With three weeks remaining until Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather face off at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, a lot of the conversation has been built off of the secondary economy of this mega fight between two of the top combat athletes in the world. From sponsorships, to Pay-per-view pricing, to Conor McGregor being given a residency at Wynn Casinos. Another aspect oddly enough ties in with that concept as the battle for nightlife superiority has come to the city of neon lights, as some of the biggest clubs on the strip are going for the biggest names they can for what may be one of the biggest weekends of the year for the home of combat sports.
The list for this weekend (per TMZ) includes.
Drai’s — 50 Cent, Trey Songz and Jeezy
Hakkasan — Steve Aoki
Omnia — Calvin Harris
JEWEL — J. Cole
Hard Rock — Amber Rose, YFN Lucci and Allen Iverson
SATURDAY (after the fight):
Drai’s — Chris Brown
XS Nightclub — The Chainsmokers
Hakkasan — Travis Scott
Marquee – DJ Mustard
The LIGHT — Rick Ross
JEWEL — Jamie Foxx
Rehab Beach Club — Diddy
Encore Beach Club at Surrender – Conor McGregor
With the Diddy party being between $1,500-20,000 per table, one has to wonder the potential take the city may receive from this weekend, but no one can deny that this has been a cornerstone for a major year in sports for Las Vegas, from the announcement and launch of the Vegas Golden Knights, to the soon arriving Las Vegas Raiders, as well as landing the Alvarez and GGG championship fight in September. Its been a good year to be a Las Vegas sports fan!
