The grand opening celebration begins at 8 p.m. Tickets for this special, one-time-only event start at $50 and are on sale now at www.lexnightclub.com.

Billing itself as the place “where elegance becomes unruly,” LEX Nightclub will feature an adult indoor pool that has a dance floor that extends over it and creates the illusion of dancing on water, along with 33 VIP tables, three full bars and an incredible, multi-million dollar lighting and sound system. With a capacity of 1,100 and more than 70 employees, LEX will be open every Thursday through Sunday, beginning Friday, July 11, from 8 p.m. until 4 a.m. The regular cover charge will be $30 and half off for locals on a nightly basis.

“Our commitment is to provide a unique and complete experience that is unrivaled by anything in the region and appeals both to locals and visitors to our area,” said Uonites. “LEX Nightclub, combined with our incredible dining and entertainment venues and top-notch amenities, truly establishes GSR as one of the country’s premier resort destinations.”
