Arriving around 12:30 a.m., Afrojack was escorted to the main stage, where the packed nightclub awaited his debut. About an hour later, the cheering died down as fans hushed to hear the first moments of the Dutch sensation's set. The DJ kept the crowd mesmerized not only with his beats, but with his special surprises--including the appearance of two male contortionists who wowed the crowd with their jaw-dropping moves, a first for Hakkasan Nightclub.

With the energy in the room high and fans on their feet dancing and singing throughout the night, the turntable star's kick off was surely celebrated. As his set was in full party mode, a dozen Hakkasan Nightclub's stunning model cocktail waitresses joined him in the DJ booth and presented him with a large bottle of champagne. Eager  to share this moment with his fans, Afrojack jumped atop the DJ booth, uncorked the bottle and showered the crowd.

Adding to the first-of-its kind experience, Hakkasan Nightclub unveiled two new LED screens on the suspended performance stage, displaying intricate graphics and some of the artist's lyrics, further mesmerizing the crowd.

Earlier in the evening, Hakkasan Las Vegas Restaurant was also buzzing, as pop singer, songwriter and new uncle to brother Kevin’s baby girl, Nick Jonas was spotted dining with a few friends. Dressed casual wearing a striped Polo shirt and fitted dark jeans, the 21-year-old performer and his companions entered the modern Cantonese culinary mecca just before 9 p.m. where they were seen enjoying some of Hakkasan’s most favored vegetarian selections such as the Vegetarian steamed dim sum platter. Jonas was seen sipping on signature cocktails and socializing with his group throughout the night before exiting the venue just after 11 p.m.
