The weekend got off to an early start with the decadent party that celebrated the opening of Delano Las Vegas. The invite-only grand opening celebration was hosted by actress Jaime King and celebrity fashion designer Charlotte Ronson.  Ronson was showcasing her Spring/Summer 2015 collection, previously only shown at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. The Delano entrance was turned into a runway and guests were able to enjoy the show inside of this unique and beautiful setting.

The fashion show was only the beginning as Delano had a big surprise for party guests. Multi-Platinum musical group, MAGIC was the big surprise and they put on a fantastic live, up-close and personal performance for guests. That was not the end of the musical surprises for the evening as DJ Samantha Ronson also made an appearance for the big event.

To take in the entire Delano Las Vegas experience, guests were treated to the tasty hand crafted cocktails from Franklin and dishes from the farm-to-table eatery Della’s Kitchen. The real treat of the evening was taking in the experience of Franklin, which is a stunning lounge, that is the perfect fit for Delano and makes for not only a wonderful spot for an evening cocktail, but with live DJ performances a more casual spot that you can relax with friends all night long.

Not far from Delano the iHeartRadio Festival was taking place and the lineup was about as star-filled as any concert you will ever attend. Guests were treated to performances from; Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, Neon Trees, One Direction, Coldplay, Paramore, Usher and many more on September 19th and 20th at MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Ariana Grande at 1OAK

Friday night 1OAK Nightclub at The Mirage was the place to be in Las Vegas as it was home to two parties on this huge weekend. Ariana Grande was hosting the Official iHeartRadio After Party and 1OAK owner Richie Akiva made his way to Las Vegas for birthday party number two after celebrating the previous night at 1OAK LA with guests such as Jamie Foxx and Diddy. Big Sean was in attendance for the Las Vegas birthday bash and performed four of his songs and then led the crowd in singing “Happy Birthday” to Richie. That was not the end of the festivities for the evening as Ariana jumped on stage to go give an impromptu live performance to really put the packed house at 1OAK into frenzy.

The IHeartRadio partying didn’t end at 1OAK as HAZE Nightclub at ARIA had its own Official iHeartRadio After Party with a special performance by recording artists Nico and Vinz. The duo finished off their incredible performance at iHeartRadio then made their way over to HAZE where they walked the red carpet and took photos for photographers and fans and then hit the stage to perform their hit single "Am I Wrong." After their performance the duo celebrated at their table and took photos with fans.

Harry Styles of One Direction arrived at 1 a.m. Friday evening and clearly heard how amazing the newly opened Delano Hotel is as that is where he spent his weekend. To show his taste in food is as good as his taste in rooms, Harry requested Chef Akira Back’s Kumi Restaurant. Kumi, at that time closed for the evening, yet opened for him and sent Chef Akira Backs top menu picks to his suite. Other band members chose to stay next door at the glorious Four Seasons at Mandalay Bay.  Saturday evening Styles opening iHeartRadio concert came straight to Kumi with friends for dinner enjoying the miso black cod, white fish tempura, yellowtail serrano, Kobe tataki and the Toban Filet.

Kumi is certainly a favorite among the stars as Vince Vaughn enjoyed dinner with his wife and friends on Saturday night and Mark Anthony celebrated his birthday their last week.

Just another typical Las Vegas weekend, right? Well maybe a little more special than most but with the addition of locations such as Delano, the experiences in Sin City just keep elevating!
