The brainchild of nightlife promoter Sean Christie (Blush), Surrender makes the most of the Encore Beach Club by night with an electro-dance scene that recruits hip-hop and TV stars for weekly parties and DJ events. The Encore Beach Club complex that includes Surrender Nightclub cost an estimated $67-million to build and spans an impressive 60,000-square feet of outdoor space. The adults-only pool is also be home to a new nightclub, Surrender, with direct access to the outdoor space in warmer spring and summer months that will hopefully draw-in a new crowd of summer revelers looking to splash and spend both day and night.
The space takes a more eclectic approach to dance club architecture with ornate VIP booths, private banquettes and grown-up décor that's far more now than the mostly all-white or black dance clubs like LAX or Pure. French regency meets chaotic Van Gough colors in a massive bar facing a glass-enclosed DJ booth that spins rotating tracks of techno and house. The crowd is much more Wynn, think Real Housewives meets Ed Hardy-wearing CEOs, that tend to party even harder than their 20-something competition. The soundsystem is one of the best on the strip, built by John Lyons with a complimentary light system that beams laser lights throughout the indoor and outdoor lounge and dance spaces.
Resident DJ Steve Aok and Avicii host a weekly Friday night party called Aoki’s House that one of the best original house scene on the strip.
Currently the club’s website offers a very straightforward yet expensive approach to table reservations online. If staying at the Wynn, book directly through the hotel for a better price.
