28 LASVEGASWEEKLY.COM MARCH 612, 2014 SHARE BY CLAIRE HART CLUB HOPPING Nightlife News & Notes Nightclub & Bar magazine announced its Top 100 list last week, and for the fourth time, XS at Encore had the highest rev- enue of any American nightclub, with earnings above $90 million. Marquee landed just below XS, bringing in $85-$90 million (last year the two were tied for the top spot), followed by its big-sister club, Tao ($50-$55 million), ahead of No. 4 Surrender by only an estimated $5 million. In total, Las Vegas landed seven party spots in the top 10 and 24 overall. Next year, Hakkasan and Light will qualify for o icial placement, the former a likely challenger to XS' chart-topping reign. Marquee packs on the news this week: Bass/EDM DJ Carnage recently announced his semi- regular Monday residency, Black and White, starting on March 24. And Kaskade kick-starts both his Summer Lovin' residency and the dayclub's o icial season on April 5. Too impatient? The wet spot will actually be open weekends this month starting March 7, thanks to the temperature-controlled QDome. In other pool-party news, Bare at Mirage and Liquid at Aria unlock their doors on March 13. Share Nightclub hosts HER, which honors and features local female performers, at 7 p.m. on March 8. Tickets are available at hrc.org/heronstage. And on March 13, the Swedish House Maia movie Leave the World Behind will have its only local screening at Palms' Brenden Theatres. –Mike Prevatt OPENING OF DOUBLE BARREL ROADHOUSE We all love being fi rst, right? Score some bragging rights at this new Strip-side watering hole, which offi cially opens its doors at Monte Carlo's new roadside plaza on Friday. Created by the same people behind Bellagio's Hyde nightclub and lounge (and the forthcoming SLS), Double Barrel features an eclectic mix of American cuisine, "strong" drinks and live entertainment. Get that Instagram account ready. March 7, 11 a.m., free. SPRING BREW'S BEST HANDCRAFTED BEER FESTIVAL AT MONTELAGO VILLAGE Spend your Saturday sipping some quality suds lakeside at the hoppy fundraiser, which benefi ts local nonprofi t New Vista. The lineup features regional heavy-hitters like Firestone Walker, Left Coast and Uinta, with the local brew scene rep- resented by Banger, Big Dog's, Boulder Dam and more. March 8, 2 p.m., 1 p.m. (VIP), $30 general admission, $40 VIP. CHAMPAGNE BRUNCH: SEXY PAJAMA PARTY EDITION AT LAVO We'd tell you to just jump out of bed and head down to Palazzo for some mimosa-heavy day- time debauchery, but this is a sexy pajama party. Plus, liquid courage doubles as liquid motivation, as the fi rst 100 ladies in sexy PJs get a free glass of PJ (Perrier-Jouet) Champagne. In the booth: DJ C-LA. March 8, doors at 2 p.m., free. OPENING DAY AT ENCORE BEACH CLUB Encore's chlo- rinated carousal starts early and in earnest this Saturday, and the current weather forecast is 75 degrees and mostly sunny. You might not score a tan, but you'll get a party, espe- cially with Jay Z DJ Jus Ske musically directing it. March 8, noon, $22 men, $12 women. TRITONAL AT MARQUEE Name-check a trance act and you're already probably thinking of the Netherlands, which is the China of trance-DJ breeding, or some other Euro club capital, but surely not rootsy, blues-y, twangy Austin, Texas. And yet, Dave Reed and Chad Cisneros of Tritonal, prolifi c creators of ethereal, blippy, surging synth anthems, hail from the Lone Star State capital, as likely to be Texan heroes as General Santa Anna. By trading in their lassos for glow rope, they've helped make Austin a dynamic American culture hub, and on Saturday, they'll perform at another one—Las Vegas. March 8, 10 p.m., $40 men, $20 women. GREEN LANTERN AT XS Despite its latest success as an American EDM destination, Encore still occasionally books DJs with a knack for identifying slow-and-low breakbeats and chest-beating rhymes that move dancefl oors—like Atlanta hip-hop and open-format jock Green Lantern (aka James D'Agostino), who knows what the public wants thanks to his radio pedigree and his adaptability to music trends—be they trap, dubstep or even EDM. March 9, 10 p.m., $30 men, $20 women. WINE BAR HAPPY HOUR AT TERRA VERDE Ever cozy up to an enomatic machine, which makes drinking wine a lot like (and even more fun than) the by-the-ounce experience at your local fro-yo spot? Terra Verde inside Green Valley Ranch makes it fairly affordable and enables some post-workday steamblowing. Buying a $10 enomat- ic card gets you $20 in credit, good for sampling 32 inter- national wines at volumes of your choosing. We went small and managed a prolifi c running of the wine bar's interactive taps. You, conversely, may choose to blow your allotment on savoring an Italian varietal. Or you may eschew wine alto- gether—cocktails start as low as $6, and specifi c appetizers are half-off as well. Monday-Friday, 5-7 p.m. GREATEST PARTY ON EARTH AT 1 OAK Find some three- ring fun at the Mirage nightspot on Tuesday, when the big top comes to life with performers, (stuffed) animals and "sexy clowns." DJ Clinton Sparks serves as the circus ring- master, playing both host and his beats. March 11, doors at 10:30 p.m., $40 men, $30 women.
