Singer and actor Justin Timberlake celebrated his bachelor party Thursday night at Surrender Nightclub in Steve Wynn’s Encore. The evening started at nearby Italian restaurant Sinatra, a culinary homage to Frank Sinatra.
At 11:45 p.m., the entourage of 25 made their way to next-door Surrender, where they partied in a private bungalow overlooking Encore Beach Club and Surrender’s summer Splash Dance Thursdays, when clubgoers are encouraged to wear swimwear.
Timberlake was all smiles sipping on his 901 Tequila (literally, as it is his brand), and his group enjoyed vodka and Red Bull. Some of his buddies changed from their suits into swim trunks to take a dip in the bungalow’s heated infinity pool. Timberlake, who is engaged to actress and fellow Barack Obama supporter Jessica Biel, also reportedly partied at Tryst in the Wynn while in town.
Timberlake’s latest film “Trouble With the Curve” with Oscar winner Clint Eastwood and Oscar nominee Amy Adams opened this weekend, and his annual PGA Shriners Children’s Hospital tournament in Summerlin tees off Oct. 1.
Also spotted at Surrender: music mogul Timbaland with his wife Monique. The two checked out the music by Rome of Sublime With Rome and made their way to Timberlake’s bungalow to say hello to his collaborator and friend.

Encore is nearly a mirror image of the Wynn Las Vegas, from the brown glass exterior to the style and placement of the logo — and it's just as luxurious as the original. Some call Encore the younger, hipper sister of Wynn.
Located steps from Wynn Las Vegas, yet under the same roof, Encore's fanciful and intimate atmosphere is unlike anything anywhere, with an environment that is uniquely Wynn and distinctly Encore.
Steve Wynn spared no detail in his newest property when designing Encore. The casino floor is decorated in rich reds, browns and purples with mosaic butterflies embedded into the marble floors and fresh flowers greeting guests in the casino atrium.
Luxury doesn't end of the casino floor. Encore boasts 2,034 impeccable guest rooms and suites. The standard suites resort accommodations are 700 square feet with the larger suites measuring in at 5,800 square feet. Standard suites guest rooms feature plasma screen TVs, high-end bath products, spectacular views of the Strip, and also plush linens and mattresses, which can be purchased in the Encore store, in case you can't get enough.
Dining options include Chef Theo Schoenegger's fine Italian cuisine at Chef Theo Schoenegger's, Sinatra's and the pan-Asian café creations of Chef Jet Tila at Wazuzu.
Guests can also dine on steaks and chops at star Botero Steak. At Switch, Encore's French restaurant, the walls come to life mid-meal and your surroundings appear to change before your eyes. For decadent, hip Asian dining before or after a night at one of resort’s ultra-chic nightclubs, visit Andrea’s, the newest dining experience at Encore.
XS headlines Encore's nightlife and pool party scene while Danny Gans takes care of humor and entertainment. Encore also features two of the most celebrated nightlife experiences in Vegas, XS Nightclub and Surrender. Both feature main room dance floors that flow outside to pools, patio spaces and gaming areas.
When the temperature rises, don’t miss Encore Beach Club, the premier daylife destination that features three tiered pools and luxurious cabanas and bungalows with private infinity pools.
Encore Esplanade features 11 high-end retail stores, with brands like Hermes, Chanel, Loro Piana and Rock, and Republic Piaget luxury watches. The resort also has a Forbes Five-Star spa, a salon and an 18-hole, on-site golf course, which is adjacent to the Wynn.
