The Oscar’s are reserved for the Hollywood film elite. But the nightclub and bar industry has their own brand of national awards annually in Las Vegas.
This year, Steve Wynn’s XS nightclub at the Encore in Las Vegas was the big winner that swept all seven nightclub categories at last week’s 2010 Nightclub & Bar Awards at the industry convention at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
XS won Mega-Club of the Year and New Club of the Year honors. Tao, at the Venetian, won Nightclub of the Year.
Much-decorated DJ Paul Oakenfold, who joined Rain nightclub at the Palms Hotel & Casino last year, won Resident DJ of the Year honors. The Palms also won Single Promotion of the Year for Midsummer Night’s Dream.
The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas also took home the Ongoing Promotion of the Year.
Finally, Blush Boutique Lounge, located inside Wynn Las Vegas, gave Wynn properties three awards including the prestigious win for Lounge of the Year.
