Swizz Beatz served as the special guest DJ at Monster Takeover in Marquee on Monday night in the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

Award-winning producer Swizz, wearing 24k-gold Monster headphones, took to the turntables for club anthems that kept the party going late into the night.

As Swizz led the party from the DJ booth, former NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal joined him and surprised revelers as he took to the mic to greet the club before heading to a VIP table on the dance floor.

Shaq posed for a photograph with resident DJ Eric D-Lux.

At sister hotspot Lavo in Palazzo, comedian Kathy Griffin was spotted dining with friends. They enjoyed chicken parmigiano, cheese ravioli, bread pudding and the signature Oreo zeppole.

Online personality iJustine also dined with a group at Lavo on Monday night, and they enjoyed Kobe meatballs, chicken parmigiano, steak and pastas.

Thanks to Al Powers of Powers Imagery for his photo gallery at Marquee.
