The final days of 2012 at Hyde Bellagio were star-studded, with partygoers including 11-time Olympic medalist and champion Ryan Lochte (sadly, not in a Speedo, as far as one could tell) and sisters Hilary and Haylie Duff at the hotspot on Sunday, Dec. 30.

Australian DJ, singer and dancer Havana Brown performed a set for partygoers; Brown was a surprise guest at Pitbull at the Pearl at the Palms on Friday, Dec. 28 (they collaborated on her hit “We Run the Night.”) The Duff sisters enjoyed cocktails and danced with friends at a table below the fireplace.

Lochte, sporting a pinstriped suit jacket and black fedora mobster-style, danced atop a leather couch and partied at a VIP table with pro gambler Don Johnson. Partying nearby in another VIP booth was UFC President Dana White, who had just wrapped up an action-packed weekend at UFC 155.

Entertainer and musician Christopher “Big Black” Boykin (“Rob & Big”) kicked off NYE weekend at Hyde on Dec. 29, while Common and The Sayers Clubheadlined NYE. Thanks to contributing photographer Tony Tran for his photo gallery.
