RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- Northern Nevada's newest nightspot is officially opening its doors to the public this Friday. News 4 got a sneak peak Tuesday of the 15 million dollar nightclub.
LEX Nightclub is one of a kind and there's nothing else like it in Northern Nevada. Directors say the 25,000 square-foot nightclub will be a game-changer for entertainment and nightlife out here. "We just saw a new opportunity to attract a new customer to the Grand Sierra Resort and we just saw a demand for this type of entertainment, and this type of fun in the market,” said director of nightlife marketing Ben Schwartz.
The Grand Sierra Resort and Casino hopes to take over nightlife in Northern Nevada. LEX Nightclub is the casino's latest investment and it’s unlike anything in our area. "33 VIP tables, 3 bars, one definite difference is the pool in the middle, which is right now a water feature,” said Schwartz. “We have different things happening in the pool, we have a plexiglass dance floor over the pool."
Directors say the casino invested in every detail of the club, including a million dollar lighting system. “We have lights people have never seen before, we have rotating lights, lights that go the music,” said Schwartz. “About100 different lighting throughout the nightclub, you really have to see and check it out to really understand it."
1100 people will get to fill LEX Nightclub every Thursday through Sunday after Friday’s grand opening. Regular cover charge will be 30 dollars per person, but will always be half off for locals.
And throughout the next couple months, several big names are already scheduled to appear at LEX. "Eric D-Lux, a big DJ out of LA, we're really excited to have him, he headlines venues down in Las Vegas, he's really good,” said Schwartz. “We also have Tommy Lee and DJ Arrow for July 25, and then we have the Chainsmokers for the first week of UNR, on August 22."
The grand opening of LEX Nightclub is this Friday at 10 pm. A few tickets are still available and opening night is a one-time-only 50 dollar cover charge. For more information visit http://www.lexnightclub.com/
