Is Hakkasan Group up for sale?
That's the question on everybody's mind after a recent Bloomberg report suggested that Abu Dhabi-based Alliance International Investment is in talks to sell the global restaurant-and-nightclub operator.
This comes mere weeks after Los Angeles-based The H.wood Group separated from Hakkasan Group, buying back a significant equity stake and reclaiming global rights to its portfolio of restaurants and nightclubs.
The recent shake-up has drawn interest from the Spain-based hospitality company Pacha Group and investment firm Certares, though no final decisions have been made and the talks may not lead to a sale.
This would be a big change for Hakkasan Group, who manages some of the biggest nightclubs and beach clubs in Las Vegas, including Omnia, Jewel, 1 OAK, Wet Republic, Bare Pool and, of course, Hakkasan Nightclub.
This is not the first news we've heard about a possible sale. Earlier this year, reports indicated that Hakkasan Group was looking to merge with SBE in Los Angeles, though it was later confirmed that negotiations fell through.
Today brings devastating news from the music world. Swedish DJ and producer Tim Bergling, better known as Avicii, has died at the age of 28.
He was found dead in Muscat, Oman, on Friday, a mere two years after announcing his retirement from music.
"It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii," reads a statement from the artist's representatives. "The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given."
Although Avicii had told publications that he felt "happy" and "free" after retiring, he was plagued by a number of health problems leading up to his death. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tim suffered from an acute pancreatitis due to excessive drinking. He had his gallbladder and appendix removed in 2014.
"I have my private life back and focusing on myself for the first time," he said not long after retiring. "This was obviously the hardest decision of my life so far. But so far it has paid off tremendously in terms of well-being for me. I'm happier than I have been in a very, very long time. Stress-free more than I have been in a very long time. I can't say I'm never going to have a show again. I just don't think I'm going to go back to the touring life."
As a resident DJ at both XS Nightclub and Encore Beach Club, Avicii was a popular Las Vegas mainstay up until his retirement in 2016.
EDM superstars from around the world have taken to social media to share their heartbreak, memories and love for Avicii.
"Devastating news about Avicii," starts Calvin Harris. "A beautiful soul, passionate and extremely talented with so much more to do." "At a loss for words ... rest easy brother," posted Marshmello. Deorro added that he "can't believe we lost one of the greatest music influencers of our time." And Eric Prydz kept it simple: "I have no words. RIP Tim."
Avicii's music and memory will continue to influence DJs and music-lovers for years to come. Rest in peace, Tim Bergling.

Labor Day Weekend is about celebration, having fun and hitting he clubs. Sadly, for hip hop legend Lil Wayne, this weekend was a medical nightmare that sent Young Weezy to the hospital.
One day before he was scheduled to perform at the Drai's Beach Club Labor Day celebration, Lil Wayne suffered an epileptic seizure and found unconscious in his hotel room. According to reports, the 34 year old rapper later suffered a second seizure at the hospital and is now resting up from the horrific ordeal.
Understandably, Drai's Beach Club was quick to confirm that they would be rescheduling Lil Wayne's performance, but little else is known. "Our priority is the health and well-being of our artists," the club wrote on Facebook. "Everybody at Drai's wishes Lil Wayne a speedy recovery during this time."
This is not the first time Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., has been hospitalized for seizures. Last year, his private jet was forced to make an emergency landing during a cross-country flight after he suffered multiple seizures in the air. In 2013, he was admitted to an intensive care unit in Los Angeles after enduring what the rapper later described as life-threatening seizures.
The "Sucker for Pain" singer confessed in a 2013 interview with LA radio station Power 106 that this has been a reoccurring problem: “Like, this isn’t my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh seizure. I’ve had a bunch of seizures, y’all just never hear about them,” he said. “But this time it got real bad ’cause I had three of them in a row and on the third one, my heart rate went down to like 30 percent. Basically, I could've died, so that is why it was so serious. But the reason being for the seizures is just plain stress, no rest, overworking myself."
We're all hopeful that Lil Wayne gets the rest he needs and make a full recovery. The rapper is currently scheduled to host Drai's Nightclub over Halloween weekend, which still appears to be on the official calendar. We'll update the October 29 event if any changes are made.
In a week where everybody was obsessed over the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight, leave it to 50 Cent and Meek Mill to bury the hatchet and put their long-running beef behind them.
The most heart-warming story to come out of fight week was that of the Philly spitfire and G-Unit general taking the stage together at Drai's Nightclub on Friday, August 25. They were joined by Chance the Rapper, Trey Songz, Jeezy and NBA star James Harden.
As rap fans may already know, Meek Mill and 50 Cent started feuding back in 2015, after 50 favored Drake in their infamous diss war. The two went back and forth on social media, using Instagram as a weapon.
The good news is that Meek and 50 have recently squashed that feud, leading to an incredible performance of the anthemic song "Dreams and Nightmares."
Does this mean we can expect a G-Unit and MMMG collaboration in the near future? Neither musician is ready to commit to that, but this week's performance is a step in the right direction.

