Virgin Hotels’ Élia Beach Club Debuts This Weekend

The stacked grand opening DJ performance lineup for Elia Beach includes Sofi Tukker and Sam Blacky on Friday, Lane 8 on Saturday, with Loco Dice and Deadmau5 on Sunday.

The weekend is sure to be a showstopper, hosted by Sir Richard Branson, and kicking off with performances on the property the night prior to the beach club’s debut by Christina Aguilera and Flo Rida.

An array of top VIP and celebrity talent is expected to attend the opening weekend of Elia, enjoying poolside Cabanas and Mediterranean inspired vibes.

Vegas eagerly awaits the unveiling of this magical, ethereal new hospitality destination. Curated by the partners and designed by the discerning eye of Francois Frossard, Élia Beach Club takes its inspiration from Mykonos, Greece, remaining in-step with its namesake, Elia, Mykonos’ largest beach.

Known for its clear, blue surf and scenic sandy landscape, Élia Beach Club will emanate those sensations through its ambiance. Frossard, who also designed the notable Joia Beach, as well as some of the most widely lauded institutions to have graced Miami, brought the partners’ visions to life through hand-selected decor detail and a customized design aesthetic. 

My partners and I are looking forward to building Élia Beach Club into one of the best beach club venues, not only in Las Vegas, but in the United States. We aim to deliver a top-tier atmosphere, first-class service and an unbelievable experience, remaining true to everything that the Virgin Hotels brand stands for,” said Mio Danilovic, Creator/Managing Partner, Élia Beach Club. 

The Mykonos-inspired decor and ambiance will not only impress guests but transport them to an international paradise. With this in mind, the team set out to create the ultimate getaway destination, paired with the internationally coveted brand of Virgin Hotels as its Las Vegas backdrop and so Élia Beach Club was born.

With a musical focus on all genres of house music, a relaxed yet energetic dance vibe inspired by international beach destinations will create a rhythmic, transformational experience for guests, different from any other Vegas pool and nightlife offering. 

From the wood framed and draped fabric cabana design, to the jute woven poufs, and stonework accents, the global design influences differentiate Élia Beach Club from the typical pool atmospheres, offering a photographic backdrop at every turn.  

While a large percentage of the market is splintered right now, musically and psychologically they are looking for a mature cultured experience. It is evident the experience of Covid-19 and quarantine has changed people – – their priorities, interests and social interactions – and we need to do things a little differently to reflect that,” said Michael Fuller, Managing Partner, Élia Beach Club. 

With a focus on tourists, hotel guests and locals, we aspire to be the friendliest venue in Las Vegas for a truly carefree, enjoyable guest experience.

The musical style of DJs and notable guest performers will incorporate tropical house, world house and deep  house, with a mindset of escape, dancing and just good vibes filling the atmosphere of the venue.

Overlooking the Mediterranean-colored pool, the music will infiltrate the venue elevating the  experience to another level, literally. The floorplan allows for all cabana guests to feel integrated into the vibe  of the performance, as well as patrons that choose to stay at pool level. Every guest, whether pool level or at a VIP cabana, will be offered an immersive, accessible and welcoming experience. The entire venue will evoke an exclusive feel.

Health and wellness elements will also be incorporated into both the menu and the programming, with cabanas converted for massage and wellness services. Grand opening weekend will feature poolside massage and cryotherapy from Artha Sanctuary, a top Los-Angeles based wellness destination.

The world continues to raise its level of focus on consciousness, environmentalism and overall selfcare, fitness and wellness practices, so the founders are committed to bringing elements reflective of these criteria into the venue, such as group meditation and yoga throughout the pool season as well.

Élia Beach Club will initially be open as of June 10th, Thursday – Sunday from 11:00 a.m. – 6:00pm.
