Former Disney star Ashley Tisdale took Sin City by storm as she celebrated her 26th birthday with an all-girls trip to Las Vegas where she partied at PURE Nightclub (Friday, July 15) and Venus Pool Club (Saturday, July 16). The young starlet brought along her closest friends including sister Jennifer Tisdale, Hellcats co-star Heather Hemmens, and actresses Casey Weiant, Samantha Droke, Kimberly Hidalgo and Shelley Buckner. Her longtime bestie Vanessa Hudgens was not present at the festivities.
Tisdale and friends kicked off the weekend Friday night with a private dinner at Social House at Crystals inside CityCenter, known for its frequent A-list visitors. The all-girl group dined on Rock Shrimp Tempura, Mini Kobe Burgers and a delicious assortment of sushi and sashimi,while sipping on signature cocktails.
Following dinner, Tisdale arrived at PURE Nightclub in style wearing a sexy lace dress paired with Christian Louboutin booties. While on the red carpet, the Hollywood beauty posed for pictures as she showed off her gorgeous new back-to-blonde locks. Also on the carpet, she addressed questions regarding the photos of her and close friend Zac Efron, saying “He’s like my brother, and we’ve always had the same relationship.” She continued, “We’ve always been this way and he’s one of my best friends and family, so is Vanessa.”
When told she would make a good couple with Efron, she replied with, “Oh well, that’s nice but I’m best friends with Vanessa, so that’s a little weird and plus he’s like my brother.”
She was then escorted inside alongwith her entourage to their VIP table located on the club’s iconic main stage. As soon as they arrived at their table, the girls set their purses down andstarted dancing and celebrating her big night. Later in the evening, Tisdale was presented with an adorable pink birthday cake while the packed club cheered her on. Smiling from ear-to-ear, the actress blew out her candles as friends wished her a “Happy Birthday.” After the cake presentation, Tisdale lead a champagne toast dedicated to her girls and thanked them for coming out for the weekend. She spent the rest of the evening dancing and partying into the early hours of the morning.
On Saturday (July 16), the girls kept the celebration going by opting for a more low key fête as they spent the day relaxing and lounging poolside at Venus Pool Club. Taking advantage of the hot summer day, Tisdale and her girls set up shop in one of the venue’s luxe cabanas where they immediately got into their teeny bikinis and began soaking up some rays. As the temperatures rose, the girls kept cool by sipping on frozen libations and taking advantage of the air-conditioned cabana.
Instead of indulging in another birthday cake, the petite hottie decided to munch on afresh fruit plate of watermelon and pineapple while lounging in her chair. Fighting the desert heat the celebutant tested out the Olympic-sized pool and joined sun-kissed partygoers as she dipped her toes in the cool water. Tisdale and her girlfriends made sure to perfect their tans as they stayed there until the late afternoon.
