Tabu Ultra Lounge at MGM Grand was host to two 2013 AVN Awards parties over the weekend. On Friday, the spotlight was on adult-film starlets Gracie Glam, Kendall Karson and Nikki Phoenix for their pre-awards party, while legendary porn queen Jenna Jameson, minus UFC stud and baby daddy Tito Ortiz, hosted an after-party.
Glam, Karson and Phoenix arrived before midnight on the red carpet. Glam wore a green snakeskin print dress, Karson a tight pink dress and Phoenix a blue bandage dress. Inside the nightspot at a VIP table in front of the DJ booth, the trio took photos with fans while DJ Eric Forbes led the soiree into the early hours of the morning.
Shortly after midnight Saturday, Jameson arrived at Tabu for a girls night out in a glamorous floor-length, silver dress with a silver-and-black skull purse. She walked the arrivals carpet and after signing posters and taking pictures with her many fans.
Although she was in the VIP area inside Tabu, Jameson happily posed for photographs and signed autographs throughout the evening. Her group and she enjoyed Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label and partied at Tabu until the early hours with DJ 1337 leading the party.
