After planning your wedding for years, you want to let loose, go wild, and blow off some steam before that final big day when you walk down the aisle. Bachelors and bachelorettes, you know where you want to go. Las Vegas is THE ultimate adults’ playground.
“We are the city of entertainment!” exclaims Kaori Nagao, owner of AngeLiKa Boutique Concierge, a professional concierge service that has been planning Vegas getaways for almost a decade. “We have the best nightclubs in the world.”
But getting into the hottest clubs, having the most amazing experiences, and being a VIP in a world of VIPs can be a difficult, and that’s where Nagao comes in. Her company works with private parties and large corporations—like JP Morgan Chase, Disney, and Facebook—to make incredible escapes for every client.
The most popular request to AngeLiKa is for show tickets, especially for O, the Cirque du Soleil show at Bellagio; however, for bachelor and corporate groups, Nagao arranges special events.
“Exotic cars racing, which is to drive a dream car, is one of the most popular activities during the day,” says Nagao. “Great for bachelor and guy groups, corporate groups. They get to drive the Lamborghinis, the Porsches, the Nissan GTRs. These are like men’s dream cars, and it’s on the Las Vegas motor speed track.”
But most bachelor and bachelorette parties choose AngeLiKa for their exceptional nighttime access.
“We work very closely with TAO Group, which has Marquee nightclub at the new Cosmopolitan, one of the hottest nightclubs in town,” chats Nagao. “We also have Tao nightclub at the Venetian, which is almost 10 years in Vegas and is still very strong.”
One of the most exciting events that Nagao and AngeLiKa offer is the Lavo Champagne Party Brunch, which kicked off in November for the winter months.
“So basically we have pool parties during the summertime, and our summer starts in April,” explains Nagao. “From April to October, we have the pool parties during the day, cabana reservations; daybed reservations. It’s like a nightclub during the daytime. That is how I explain it to the clients.”
But during the winter months when the pools close, Nagao offers the Champagne Party Brunch at Lavo, which is from 2 P.M. to 6 P.M. with people popping champagne, having brunch, girls dancing on tables with confetti, and neon glow sticks.
Nagao laughs. “It’s day and night partying here.”
AngeLiKa’s coordinated the 2010 Global Ball for Flight Centre with more than 2,800 participants, which included the world’s largest toga party in the world, and she’s currently working on next year’s ball, which will have 3,600 guests.
AngeLiKa’s best feature is its all-inclusive service.
“We basically do all reservations, not just specifically nightlife,” Nagao says. “There are companies out there that just do specifically nightclubs and pool parties. We not only do that, but we also have access to shows. We have access to transfers. We have access to all the fun tours. We basically have access to all reservations that make the best of Vegas.”
Is there a request Nagao and AngeLiKa can’t fulfill?
“I think that’s the beauty of Vegas. Anything goes, so people get creative with their requests. And since we’ve been here for 10 years, we’ve heard it all before.”
