Las Vegas Lights After Game Parties At The Plaza Hotel & Casino

3840--LVLFC-Logo-Box-550-x-247 The Las Vegas Lights FC made their debut in the United Soccer League in 2018, bringing even more of a sports craze to the city of lights. They are the first professional soccer team in Las Vegas since 1979 when the Las Vegas Seagulls of the American Soccer League played so bringing soccer back to Las Vegas was a big deal for many soccer fans. The name for the team was decided from a poll which included other names Las Vegas Silver Club, Club Vegas, Viva Vegas, and Las Vegas Action. However, Las Vegas Lights was ultimately decided on as the name of the team. Plaza Hotel & Casino is a proud sponsor of the Las Vegas Lights. The Plaza logo can be found on the front of their match shorts. Zappos, a large internet retailer with deep downtown Las Vegas roots, also sponsors the team. The Lights play at Cashman Field, which is in downtown Las Vegas so it’s safe to say that the team has many ties to the downtown area. Most of the team’s players are from the United States or Mexico, but there are also team members from Canada, El Salvador, Japan and even some Las Vegas locals, bringing great diversity to the team. The team has taken over the hearts of many Las Vegas locals and people are finding new ways to celebrate and support the team. After each Las Vegas Lights home game in downtown Las Vegas, fans from everywhere can come over to the Post-Game Pitch, which is outside in front of The Plaza Hotel & Casino, next to the Porte-cochere, to celebrate the team. If you were at the game supporting the team in person, show your game ticket to the bar staff at The Omaha Lounge to receive a Las Vegas Lights specialty drink on us! You might even get to meet some of the players while you’re there as they’ve been known to come celebrate with their fans. Come share your passion for soccer and grab a cold one to celebrate the Las Vegas Lights! See Schedule  

Luau Beach Party

3842-Luau2018-550x247-LogoBox When you think of the ideal vacation destination I bet two of the places that cross your mind almost immediately are Las Vegas and Hawaii. Unfortunately, the two are separated by the state of California and the Pacific Ocean so it’s hard to hit Las Vegas and Hawaii both in one trip. But, what if we could bring an authentic Hawaiian Luau Beach Party to Las Vegas? Hawaii and Las Vegas have a few things in common, they’re both hot and they’re both an excellent place to relax and unwind with friends and family. That’s why The Plaza Hotel & Casino decided to throw a Luau Beach Party and combine the best of both worlds. This authentic Hawaiian Luau in Las Vegas brings the beach to you at The Plaza’s rooftop pool. At this authentic Hawaiian Luau you get to feast like a king! Some of the items featured on the menu were Hawaiian favorites such as macaroni salad, lomi salmon salad, and Huli Huli chicken, and taro rolls. One of the main events of the feast was Lechon, slow roasted suckling pig which is a Hawaiian delicacy. There were also plenty of Hawaiian inspired drinks like Piña Coladas and a cash bar for convenience. The Aloha $15,000 Slot Tournament was a tournament with $150 buy-in and offered prizes to first place all the way through the fifteenth place. The first place winner took home $5,500! The slot tournament isn’t the only form of entertainment that will took place Memorial Day Weekend. There were Polynesian dancers at the Hawaiian Luau, a live fireworks show, and buffet serving authentic Hawaiian right next to the Pool at the Plaza.

“The Man” by The Killers filmed at The Plaza

music video location plaza hotel casino the killers Having formed their band in Las Vegas, The Killers are well known in the Las Vegas music scene for their iconic rock sound and Vegas subject manner. Their new album being released on September 22, 2017, “Wonderful Wonderful” brings Plaza Hotel & Casino into the spotlight with them. This will be The Killers’ fifth album and it’s already looking like it will be a great success. the man by the killers music video The music video for the first single off the album is “The Man” and it was filmed almost exclusively at The Plaza. The video features shots of The Plaza lights and valet, as well as the showroom and casino. the plaza valet killers music video In the video, you can see lead singer of The Killers, Brandon Flowers, living large in Las Vegas amongst showgirls and high roller players in the casino (one of which is played by former Mayor Oscar Goodman.)

About The Killers

The Killers were formed in Las Vegas in 2001 and are familiar with the downtown Las Vegas scene. They even played as headliners at the first Life Is Beautiful festival in 2013. Since The Plaza has been a staple of downtown Las Vegas since the 1970’s, it was an obvious location choice for The Killers to film a music video with a classic old Vegas feel to it. plaza events center music video shoot In the beginning of the video you can see the camera panning to the entrance of The Plaza where you will see the hotel’s marquee letters and valet drive up. The whole music video is an ode to Las Vegas living. Classic scenes of Las Vegas are pictured throughout the video like members of the band having fun gambling in The Plaza Hotel & Casino and Brandon Flowers singing on stage surrounded by beautiful Las Vegas showgirls in The Plaza Showroom. the killers gambling at the plaza

Music History and The Plaza Hotel Casino

The Plaza’s music scene has been growing over the past few years. During Life Is Beautiful at the end of September, The Plaza will even hold a private MGMT concert for festival goers staying at the hotel. The hotel and casino has become a cultural hub for the artistic vibe of downtown Las Vegas. With its classic old Vegas feel mixed with modernism and artistic design, The Plaza is a great visual setting for bands and artists to shoot their music videos. The Plaza combines the best of both worlds, the old and the new. The fifth album from The Killers, “Wonderful Wonderful”, is being released towards the end of September 2017. To gather ideas for the album the band members
  • Brandon Flowers (lead vocals)
  • Dave Keuning (lead guitar)
  • Mark Stoermer (bass)
  • Ronnie Vanucci, Jr. (drums)
began working at their own Battle Born studios as well as renting houses in San Diego and Joshua National Tree Park. Brainstorming together for the album is an integral part of The Killers creative process. The album was recorded with Jackknife Lee, who was recommended to them by U2, in his private studio in California as well as at National Southwestern Recording Studios in Las Vegas. The album features guest artists like Mark Knopfler from Dire Straights and Australian musician Alex Cameron. “Wonderful Wonderful” has already received noteworthy praise. Mark Savage from BBC News referred to the album as The Killers most vital album since “Sam’s Town”, which was released in 2006. Q Magazine called it a “glossy indie-pop album with sonics as slick and glistening as a brand-new Vegas skyscraper”. The album has three singles, “The Man”, “Run for Cover” and “Wonderful Wonderful”. However, “The Man”, which was released on June 14, 2017 has definitely earned the most play time on the radio and has woven its way into fans hearts as one of The Killers big hits and a staple song of the summer. The Killers refer to the song as “funkier than anything we’ve ever done before”. With its synth liftoff, backup choir, the overdubs, and the unique bass, the song is different than any of the band’s previous hits. There is speculation about what the song means among fans. Some say that “The Man” is an ode to Brandon Flowers’ ego and others say the song is him making fun of himself and his fame. The intentionally overdone glitzy music video plays well into the second concept that The Killers are in on the joke of the egotistical aspect of the song. On the band’s Twitter profile they posted a photo of Brandon Flowers in front of The Plaza with the caption “Who’s the man?” The Killers had a fun time making their music video at The Plaza and many other stars have enjoyed filming at the hotel and casino over the years. Many movies such as Back to the Future II, Casino, Girl Next Door, and even The Hangover have been shot at The Plaza.
