Wynn Field Club will host guests at stadium’s north end zone
By Jason R. Latham
Just when you think you’ve worn down the “Only in Vegas” cliché, along comes Wynn Field Club, a nightlife experience coming to Allegiant Stadium.
Yes, the home of the Las Vegas Raiders, a National Football League franchise, will have a nightclub in the stadium. In the north end zone, at field level, in fact.
At last, the Raiders finally feel like a Las Vegas team.
Conceived by Wynn Nightlife, which operates XS nightclub and Encore Beach Club at Wynn Las Vegas, the 11,000 square foot club will feature field-facing booths, premium bottle service, 42 television screens, a 45,000-watt sound system to rival the crowd, and two DJ booths. Wynn Nightlife will pull from its residency roster – David Guetta, Diplo, The Chainsmokers, and Kygo, among others – to man the decks, though performance schedules have yet to be announced.
Las Vegas has already introduced the “nightclub in a stadium” concept with Hyde Lounge at T-Mobile Arena, home of the National Hockey League’s Vegas Golden Knights. The rebranding of Allegiant Stadium’s north end zone will likely set a new entertainment standard that other teams will try, and likely fail, to emulate.
Why? Because only Vegas can do Vegas. The Raiders may have relocated the south end zone’s “Black Hole” to the desert, but they can’t deny that they’re a premier product of the “Entertainment Capital of the World.” The NFL, which did everything short of hanging garlic to keep Las Vegas away, now embraces the city like no other.
Within a few years, we’ll see the NFL draft and Super Bowl hosted here. It was only a matter of time before we started to rub off on this new team. Despite their on-field play, the Raiders are the most exciting thing in the NFL.
To borrow another worn cliché, that’s what you get for waking up in Vegas.
