Tryst Nightclub at Wynn Closing

An article in Vegas Seven a few days ago profiled the upcoming post-Halloween closure of Tryst Nightclub at Wynn. Nightclubs come and go constantly but Tryst was a mainstay in Las Vegas nightlife for 10 years, opening in 2005.

The closing of Tryst comes at the same time that original Wynn restaurants Bartolotta and Botero will be closed and re-branded. It's not too surprising - trendy restaurants, much like nightclubs have a limited shelf life.

Tryst will likely close for a period of up to six months before re-opening under a different name. That same tact was successfully used by Caesars Palace when they closed Pure and later reopened as Omnia.

The new club however will be without the services of Jessie Waits. The former managing partner of Tryst and XS has departed Wynn to work for the new Alon resort. It will be somewhat interesting to see if that has any impact on the success of the new nightclub.
