LAS VEGAS – Inspired by Mykonos, Élia Beach Club is scheduled to open at Virgin Hotels in Las Vegas on June 10, Eater Las Vegas reported on April 21.

“The pool scene takes its inspiration from Mykonos, Greece, with wood-framed cabanas draped in fabric, jute woven poufs, and stonework accents,” Eater reported, adding that “the venue plans to showcase tropical house, world house, and deep house music,” and “a stage features a straw thatched roof and overlooks the Mediterranean-vibe pool.”

Among the features at Virgin Hotels “is an outdoor esplanade where diners can enter restaurants from their patios that look onto the pool scene,” Eater reported, noting that “Casa Calavera, the Mexican restaurant from Hakkasan Group, already opened with its sandy patio, while Todd English’s Olives, the sports bar Money, Baby!, and Kassi Beach House open soon.”

“Nightlife veterans Mio Danilovic, Jason ‘JROC’ Craig, and Michael Fuller plan to operate Élia Beach Club (pronounced ee-LYE-uh),” Eater reported, adding that “Danilovic, the creator and managing partner of the venue, recently opened Joia Beach in Miami.”

Élia Beach Club hours will be Thursday-Sunday, 11 AM-1 AM.
