What happens in Vegas, doesn’t always stay in Vegas.
The stars went out to Sin City to celebrate Super Bowl LVIII and Page Six snagged an invite to the hottest parties.
Leading up to the National Football League’s championship game on Sunday, the most famous nightclubs welcomed celebrity guests with special musical performances and extravagant events that boasted lots of booze, food and fun.
On Thursday, the Playmakers Party presented by FHM and Babes in Toyland brought out troves of bombshells that would rival any of Hugh Hefner’s parties in the Playboy mansion’s heyday.
Many of the women took the opportunity to strike a sexy pose for photographers on the red carpet before mingling at the pool adjacent fête.
As guests drank booze and chatted, popular music played over the speakers. Celebrity sightings included NFL alum Adrian Peterson and Orlando Brown Jr. of the Cincinnati Bengals, who gave Page Six his thoughts on the Super Bowl’s pricey suites. Former WWE star Mojo Rawley was also present, and took a moment on the carpet to playfully slam Rob Gronkowski as “lame” and “washed up.”
Friday night’s FanDuel’s invite-only soirée was just one escalator up from the One Party inside Fontainebleau Las Vegas.
Calvin Harris and Kid Cudi both hit the stage to sing their biggest hits in front of several former and current NFL stars like Joe Burrow, Rob Gronkowski, Victor Cruz and DeSean Jackson.
Across town, country music star Zach Bryan took to the stage at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan in front of a sold-out crowd on Friday night.
At one point in the night, Bryan surprised the crowd by bringing out comedian Shane Gillis to sing part of his hit “Revival.”
Bryan’s girlfriend, Briana Chickenfry, was also there to support the country crooner alongside her friends and family.
The concert marked the beginning of the Grammy winner’s new partnership with Bud Light.
Shaquille O’Neal also brought the fun to Sin City with a fête that had dancers on stilts, wearing a giant ballon over their heads, amusement park-like games and so much more.
The former NBA star kicked off his annual Super Bowl bash, Shaq’s Fun House, by walking the red carpet at XS nightclub in the Wynn Las Vegas hotel, where he spoke with Page Six about the sound advice he recently gave Jason Kelce and his newfound appreciation for Taylor Swift.
O’Neal then took the stage under his DJ Diesel monicker before Diplo and Lil Wayne also pumped up the crowd with their performances. Partygoers also got to spot several celebrities hanging out in the VIP section, including former UFC star Chuck Liddell, rapper E-40, “Office” alum Brian Baumgartner, Guy Fieri, Dr. Oz and Chiefs heiress Gracie Hunt, who spoke to Page Six about the pricey purse she gifted Taylor Swift for her birthday.
That same night, GQ global editorial director Will Welch teamed up with Buffalo Bills star Stefon Diggs and restauranteur Mario Carbone for a private VIP pre-Super Bowl gathering inside the swanky Nomad Library.
The partnership with Farfetch brought in the likes of Travis Scott, Odell Beckham Jr., DJ Zack Bia, Karrueche Tran and dozens of other stars from the worlds of sports and entertainment.
Partygoers were having such a great time that when the lights turned on at 2 a.m., the “Fein” singer hopped on the mic and convinced the venue to keep things bumping into the wee hours of the morning.
Rob Gronkowski kicked things off on Saturday with his annual beach party-meets-music festival.
Although the four-time Super Bowl champion was the star of the show, he was joined by musical guests Afrojack and Flo Rida.
Former New England Patriots teammate and podcast co-host Julian Edelman also stopped by to support the former tight end.
Later that night, Sports Illustrated rang in Super Bowl weekend by celebrating their newest swimsuit model Brittany Mahomes.
The WAG walked the red carpet Saturday in a custom Sports Illustrated bomber jacket just days after her cover shoot with the magazine went viral.
Along with Mahomes, several other celebrities such as Glen Powell, Diplo, Alix Earle and more also stopped by the over-the-top party, which was thrown at the XS night club.
Although Bebe Rexha was supposed to perform, her set was cut short due to technical difficulties.
However, the venue was seemingly able to fix the issues by the time that The Chainsmokers and KYGO took the stage well past after 1 a.m.