This deal sees McGregor orchestrating parties through 2019, starting with his debut right after the fight on August 26.

It was big news when sbe Entertainment announced that they were in talks to merge with restaurant and club operator Hakkasan Group. But that was March and both parties have been tight-lipped about the detail in the past five months. That is, until now.
CEO Sam Nazarian recently told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that "sbe remains in negotiations to complete a financial transaction in which sbe's and Hakkasan's formidable hospitality assets are combined into one company. We are looking forward to completing the transaction to accelerate our already robust expansion."
sbe Entertainment is best known for their chain of hotels, as well as popular nightlife venues like Hyde, Doheny Room, Nightingale, Skybar, Bar Nue, Fourteen, XIV Sessions, Double Barrell House, The Library and Create Nightclub.
Together, sbe and Hakkasan have an equity value of more than $1 billion, the Wall Street Journal reported in March.
Some insiders worry that this may be history repeating itself. sbe Entertainment spent months negotiating a takeover of Morgans Hotel Group in 2015 before talks collapsed. The L.A.-based hospitality company ended up buying the boutique hotel brand one year later.
Experts warn that mergers and acquisitions can often take much longer than anticipated. Negotiations could take anywhere from a few months to more than a year. We may not hear anything for quite a while.
For their part, Hakkasan Group isn't sitting around to see what happened. They recently announced a roadmap that included opening 30 new clubs and restaurants by 2020.
The year's biggest celebration is almost here and MyRSVP wants you to be ready. Experience your favorite DJs and entertainers at all of the hottest clubs over Labor Day Weekend, including Martin Garrix, David Guetta, Kevin Hart, Kygo, Tyga, T-Pain, The Chainsmokers, Calvin Harris and many more. In fact, there are so many must-see events that we wanted to bring all the information together for the official Labor Day Weekend Survival Guide.
It all kicks off on the first day of September, when we see Marshmello host Intrigue, Martin Garrix at Omnia, Boombox Cartel heating up Drai's Beach Club, Tiesto spending the day at Wet Republic and Kevin Hart bringing the laughs to Marquee Nightclub.
The party continues into Saturday, September 2, when Omnia welcomes Armin Van Buuren, Tiesto takes over Hakkasan, Kevin Hart jokes around at Tao Beach, Whiz Khalifa rocks Drai's Nightclub and Kaskade does his thing at Jewel.
Friday and Saturday were only a warm-up for Sunday, September 3, when we'll see Steve Aoki return to Omnia, Calvin Harris host Hakkasan, David Guetta take control of Encore Beach Club, Metro Boomin' blow up Light, Rick Ross rock Daylight and even taste the delicious sounds of Marshmello at XS Nightclub.

