1.) Hakkasan at MGM Grand
Since its debut in April, this megaclub in MGM Grand has been THE place to party. Hakkasan is a five-story nightlife and culinary complex that spans 80,000 square feet. Amid lavish interiors that merge Eastern and Western stylistic elements, a variety of experiences can be had. The main club, which is situated on the fourth floor and stretches upward to include the mezzanine on the fifth floor, attracts the most attention on weekends. It boasts a huge dance floor, a suspended performance area, floor-to-ceiling LED screens and oversized VIP booths. Plus, Hakkasan’s roster of DJs reads like a “Who’s Who” in the world of EDM. Steve Aoki, Danny Avila, Dada Life, deadmau5, Hardwell, Calvin Harris, R3hab, Tiësto and Tommy Trash all make regular appearances. If you’re in more of low-key mood, the elegant 10,000-square-foot Ling Ling Club is situated on the third floor of Hakkasan.

Expedia Inc. (EXPE) agreed to buy a majority stake in travel metasearch engine trivago for about EUR 477 million, expanding the Internet travel agent’s exposure in Europe.

The deal also increases consolidation in Expedia’s market following Inc.’s (PCLN) $1.8 billion purchase agreement for travel metasearch company Kayak Software Corp. (KYAK) last month.

Expedia will acquire 61.6% of trivago for about EUR477 million, or roughly $632 million–including EUR434 million in cash and EUR43 million in Expedia stock.

Founded seven years ago, trivago grew into one of the largest travel sites in Europe and now conducts more than 100 million hotel searches annually, Expedia said. The company is expected to deliver about EUR100 million in revenue for 2012.
