Executive is third to leave Wynn Resorts in 2 weeks

Wynn Las Vegas has parted ways with another high-level nightclub executive, the company said today.

Encore Beach Club and Surrender nightclub managing partner Bob Mancari is no longer with the company, Jennifer Dunne, a spokeswoman for Wynn Resorts, said Wednesday. Dunne said the company had no further comment on the departure. Mancari is the third executive to leave Wynn in less than two weeks.

Mancari was operating Encore Beach Club and Surrender with Sean Christie, who also operates Blush Nightclub and Society Café. The $67 million pool-nightclub complex opened in May 2010.

The announcement comes a week after the company said it had “separated” from nightclub manager Cy Waits as managing partner of the Tryst Nightclub at Wynn and XS The Nightclub at Encore.

Waits was arrested Aug. 27 on suspicion of misdemeanor driving under the influence after police smelled marijuana coming from his vehicle. He was arrested with girlfriend Paris Hilton, who was arrested on a felony cocaine possession charge.

On the morning of Aug. 27, prior to the arrests, Wynn Resorts announced it had ended its partnership with nightlife entrepreneur Victor Drai. Drai owned a third of XS and Tryst nightclubs in Wynn and Encore, both of which he helped to design and develop.