If you thought the Hakkasan Group was showing signs of slowing down, think again.
At the recently Nightclub and Bar Show held in the Las Vegas Convention Center, CEO Neil Moffitt outlined a path that included opening thirty new venues over the next three years. This would include new restaurants and nightclubs located around the world, expanding their reach and turning them into the global nightlife leader.
Neil has reason to be optimistic. Since being hired in 2013, the enthusiastic CEO has taken the company from relative obscurity to earning $500 million a year. Hakkasan Group is currently in control of about sixty venues, including at least a dozen in Las Vegas. With the overwhelming success of their flagship Hakkasan Nightclub, along with Wet Republic and Omnia Nightclub, the group sees an opportunity to not only introduce their brand of party to new locations, but also increase their annual revenue by 50%.
The CEO may be on to something, as Hakkasan managed to beat its revenue forecast by $7 million by putting more emphasis on social media and focusing less on traditional advertising. In fact, Neil bragged that they were able to save $9 million by cutting back on billboards and magazines.
Neil also talked about competing with their bitter rival -- Wynn Nightlife. "When we fight the guy down the street, all we do is chip away at our margin," he explained. While he may have been half-joking, there's some truth in his statement. Wynn and Hakkasan have been going back and forth battling over the world's top DJs.
But I wouldn't feel too bad for the Hakkasan CEO, as this year's residency lineup includes Calvin Harris, Tiesto, Porter Robinson, Hardwell, Kaskade, Steve Aoki and even Puff Daddy.
April is going to be a big month at Hakkasan, with Tiesto on the 1st and 20th, Zedd hosting the anniversary weekend on the 7th, Above & Beyond on the 9th, Lil Jon on the 15th and 29th, and Kaskade on the 22nd.

Hot on the heels of releasing the hit single "It Ain't Me" with Selena Gomez, DJ Kygo has announced his Wynn residency in a dramatic new video.
Featuring the Norwegian DJ playing "Piano Jam 2," this brand new video confirms the rumors that he would be bringing his talents to XS Nightclub and Encore Beach Club exclusively starting on April 30. He joins the ranks of Skrillex and The Chainsmokers as the top tier talent you will only find at Wynn.
"Kygo will be the dominant force on the Strip during the prime pool party months," explains Wynn Nightlife Executive Vice President and Managing Partner Alex Cordova. "His sound perfectly complements our pool party vibe."
Kygo has announced ten upcoming events, including seven at XS and three at Encore Beach Club. It all kicks off at XS on April 30, followed by performances on May 8, May 28, June 9, June 16, June 25 and June 30. His dates at Encore Beach Club include May 20, May 26 and June 10.

Steve Aoki, Zedd and Tiesto have all been tapped to help celebrate the biggest event in April -- Hakkasan's four year anniversary.
First launched in April 2013, the Hakkasan Group's flagship nightclub has quickly become the biggest nightlife destination in Las Vegas. They have an impressive roster of some of the biggest names in electronic dance music and a lock on the highly competitive party scene.

The party kicks off on April 6th, when Steve Aoki takes the stage. This is followed up by Zedd on April 7, Tiesto on April 8 and Above & Beyond finishing things off on April 8. It's a killer lineup that will feature all kinds of unexpected surprises and cameos.
Unfortunately, Calvin Harris will not be part of the festivities. The Grammy-award winning musician was Hakkasan's very first resident DJ and a staple of the nightclub. But don't worry, partiers looking for their Calvin fix will be able to check him out on May 4 and over Memorial Day Weekend.
Hakkasan has already outlined their summer schedule, which includes nearly 100 announced events between now and August (with more being added every day).

Machine Gun Kelly created a scene when he kicked off his Las Vegas residency at Drai's Nightclub on January 21.
Coming hot on the heels of The Chainsmokers signing with Wynn Nightlife, the chart-topping rapper will be bringing his off-the-wall antics exclusively to Drai's Nightclub. He was backed by his full band -- the "Bad Things" -- when he took the stage to thunderous applause.

After months of teasing and hype, Marshmello has finally unveiled the long-awaited remix of DJ Snake's hit collaboration "Let Me Love You" with Justin Bieber.
Released on Soundcloud this week, this high-energy mix ranks as one of Marshmello's greatest hits. It opens with a booming sub bass and a meandering trap beat before letting loose with Justin Bieber's pristine vocal hooks. It has an irresistible beat that rivals the original in terms of quality and catchiness, and is guaranteed to be in heavy rotation at every party.
This Marshmello remix comes just a few weeks after Dutch DJ Tiesto unleashed his own version of the DJ Snake song. If that wasn't enough, we're still awaiting "Let Me Love You" remixes from both Zedd and Don Diablo.
Beyond releasing this catchy new remix, Marshmello will have his hands full playing eight upcoming Las Vegas gigs between December and January. These include Intrigue on December 8, December 29 and January 19, Surrender on December 14 and January 4, and XS on January 1, January 15 and January 27. On the other hand, DJ Snake will be hosting Surrender's New Year's Eve party.
With only a few weeks left until the biggest celebration of 2016, your favorite clubs are busy finalizing the entertainment for New Year's Weekend. The year-end celebration will include some of the top musicians, including Drake, The Weeknd, Calvin Harris, Ludacris, Steve Aoki, Kendrick Lamar and more.
It all begins on December 30, when Kaskade will host the celebrations at Omnia, Tiesto and DJ Shift will team up at Hakkasan, Alesso will rock XS, Metro Boomin' takes over Light and DJ Que returns to The Bank.
Saturday brings the main event, when Calvin Harris will be counting down the seconds until 2017 at Omnia, Drake will host Hakkasan, Steve Aoki will shine at Jewel, Major Lazer will spin at XS, Ludacris will turn on Light, Kendrick Lamar will slay Drai's Nightclub and The Weeknd will bring his soulful style to Marquee.

