Restaurateur and one-time Hollywood film producer Victor Drai’s most recent endeavor, the indoor-outdoor Drai’s Beach Club & Nightclub, a 65,000-square-foot destination located on the rooftop of The Cromwell Las Vegas, debuted with a splash on Memorial Day Weekend, 2014. With a maximum capacity of 4,500 persons and an impressive total setup, this might be the nightclub mogul’s most audacious and tech-driven venture to date.
Ten tall and textured palm trees, each uplit with a SGM G-Spot and set against the city lights and desert night sky, evoke something ancient and exotic — Roman columns or the pillars of Egypt’s Karnak temple complex. Considering the placement close to the pool, the G-Spot being IP65 rated is a well-chosen fixture for the purpose.
“We are creating a 360-degree experience,” Drai says. The project’s lighting designer, Stephen Lieberman, supports his statement: “No matter where you are in the space, you should feel like you’re part of the theatrical experience, whether that involves live performers, lighting or video,” Lieberman emphasizes.
