LAS VEGAS – New York City’s preeminent lifestyle and hospitality company, The Butter Group has expanded to Las Vegas with the opening of their unique and state-of-the-art nightlife experience, 1 OAK Las Vegas at The Mirage Hotel & Casino. The Butter Group’s Scott Sartiano and Richie Akiva, along with business partner Ronnie Madra, have teamed up with the world’s leading hospitality, development and management innovators, The Light Group, to open the Las Vegas outpost of their Manhattan hot spot, 1 OAK.
1 OAK Las Vegas mirrors many interior details of its sister venue which were brought to life by leading international design firm Munge Leung. The floor entryways feature a black and white herringbone pattern. Additional features shared between the two properties are the calligraphy script passage from Darwin’s Origin of the Species that adorns the walls of club’s entryway, the 3D “letter wall” in the second room, as well as the same wagon-wheel-inspired chandeliers.
Drawing focus in the Main Room of 1 OAK Las Vegas is the large DJ booth bordered by caramel-colored, plush banquettes centrally located inside the nightclub, with each surrounding cocktail table made of Burl Wood that is stained with high gloss sheen and polished with brass accents. A second room offers the unique option of a separate, exclusive area, complete with its own DJ booth and bar.
World-renowned artist Roy Nachum was commissioned to create the exclusive artwork for the property. 13 one-of-a-kind oil paintings adorn the walls of the interior of 1 OAK Las Vegas. Described as evocative, sexual and revealing, the pieces hang in the 16,000-square-foot venue, offering juxtaposition to the dark color palette of 1 OAK Las Vegas' interior design. This marks Nachum's second project with The Butter Group; Nachum acted as creative director and the executor of the vision for the interior design of the original 1 OAK in New York City.
Notably, 1 OAK Las Vegas features the newest incarnation of the Avalon Series sound system by John Lyons Systems. The speakers have unparalleled power and clarity, unlike anything that currently exists in the industry, making 1 OAK Las Vegas the first nightclub with this system.
Priding itself on impeccable service and attention to detail, 1 OAK Las Vegas offers a variety of VIP services and features a vast bottle menu, including magnum and large format champagnes, presented to tables in a gold-plated treasure chest. Additional VIP touches include monogrammed pillows with table service for an added touch of luxury.
Sharing more than just similarities in design with its New York counterpart, 1 OAK Las Vegas hosts the hottest stars, DJ’s, athletes and musicians, including Ashton Kutcher, Katy Perry, Fergie and husband Josh Duhamel, Kanye West, Jessica Alba, Rachel Zoe, Laidback Luke, Dr. Dre, Pitbull, Adam Levine, David Arquette, Paris and Nicky Hilton, Lenny Kravitz, Diddy and John Legend. 1 OAK Nightclub at The Mirage presents weekly events in Sin City, including its Saturday night “I Love New York” party and its Industry Party “One Of A Kind Tuesdays,” attracting a mix of locals and world class travelers alike.
