Entries in West Hollywood (1)




Evolve 2015, a unique gay New Year’s Eve celebration, is more than just a party, it’s a 3-day experience, and will bring men from more than 30 countries to "sin city" Las Vegas. This landmark event takes place December 30, 2014 – January 2, 2015 and promises to be the event of the year, both years! And for those who want to continue the fun, a weekend in West Hollywood, California, one of the hottest gay meccas in the U.S., continues the celebration January 2-4, 2015.

There are so many things that set Evolve apart from any other gay New Year’s Eve event, starting with the location. Over 40 million people visited Las Vegas last year, about 400,000 of them being gay, according to national averages, and that’s just the beginning. For first-time visitors to Las Vegas, there’s always the very pleasant surprise of finding so much more than slot machines and gaming tables. Las Vegas is home to some of the finest dining in the world including restaurants by Joel Robuchon, Guy Savoy, Mario Batali, Nobu Matsuhisa and Michael Mina. There are also amazing stage shows for all tastes such as Cirque du Soleil, Celine Dion and Elton John. And if shopping is your preference, Tiffany, Tom Ford, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Gianni Versace are just a few of the exquisite stores the city has to offer. In addition, you’ll find historical wonders of the desert awaiting your visit including The Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, Red Rock, Valley of Fire, even Mt. Charleston which features snow skiing….yes snow in Las Vegas! Who knew?


Evolve 2015 is unique for many reasons. First, the event takes place over three days and offers activities day and night especially formulated for Evolve 2015 participants. Additionally, Evolve will be promoted globally through gay media and booking agents on six continents, which means the event will truly be international. 

The host hotel is the fabulous MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, which was voted one of the best places to work in the U.S. for LGBT employees by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). As a matter of fact, there are more hotels in Las Vegas who have received this designation than any other city in the United States. The MGM Grand recently underwent a $175 million renovation, and offers beautifully appointed guest rooms of 450 sq. ft., with modern design and hi-tech features. The hotel is located at the busiest corner of the Las Vegas Strip and there will be loads of New Year’s Eve excitement right outside the front door. In addition to the newly decorated rooms, the MGM Grand Hotel features dining options for every taste, shopping, entertainment and of course an expansive casino for those who are feeling lucky!

Upon arrival to Las Vegas, transportation is available for the quick ride from the airport to the MGM Grand hotel and the event will officially kick off with a private VIP reception, followed by Zumanity, a seductive twist on reality. Zumanity, the Sensual Side of Cirque du Soleil, makes the provocative playful and the forbidden electrifying! Leave all inhibitions at the door and let loose as this adult-themed production takes you on a sexy thrill ride full of sensational acrobatics and naughty fun. Part burlesque and part cabaret, Zumanity is one Las Vegas show you'll never forget!

After the show, guests will party at the Kick Off Reception at LAX Nightclub, where the DJ will get the party started and rock it to the delight of the crowd. With unrivaled décor, a top-tier sound system and impeccable service, LAX is one of the most talked about clubs in the country. The two-story space is outfitted in rich red leathers and shimmering chandeliers creating a modern and luxurious feel, complete with amenities fit for a king. Sexy go-go boys will get the crowd going at every corner and super special Las Vegas characters will entertain guests in their very unique way.

Day Two will feature a Men’s Fashion Extravaganza with a peek at what’s new in apparel for Spring, accompanied by an exclusive wine reception. After the show guests can shop in the Fashion Show Mall with discounts that have been made available for Evolve guests only.

New Year’s Eve will kick off with another VIP party, before opening up to the main celebration at the Havana Nightclub. This event will welcome local gays as well as those visiting for the end of the year, and give Evolve guests the chance to make even more new acquaintances. Special entertainment has been planned for this party and midnight features a champagne toast to a global countdown video, as well as extravagant city fireworks that can be viewed from the patio of the club. 

The festivities will continue at Share Nightclub, the newest gay club in town. If that’s not enough, Day Three offers a slot tournament and a special private showing of Divas Las Vegas. This energetic show starring Las Vegas’ longest running headliner, Frank Marino, features an all-star cast of superstar female impersonators who not only recreate, but almost uncannily duplicate the likenesses of stars ranging from Britney Spears to Cher, Diana Ross to Beyoncé, and even Madonna and Tina Turner have been known to stop by. Recently added were Pop’s newest sensations Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Katy Perry as well as six of Sin City’s hottest male dancers, which help make this one of Las Vegas’ most spectacular production shows. Marino changes between every act, bringing an international whirlwind of couture to the stage with each spectacular entrance. After the show, KRAVE, the only gay club on the Las Vegas Strip, will welcome guests to party into the wee hours of the morning.
