Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium Has A Nightclub In The End Zone – Billboard

Gone are the days when a skybox or suite was considered the best seat at a game or stadium concert. When the new Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas officially opens this summer, perhaps the most coveted vantage point will be of the party taking place on the field.

A first in stadium entertainment, Wynn Resorts is partnering with the Las Vegas Raiders to create the Wynn Field Club, which spans the length of the North Zone and brings the ambiance of the nightclub scene to the city in a unique environment. Just imagine Wynn Nightlife talent like The Chainsmokers, Diplo, Alesso or Shaquille O’Neal aka DJ Diesel snatched straight from XS and Encore Beach Club, performing at halftime or pre/post event festivities for around 700 people enjoying bottle service while at a club. DJs can also be exposed to perform in front of 65,000 fans in the stadium.

The headliners have not yet been announced, although it is confirmed that the WFC will host its first event on July 10 as Garth Brooks christens the fully enclosed and air-conditioned stadium – completed in 2020, but has not again hosted an event at full capacity.

“[At] Wynn Field Club, ticketed guests will be able to enjoy a one-of-a-kind stadium experience in the sports and entertainment capital of the world,” said Brandon Doll, the Raiders’ senior vice president, strategy and business development. “The Wynn Field Club offers a high-energy nightlife experience in the center of the action. The nearly 11,000 square foot site will offer over-the-top access that can only be found in Las Vegas.

Wynn executives say WFC will have a private entrance with a dedicated VIP host. Inside any of the 29 booths or 18 dining tables, expect tiered seashell towers, pirate ship sushi boats, 40oz bone-in tomahawk steaks, pretzels giants, chicken tenders and even silver and black nachos from the Raider Nation. And you just to know there will be elaborate, themed bottle parades with confetti. On the tech side, there are 42 TVs, a 9ft by 35ft LED screen that’s just big enough to fit the name of the biggest lights spender, a 45,000 watt sound system and two DJ booths. . The audio system includes acoustic speakers, amplifiers and processors, in addition to specialized “silent” subwoofers for field booths. SJ Lighting’s theatrical and architectural lighting features 100 fixtures and lasers in traditional Raiders colors moving light throughout the venue.

The club’s original concept was conceived by the Raiders organization in June 2017 after visiting Wynn Nightlife’s Encore Beach Club, says Pauly Freeman, vice president of nightlife at Wynn.

Manica Architecture, who designed the Allegiant Stadium, created space for a nightclub within the structure.

“In May 2019, the Raiders issued a Request for Proposals for Hospitality Management Services to operate the site and create a one-of-a-kind premium customer experience,” Freedman said. “Wynn Nightlife has won the partnership with the Raiders and Allegiant Stadium after a comprehensive two-year bidding process and will launch the new club concept.”
