Hotel mogul Steve Wynn and his wife, Andrea Wynn, celebrated the first anniversary Wednesday night of Andrea’s, the Asian dining hotspot named for Mrs. Wynn, at Encore.

Guests were welcomed with champagne, cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres, which included some of executive chef Joseph Elevado’s most popular dishes, including tuna and crispy rice, the fried burdock roll, the king crab and fluke roll, the spicy vegan tofu roll, Wagyu beef sliders, personal favorites saikyo miso cod lettuce wraps and flame-broiled New York strip and more.

The Fizz specialty cocktail — Grey Goose vodka, elderflower liqueur, freshly squeezed lime juice and soda — was previewed before it is added to the bar menu March 1.

Sean Christie, whose Las Vegas Nightlife Group is partnered with Wynn Las Vegas on Andrea’s, introduced Andrea Wynn as “the woman who made it all possible” after acknowledging to guests the large photograph of her eyes that graces the 16-foot LED screen behind the bar.

Wynn welcomed guests and thanked Christie, chef Joseph, GM Roy Saunders and the staff for a fantastic year and expressed how she looks forward to many more.

She then introduced the featured entertainment, five-time Grammy Award nominee Skylar Grey, who sat at a baby grand piano, brought into Andrea’s for the party, and opened with Nancy Sinatra 1960s hit “Bang Bang.” Her set also included a cover of Eminem’s hit “Love the Way You Lie” featuring Rihanna.

Steve Wynn praised Grey for her performance, and afterward, she sat at a table in a small group and enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and dessert. Guests included Wynn Las Vegas President Maurice Wooden, Roger Thomas, Larry and Camille Ruvo, Janie and Marc Schorr, Leora and Justin Blau, Sheldon and Stephen Cloobeck and more.

Michael Shulman finished out the night spinning hits of the 1960s and ’70s. The party then transitioned next door to Surrender Nightclub for the popular Wednesday night industry party.

Thanks to Aaron Garcia for his photo gallery from Andrea’s first anniversary.
