Wynn Las Vegas Celebrates Its First New Years Eve

Newest Las Vegas Resort Hosts Intimate Events Throughout Resort

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 1 /PRNewswire/ — Can a mega-resort host an intimate night on New Year’s Eve? The newest resort, Wynn Las Vegas, did just that for their first New Year’s Eve celebration with a collection of intimate entertainment and dining options. From classic music and fantastic cuisines to DJs and dance floors, Wynn Las Vegas offered up the best in personal entertainment choices for guests to ring in the new year.

Those looking for quiet sophistication chose Five Diamond award winning restaurant Alex to celebrate the New Year. Chef Alex Stratta offered a magnificent seasonal New Year’s menu, a delectable six-course holiday feast inspired by the flavors of the French Riviera. Guests savored Roasted Sea Scallops with cauliflower puree and fresh white truffles and Braised Short Ribs of beef with potato gnocchi and red wine sauce in one of the most chic settings on the Las Vegas Strip.

In the center of it all was the Lake of Dreams, the 140-ft waterfall located on the mountain, which pulsated with music and lights throughout the evening. At 11:45 PM, guests sipping cocktails at Parasol Down watched as the lake began to bubble with anticipation of 2006. Other fantastic views were from Daniel Boulud Brassiere and SW Steakhouse with patio seating overlooking the action of the Lake of Dreams. Each restaurant offered a Five-course Gala seating prix fixe menu with music and dancing. At all vantage points, guests overlooking the Lake watched as an image of a giant clock rose out of the water to count down the last few seconds of 2005.

Guests looking for a feeling of nostalgia dined at the resort’s Country Club: A New American Steakhouse. With a rat pack theme, a band singing their favorite Sinatra tunes played as guests danced and dined on New York Strip, Black Sea Bass or Prime Rib of Beef while overlooking the best view on the strip, the 40-foot waterfall on the 18th hole on the Wynn Las Vegas Golf Course.

From old Vegas to new Vegas, guests looking for the hottest nightclub scene danced until the first hours of daylight in 2006 at Wynn’s new nightclub, Tryst. With a breathtaking 90-foot waterfall cascading into a secluded lagoon, guests at the nightclub toasted the New Year with champagne and danced to resident DJ Justin Hoffman.

“We were very excited that many of the 350,000 Las Vegas visitors choose to explore the experiences of Wynn Las Vegas as we made history celebrating our first New Year’s Eve,” said Denise Randazzo, vice president of public relations and advertising.
