Our Hearts are with Las Vegas in the Wake of Tragedy

Our hearts and prayers are with the victims of the horrific attack on more than 20,000 innocent festivalgoers and performers at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival in Las Vegas. More than 500 people have been shot and injured, and nearly 60 people were senselessly murdered in what is now the deadliest mass shooting on American soil in recent years. Sadly, those numbers are expected to rise.

Nightclub & Bar, which counts several Las Vegas locals as staff members, stands with the families and friends of the victims. We stand with the Las Vegas community that has been so tragically affected by an incomprehensible attack. And we stand with the hospitality industry that has been targeted for violence.

One person made the decision to show us the ugliest, most vicious side of mankind, but countless heroes – tourists and Las Vegas locals alike – immediately showed the selflessness of which humankind is capable.

Festivalgoers threw themselves over others to protect them. Passersby in vehicles opened their doors to help people escape and drive those who needed medical attention to hospitals. Businesses in the immediate area provided safe harbor. First responders ran towards danger with no concern for their own safety. Lines consisting of blood donors are wrapped around donation centers.

A lone gunman chose to perpetrate a cowardly act of hate against Las Vegas and our nation. It’s time for all of us in America to come together and show the world the kindness, generosity and selflessness of humanity.
