[NIGHTLIFE] THURSDAY, APRIL 18
There was no room in post-EDM Las Vegas for Studio 54, one of the first — and most conservative — nightclubs on the Strip. So MGM Grand rightfully closed it; Angel Management Group sought to replace it with an audacious dining/nightlife hybrid, with help from the Hakkasan brand; and all three entities will debut the five-story Hakkasan Las Vegas on this preview evening. We can think of no better way to launch the nightclub portion than with new resident Deadmau5 in the booth. 10 p.m.; Hakkasan at MGM Grand, 3799 Las Vegas Blvd. South, www.hakkasanlv.com, $30-$50.
