JET Nightclub inside the Mirage has seen it all during its nearly five-year run; outlandish parties like “Pole-a-palooza,” a stripper pole competition with a large cash prize, and celebs from Justin Timberlake to Britney Spears and Kim Kardashian.
Like every nightclub in Vegas, though, the excitement must come to an end at some point. For JET, that point is Sept. 5.
The club is scheduled to hold one last party, an all-out bash during Labor Day Weekend, then shut its doors. But the venue won’t be lost forever. JET will receive a full makeover and a little New York flair over the coming months before it reopens for New Year’s Eve as 1OAK Las Vegas.
New Yorkers may be familiar with the name 1OAK. The Butter Group, which is teaming up with current JET Nightclub management Light Group, owns several restaurants, lounges and nightclubs in New York City, North Carolina and Brazil and is bringing its cutting-edge style to the Las Vegas Strip.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with The Butter Group,” said The Light Group founder Andrew Sasson. “Combining The Light Group’s expertise and experience in service and management with The Butter Group’s edgy New York City style and energy, 1OAK Las Vegas will be a truly unique nightlife experience that will set new industry standards in Las Vegas.”
1OAK is a synonym for “one of a kind” and promises to bring that experience to Vegas. The club is known to be one of the more exclusive in New York and has décor to match. The walls of the New York club are padded with ostrich leather, the ceiling is made of strong oak (what else?) and the black lacquer bar has handmade accents that scream opulence.
International design firm Munge Leung is charged with bringing the 1OAK experience to Vegas and world-renowned artist Roy Nachum has been commissioned to create a one-of-a-kind piece for the club’s interior.
“1OAK has been, and continues to be, one of the world’s hottest clubs for the past four years, and we are thrilled to be expanding the brand into one of the most-celebrated entertainment destinations in the world, Las Vegas,” said Scott Sartiano, managing partner at 1OAK.
