Blush Boutique Nightclub ReviewA blush - you know that tingling, warm, red flush of the cheeks - and Sin City go hand in hand. Being reminded of your dance moves last night at the club? Blush. Working up the nerve to talk to the cutie at the bar? Blush. Buying her (or him) a drink? Blush.
But Las Vegas ' more welcomed definition of blush is a lot easier to get on board with - a nightclub, named - of course - Blush. When it busted onto the scene in August, 2007, Blush was (and, in fact, still is) a one-of-a-kind animal in Sin City 's nightlife arena.
The club is what those in the industry (and those reading the signs) refer to as a "boutique nightclub," which means capacity tops out at just over a few hundred people.
In a city full of affectionately-termed "mega clubs," this concept is brand new
( New York , Los Angeles and Miami having been enjoying it for a while), but a smaller space doesn't mean a smaller share of good times. "We're not trying to hold the status and volume that the mega clubs do," said Trina Santiago, the club's marketing coordinator. "But we create the same kind of atmosphere, with the same kind of music, people and events, in an intimate, high-end setting."
Blush prides itself on being very service-oriented and some simple logic goes a long way in proving it right. If there aren't 1,200 people all swarming the bar for the same bartender or 30 tables all trying to wrangle down their host to order another bottle, if there are maybe only 400 people, things are easier.
