Jewel Nightclub, formerly the space of Haze Nightclub, has set an opening date at Aria: Thursday, May 19.
More details from this morning’s news release: The dual-level, 24,000-square-foot nightclub designed by Rockwell Group celebrates technology and design with modern luxury.
Jewel is set to host 2,000 guests in two spaces — a main club and mezzanine level with five themed VIP skybox suites. Tall, mirrored doors will welcome guests to Jewel, while VIP partygoers will walk through a tunnel of arched bronze portals that includes an antique glass chandelier.
In the main club, more than 1,400 square feet of LED ribbons will crown Jewel’s circular dome ceiling, and the space will feature wood-and-granite VIP banquettes in burgundy leather.
The DJ booth at Jewel includes a production wall with dual-sided LED video screens and effects lighting, allowing for 360-degree movement while the wall of light shape shifts and shines.
The main club bar is build from granite and wood and enclosed in a variegated herringbone pattern. A staircase of LED screens displaying abstract and themed images will lead guests to the mezzanine level.
The mezzanine level will feature five themed VIP skybox suites — the Blind Tiger, the Studio, the GOAT (Greatest of All Time), the Prestige and the Gallery — bar, dance floor and views of the first-floor main club.
Each skybox suite includes exclusive entrances for VIP guests. Guests of the Blind Tiger, a modern-day speakeasy, will enter through a secret doorway disguised as a custom-carved armoire. The Studio, a suite with velvet-lined walls, will feature album covers and artist-commissioned murals.
Sports memorabilia and artwork will line the lounge-style suite the GOAT set against brick, and the Gallery will display walls of fine art photography alongside leather seating.
The fifth skybox, the Prestige, an interpretation of the finer things in life, will be a jewel box-inspired space with champagne-hued tufted walls and seating with sparkle beneath a polished, brass-beaded chandelier.