The stars descended on Las Vegas over Thanksgiving weekend, and we were lucky enough to be part of the action.
TAO restaurant welcomed Chloe Grace Moretz, star of Neighbors 2 and Kick-Ass. The 19 year old actress was joined by a group of friends, who reportedly dined on a selection of TAO's favorites.
TAO was also the stop for Orange is the New Black star Jackie Cruz, who enjoyed the laidback atmosphere (and spicy tuna tartar on crispy rice) with friends.
San Diego Chargers running back Melvin Gordon did more than just dine at the famous Asian eatery, he celebrated the birthday of friend Shaquil Barrett at TAO Nightclub in The Venetian. The two were joined by Denver Broncos players Sylvester Williams and Derek Wolfe, and enjoyed a VIP table as Justin Credible manned the decks.
TAO has an exciting December lineup that includes Politik on the 3rd, Enferno on the 9th, Jerzy on the 15th, Dainjazone on the 16th, DJ C LA on the 22nd, DJ Wellman on Christmas Eve and French Montana on New Year's Eve.
BRKLYN is no stranger to the Las Vegas party scene. Having been a mainstay at both Tao, Jewel and Liquid Pool Lounge, this LA-based DJ duo has managed to capture a strong following on the Strip. And now they're about to graduate to the major leagues, thanks to a comfy new gig at Hakkasan Nightclub.
Starting on Thanksgiving day, November 24, BRKLYN will be bringing their unique style to one of the world's most celebrated nightclubs. This residency will also include a much-hyped concert on December 17, as well as several to-be-determined dates in 2017.
BRKLYN is made up of Cameron Alexander and Cody Nadeau, two musicians with an ear for infectious beats and anthemic synth lines. The duo is best known for their hit song "Can't Get Enough," featuring Mariah McManus, as well as "Steal Your Heart" with Lenachka.
Beyond BRKLYN, Hakkasan has a busy lineup for December, including DJ Shift's birthday party on the 1st, DVBBS on the 3rd, Lil Jon on the 10th, Mark Eteson on the 11th, Steve Aoki on the 29th, Tiesto on the 30th and Drake hosting New Year's Eve.
Louis Tomlinson has a lot of time on his hands. With One Direction currently on hiatus, what is the former teen heartthrob to do? The answer should be obvious: Spend the night partying at one of the best nightclubs in the world.
Observant fans spotted the 24 year old musician having an incredible time at Hakkasan Nightclub on November 19. He, along with eight friends, showed up around 12:30 am and helped celebrate Steve Aoki's 39th birthday. The group was escorted to a VIP table located inside the DJ booth, where they downed some very expensive alcohol.
What you may not realize is that Louis Tomlinson is about a month out from celebrating his own birthday, though it's unclear if Steve Aoki will return the favor and show up for that. Either way, the group of nine sucked in the club's love and energy and had a night they'll never forget.

The weather may be cooling down, but the pool party season is just starting to heat up.
While many dayclubs have gone into hibernation for the rest of the year, the Marquee Dayclub Dome is back to keep the party going all throughout the winter months. It all kicks off on November 5, when Tritonal brings their unique sound to Marquee.
Upcoming events include M!ke Attack on both November 12 and November 26, Cedric Gervais on November 19, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano on December 3, Andrew Rayel on December 10 and Sander van Doorn on December 17.
Future dates will be added in the coming days.

