Opening: Drai's After Hours Returns Home to The Cromwell Las Vegas

A legend returns home, as Victor Drai’s famed After Hours heads back to its original underground space now set inside the new Cromwell, the Strip’s only stand-alone boutique hotel property.  The re-grand-opening of Drai’s After Hours will be on June 19 in conjunction with Insomniac/EDC as the Official After Hours venue for the global phenomenon.  

Drai's After Hours

Drai’s After Hours was a pioneer 15 years ago when it first opened its doors underneath the bustle of the Las Vegas Strip, and the famed venue will again transform the late night/early morning scene in its original space now located within The Cromwell. Having built a reputation for being the first to bring House music to the Strip, Drai’s After Hours kicks-off the return to its underground home with an opening line-up featuring the most exciting string of underground techno performances of EDC weekend. The artist line-up includes:

Thursday, June 19th - Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin, & Kill Frenzy
Friday, June 20th - Dubfire & Nicole Moudaber 
Saturday, June 21st - The Martinez Brothers 
Sunday, June 22nd - Chris Garcia & Erik Hagleton 

“There is nowhere else in the world than Las Vegas where we could create venues where our guests can party with us for nearly all 24 hours of the day,” explains Victor Drai.  “When I first opened After Hours 15 years ago, I wasn’t even sure if it would be a success…the concept was so new and untried.  Now here I am re-opening the club with a great week of artists and music at The Cromwell, the most beautiful new hotel on the Strip.” 

Having recently transformed the nightclub scene 11 stories above the Strip with the opening of his newest creation, Drai's Beach Club • Nightclub, Victor Drai will now uniquely be able to entertain guests around the clock:

10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. – Drai’s Beach Club
10:00 p.m. – 5: 00 a.m. – Drai’s Nightclub
Midnight – 8:00 a.m. – Drai’s After Hours

At over 13,000 square feet, After Hours features two new bars, and four rooms showcasing two different music formats.  Adorned with over-the-top opulence of black and gold décor, the ambience and style reflects the style of a vintage mansion.  Accents include pin-up photography, animal print embossed booths and palm trees, while the 55 bottle service tables encourage intimate social lounging throughout. While the new After Hours has been re-designed and updated, Victor Drai has kept to his promise to leave most of the venue in-tact.  “It is just too loved by our guests to make dramatic changes,” he explains.  “We have made it even better, but it’s still the After Hours that everyone will remember.”
