Anyone who attended the 34th annual Nightclub & Bar Show will have noticed big changes, not just to the schedule and features, but to the energy.

It can be difficult to put “vibes” into words. Energy, after all, is a feeling. But while it may seem intangible or nebulous, it has no less impact of an impact on us all than trying a new product or experiencing an innovative service.

The 2019 Nightclub & Bar Show was imbued with an electric, infectious positive vibe. The energy—from the Keynote Room to the surrounding conference rooms to the Expo Hall and throughout the city—kept spirits buoyed. Our industry came together and was genuinely excited to do so.

Partygoers eager to ride the great vibes to another party headed to Jewel. Cîroc launched their latest limited-edition vodka expression at Jewel, Summer Watermelon. The refreshing flavor will certainly lend itself to refreshing cocktail builds as the weather grows warmer. Superstar DJ Steve Aoki headlined the first Platinum Party of this year’s Nightclub & Bar Show, tempting attendees to stay on the dance floor well into the early hours of Tuesday morning.

The second Platinum Party was held Tuesday evening at new Vegas hot spot On The Record. The eclectic venue features a DJ booth made of out a vintage Rolls Royce, a wall of speakers made from boomboxes, private karaoke rooms that each represent a different decade, a double-decker bus on the outside patio that serves as a bar, and a speakeasy with a secret entrance. Crown Royal Peach (great with ginger ale) and Corona Premier sponsored the event alongside Partender. DJ Skribble rocked ‘90s hit after ‘90s hit, whipping the crowd into a frenzy with every memory-jogging track.