When Kim Kardashian was held up at gunpoint earlier this month, the burglars stole a lot more than jewelry. While the media reported the loss of millions of dollars' worth of fine gems, rings and necklaces, few mentioned the most valuable thing the robbers took -- the reality TV star's sense of safety and security.
Now that a few weeks have passed, we're finally starting to see the impact of that terrible night in Paris. In a completely understandable move, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has decided to cancel her scheduled birthday party at Hakkasan on October 28. She will instead stay home and celebrate her 36th birthday with close friends and family, opting for a much more low-key affair.
For their part, Hakkasan has taken the cancelation in stride and October 28 will now feature a return appearance by The Chainsmokers, whose song Closer featuring Halsey is currently sitting atop the Billboard Hot 100. That weekend will also feature Tiesto w/ Dzeko and Torres on October 29 and Calvin Harris w/ Generik on October 30.
While disappointing, this cancelation is certainly understandable. Here's hoping that Kim will return to Las Vegas for her 37th birthday in 2017.
Kevin Durant and Draymond Green are not the only basketball stars to hit Las Vegas this week.
Mere days after the two Golden State Warriors were spotted at Hakkasan Nightclub, Sacramento Kings point guard Ty Lawson followed suit with a crazy night of his own at Drai's Nightclub. In fact, the party got so wild that the NBA star accidentally missed a flight to Kentucky for an exhibition game.
TMZ is reporting that Ty Lawson partied with teammates Ben McLemore and Willie Cauley-Stein, along with boxer Adrien Broner. The four enjoyed the music of DJ Esco, while taking in the sights and sounds only Drai's Nightclub can provide.
If you're looking to be part of the excitement, Drai's Nightclub has some of the biggest stars lined up for the end of October. You won't want to miss 112 on October 23, Fetty Wap on October 28, Future on October 29, 50 Cent on October 30 and T.I. hosting Halloween night on the 31st. And looking even further into the future, Nelly will be playing the club on both November 4 and November 5.
It's not every day the Golden State Warriors take on the Los Angeles Lakers in Las Vegas. And that's precisely why some of the players of the team decided to take full advantage of Sin City.
On Sunday, October 16, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green were seen partying the night away at Vegas hotspot Hakkasan. The two were enjoying rapper Travis Scott, who is also a mainstay at Drai's Nightclub and Marquee. The three stars got in what was described as a small security-enforced huddle and documented the whole thing on Twitter.
The crowd loved it, yelling along as the basketball legends chanted "I can't get no rest" in the middle of Hakkasan Nightclub.
This is just a warm-up for an explosive October at the world-famous club. Hakkasan will be welcoming The Chainsmokers, Tiesto and Calvin Harris over Halloween weekend.
If you've seen Cash Cash at Marquee Nightclub, then you already know they put on an explosive show. Apparently things got too hot for just one city, because the DJ trio just announced an expansive headlining tour that will take them all across North America.
Coming hot on the heels of their newest album -- Blood, Sweet & 3 Years -- Cash Cash will be hitting clubs in pretty much all of the major cities, including Chicago, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Seattle, Phoenix and more. The tour will kick off on October 1 at Marquee Nightclub and end with a New Year's Eve gig in San Francisco.
Even though they'll be bouncing around the country, Cash Cash will still find a few excuses to return to the city that made them famous. You can see the New Jersey natives at Marquee Dayclub on October 8 and October 15, as well as Marquee Nightclub appearances on October 10, November 7, November 19, December 9 and December 23.
If that's not enough, Cash Cash is also set to host Vegas Horror Story Freaqfest at Marquee Nightclub on October 28. There are currently nine dates in the MyRSVP Event Calendar, so you'll have plenty of chances to see why everybody loves Cash Cash.
Shaun O'Neal only had one goal when he entered Fox's MasterChef cooking competition: Be the last man standing. Now that he's accomplished that goal and returned to Las Vegas, he has a brand new goal: Have the best night ever at Surrender Nightclub.
The 33-year-old Vegas native was recently spotted at Encore's popular nightclub celebrating his win. A deejay by night, Shaun showed off his MasterChef trophy to an adoring crowd. Among those most excited was Dillon Francis, who just so happens to be good friends with Shaun O'Neal.
While we don't know where the MasterChef champ will go from here, his DJ pal Dillon Francis has a busy schedule. He'll be returning to Surrender Nightclub on both September 24 and October 12. And then on Halloween weekend, he'll host Wynnderland Halloween on October 29. We recommend you book a reservation now.
Labor Day Weekend is behind us and summer is starting to wind down. But don't fret, because pool party season is still in full swing. We still have the rest of September and most of October to show off your favorite swimsuit and get wet.
Wet Republic has most of their heavy-hitters still on deck, including Martin Garrix on September 24, The Chainsmokers on September 25, Steve Aoki on October 1, Chuckie on October 8, Fergie DJ on October 15 and Mark Eteson one last time on October 22.
Marquee Dayclub will feature most of their regulars, including Lost Frequencies on September 23, Tritonal on September 24, Lema on September 30, Politik on October 1 and Cash Cash on both October 8 and October 15.
Not to be outdone, Liquid Pool will feature Mikey Francis on September 23, Kid Conrad on September 24 and the very sexy sounds of DJ Lezlee on September 29. And don't forget to Drink Liquid Dry at their getting-ready-to-close party.
Don't worry, I haven't forgotten about Bare Pool. The official dayclub of The Mirage will welcome Greg Lopez on September 22, DJ Que on September 23, DJ Sincere on September 24, Zsuzanna on September 25 and DJ D-Miles on September 26.
Tao Beach has loaded their schedule up with performances by Javier Alba on September 23, October 1, October 7 and October 16. Other days include Angie Vee on October 8, Mike K on October 9 and Wellman on October 15.
You will also be able to experience Wellman on September 23 over at Foxtail Pool Club. This will be followed by DJ Hollywood on September 24, DJ Ikon on September 25 and September 30, and DJ Hollywood on both October 1 and October 2.
Finally, Daylight has events scheduled through the end of the month. It's a diverse schedule that features DJ Neva on September 22 and September 29, DJ Prostyle on September 23, Morgan Page on September 24, Kid Funk on September 25 and the one and only Eric Dlux on September 30.

