Thursday Holly Madison, star of Peepshow and the hit reality series Holly’s World, held an early birthday celebration at TAO Nightclub and LAVO Nightclub. The stage and screen star turns 31 on December 23 and decided to celebrate a few weeks in advance.
She started the party with an early dinner in the private dining room at LAVO. Friends including Bridget Marquardt, Laura Croft, Angel Porrino, Josh Strickland and new beau Jack Barakat toasted the birthday girl with Hpnotiq Bubbles and Blue cocktails and then dined on signature dishes from the kitchen. Of course Holly’s favorite Kobe Meatball was on the menu. A candle atop LAVO’s Oreo Zeppole dessert served as a precursor for more sweet moments later in the night.
After dinner Holly raced over to perform in Peepshow before heading back to continue the party at TAO. More friends, including Playmate Jayde Nicole joined for the late night celebration. The group made their way to a sky box overlooking the club, and upon Holly’s arrival event partner Hpnotiq sent the guest of honor a magnum bottle of the liqueur via TAO’s bottle fairy, who flew over the dance floor.
Holly got on the mic, shouting out to the crowd, “What’s up Las Vegas?” She then thanked TAO, Hpnotiq and all of the club goers for the celebration.
Holly was surprised with a three tiered Rapunzel cake from Gimme Some Sugar, which arrived to the sky box accompanied by the Holly’s World TV series theme song. The surprises continued as Hpnotiq presented a $1000 check in her name for the Lied Animal Shelter, one of Holly’s favorite causes. A birthday isn’t complete without presents and TAO continued the gift giving, presenting Holly with a diamond studded heart shaped necklace from Simon G jewelers. The group danced the night away and Holly and Jack were spotted holding hands and stealing the occasional kiss. They partied at TAO until after 2 am when they headed up to their suite in The Venetian for some late night snacking from room service.
NASCAR driver Kyle Busch was spotted in the next sky box over with friends.
