Liaison Nightclub, the first gay nightclub in a casino, celebrated its official Grand Opening with Cox as the host. After walking the red carpet in a stunning kelly green Stephen Mikhail dress accentuated with lavish silver accessories and an Edie Parker clutch, the “Orange Is The New Black” actress joined nightlife impresario and club owner Victor Drai for a special ribbon cutting ceremony.

Once guests were ushered into the 7,000 square foot nightclub, Cox took time to dance, take photos with fans and relish in the evening at her VIP table on stage next to the DJ booth. From open to close, the night at Liaison included uninterrupted partying.

As the evening progressed, Drai’s Nightclub ­ located just across the street from Liaison and perched on the rooftop of The Cromwell ­ was revving up for a surprise performance from Iggy Azalea. Donning a black two-piece ensemble with sexy cutouts, metallic silver heels and her signature slicked back ponytail, Azalea walked onto the DJ booth stage for a two song set including her chart-topping hits “Bounce” and “Fancy.” The rapper strutted around the stage, keeping up with her dance crew and the vivacious audience despite having performed twice at the iHeart Radio Festival earlier that day.

After Azalea’s performance, Cox joined in on the action at Drai’s following her Liaison Nightclub revelry. Cox and Azalea immediately hit it off and started chatting in the VIP booth, dancing and enjoying drinks together. After posing for some photos, the two powerhouse stars partied through the night at Drai’s with a sea of Las Vegas’ most dedicated nightlife fans.