Mozart, Beethoven, and ... Skrillex?
If you've ever gotten into an argument about whether electronic music is "high culture" or not, prepare to have a definitive answer. A German court ruled this week that the high-profile parties at the infamous Berghain club should be classified in much the same way as classical music.
Believe it or not, this is not a trivial issue. The ruling will allow the Berlin nightclub to stay in a much lower tax bracket, allowing them to pay 7% culture tax instead of the typical 19% entertainment tax.
Those opposed to this ruling argued that a place where individuals come to dance, have fun and take drugs is "ruled by entertainment, not by culture." However, the club's management successfully argued that the same could be said for classical music. The court sided with Berghain.
This is not only a win for the nightlife culture, but also people who love electronic music. Rock 'n roll may never die, but techno is "high culture."
In a city overflowing with superstar DJs, sometimes it's hard to stand out. Thankfully, Andrew Rayel doesn't seem to be having that problem. With a brand new music video under his belt, the 24-year-old DJ is proving that he really is the heart and soul of Moldova.
Appropriately named "The Heart of Moldova," the brand new single shows off Andrew Rayel's ability to mix incredible beats with classical music composition. The result is a hypnotic journey that you won't want to miss, and the video isn't half bad, either.

Could it be that one of Las Vegas' most beloved DJs is thinking about calling it quits?
Surprising almost everybody, Scott Disick recently hinted at a possible retirement in an interview with People Magazine. Despite being a staple at 1 OAK Nightclub, the 33-year-old reality star complained that his life is starting to feel like the movie Groundhog's Day and there may be a point in the near future where he walks away.
"I feels like [1 OAK] is a second home, but I'm thinking about retiring from the whole appearance. I've just been doing it for so long. They just feels like it's so repetitive. I love them and I'm going to try to have a good night, as I love it here, but part of me feels like I just can't keep doing these for the rest of my life either."
The popular DJ concluded that "I don't know if I can give the people what they want anymore" and added that he's "just trying to make more money during the day and not at night."
But there's no need to panic just yet, because Scott Disick won't be retiring in the next two months. He will be hosting Scott Disick's American Psycho Costume Contest at 1 OAK Nightclub over Halloween weekend.
Scott would not be the first DJs to call it quits in 2016. Earlier this year we saw Avicii announce a farewell tour that resulted in his nightclub retirement. Could we see this become a trend?
For now, enjoy the DJs while they are here, because you never know when they are going to retire.
