Description of Venue- The name XS isn’t handed out to clubs that skimp on the décor or use fake gold. Nor is it given to clubs who boast only a few hundred guests and a drink menu that resembles the liquor aisle at the grocery store.
Clubs that don’t go the extra mile get names like Sparse or Meager.
But when you walk into XS at the Encore you don’t have to be worry about being in inadequate surroundings. This club, after all, didn’t come with a $100 million price tag because they went bargain shopping at Wal-Mart.
Steve Wynn spared no expense in building the priciest nightclub ever conceived. You get the sense that your salary pales in comparison to what was spent on this club from the moment you traverse the glitter-laden tile staircase at the entrance where a gold-plated mold of naked women (all of which were employees of XS) stretches out more than 15 feet.
The gold-plating doesn’t end there. There is also a gold-plated, 10-foot rotating chandelier that hovers over the main dance floor and three more gold-plated molds of a former sexy cocktail waitress that serve as decoration behind one of the club’s four bars.
The dance floor itself is likely bigger than your apartment at almost 1,100-square feet. The VIP booths that surround the dance floor are not your run-of-the-mill variety either. They are made with gold-embossed crocodile skin. (The one we stopped by played host to Leonardo DiCaprio just three weeks prior).
