them in advance because waiting in line is not cute!
As much as we love the glitz and glam of the mainstream shows and parties, we too LOVE the sensual red-light-district feeling underground music creates. I mean, close your eyes and play some Chus & Ceballos (which we are as we write this post) and let the thumpy bass and deep notes seduce your mood!

We’re seriously in love with Vegas… I mean we got married there, so we love it! Now we love it even more!! The SLS is taking ownership of part of the Las Vegas strip and we’re incredibly excited! The lux concept will be providing Vegas lovers unreal rooms, clubs, restaurants, and places to hang out! Hotel designer Philippe Start describes the hotel as a new tasty powerful drink… and we like:
“There are some legendary, classic cocktails: the Manhattan, the Gimlet, the Cosmo, and there is a brand new one – SLS Las Vegas,” said Starck. “It’s strong and sparkling with millions of bubbles of life, stories, adventures and surprises. It’s fire and leaves you burnt of pleasure. It’s soft and romantic and leaves you a taste of love and honey in the mouth. It’s acid and you will lose your mind but so elegant that it shall change your life.”
With three different suite towers, The Lux, World and Story Tower, multiple restaurants, pools and killer nightlight the SLS Las Vegas has easily become the sexiest new attraction of the Las Vegas strip!
2014 award makes XS first venue to achieve the top honor four times!!!
Las Vegas – XS, the sophisticated nightclub in Encore at Wynn Las Vegas, has been named the No. 1 nightclub in the country based on Nightclub & Bar’s Top 100 rankings. The annual list, based on revenue, was announced today, following a monumental year for the renowned venue, yet again breaking the revenue record with an estimated excess of $90 million in 2013.
“It’s an absolute honor to be named the top nightclub in the country for the fourth time by Nightclub & Bar,” said Jesse Waits, managing partner of XS and Tryst nightclubs. “It’s no secret that nightlife venues in Las Vegas can have a short lifespan, and to remain one of the most profitable venues as we celebrate our five year anniversary is an accomplishment we are incredibly proud of. Our team continues to stay ahead of the trends, programs the best DJs in the world, and offers a level of service that can only be found inside Wynn Las Vegas. I truly believe that’s what sets us apart and attributes to this continued success.”
This marks the first time a venue has earned the top spot for a fourth time. XS was first named the No. 1 nightclub in 2010 following its debut year of operation as well as in 2011 with estimated revenue of $50-60 million each year. Last year, it again rose to the top with record-breaking revenue between $80-90 million.
The 2014 Top 100 list was crafted following a comprehensive process in which nightlife venues submitted survey information to Nightclub & Bar during fall 2013, followed by a lengthy analysis throughout the first two months of 2014. Nightclub & Bar engaged a third-party team of statistical experts who used a detailed formulaic approach to review the data submitted by each venue and develop the Top 100. To view the full 2014 Top 100 List, click HERE!
With its chic vibe and fashionable reputation, XS remains the place to see and be seen for celebrities, glitterati, locals and tourists alike. Dubbed “Las Vegas dance’ music mecca” by MTV News, the nightclub features 24 resident DJs in the 2014 roster ranging from Avicii, David Guetta, Zedd and more.
XS is open Friday through Monday from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m., located on The Esplanade at Encore. Tickets can be purchased in advance HERE! Table reservations are highly recommended (702-770-0097). For more information, visit the XS official website!
